Holiday Hoopla with Taylored Expressions!

 (Click HERE to find the TSG Blog Hop Challenge)

Hey everyone!   Taylored Expressions is hosting a Holiday Hoopla today and I'm excited to be a part of it!  You should have arrived here from Chupa's fabulous 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 Joy To The World and I love it because it's gorgeous, versatile and best of all, with every purchase through the end of the month, Taylor is donating $5 to the Angel Tree
I wanted to get started on my Christmas cards, so I thought I'd come up with an easy to duplicate way to get some cards done.  Easy to replicate cards need to be easy and quick and relatively flat so they aren't too expensive to mail.

I used the Holiday Wonder Project Pantry Kit and let the papers add depth to the cards.  I stamped the angels in Tuxedo Black, highlighted and colored with Copics.  
 Since these are going to be mailed for Christmas, I didn't want to add much weight.  A perfect solution is Stickles and Liquid Pearls.
Creating for this hop caused to me to go back and look at some of my previous creations and I wanted to share one of those with you today too.   

I made this fabulous card with the September Key Ingredients Kit and Hangin' Out - At the North Pole.
