Just Add Color Blog hop and Giveaway



Hi there crafty friends! Today I'm part of a blog hop showcasing some beautiful new stamps from Spellbinders designer, Stephanie Low.  You probably arrived here from the fabulous Virginia Lu's blog. I'll include the entire list down below, in case you are starting here, and also read on for the giveaway.

The name of the collection is called Just Add Color, and you can see them all here - Just Add Color






I played with two stamp sets for this release.  I made quite a few different designs, but I'm

 showing just a few here today.  I'll have more in the coming days on my social media accounts. The name of the collection is called Just Add Color...and that is exactly what I did.  I love coloring with my Copics, and these images are absolutely perfect for that!



For this card, I stamped a row of Daisies from Loves Me, Loves Me Not stamp set across the bottom of the card panel and colored them with Copics.  I added some extra interest with a white gel pen. I trimmed down the panel and added a simple greeting to the bottom.  I finished with some dew drop embellishments for added interest.

I just loved the floral arrangement on the Mandala Blossoms stamp set, so I stamped it twice, to make sort of a wreath effect. I colored them and then used the Hemstitch rectangle die set (a must have!)  to cut it out, and pop it up. 


For my greeting I used my Spellbinders Hot Glimmer Foil machine, and the dies/foil plates from the February Hot Foil Glimmer of the month kit


On my last card, I stamped the Mandala Blossoms flowers in the corner of a card panel, and colored it with Copics. I used a ruler to draw a line on the back at an angle, and then trimmed out the corner and made a visually interesting angled card.

GIVEAWAY: To celebrate this release, we are giving away a $50 gift certificate to 3 lucky blog readers – selected from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop. Giveaway closes on Sunday, February 24th 11:59 pm EDT. Winners will be announced in our blog hop post the following Monday. Winner is responsible for shipping cost, duties and taxes.
