Fall for Holiday Countdown # 9: Smitten Mittens

It's weekend, my friends. Yay! I'm all set up at the Ready Set Crop event, spending the weekend with some of my favorite crafty friends. I hope you're doing something fun (and not waiting for one of the beastly hurricanes to arrive... prayers to those of you in the path of Irma.)

If you're visiting my blog for the first time today, welcome! I've been counting down some of my favorite products in the new Stampin' Up Holiday catalog with 12 days of fun, fall projects. We're on day #9. And I'm pulling out one of the stamp sets that first caught my eye when I looked through the catalog. It's called Smitten Mittens and it is adorable. Great for holiday, but also winter and even Valentine's day -- I can't wait to use that "Smitten" greeting!

Fun, right? I can see so many different color schemes with this one, too, but I took my inspiration from the cover of the new holiday catalog...

Here's the cover:

I loved the reds and blues together so I decided to pair Real Red, Pool Party, Powder Pink and Garden Green. Here's a look at my finished project:

I also used the new Quilted Christmas 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. So many fun prints in there! I showed a few of them in my video below and we'll be playing with the Quilted Christmas suite soon!

Okay... I hope you're enjoying my little visual tour of the new catalog! If you'd like to place an order for some new goodies, I would certainly appreciate that! Be sure to use the hostess code WK7DFWJ7 at checkout. And if you'd like to have a fun night of craftiness with me on Facebook, be sure to join my online FB party to culminate this countdown ... you can join that HERE.

That's it for today. I hope you have a great weekend, and I'll be back tomorrow (probably a bit later in the day) with some more ideas!

Thanks for following along and "see" you soon!

  5. That stamp set it adorable! Love the matching frame list! Thank you for another great card idea!!
