Pleasant Pheasants - What's New at Stampin' Up! Blog Hop

I am happy that you are joining us for our hop. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrator from around the world who are Hoppin’ With Exciting Ideas to share with you. Today we will feature products from the 2018 Holiday Stampin’ Up! Catalog. I know you will find a lot of wonderful ideas shared today. There are 17 stops on this hop so sit back with your coffee and enjoy.  If you are following the order you have just come from Cynthia McQueen where she showed off Beautiful Baubles stamp set.  I choose to show off the Pleasant Pheasants stamp set.  I love this set as it is a great set for water coloring.
This is a great set for a man card, but works great for anything.    The card I made is based on Stampin' Up! Card in the 2018 Holiday Catalog.  The Card is an You Can Make It Card, located on page 44 of the Holiday Catalog.  I changed up the colors a little.

Just a reminder that the Items in the Holiday Catalog can not be purchased until September 5, so get your wish list ready.

Here is the card I did.
