Pals September Blog Hop: My Favorite Season

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for September 2016. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month our projects represent our favorite year end Season. It may be Autumn, Winter, Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas (and maybe even a combination!) We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

I had been playing with the new stamp set called Christmas Pines, when I had the idea to mix it with a little watercolor and the tree die from Santa's Sleigh dies. I watercolored a panel, then die cut the tree out. I stamped & embossed the pine image on the tree only, then stamped & embossed the scattered looking snow/star image on the back ground. All products Stampin' Up!

I think this made an elegant looking card that actually took very little time to create. It almost has a dreamy quality about it. The gold metallic thread and sequins complete the look. Supply list below. 

Thanks for visiting. To continue with the hop, please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below. We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop!

  7. Kim, I love every little thing about this card! Your watercoloring is perfect and your stamping in the tree is something my brain would never have come up with!

  8. Kim, your projects are always so unique and this is no exception! Love it!

  9. Kim, This normally very quiet follower just wanted to check in and say that I really LOVE how you always make the Stampin Up products YOURS! It's truly inspiring how you craft so many different cards using the products in your own way! Example: Your halloween card using the pinecones! So creative!!! Thank you for sharing! Warmly, a quiet lurking fan. :)

  10. The watercoloring replicates the Pals Blog Hop header.... :-) I love the simple pine leaf wrapping itself around the tree... back to nature-lovely! I agree with Christine above... I love how you put your personality and talents into your cards!

  11. Such a great card Kim! I love your style ~ you always give me new ideas!!
