Fancy Friday & DSP Giveaway!

 

Hey Everybody! It's that time of the month again {hee hee}. . . yup, Fancy Friday! This month we were challenged to use DSP as a focal point or main element on a project. . . so. . .
Pretty simple! It was hard to choose a favorite DSP, I love quite a few, but at the moment I am in absolute LOVE with the new Under the Tree DSP from the Holiday Catty! There are SO many possibilities! AND, with such neutral patterns, it isn't just for Christmas!
Another very simple, very quick, anyone can make it even if they have never stamped a day in their life card!

Now, let's go see what everyone else has created, shall we? Continue on by hopping over to Cathy's blog!

Stampin' Up Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome back to another Stampin' Up! 2014 Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Be sure to keep hopping and see what artisans from around the world have created!

I just can't get enough of the Merry Everything stamp set! I know I have already used it on a project this month. . . but, I couldn't resist just one more!

Actually. . . truth be told, I thought I was done with the October box. . . then I remembered that there are 5 Thursday's this month. Luckily I had this "reject card" from my Stamps in the Mail program which also uses the Merry Everything stamp set. Lucky me! I am saved! Not that I don't like this card, I just felt it wasn't quite what I wanted for my subscribers, so it has now become a "bonus" project, and a double duty card for this weeks post as I have been under the weather and have not been up for creating much.


Now, let's go see what Cindy has created for our extra October project!

Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop-Grateful For You

Welcome Back to another Stampin' Up! 2014 Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Be sure to join us as we travel around the world to see what inspiration and fun projects this international team has in store to share with you!

It's no secret that fall is my absolute favorite time of year! Especially since this is the season that we are reminded to give thanks for all we are blessed with and grateful for. . . though this is something I think should be done all year round. . . but with our busy lives, perhaps it is good that we have a special occasion set aside for us to make time to give thanks.

I am not a big decorator, SURPRISE! Though we have lived in our current home for 8 years now, it is still seemingly "empty" as far as decorations go. . . I am not big on lots of things to dust. But last year I did manage to make a very cute harvest banner with the Build a Banner Simply Created kit. Since I already have a cute banner to display, I decided to use the kit for something else. My friend Melody Hyde had a cute idea to sew two of the banners together to make a cute pocket, and I thought it was a very clever idea. . . so I went with it!

I used linen thread to sew the pieces together, then I decorated it with my For All Things stamp set. . . I just LOVE this set! I added some Autumn Wooden Elements and Blackberry Bliss Ribbon, then stuffed it full of yummies! This will make a perfect little something to hang on junior's door and surprise him on Thanksgiving morning. . .
. . . that is, if I can resist eating the yummies before then!

Let's go see what Cindy has been creating, shall we?!

Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop-Seasonally Scattered

Hey There! Welcome Back to another Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop! Be sure to continue on the hop to see what Artisan's from around the world have to share this week!

Here is a simple card using Seasonally Scattered. 
I water-colored the background on watercolor cardstock, then on the foreground I embossed the "thanks" with gold embossing powder, cut out the letters so the watercolor background would show through, and then popped the panel up with some dimensionals. Very simple.

Let's go see what Cindy has been up to, shall we?
