Stamp Review Crew Bonus Hop -- Carols of Christmas

Stamp Review Crew blog banner

Hello!  Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew Bonus Blog Hop featuring the Carols of Christmas stamp set and coordinating Card Front Builder Thinlits.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  The Carols of Christmas stamp set and Card Front Builder Thinlits (available separately or as a Bundle) is a sneak peek from the Holiday Catalog that will be available for purchase on August 1st to help you get a head start on your Christmas projects.  

The Stamp Review Crew is an international group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who gather for a blog hop the first and third Mondays of the month to review a single stamp set.  The number of participants varies from hop to hop, but the ideas are plentiful as we take a stamp set through its paces.  By the time you've traveled through the hop, you are sure to find a number of innovative ways to use the featured stamp set.  So sit back, relax, and get ready to start pinning ideas to your Pinterest board!

To see the line up of artists for this Bonus hop, click here.  If you've already joined the hop and are traveling forward, you've arrived from Rochelle Blok's blog where you were presented with an amazing project to inspire your creativity.  If you're traveling backwards through the hop, you've seen Dawn Tidd's project and are ready to CASE! (Copy And Share Everything)

I have three projects to share with you.

My first card features what I consider the classic Christmas colors of Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green.  The card base uses Thick Whisper White cardstock.
