Peace in the Kitchen... I mean, Earth | Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

... "Peace on Earth"
... It's pretty ironic right now as I'd just take peace in my kitchen.  Wild Banshees are stomping around looking for containers and food to hold their new snail collection... Yup.  It's a sure sign of peace. 

Stampin' Up! is getting ready for Christmas and although I resisted at first, so am I.  In July Stampin' Up! Demonstrators were able to get their hands on the Carols of Christmas Bundle, which includes the Carols of Christmas Stamp Set and the Card Front Builder Thinlet Dies.  Now, customers can purchase this bundle at a discounted price of 10% off.  Next month customers will be able to see the brand new Holiday Catalogue so be sure to contact your demonstrator today to get in on the action.
Last month, I showed you some quick and easy ways to use the "Deck the Halls" sentiment included in the Carols of Christmas stamp set.  This month I created a couple projects using the "Peace on Earth" sentiment.  This stamp fits oh so perfectly in the largest stitched shape square.

Lately I have been using my ribbons and trims more and more.  I simply love creating a bustle and layering it under cards or attaching it to a corner on a project like you can see below.  The binder clips or library clips hold those in place super easily.  This is my version of the tassle and pom pom trend.

I couldn't help but do a emboss resist with this sentiment.  It seems so perfect for the night winter sky. The Softly Falling Embossing folder gives the "snowball" feeling to bring everything together.

As for now, I've got to get some quiet time.... and well... Peace in the Caines Kitchen. Tootles! 

Be sure to continue hopping as you can see inspiration from all twenty global Stampin' Up! Artisans. My friend, Dani from the United States is up next!
