Stampin Up Artisan Blog Hop- Merry Patterns

We are back to showcase the super fun Hostess set Merry Patterns!
I wanted to break out some non traditional Christmas colors &
make 2 cards that are the same layout just embellished a bit differently.
For both cards I stamped the deer & the greeting in black.  
On the Blushing Bride version I embossed the "season" in white &
finished off with some bakers twine.
I got out my embossing paste for the Pool Party version. Once the paste was dry I decided I wanted to add some copper embossing powder so I laid the stencil back over & dabbed on some versamark. Finished off with copper embossing powder & that beautiful washi tape from the Holiday catalog!
Alrighty lets go see what fun Mindy has in store for us!

Stampin Up Artisan Blog Hop- Merry Patterns

 Welcome to a very special edition of the Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!
Today we get to share an exclusive host stamp set called Merry Patterns.
Check out the flyer below for all the details on how to get this set FREE!
I'm sure you are going to see a ton of fabulous Christmassy ideas on the hop so I wanted to throw in a twist 'cause that's just how I roll...Lol!
But I was so inspired by the candle card shown in the flyer that I had to make one, so now I have 2 cards to share with you!

Here's a closer look at both cards...

Those candles are soooooo fun! To get the longer candles I just stamped them twice & covered the overlap with the sentiment. I really enjoyed playing with this stamp set & I'm sure it will get tons of use as we near the Christmas season but don't forget about making a few birthday cards too.
Ok now its time to go visit Mindy, Woo Hoo!
