Christmas Release Day 1 at STAMPlorations

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's Christmas stamps and dies release time over at STAMPlorations, welcome to my offering for Day 1! My teamies and I are showcasing this new layering set designed by Shirley, aka The Bee's Knees.

Here are my samples ...

Lights or baubles, this set works for both, it's up to your imagination. I used a bit of Are You Cerise Infusion Powder for the background in my first card, the lights were stamped using Cerise and Framboise Izink inks. Finished off with a couple of sequins this is a bright and cheerful non-traditional card.

My next one is a little more traditional, the background spritzed with yellow liquid watercolour and a little grunged around the edges, a little tinsel embossing and bright lights to finish.

As usual with blog hop release celebrations we ask you to visit and comment on all the blogs of the participating designers and, of course, the STAMPlorations Blog too.

One winner of a $25 gift certificate will be randomly drawn from all the comments left on the participating designers blogs and the STAMPlorations Blog. Commenting closes on October 5th.

All stamps, including the new release, and dies from the CHRISTMAS CUTplorations Dies section are on sale at 10% off until Monday 8th October, no coupon needed. You can still use my personal discount code STAMPGIRLMONIKA at checkout to get an added 20% off.

Here is one last look at today's cards ....

That's it from me for now. Pop over to the STAMPlorations Blog to join the fun.

Have a lovely day!
