Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Hello...and welcome to the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop...our open hop for September!  I'm so happy you're here!
When the Artisan "box" arrives I'm always excited...eyes wide opened...and a bit anxious to see what our assignment might be.  Without fail the ideas pour in...and I typically jot down a few notes to remember some of the things that jump out at me...and I'm glad I do...because I tend to forget!  Ha!  Anyway... going over my notes for this project I saw that I had written down "pair sentiments - Thoughtful Banners and Oh, What Fun".  So...that's what I've done...with this holiday note card and matching gift bag.

For this sweet, sparkly note card I've used  holiday from Thoughtful Banners...and wishes from Oh, What Fun...

and I've used Happy Christmas from Oh, What Fun and from us Thoughtful Banners for my gift bag.  I absolutely love this kind of versatility!  What sentiments could you pair to get the just right sentiment or look for your project?

 Technique Tips:
  • Adorning your holiday cards and gift packaging don't necessarily require everything holiday!  Here, I've cut a couple of Flourish Thinlits dies in Emerald Envy Cardstock...and they're the perfect look for these holiday projects.
  • The smaller doily on the note card is actually the reverse, white side of one of the 2015-2017 In Color Doilies!  It's card or note card size...and works perfectly as the card's match to the bag's Delicate White Doily.  
Thank much...for joining us...the Stampin' Up Artisan Design we "travel" the globe for September!  If you're hopping in order you've just come from the talented Steffi...and I know  you don't want to miss what Susan has for you next.  It's sure to be fabulous!

 As always...


  1. Love these--always love your color selections.

  2. Beautiful projects Sue. Love how you turned the doily and all the other sweet little elements. These are great projects.
