Hey there! Welcome to the Thailand Incentive Trip Achiever's Blog Hop for October . This is our first hop with those that have earned the prestige trip with Stampin' Up!® to Thailand next July. This month our theme is "Inspired by Nature", as many of us live in different areas around the world and have varied seasons to enjoy.
You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Carol Payne Stamps, or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Carol Payne.
With Christmas crafting in full swing, my thoughts for nature turned to a new stamp set and framelits I have just started playing with from the Holiday Catalog, Santa's Sleigh!
In addition to the sleigh, this set contains an awesome pine tree and a reindeer. The coordinating (and bundled to save 10%) Santa's Sleigh Thinlet dies contain dies to cut out both the tree and the deer, making this card so easy to create!
I stamped a forest of trees with Always Artichoke ink on Always Artichoke card stock, then stamped the deer with Crumb Cake on both sides of Kraft 12"x12" cardstock. The Kraft cardstock is one shade lighter on one side than the other. It's like having two colors in one sheet!
To give a look of frostiness on the cut-out pine I brushed on Clear Wink of Stella.
The greeting is from Santa's Sleigh, cut with a Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlet. I tied a piece of Cherry Cobbler thread from the Baker's Twine Trio Pack in an simple bow.
Inside I used more Santa's sleigh stamps to decorate the modified z-fold.
Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don't want to miss any of it! Remember, you are at my blog - Carol Payne, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next in the list!
