NOTE: Today’s Friday Focus video will be up later today. So sorry, guys! Obviously, I didn’t get the second video posted. Unfortunately, I wasn’t feeling well. Later in the day I took a nap (hoping to feel better) and the next thing I knew it was 2 am! Yikes! So I’ll have to post that Halloween card a bit later. Thanks for understanding! :)

Hi all! Overnight, the new Simon Says Stamp Holiday release hit the online store! Yay! So many fun new things! Instead of a blog hop showing you all the new releases, how about a video hop? Yeah?

How does a video hop work? After you watch my video (below), just click on the image of the next video and you’ll be taken there automatically! Easy peasy! If you happen to be on a mobile device (cellphone or tablet), click on the link below the video here. :)

Anyhow, here’s are the cards I made for the video hop. The first one uses the Suspension Tree dies and Merry Trees stamp set

And my second card uses the same Merry Trees stamp set and the Ornament On a String stencil. I simply pressed Barn Door Distress Ink onto the cardstock with a blending tool over the stencil. It’s an intricate stencil so I had to adhere it briefly to the cardstock while I inked it up. :)

And there’s even more! Check out the full release HERE.
