Rosh Hashanah – Stampin’ Up Demo’s Jewish New Year Blog Hop



Hello and welcome my friends to a very special blog hop.   If you are traveling in the usual direction you’ve arrived from Yapha’s blog.  Yapha is a very special and creative lady and one I’m blessed to call a friend.  Her creations fill many of my Pinterest folders and especially when it comes to special Jewish holidays she’s the one I turn to first for a creative jolt to the mojo.

Four years ago several of us got together to put on the first ever (as far as we knew anyway) Stampin’ Up Hanukkah Blog Hop.  A hop that was spread over several weeks and that tired us out to the extent that it’s taken us four years to attempt another!  {grin}

Being now older and wiser and with busier lives we came together with a number of other friends some Jewish and some not but who love and appreciate those traditions, to create a quick and easy series of Jewish Holiday themed hops.  Today is our first for this year!!

Today we are celebrating Rosh Hashanah – The Jewish New Year holiday.  Wondering what exactly that is?  You can learn more about it here.

With Rosh Hashanah a mere 7 days away (Oct. 2-4) we want to inspire you in your preparations of  heart and home and perhaps to create a card or home decor item of your own.

As is usual with most blog hops you can follow the hop in either direction using the arrows provided or use the list of hoppers at the bottom of the post to check in with any stops you might have missed.   Enjoy!

Sweet Blessings

Sweet-Blessings-interior- Rosh Hashanah Hop 2016- Jean Fitch



Stamps:  Basket of Wishes (inside sentiment), Bear Hugs (honey pot), Christmas Pines (Blessing sentiment), Shooting Star (hive), Sprinkles of Life (basket)

Inks: Delightful Dijon, Black Stazon, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Black Stampin’ Write Marker

Paper:  Crushed Curry, Very Vanilla Cardstocks

Punches: Tree Builder (apples)

Tools & Adhesives:  Big Shot, Pretty Paisleys Embossing Folder, Blender Pen, Dimensionals, SNAIL, Tombow Liquid Multipurpose Glue.


Do you ever make a card that just makes you feel good.  Something soft and meaningful with perhaps a touch of country style?   The end result of this project did that for me.   When I started I had a completely different design in mind.  Then I saw the new Pretty Paisleys embossing folder and it took me in a totally different direction.    Being a card for Rosh Hashanah I was pretty sure I wanted to use honey and apples in some form and reflect on blessings for the New Year for those I love as well as myself.

Whether you are Jewish or not…celebrating this holiday or not…I think you’ll find this design works for many occasions and the blessings you would wish for another to whom you would send this card.

May your life be sweeter and filled with a new purpose and a renewed relationship with He who made us in the New Year.

Shana Tovah!

Added Note: We had a bit of a hiccup with a couple of the blogs and their platforms so really…this isn’t the end.  Please scroll down to the link list and check out Liz and Debby’s blog posts for the hop now that the links are working.

That’s the end of the hop ladies and gentlemen.   Please feel free to circle back through for a closer look and to leave some comments.   If you have an questions please feel free to leave them in the comments or send an email to the project blogger.  We’re always happy to share our love of stamping.   May your New Year be sweet and your desk full of inspired stamping.
