Something special to share - and a giveaway

Paper Smooches will release their newest stamp set called Joyful Greetings on September 15th and I am here today to help promote this sweet set! Ordinarily a new "Kismet" stamp set is released on the 15th, but this month they wanted to offer a Christmas theme sentiment set to compliment the sets that will release on October 1st. You will find the new stamp set HERE.

I LOVE sentiments...so of course I was super excited to add this new set to my growing collection!

I used Happy Camper and Autumn Groves along with the new Joyful Greetings.


The trees are stamped with Versamark and shaded very lightly with a white pencil --  then I added some glitter.  The sentiment is embossed. I cut the ground by hand and added glitter to the edge. The deer is colored with Copic markers. The finishing touches -- a red glitter nose and some hand stitching.



On this next card I used Santa Paws along with the new Joyful Greetings.


I stamped the "ho" sentiment repeatedly on the card base with red ink. The little Santa hat is colored with Copic markers and I added some glitter.  LOVE my glitter!



Well...I couldn't stop creating....so I have ANOTHER card to share :)  This one I used Swanky Snowdudes along with the new Joyful Greetings.



I did all my coloring with Copic markers.


I added some shading to the sentiment with a light blue Copic marker.  LOTS of glitter on this card!


MAN did I have fun playing with this new sentiment set!  Now I'm totally in the mood to continue stamping Winter and Christmas goodies. A HUGE THANK YOU to my friend Kim for letting me share this AWESOME new set with everyone. ((((hugs))))
 

Would you like to win this new set? Of COURSE you would!  I have one Joyful Greetings stamp set to give away to one lucky person! You have until midnight on September 16th to leave a comment. I will post the winner here on Monday, September 17th.
