Keeping Christmas Blog Hop - September 25, 2020

 Good Morning!

It's September 25th!  

Time for a Keeping Christmas Blog Hop.

Did you know Christmas is just three months away? THREE MONTHS!

Have you started your Christmas cards?

Well, whether you have or not, come hop with us and see some holiday inspiration!

I have four cards today.  Actually, two pairs.  I tried out a new-to-me technique of Stamping Faux Monoprint.  Jennifer McGuire has a great tutorial on her blog.  Here are two I did and turned into cards.


Now hop along the list below to see the rest of the Design Team's projects:

Krafty Chicks Challenge #526 - All Occasions

Good Morning!
It's time for a new challenge at Krafty Chicks Challenge today and I'm your host.  I normally host the Christmas challenge, but I had surgery earlier in the month and so Lori and I switched hosting.  Today is our All Occassions challenge.  That means birthday, get well, thank you, sympathy, etc.

I created this card for my Stamp Nation penpal.  I've had this stamp by Lil' Inker Designs for a while and finally got around to coloring it.  I love all those kitties.  I chose a rainbow color scheme for them and then left all the accessories white.

Please stop by the Hen House and check out Leanne, Lori and Robyn's projects.  It's Robyn's last week with us so make sure and give her some blog love!  Then come share an All Occasion card with us this week!

Krafty Chicks Challenge #525 - CAS (Clean and Simple)

Good Morning!

I've been ahead everyday this week.  I have to keep reminding myself today is Thursday, not Friday!  Guess it's wishful thinking.  I've been discombobulated for a week.  I'm blaming it on "post-surgical brain". That's a thing, right? LOL

Yet, because it is Thursday it's time for a new challenge at Krafty Chicks Challenge.

My card is all stamping today.  Last month's Stamp Nation Penpal theme was CAS so this fit both CAS bills.  

Please stop by the Hen House and see the rest of the team's projects.  Then come play with us and share a Clean and Simple card with us!

Krafty Chicks Challenge #524 - Christmas

Hello there!  I cannot believe it's already Thursday.

First a holiday on Monday and then I had surgery on Tuesday so I'm all kinds of turned around on my days!  

Yet since it IS Thursday, it's time for a new challenge at Krafty Chicks Challenge.

I had some leftover background of the shaving cream technique backgrounds I used last month in another challenge.  So I cut out trees for this week's challenge.  I place them on a sponged blue background with a couple stitched die cut snow hills framed in a wonky stitched rectangle frame.  Then all of that was adhered to a circle background stamp by Hero Arts stamped in Twilight ink from Catherine Pooler Inks.  The sentiment is also from Hero arts and inked in Something Blue CP ink.  I added some clear sequins from Crater Lake sequins by Catherine Pooler.  

Stop by the Hen House and see Leanne and Lori's projects as well as our Guest Designer, Robyn's.  Then come make some Christmas cards.  Christmas is inching closer and closer!

Krafty Chicks Challenge #523 - Stamp Act

Hello!  It's Thursday once again!  It's also the first Thursday of September.  Time for our Stamp Act challenge at Krafty Chicks with Leanne as our hostess.

I used the multi layer stamp set, Vineyard, a Hero Arts Color Layering Heroscape set for my card today.  It was really fun playing around with the set.  I stamped about six different color combos with it to see what I liked best.  Everything on here came with the set --- background, trees, buildings, balloons, sentiment.  It's really a cool set.

Please check out the other Chicks' projects at the Hen House and welcome our September Guest Designer, Robyn.  Give her a warm welcome!  Then, come play along with us, just remember this week you must have stamping on your card.

Krafty Chicks Blessings!
