Taylored Expressions Holiday Hoopla Blog Hop!!!

Taylored Expressions is hosting a Holiday Hoopla today and I'm excited to be a part of it. You should have arrived here from Taylor's blog!!!  
Which is also the beginning of the Holday Hooplay Hop!!! Be sure to go to

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

The sets I'm showcasing today is the "Banner Holidays" Stamp Set and 
the Banner Day 1 Die... along with Moka Angel... 
I love the Banner Stamp Sets SO much!!! 
It is such a fancy way to add your sentiments and give your card/project that extra 'something-something' to it :)  

Here's my trio of cards...
I stamped Angel and my Banner sentiments onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink... I did a bit of coloring on my Angels with Copic Markers...

Did some paper piecing :)

and added a touch of sparkle on their halos and wings :)
using my Spica Glitter Pen!

Here are all the stamp sets and dies that I used: 

While creating for this hop I decided to keep myself to using only a small amount of designer papers and cardstock; I knew that I was going to have to do something with my scraps and decided to keep going with another Christmas card using the Trim the Trees Die... a sentiment from the Banner Holiday Stamp Set, some Kraft Cardstock and the Medium Scallop Border Die too :) 

Are you getting in the mood to stamp?  

Be sure to check out Taylor 's 12 Days of A Handmade Christmas Video Series for lots of easy gift ideas. I especially love Day TWO of the series!!! 
I really do hope that I can create a fabulous calendar like Taylor's found HERE!!! 
I'm thinking of creating TWO calendar's, one for each of my boys! LOL! 
They have SO much going on, it would be a fun way to document all their fun-ness on their own personalized calendars :)
