JOY OF SETS CHRISTMAS BLOG HOP


https://www.facebook.com/groups/1287196548026205/



I am the owner of the very popular Joy of Sets Facebook group - it started out as a group purely for Stampin Up sets both current and retired.  It has now grown into a group which celebrates all makes of stamp sets and is a great resource for ideas thanks to all the very generous members who share their creations.  If you are on Facebook and want to join in with us click on the link above or on the image.

This is our first Blog Hop and we thought what better idea than to use Christmas to get us all in the Festive Spirit.


In the spirit of the Joy of Sets I have used a retired Stampin Up Set and a Non Stampin up Image that often gets used by me and I think a lot of others around this time of the year. 

My SU set is Winter Post - I have had this set many years and have made lots of Christmas cards from it.  I do like Reindeer on cards too which helps but I love the nostalgic feel to this stamp set.  Here I've used it with Rubber Stampede's popular Santa Collage stamp.  Such a fabulous image of Santa - here simply inked and coloured in and a touch of sparkle on the snowflakes. 




Do pop along the hop and see what other goodies the FaceBook members have for your Christmas inspiration.  

I'd like to wish you and yours a very Blessed Yule and a Merry Christmas.

I'm checking out the hop because I follow Alejandro Gomez, but have already submitted a request to join your FB group. I have lots of retired stamps I can't bear to part with, so it's great to see people actively using them. I love the old-timey feel of your card. Sadly, I don't own that Santa stamp, so may have to go snoop at some stamping friends' houses. ;-)
