Joy & Festive Christmas Release

Hello Crafty Friends!

STAMPlorations are releasing two new Christmas stamp sets and they are celebrating with a little blog hop over on their blog.

I was working with one of the sets called Joy. I really like the combination of solid and outline stamps that can be used either on their own or combined. Have a look at my cards ...

The first one was inspired by brightly coloured gingerbread. I randomly stamped the outline and small word stamps in bright colours to create my background.

For my next card, I pencil coloured the word Christmas using 3 shades of red.

For my last card, I simply arranged the outline word stamps and combined some of them with their solid counterpart.

Having one basic layout you can easily change the look by choosing different words to highlight.

Here are the two sets being released today ...

Two winners, one of a $15 gift code and one of a in-stock 4x6 Shery Russ Designs stamp set, will be randomly drawn from all the comments left on the STAMPlorations Blog and contributing designer's blogs. Commenting closes Tuesday 8th October and the winners will be announced in the September Winners post on 10th October.

More details and all the links can be found here on the STAMPlorations Blog.

That's it from me for today. Pop over to the STAMPlorations Blog to join the hop and check out the beautiful cards my teamies made.

Have a lovely weekend!
