Welcome to the Pals September, 2018 Blog Hop. The 2018 Holiday Catalog from Stampin’ Up! Is out and the Pals are excited! Sit back while we share creations from “Our Favorite Holiday”.

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

My Favorite Holiday is Christmas!  I love the spirit of the season with happiness, gifts, and spending time with family and friends.  What is not to love?  For me, I love the giving part.  And I like to make things, wether it be paper crafted or baked.  With that in mind, I came up with this card.


Stampin' Up!, Candy Cane Season, Festive Farmhouse, Banner Triple Punch, Jackie Beers

Candy Cane Season Bundle, 149927


Aren’t those candy canes the cutest?    The candy cane banner could easily be a tag attached to a gift or better yet, some sweet baked goods!  I had that in mind when I first created the card.  I shared it with my Stamp Club on Sunday with a different look to the tag.  Here is that card.



This banner is much brighter!  Because of the business of the banner, I used a brighter green for the bow and sentiment.  This version uses Shaded Spruce where the first version uses Mossy Meadow.  My Stamp Club loved the beautiful Designer Series Paper.  As do I !  However, I think the solid background on the banner makes the candy canes, and the sweet sentiment, really pop.  I love both though!

I have the measurements listed for you below, as well as the supplies I used.  A little TIP for the candy canes:  I cut a strip of Very Vanilla card stock 3 X 6.  Stamp three of the candy cane outlines beginning from left to right, and then stamp the bow on the far right end.  When you punch, because the bow and candy cane are both on the punch, start with the far left candy cane and move to the right.  Punch the bow last.  That way the bow is punching nothing for the first candy cane and then scraps after that.  It really is pretty impossible to line up the bow and candy cane to work in one punch.  I hope that helps you.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today.  I very  much appreciate it and I love to read your comments.  Please continue on and see all of the great projects my fellow Pals have created..
