Paper Crafting Blog Hop - Christmas Means More

Welcome to our November 2020 Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrators from around the world!  Talented Demonstrators from all over the globe including the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia are participating.  Get ready to be wowed by a variety of creative projects and design styles!  You may have arrived from Amber's blog.  She had a fabulous project!

Today I'm featuring the Christmas Means More stamp set.  I was drawn to this set because of the quotes from my favorite Christmas movies.  We quote Elf frequently in our house and I'll never forget Zuzu's petals in It's a Wonderful Life.

This first project uses the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper, All The Trimmings Ribbon, and Home Together Dies.  I absolutely LOVE every sheet of this paper pack!  I'm not gonna lie...being a former world language teacher I had to purchase a few packs of this DSP just for the multi-language greeting sheet!

Next up is a card that came to mind as soon as I saw the quote from It's a Wonderful Life.  Thank goodness for the Detailed Dove Dies so I could make some angel wings!  And isn't the little red jingle bell just so super-cute?!?!  I used the Shimmery White cardstock for the wings and some Wink of Stella for the stamped bells.

Now, who doesn't love a quick and simple card?  Heartwarming Hugs DSP was cut into 1-1/2" x 4" strips and I used a Stitched Shape square for the focal point.  Add a strip of red satin ribbon instead of a bow and it's a great design for multiples and mail-ables....kind of like the Double Wonder cards from the spring.  Honestly, the next greeting was the one I had to Google back this summer when the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog came out, but now it maybe, perhaps be my favorite for this crazy year!  You're a mean one 2020...ooops, Mr. Grinch:)
