{Studio Stampers October Blog Hop}


Hello and welcome to the studio stampers October blog hop!  If you are joining us in the hop you should have come here from Kristen Watson's  blog, if not why not start at the beginning with Karen and hop on down until you get back to me.

   I can't believe I am posting a Christmas card already, but if you plan on sending out hand made Christmas cards this year than you probably don't want to wait too long to get started on them, so, I hope I'm able to inspire you today to get out your Christmas cd's and start making Christmas cards! Everything I used to create this card is from A Muse Studio! The stamp set I used to create my card is one of my favorite Holiday/Winter sets in the Holiday catalog, "Winter Stag". A card like this is not something I am used to making, but I have to say I love the way my card turned out! I stamped the fir tree in Fern pigment ink. I stamped the deer using French Roast which has become my favorite color out of all of our pigment ink pads! I used a blender pen and the lid of my french roast ink pad to add some color to the body of my stag. I wanted it to be a subtle hint of color, so I opted not to use copics.  The sentiment was stamped with onyx black Versafine ink, and I added toffee twine and a button from our Cranberry button collection. I have to say that I really love my A|S buttons because you get so many different styles of buttons all in one color. Sometimes your card needs a certain style of button and I love always being able to find the perfect button when I need it!

              I hope that you have had a good time on the Studio Stampers Blog Hop today, and just in-case you have not been following along you can get to the beginning of the hop HERE.
