TE Holiday Hoopla Blog Hop

Taylored Expressions is hosting a Holiday Hoopla today and I'm excited to be a part of it. You should have arrived here from Wanda's blog.  If you didn't (or if you get lost along the way) you can head back to the beginning at Taylor's blog for the full list of participants. There are 22 designers showcasing Christmas/Winter/Holiday stamps sets from TE with samples that include all sorts of projects from cards to gifts and beyond!  We want to inspire you to get your holiday crafting and card making into high gear!  Be sure to stick with me all the way to the end of the post to get a coupon code for 25% off holiday stamp sets at Taylored Expressions! 

The set I'm showcasing is Moka Angel along with the wonderful Banner Holidays.  Moka Angel is quickly becoming a favorite for me, because not only am I using her for Christmas cards I have been using her for Breast Cancer Awareness cards.  Her versatility is amazing!  I'm loving the Banner Holidays because I can use it with any of my banner dies. . .how awesome is that?!

Here is the group of items I made with these great sets:

It seems like a lot, but it was all so easy!  Most of my supplies came from the Holiday Wonder Project Pantry Kit, making it even easier.  I stamped my sweet Moka Angel out on buttercream cardstock 3 times, and then colored her with my Copics.  I cut her out and set her aside.  Using the buttercream, I stamped my banner 3 times from Banner Day 2, and then stamped my sentiment from Banner Holidays onto each banner.  Then using my Banner Day 2 Die, I cut out all of my banners.  I also used the super versatile Frame it Up 1 Die.

 Here is a closer look at the bag and tag:
