Merry Patterns - a BONUS blog hop from the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team!

Hello friends - welcome to a very special Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop!  You're currently visiting me, Shannon, in Calgary, Alberta Canada.  My artisan friends and I are very excited to be launching a brand new exclusive stamp set today... and it's a beauty! 

Say hello to Merry Patterns!  

This gorgeous stamp set is not just festive, it's FREE!  Wait, whaaaat?!  Yeah!  But before we get to that, let's have a peek at a fun card I created with it.  

I was instantly drawn to the deer in a printed sweater, and I knew I had to make him my focal point!  The snowflakes on his sweater coordinated nicely with the background paper, found in the Christmas Around The World DSP, coming up in the brand new Stampin' Up! Holiday 2017 Catalogue, being released TOMORROW!

For a limited time, get the Merry Patterns Stamp Set FREE when you host a party with $300 USD/$375 CAD in sales. You’ll receive this exclusive holiday stamp set in addition to the fabulous Stampin’ Rewards you’ll earn when you host a qualifying Stampin’ Up! party. This offer ends on October 31, so don’t wait.  I'm booking private parties and classes for the Fall, so give me a shout to be the first of your friends to receive this gorgeous set!  Not the partying kind?  Make your list, check it twice... and then turn that order into your own personal party!  I won't tell... you can even tuck it away and surprise yourself at Christmas.  :) 

And since we're all in the holiday spirit now, I really ought to mention that the full Stampin' Up! 2017-2018 Holiday Catalogue will be available on September 1st.  That's TOMORROW!  I've been playing with some gorgeous new supplies already and trust me, you're going to LOVE what's coming!  Want some FREE holiday goodies?

Yeah - I said free!  This month's ordering bonus is a GREAT ONE!  This bonus is for August only - so today is the VERY LAST DAY! - and only through my Online Canadian Stampin' Up! Store!  Read on... 

August Ordering Bonus:  Spend $50 or more (before shipping and taxes!) in my Online Canadian Stampin' Up! store using this month's host code - 4BG2MCM6 - and you'll receive a free grab bag of BRAND NEW supplies from the upcoming 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue shipped on September 1st!  Don't miss out on this awesome bonus!  Valid August 1-31 in Canada only.

I'm also busy this week whipping up a video tutorial for this beauty of a card, which will be featured on the blog soon - but this tutorial is an exclusive freebie for my newsletter subscribers!  Want to have it delivered to your inbox?  Check it out...

Now that all of that fun stuff is out of the way, let's hop over to my lovely friend Sylwia in Germany to see what masterpiece she has created for us.  I love how Sylwia's projects are so calm and serene.  

Thanks so much for stopping in today - I'll see you again soon!

  1. What a fun card! I like it with the black bling - it's a whole different feel than those that are using gold or silver.

  2. So awesome Shannon! Christmas can come ;)

  3. Great card Shannon! You always have such bold colour combos and inspire me to branch out with mine!

  4. I love how you have the pine boughs tucked behind your adorable deer :)
