Merry Patterns - A Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Hello friends!  Welcome back to another Artisan Design Team blog hop!  You're either coming from the extraordinarily talented Rochelle Blok in Australia, or you're starting with me, Shannon Lane, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada; either way, get comfortable and stay a while - we've got some fabulous projects to share with you today! 

During the months of September and October, Stampin' Up! has added a FREE bonus for our hosts - or our big spenders! - with a very special stamp set called Merry Patterns.  This stamp set is exclusively available with orders of $375+, whether via a party or an individual order.  And it's a beauty!  

Last month, I used the reindeer, branch, and "Merry Christmas" stamps, so this month, I decided to switch it up and use the ones I hadn't played with yet.  I chose a colour pallet of Whisper White, Soft Sky, and Champagne - soft, serene, and elegant - and layered those beautiful candles for a background.  

This stamp set has so many beautiful images - it's fantastic to work with!  Check it out... 

Since my colour pallet was so light, I chose a coordinating pattern from the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper.  Isn't it lovely?  I love that even without using holiday paper, this card is still so Christmas-sy.  

October is a month of fantastic sales, and that Coffee Break paper can be yours for FREE!  It's one of my favourites - but aren't they all? - and this is a great time to stock up, as Designer Series Papers are Buy-3-Get-1-Free throughout October!  Click the image below to shop my Online Canadian Stampin' Up! store and see what else is on sale.  (Hint: everything you need to start your holiday cardmaking!)

There's no limit to this sale, so the more DSP the buy, the more packages you'll receive for FREE!

Let's hop across the ocean now and go visit Sylwia in Germany - her projects are always so beautiful!

Thanks so much for visiting today - see you again tomorrow!


October Ordering Bonus:  During the month of October, orders placed online through my Canadian Stampin' Up! store using host code XG72NK7W will receive a FREE yard of Stampin' Up! ribbon for every $25 spent (excluding shipping and taxes.)
