Hopping with Kylie

Welcome to the first of this group’s blog hops.  I hope you are finding great, inspirational projects as you stop by each of our pages.  

First things first…  You are currently parked at my blog – Keep It Simple, Stampers.  I am Joanne Cantrell from a little tiny town at the very bottom of Illinois, smack dab in the middle of the United States.  I aim to keep my projects simple, but often get carried away because Stampin’ Up! offers such great embellishments!

The group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators has gathered together to learn a thing or two from Kylie Bertucci and her gang of merry stamping buddies.  It is a place where we can grow and learn to be the best demonstrators we can be for YOU, our beloved customers.

Here is my project that I created for you today.

Yes, it’s a gorgeous purple winter holiday card.    Who said Christmas has to always be red and green?  And who said all cards sent in the winter has to be a Christmas card?  And, who said that this sentiment couldn’t be used as a congratulations card as well?  It’s time to think out of the box, people!  

A little about the card.  I used Blackberry Bliss and Whisper White cardstock.  The stamp set is one of my favorites from the Holiday Catalog – Feather & Frost (147771).  I love the bold sentiments and the line art graphics.  Perfect for coloring or not.  I used the Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends – dark & light – to color the bird and the berries.  I used the Light Old Olive Blends for the leaves.

That’s it from me this time around…  Keep hopping along!

Until next time… keep it simple, Stampers!

🙂  Joanne

  1. Pretty card! I like non-traditional colors for Christmas. I’m also from a small southern Illinois town (Makanda). 🙂
