All Things Stampin' Up! Blog Hop


Welcome to the first-ever Blog Hop I have participated in!!! I hope you'll like these projects, 'cause I sure loved making these. :) And of course, PLEASE show me some love by leaving me a comment. Thank you!

First, I'd like to show you the projects as an ensemble.
With Thanksgiving this week, I thought I'd make some things that are appropriate for the occasion.  The first is a Hostess Appreciation card. :)  I actually don't have anything in the Domestic Goddess suite.  So I downloaded the paper and the stamp brush set digitally.  The beauty of using digital paper is that I only have to print as much as I need, so there's no ink wastage.  Another bonus for this particular stamp brush set?  Each utensil is its own image; unlike the stamp in the catalog, which is a set of 1.
My Supplies List (all supplies and images by Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamp Set(s): Now You're Cookin' (digital stamp brush set, #123149)
Ink: Calypso Coral
Papers: Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Domestic Goddess DSP (digital, #122355)
Accessories: Pool Party Ruffled ribbon, Designer Frames embossing folder

Now, with a big dinner ahead of you, you will need to have place cards for everyone at the table.  This is my version.  I used the Top Note Die and Two Tags die for this.
My Supplies List (all supplies and images by Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamp Set(s): Gently Falling
Ink: Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze
Papers: Pool Party, More Mustard, Spice Cake DSP
Accessories: Top Note die, Two Tags die, Corner rounder punch, Modern Label punch, Word Window punch, Pool Party Ruffled ribbon, sponge

Lastly, a small party favor.  This is made by cutting a piece of DSP down to 5 1/2" by 8 1/2".  Using the Simply Score board, place the INSIDE of the box facing up.  Score at 2", 4", 6" and 8".  Turn 90-degrees, and score at 2".  See further instructions HERE.
My Supplies List (all supplies and images by Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamp Set(s): Hodgepodge Happiness (retired)
Ink: Pool Party
Papers: Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, Spice Cake DSP
Accessories: 1 3/8" circle punch, Scalloped Oval punch, Scallop Edge border punch, Crop-a-Dile, Pool Party Ruffled ribbon

That's the conclusion of my offerings for this blog hop.  I hope you enjoyed spending time here.
