Stampin' Up! Festive & Fun ~ Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop

Hey Stampers & Friends!  Welcome to the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop.  I'm excited to be part of this fun and creative group sharing stamping ideas with you today!

Our color challenge and photo inspiration for this month can be found in the photo below.  My husband and I went to Colorado at the end of September to escape the Texas heat.  This photo makes me want to go back!  It was such a relaxing trip with so many picture perfect views.

I've been playing with Stampin' Up!'s Festive & Fun stamp set this week and I can assure you, it does live up to its name!  This is the first week I've been focusing on Christmas cards this year and I am ready to make more, more, more!

I used all the challenge colors, except Crushed Curry, and that's just because there isn't a Crushed Curry Stampin' Blend.  Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends were used instead.  The pops of color against all the white make me happy. 

The pictures just don't do this card justice.  The Snowflake Sky 3D Embossing Folder was used on the white background giving the entire card a bit of something extra.  Also, I used a bit of Wink of Stella on the star, but that doesn't show up in the photos.  

Thanks for visiting my blog today.  Be sure to hop along with the links below for more card making inspiration.

Happy Stamping!
