Last Minute Christmas Cards — Stampin’ Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome to another Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!  There are 20 of us from around the globe who will be sharing our projects with you twice each month.  All you need to do to follow along is click on the link at the bottom of each post.

This is the current team’s last hop together, as our term has come to a close.  It has been a fun ride and I have loved getting to know these other ladies.  They are inspiring and they are amazingly talented, and I have been blessed getting to share this journey with them.

Our focus for this hop is on one of three different products.  Since I’m still focused on last minute Christmas cards, I am using the Hello December 2016 Project Life Card Collection to make cards rather than scrapbook pages.  And these are all super quick and easy!

hello-groupIn addition to the Project Life cards, I’ve also used the Fancy Frost dsp.  I love this paper — it dresses up simple cards so easily.

hello-trioI paired these little cards from the Hello December Accessory Pack with some of the Silver 3/8″ Glitter Ribbon and silver metallic thread.  The sentiment is from the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set and coordinating Christmas Greetings Thinlits dies.

hello-wreathThis card didn’t require any stamping at all.  Some staples and ribbon trim added some fun accents.

hello-deerI embossed the sentiment from Star of Light with silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  A bit of a silver Metallic Foil Doily and silver glitter ribbon peek out from underneath it.

You’re ready to hop on over to The Netherlands and visit Chantal de Kaste’s blog by clicking on the link below.  You can use Google Translate for any blogs for which you need translation help.  It’s so fun to hop around the world!


While this team won’t be hopping together anymore, there is a new team that’s coming around the corner.  There are some familiar faces and some faces you might not know yet, but they will all wow you with their creations in 2017.  Just in case you want to take a peak at the new team, here is a list of all of the new Artisans with links to their blogs.
