ICS Blog Hop Avant-Garden

Happy New Year!

I am so excited, as today we kick off the annual Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration promotion AND to inspire you our blog hop theme this month is Let's Sale-A-Brate! How fun and how lucky are we to kick off the annual promo with a hop!

Have you seen the Sale-A-Bration catalog yet?  Wow, there are so many choices! If you don't have a copy you can see it here:, if you are one of my customers, I mailed you a copy last month. If you don't have a demonstrator and need a copy feel free to request one from me free!

As a demonstrator, I was able to preorder from the 2017 Occasions catalog, which meant that I was also eligible to earn Sale-a-Bration items early.  For this card, I chose to use the Sale-a-Bration stamp set Avant Garden.

Along with the Avant-Garden Stamp Set, I used the following Stampin' Up! products:

Daffodil Delight, Perfect Plum and Whisper White Cardstock
Daffodil Delight, Perfect Plum and Old Olive Ink Pads
Stitched Shapes Framelits

ICS Blog Hop Christmas Stockings


It's time for our monthly Inspire, Create and Share blog hop! This month our theme is "I am Dreaming of a White Christmas" and we're showcasing ideas using white on white! We hope you enjoy this beautiful hop and will become inspired to give the white on white look a try!

I used the Hang Your Stocking Stamp Set and Christmas Stockings Thinlits dies.  I don't know why I waited to get this combo.  I love making the stockings and the thinlits make it so easy to cut them out perfect. 

I wanted some bling on this card, so I backed the white stockings with red glimmer paper and also added a red bow. 

Along with the bundle, I used the following Stampin' Up! products:

Whisper White Thick Cardstock
Whisper White Cardstock
Red Glimmer Paper
Real Red Ink Pad
Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
Big Shot
Stampin' Dimensionals

I hope you enjoy my white on white project and all of the rest of the beautiful creations on this hop.  Please check out Joni Metra's blog for her awesome creation!
Have a wonderful Holiday Season and thanks for stopping by!

World Card Making Day Stampin' Up! Blog Hop

Welcome to our World Card Making Day Blog Hop using current Stampin' Up!® Products. This is such a fantastic way to celebrate this event with lots of amazing inspiration for you. You are currently visiting my blog - (Terri Takashige) in the (United States) and you will be visiting lots of different places in your hop today. There is a list at the end of the page which will help you to move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing projects!

I used Crumb Cake as my card base, with a layer of Whisper White and a layer of Crumb Cake stamped with the scroll from the Tuscan Vineyard stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I also used the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits (my current favorite!).  I had the word "hope" sitting on my desk and decided it needed to go on this card too (why not?).  The dandelions in the Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack make this card complete.  Of course, I had to add some Wink of Stella Clear on the white flower and the dandelions, but it's hard to see in the picture. 

Every day should be World Card Making Day!  The look and smile someone has when they receive a handmade card is priceless.

Thanks for visiting my blog today, there are so many more amazing ideas and inspiration you don't want to miss. Remember that currently you are at my blog - Terri Takashige, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next in the list.

Have a great day!
