Hello Crafty Friends!
I was super excited to share this cute project with my stampers last weekend &
now I get to share it with you!

You may have already gotten a peek at it on Instagram but if not here it is...

I have wanted to make this little guy for over a year & just never got around to it so I was pretty certain that someone out there had already done it & sure enough this cute project by Erica Cerwin popped up on Pinterest,  Click Here to see it. I made a few tweaks so here is my video tutorial-

Stampin Up Artisan Blog Hop- Merry Patterns

We are back to showcase the super fun Hostess set Merry Patterns!

I wanted to break out some non traditional Christmas colors &
make 2 cards that are the same layout just embellished a bit differently.

For both cards I stamped the deer & the greeting in black.  

On the Blushing Bride version I embossed the "season" in white &
finished off with some bakers twine.

I got out my embossing paste for the Pool Party version. Once the paste was dry I decided I wanted to add some copper embossing powder so I laid the stencil back over & dabbed on some versamark. Finished off with copper embossing powder & that beautiful washi tape from the Holiday catalog!

Alrighty lets go see what fun Mindy has in store for us!
