Ink. Stamp. Share. October Showcase Blog Hop

Welcome to the Ink. Stamp. Share. October Showcase Blog Hop as we share new ideas and projects featuring current Stampin' Up! It's a great time for our Design Team Members to share what they are currently working on and putting a spotlight on products that you might not be familiar with. With the holidays getting closer, you may even see ideas that will help you create your own wonderful creations for family and friends. 
Today I decided to shift my focus from Fall themed projects to create a fun and festive Christmas card. I recently got the North Pole Mischief stamp set and I have been dying to ink it up and try it out. I decided to pair it with one of the designs from the Celebrate Everything Designer Series Paper Host Reward, which you can earn Free with a qualifying order or party. The bright, colorful ornaments in this design worked perfectly with the mischievous stamp image I chose for my design. The colors for my card design have been chosen from this paper, which makes it so much easier to have them all coordinate.

This adorable Christmas card is so bright and cheerful and is sure to make someone smile when they receive it. I chose to use Granny Apple Green as my main color for this card and I colored the image with Stampin' Blends Markers using colors from the designer series paper. I die cut the center of the card front layer to create a frame added a Granny Apple Green cardstock skinny frame around the edge to give it definition. I added the focal layer underneath so that the image was centered inside the frame. For the sentiment, I stamped the image with Granny Apple Green Classic ink and I colored several of the Iridescent Pearls with the Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends Marker to coordinate with the card design. Using a piece of Poppy Parade cardstock, I layered it with the sentiment to help make it pop. I love that the Parakeet Party Metallic Woven Ribbon is a close match for the Granny Apple Green cardstock and I tied a simple bow and attached it to the sentiment label with a Mini Glue Dot. I added the sentiment to the card front with Dimensionals to finish off the card design. This card design would be perfect for the animal lover in your family, especially if they have both dogs and cats.
