Hello stampers and happy Monday to you! Today I am going to show you a clean and simple card using the host set A Merry Hello. This card is just stamps, ink and paper. No embelllishments, no patterned paper, no ribbon. I really like how it turned out!
What is a Host Set?
A host stamp set is one that cannot be purchased on a regular order. It can only be purchased if you either place a $200 order or if you host a workshop where you and your friends make some free cards and then place orders together that total $200 or more. You then as a host receive 10% back in host dollars. With those host rewards you can use them for exclusive host sets like this one. The purpose of host sets is to entice you to host a workshop so you can get these cute sets. For December I am going to do a draw for this stamp set for those of you who place an online order. If you would like to see a host set from the annual catalog, check out this blog post.
A Merry Hello Host Set
Enough talking, here is the card and the tags that I made using this cute host set. This set is tucked away on page 81 of the holiday catalog.
I don’t have much ribbon at all here in Holland, but I was happy to see that the Playful Pets ribbon worked really well with my Christmas colours of real red and old olive. Here is the inside of my card.
A Merry Hello is a 20 piece photopolymer stamp set which means you can see through the stamps which makes it easy to layer them for some great detail. For example this stocking is actually a black outline image. The red top was added as a separate stamp. The heel and toe is a separate stamp and so is the little tree. This allows you to create fun coloured accents with no fuss. I also love the font of the saying. Those little things make me so happy it’s almost ridiculous. When that happens you know you are a stamping addict!
These cute tags were made using the North Pole Wonder dies which just happen to be 30% off today until January 4, 2021 or while supplies last. What struck me is the first tag. The holly leaves look like die cuts but it is actually a stamp. The red holly berries are also from a die from the North Pole Wonder set. I have used these dies for my weekly YouTube live videos for my virtual coffee and a card class and I really love them and have heard nothing but great things about them from my participants.
