The Joy of Sets Blog Hop

Hello Friends!! Today I am participating on The Joy of Sets Blog Hop which is focusing on products out of our Holiday Catalog, so be sure to check everyone's blog as I am sure you will enjoy watching all the holiday projects and I know you will get tons of inspiration for your next creation!

I always recommend that you have a pen and pencil available as you go thru the blog hop as I know that there will be items that you will want to get, so write it down and start making your shopping list :)  - you can read below about my ordering incentive if you choose to place an order with me :)

For this blog Hop I decided to go with a Halloween project!! I love this holiday and since it is soon to arrive, lets get ready for it!! don't you agree?? 

The card I am showing today features the Toil and Trouble designer series paper, I love the colors on it and I love that you can die cut some of the designs on this paper with the framelits on this suite!! More and more Stampin' Up! is coordinating the bundles with the designer series paper, so not only can you cut the stamped images but you can also cut the images on designer series paper!! how clever is that!! 

At the time I was making my card I had not received yet my framelits so I did have to hand cut a lot of the designs but quite honestly it wasn't that bad of a task, so it is manageable, so don't stress about fussy cutting.. 

The background was stamped using the buffalo check stamp set! this has become one of my favorite stamps for real!! you can use it for all occasions!! no kidding, I have used it so much that you would not believe it!! 

Some ideas for the Buffalo Check stamp set - You can do tone on tone (stamp in the same color as the cardstock you are using) or you can make combinations, like the one I did on my card below it is using a darker color than the cardstock, also you can do like crumb cake, greens or reds shades of cardstock and stamp the buffalo check on early espresso and you will get a background perfect for like Christmas cards or masculine cards, or you can do whisper white cardstock with light colors and it would be perfect to like baby shower cards, so again the options are infinity! 
So if you don't have this stamp set, I highly recommend that you add it to your shopping list! you will love it.. 

The Halloween cards that I made on this week's FB live did have the background made with the Buffalo Check stamp set, you can check these cards HERE


   
The sentiment and the star came from the takeout box bundle, this one is a great bundle as it makes a little treat box, and the coordinating stamp set has stamps that would go perfect for valentines, Halloween, Christmas or any other occasion, this is another great bundle that should probably need to be on your shopping list! you won't regret it!
