September Blog Hop

Welcome to the September Fun 'n Crafty Stampers Blog Hop! This month we are featuring products from the new Holiday catalog. There is so much in the catalog! You can order products and get inspiration for cards, Project Life, home decor, gift wrap, and more.

I decided to share a card made with the Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper and a greeting from the Holiday Home stamp set. From my first glance at the Holiday Catalog, the Holiday Home stamp set went on my wish list because it is so versatile. I did not really consider the Motley Monsters papers until I saw then in person. The patterns are fun, cute, and versatile.

Here is the 12x12 sheet of paper used for my card and the finished card:



Tips:
1. Consider how you can trim a piece of Designer Series Paper to enhance your card design. I looked at the sheet above and thought about how it could be used in distinct sections for different cards. I trimmed around specific monsters for this halloween card.
2. Don't worry if you do not have an exact color match. I love Stampin' Up!'s color system, but I don't have all of the ink pads. Even though the paper uses Tangerine Tango, I was still able to use my Tangelo Twist ink pad to stamp the greeting.

What a fun card! I would never have thought to use the honeycomb embossing folder but it works great! Great tips too. :) Thanks for sharing.

I was not originally planning to use the honeycomb embossing folder, but I found the black piece already embossed in my basket of scraps. It was leftover from another card project.
