Thailand Achievers September Blog Hop

Welcome to the Thailand Incentive Trip Achievers Blog Hop for September 2017.  This is our LAST month our theme is the "Holiday Catalog Favorites". We have so many amazing ideas for the Holiday Catalog Products and want to make sure you get to see them so that you can get some ideas on how to use these amazing new items.

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the fun. At the moment you are visiting Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity .
Oh What Fun It Is To Show Off My Favorite Holiday Stamp Set!!!!!  It is the Half Full stamp set that caught my eye the very first time I flipped through my Holiday Catalog on page 42!  I have been missing a stamp set like this since I began making cards and this is truly my favorite one of all!  
It was created by Linda Bauwin, a fellow demonstrator who achieved the Million Dollars in Sales mark.  You get to design your very own stamp set when you hit this awesome goal!  And I am loving all the cool projects I can make with this stamp set.
For today's project I made it a Christmas card and put a little glimmer into the glasses with my clear wink of stella.  Did I say that I absolutely love this stamp set?  My friends and family know that I never pass up a good Merlot or Bordeaux!

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don't want to miss.  Remember that currently you are at my blog - Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next in the list.

Kylie's September International Highlights

http://www.craftykylie.com/2017/07/kylies-international-blog-highlights.html
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  I am joining a group that is being highlighted internationally by Kylie Bertucci and you are able to VOTE for my project. The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop so please vote for my project.

Our THEME in September is Sympathy. It is a really sad time when our friends and family lose someone they love. We have a wonderful gift of being able to let them know that we are thinking of them and have taken time to make them a very special card or project to show them we love them. Share the special gift we have with those that need it the most. 
For this card I made a clean and simple sympathy card.  I love how the Delightful Daisy Design Paper makes a soft background for this project.  I used the Thoughts & Prayers Stamp Set for the sentiment and die cut it out using the Layering Circles and the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I added a few Always Artichoke Enamel Dots as a finishing touch.  Here are the colors I chose for this card.  
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today make sure you head over to Kylie's blog to vote for my project. I would love to be chosen to do an international blog hop.  Here are all of the products I used for this card:

Happy Mail Monday!

It's Happy Mail Monday! I cannot tell you how happy it makes me to share these wonderful hand crafted creations that I receive each week! Enjoy! 
Did you know that I have a Pinterest board that showcases all of the cards that have been featured each Monday?  Yep, be sure to check it out!

Birthday Delivery For #tttc015

Today I played along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge #015.  Make sure to head over and play along!  For this challenge, the board was created by Design Team Member Rosanne Mulhern.  Take some inspiration from the challenge board below, using three elements in a row of your choice. Whatever row inspires you is what you are challenged to create! 
I chose the three squares across the board diagonally from the top left to the bottom right using ribbon, yellow and embossing.  The Birthday Delivery Stamp Set was the perfect blend along with the coordinating DS Paper for this bright Birthday card.  Here is the color trio I used for this project:
I embossed the sentiment in Copper and then die cut it with the Layering Ovals Framelits.  I put a little mess of copper thread behind the sentiment for added texture as well.  And then used a ribbon border punch with the copper foil paper and added some glitter enamel dots to the center.

Thanks for stopping by today. Here are the Stampin' Up! products I used for today's project...

Pals September Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals September 2017 Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month our theme is “My Favorite Holiday”. Sit back and enjoy the view while the Pals treat you with projects for the upcoming Autumn and Winter holidays. 

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along. 
I used a variety of stamp sets for this fun Halloween Birthday Card!  I have met just a handful of people whose birthday is on Halloween, so that gives me the opportunity to use some spooky elements on a few birthday cards.
To get that bubbly brew I stamped the bubbling bottles from the Spooky Cat stamp set first in Basic Black.  Then I covers the potion bottles with the coffee cup.
I used my Cajun Craze Stampin' Write Marker on the coffee cup lid and then swooshed some Clear Wink of Stella over it and along the top of the coffee collar as well.  The sentiment comes from the Merry Cafe'  Stamp Set.  And that black bat and spider web were die cut using the Seasonal Tags Framelits Dies.
Thank you so much for hopping with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals today. Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on October 11, 2017 for “Wicked Folds”. Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below. Don’t forget to leave us a comment. We’d love to hear what you have to say about our Favorite Holiday. By the way, what’s your favorite holiday?

Festive Phrases For #tttc014

Today I played along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge #014.  Make sure to head over and play along!  For this challenge, the board was created by Design Team Member Jeanie Stark.  Take some inspiration from the challenge board below, using three elements in a row of your choice. Whatever row inspires you is what you are challenged to create! 
I chose the three squares diagonally across the board using the gold, embellishment and celebrate.  The Festive Phrases Stamp Set worked perfectly for this cute birthday pizza box!  Let me tell you those pizza boxes are super cute!!!
I used the Sweet & Sassy Framelits with the Bundle of Love Specialty Design Series Paper.  I embossed the sentiment in gold and die cut it using the Layering Ovals Framelits.
On the Tiny Birthday Cake Card I used the Big on Birthday Stamp Set and a row of Rhinestones colored with my Melon Mambo Marker.  I also colored in the hearts on the pizza box sentiment with my marker as well.  This one turned out pretty cute, if you ask me :)

All About Him for #GDP103

Today I came up with a few different cards playing along with the Global Design Project Challenge #GDP103.  This week is all about HIM (isn't it tho! lol) - you can create for a baby, friend, brother, partner, husband, father, grandfather, son, teacher, coach - the list goes on - and on.  To play along, head over to the Global Design Project and see what the design team came up with. 
I have made cards for fall craft sales over the last several years.  This will be the first year I am not participating in them as life has just been a bit busier for me with the building of our house.  I still make a handful of cards every now and then that I keep in a cards for sale box, as many of my friends and family still want to get those special handmade cards.  Here are a few of the masculine cards I made for you to see today.


I love the variety of ideas that a person can come up with when they choose a theme for their project.  This was such a fun challenge this week.  Thanks so much for stopping by :)

    Then since I was on a roll, I decided to make a card in Tangerine Tango.  I have to say I love this Foil Frenzy Design Series Paper.  Thanks for stopping by today. Here are all of the Stampin' Up! products I used for this card:
