2018 Holiday Showcase Blog Hop

Welcome to the Inky Friends blog hop!  We have a great line up showcasing new stamps and products from the brand new Stampin' Up Holiday catalog.

I am so happy to have had a chance to stamp a few cards with the adorable line art set Trick or Tweet.

Instead of using DSP, I made my own with the great background stamp Buffalo Check.  I applied an oval mask over the stamped images before stamping the background.

Of course if there is a kitty stamp you know I have to have it!

Each card is a single layer with the exception of the tiny cut out pumpkin.  I know it is probably silly but one product that I am delighted to have is the itty bitty Mini Stampin' Dimensionals! They are the best thing to be able to add a little extra to a card by elevating a tiny image.  The new colors of the Stampin' Blends so fun too!  Blackberry Bliss is definitely my favorite... such a rich deep purple!

On this last card I did a little extra sponging of some additional inks on the background.   I started with Crushed Curry, then added some Pumpkin Pie and Blackberry Bliss.
