Christmas Favorite ~ Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop

Thank you so much for joining us for the November Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad Blog Hop! This month our projects focus on Christmas. While we have yet to give thanks this month, some of us are already thinking about sending Christmas cards, what kind of packaging to present gifts in and how we want to deck our halls. On this month’s blog hop we are showcasing many of the Stampin’ Up! products that are available in the Holiday Catalog. You will see everything from cards to gift tags to 3-D decor and gift packaging. We hope you enjoy seeing how we use the products to create our projects and feel inspired to come up with some great projects of your own.
Remember you can order all of the products showcased from your Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.
You should have just left stop number 10 on the Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad blog hop – Heidi B with Stuck on Stamping If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn’t work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.
 When I first saw the Joyful Christmas stamp set, I just knew it was one I had to have!  I could just see it on Cherry Cobbler paper, embossed in gold and embellished with a gold embossed Frosted Finished Embellishment.  And let me tell you...I have made a ton of cards with this stamp set.  LOVE IT!  A few days ago I decided it would make for a some beautiful Christmas candles, so I found some pretty gold candles and got to work! 
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive
Ink ~ VersaMark
Stamp Set ~ Joyful Christmas
Other Supplies ~ Birch Paper Ribbon (Thankful Tablescape Kit), Cherry Cobbler Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Frosted Finishes Embellishments, Gold Embossing Powder
My mom has fallen in love with these, so I think I'm going to surprise her and give them to her to decorate her mantle for Christmas.  (Mom, if you are reading this today, act surprised, ok!!!)
I also made a quick card while I had all of my supplies out...take a look:
