SSS-Holiday Release Week Blog Hop

holiday-release-hop_1-01Hi there! Today I’m excited to be joining Simon Says Stamp along with several talented designers for a Holiday Release Week blog hop!
SSS-Christmas Town & Holiday Card KitMy first card features the fabulous new Christmas Town stamp set, which was part of the Advent release.
SSS-Christmas TownI just love architectural images, especially for the holidays! I used the Slopes & Hills dies to make a hilly little village scene. I blended some Maliblue ink on the hills and colored the images with Copics.
SSS-Christmas TownI used a couple of goodies from the Holiday Card kit to make this next card.
Limited Edition Simon Says Stamp Holiday Card Kit CHRISTMAS 2016This adorable little Retro Deer die is perfect! I cropped him off to the side of a small little ink blended panel. I stitched the small panels onto the card for something different and then added that gorgeous “joy” sticker by My Mind’s Eye that is also included in the kit.

Hi there! I’m back with Mama Elephant highlighting the adorable new Little Cat Agenda stamp set.Mama Elephant-Little Cat AgendaThese cats are so darn cute! I made a little parade of them on a hill cut from one of the Landscape Trio dies. I blended some Mama Elephant inks in Bubblegum & Lollipop onto the Hooray die cut and added a coordinating sentiment from Girlfriends.
