Occasions Catalog Swap Blog Hop w/ SSINKspiration

This past month, many of the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration designers participated in an Occasions Catalog Card Swap. Instead of keeping all of these beautiful card samples to ourselves, we wanted to share them with you, too! Today's blog hop will spotlight a handful of Stampin' Up's Occasions Catalog products as each of us who participated chose a different stamp set to showcase.

As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog...and be sure to pin it, too! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number 1 on the SSINK Occasions Catalog Blog Hop – Darla R. of Stampin with Darla and Sisters . If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn’t work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below. And, be sure to come visit us at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration where we 'inkspire' you 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year!

The stamp set I chose to use was...

Language of Love  #133077  $12.95

I LOVE this card! The woodgrain stamp set is one of my surprise hits in this catalog, goes with everything and the pennants are very fun.

That wood grain does look so real. This will be great for those masculine cards. Thanks for sharing.
