Positive Inkers Blog Hop - November 2023

Hello Stamping Friends! I’m thrilled to join the fabulous Positive Inkers Design Team for our November 2023 Blog Hop. We are a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the globe who are super-excited to share our love of creativity. I’m so happy you stopped by today! 

If this is the fist time you are visiting, please let me introduce myself. My name is Anne Marie Hile and I live in San Antonio, Texas. Welcome!

Our theme for this month is: Christmas

Well, it’s November and Christmas will be here before we know it! It’s a great time to get started on those holiday cards, if you haven’t already. I always plan to start quite a bit earlier on my cards, but life gets so busy sometimes, doesn’t it? I still have a considerable amount to create so this month’s theme was perfect inspiration and I hope it inspires you as well.  

*I’ve listed details for my projects below and there is a full supply list at the very end of this post.

Color Combo:
I am really enjoying the Merry & Bright stamp set and coordinating dies from the Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog. I am a big fan of non-traditional colors for holiday cards. Don’t get me wrong, there is something classic and elegant about a red and green Christmas card. I do enjoy them. But sometimes I do like to create with unexpected colors for a little pop of fun and this suite of product definitely delivers there! 

The Merry Bold & Bright Designer Series Paper has to be one of my all-time favorites right now. Not only is it perfect to create whimsical holiday cards but many of the patterns are perfect for everyday occasions, too. I added four 3-5/8” x 1-1/8” strips on the Basic White layer for a little extra detail. Those little lights just make me smile! 

I also am really enjoying the Melon Mambo and Granny Apple Green Foil Paper in this suite. It really packs a “WOW” and brings the die-cut bulbs to life. The string, filaments and bulb caps were cut from Silver Adhesive-Backed Foil. I do believe the Glimmer paper is out of stock right now, but it could also be subbed with Silver Foil or even Blueberry Bushel Cardstock and would still look fantastic! 

I added a simple sentiment popped up on dimensionals and finished everything off with the Iridescent Adhesive-Backed Discs. These embellishments are so awesome because they add lots of detail without bulking up your card too much. Love that! 

Finally a peek inside the card. I simply added another strip of that fabulously festive paper and a coordinating sentiment. Just for fun, I added more of the discs for a little pop of shine, too. Such a fun card, don’t you think? 

I hope you enjoyed my project today and that you are inspired on this hop to create some thank you cards as well. Please stop by to visit everyone on the hop and leave us a comment to say hello. We’d all love to hear from you and so appreciate you stopping by. If you are following the hop, you will head to visit my sweet friend, Jo Blackman
