ICS Blog Hop Spooky Cat


Welcome to the ICS Blog Hop for September!  This month we are highlighting the Stampin' Up! 2017 Holiday Catalog.

I'm a cat person, so I HAD to get the Spooky Cat stamp set and cat punch.  And the Designer Series Paper?  Throw that in the mix too.  Love all of it!

And if you loved the treat test tube holders from the September 2016 Paper Pumpkin, they are in this holiday catalog - oh the possibilities!  If you are not a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, there is a special happening until September 10th, 2017 for new subscribers (how does half off your first month sound?).

Even the little potion bottles/beakers in the Spooky Cat set are cute.  You can't see it in this picture very well, but I used Perfect Plum ink for the potion and added some clear Wink of Stella, because everything is good with Wink of Stella.

Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie and Very Vanilla Cardstock
Spooky Night Designer Series Paper
Pumpkin Pie, Perfect Plum and Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pads
Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush

ICS Blog Hop Knotty Ways

Hello and welcome to the August 2017 ICS Blog Hop Knotty Ways!  This month we are highlighting ribbon from the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog and highlighting Christmas.  With temps to reach in the triple digits this week where I live, I welcome thinking of a cooler time of year, if only for this hop.

There is a great special going on this month to get all of us in the mood to start early on our Christmas projects so we thought we'd provide you with some inspiration using ribbon for Christmas projects! Enjoy the hop and you can read all about the special at the end of this post.

I don't have a lot of the ribbon from the new catalog (yet), so I chose to use some Basic Black Baker's Twine on my Christmas card, which highlights the new Carols of Christmas bundle, available as a pre-release this month (August 2017), and also in the upcoming 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.

Card Recipe:

Dapper Denim and Whisper White Cardstock
Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper
Window Sheets
Silver Glimmer Paper
Dapper Denim Ink Pad
Carols of Christmas Stamp Set 
Card Front Builder Thinlits
Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
Foam Adhesive Strips
Basic Black Baker's Twine
Seasonal Layers Thinlits (snowflake)
Island Indigo Reinker
Other:  Silica Beads (dyed using the reinker and a container)

During the month of August, customers will have early access to one of our top-trending bundles from the upcoming holiday catalog!  Contact me or visit me at for details about the Carols of Christmas Bundle! 

Thanks for stopping by on the hop today!  Now it's time to check out what beautiful project Anna has in store for us.

Happy Hopping and Happy (early) Holidays!
