Welcome to InKing Royalty’s August Blog Hop. Stampin’ Up!’s 2015 Holiday Catalog is just around the corner (it’s live on September 1) – and this amazing book is filled to the brim with incredible bundles at discounted prices. Who doesn’t love to save with bundles?!? Today we are Bundled Up for the Holidays as we celebrate these amazing stamp set bundles from the Holiday Catalog. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
I think this has to be the best holiday catalog ever! I know that I pretty much want everything in it, and I had a hard time limiting myself on my first order! The first bundle I had to play with was the adorable Howl-o-Ween Treat stamp set and the matching Boo to You framelits.
That cute bat (or is it an owl?) just makes me smile! As a matter of fact, as I was creating this card, I was reminded of a book I read growing up–“Sam and the Firefly” by P.D. Eastman. I was a little tempted to color his eyes yellow, haha! I resisted, though, and used black candy dots instead to make his eyes stand out. I also popped him up with dimentionals.
I used the Happy Haunting DSP to choose my colors, and way back in the olden days, before I met Brian (King), I would have been happy with just one layer on my card, but he has pulled me over to the dark side, and now I have to layer everything! It really does make a difference! Did you notice the whisper white layer under the sentiment? Yeah, I saw that on one of Brian’s cards, too. I tried every which way I could think of to get one of the spider web doilies on this card (I LOVE them!), but it just didn’t look right, so I had to settle for some bakers twine. This was such a fun card to make, and I can’t wait to see what everyone else has created!
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!
