August Pals Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for the August Pals Blog Hop. Even though it's only August we want to provide some inspiration for your upcoming holiday projects. This month's blog hop will showcase new products from the 2013 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog. We hope you enjoy seeing how we use the new stamps, new punches and other accessories! 
You should have just left stop number 9 on the Pals Hop - Debra Simonis at Deb's Stampin Grounds. If so, you are in the right spot.  If you get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.
Have you fallen in love with the holiday catalog? I certainly have and what fun I have had creating with the new products! My clean and simple card today features the new Calm Christmas Stamp Set.

I apologize for my photo and the appearance of the dimensionals. I ran out of SU dimensionals and used another brand and boy I can really tell the difference! Gotta love those SU dimensionals! So glad I have more on order. 

Your next stop is Penny Nichols at Sierra Stampin!, stop number 11 on the Pals Blog Hop! Thanks for visiting – and I hope to see you next month!

Happy Stamping!

  1. I am also anxiously awaiting the arrival of my SU dimensionals. I ordered them yesterday. I used the foam from the leftover on the cling stamps on my project. I thought Tombo foam sheets would be OK, but I was wrong. I like the silver embossing on the bird and the frosted finishes embellishments really adds a nice touch to your card.

  2. Beautiful holiday card! Love the silver embossing!

  3. Such a striking card with the silver embossing!! Love it! Must remember to CASE this - with your permission!

  4. really gorgeous use of the embossing.
    hugs, m

  5. Laurie....elegance at it's best! Just stunning! Looking at it is just "peaceful" in itself!!! Love the silver embossing!

  6. Gorgeous! What more is there to say?

  7. Striking card, so pretty! I love the elegant simplicity of it.

  8. So clean and pretty! I love these colors.

  9. Wow, we were thinking alike, weren't we! Very pretty card! :-)

  10. Elegant and peaceful. Just beautiful.

  11. Just the simple strip of dsp adds another dimension of zing to the card in contrast to the simple elegance of the overall card. It is as many have already said "stunning!"

  12. LOVE this card and matching envelope! The colors are gorgeous.

  13. Love the elegant simplicity of your card, Laurie
