Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop – Happy Holidays

Welcome to the October edition of the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. You are currently visiting Joanne Cantrell from a very tiny town smack dab in the middle of the United States.

I have been absent for the past couple months battling a mild illness. But, I have decided it’s time for a comeback and what better time to do that than during the Holidays?

I can’t wait for Christmas! Can you? Luckily we don’t have that long to wait…


OMG… there is still so much to do. Plus, there is Halloween and Thanksgiving to survive first! EEEEEEKKKKK!

The holidays are such a busy time for everyone. I think having a quick, go-to card design is what you need to help take off some of the holiday pressure. And, that’s just what I have for you today!

These cards use Designer Series Paper, an Itty Bitty sentiment, and a punch. So quick and easy!

When you have gorgeous paper to play with, it makes even a simple layout look AMAZING!

These cards were inspired by a card created by Mary Knabe.

The top piece of DSP is 3-1/2″ x 4″. The bottom piece is 1-3/4″ x 4″. And the strip for the sentiment is 1/2″ x 4″.

The Christmas trees are punched from the same card stock as the base

Wait a minute… That’s not a ChristmasCard! Well, I don’t know about you, but my birthday IS a holiday! Really… It is! In France… But hey, a holiday is a holiday! (Bastille Day, if you are curious!)

Well, that’s all I have for you this month. It sure feels good to be up and stamping again!

Hop along now…

Until next time… keep it simple, stampers!

🙂 Joanne
