Stamp N Hop October Blog Hop Jump Start to Christmas

Hello and Welcome to October's Stamp 'N Hop Blog Hop.  We are a group of Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who come together once a month. 

You may of hopped along from a fellow UK Demo, Sue McDonald, thanks Sue!  or maybe your starting here? Either way you will find loads of inspiration this month.

This October we are working on the theme Christmas Jump Start!

I've made several different cards all with the same feel to them.

After finishing my cards I decided the snowman from Seasonal Chums would look great at the front of the fence, so I added him on dimensionals to my Blueberry Bushel card.

I love this DSP from the Annual Catalogue, it looks just like snow!

You can add different elements to your card's, snowflakes or maybe the tree branch from Seasonal layers

Loads of our colours work well for Christmas.

A quick tutorial video

Don't forget to hop along with everyone!  Pia Gerhardt is next, her work is always worth a look.
