Layers of Color Christmas Collection Blog Hop!

Welcome everyone to our Layers of Color New Release Party and Blog Hop!!!


Today we're revealing our new Christmas Collection designed by Laura Kirste Campbell and Nina Brackett!

These special designs were created from the artist's hearts in celebration of Christ's birth.  In our new Christmas Collection we are offering Spellbinders die coordinating stamps, images for Christmas cards, quick 'n easy gift tags, and timeless card verses.  There are lovely classic designs that are wonderful beyond the Christmas season too!  

Here are a couple of cards I made showcasing some of these beautiful stamps:
This card uses the new "Vintage Postcard" cling art stamp as the main focal point, and the new "Sentimental Banners" clear art stamp set for the Merry Christmas greeting.  I simply stamped the postcard image on white card stock then inked around the edges in "Memento Desert Sand" to give it that aged look.

Now onto a card showcasing the new "Holly Angel" cling art stamp. I will be drawing a name from all my commenters from today's hop and will be giving this stamp away for FREE!  So make sure you post a comment for your chance to win!
Isn't she just lovely?  The verse came from the new "Christmas Verses" clear art stamp set that I think you are going to really love!  Also, the decorative bar came from the new "Christmas Blessings" clear art stamp set.   That lovely cross is from an LOC classic, "Gothic Crosses" clear art stamp set.  :)

 I colored her in Christmas red and green in this card but my favorite is when she is in the all classic white with shinning lights like here below:
"Sentiment Banners" and "Christmas Verses" clear art stamp sets were used to make the banner.

Janice, these were simply gorgeous creations. I love all the wonderful details. I like how you made the postcard the focal point on the first card. I liked seeing the angel with the green wings. I never would have thought to color them green. I absolutely love the one with the pearls.

Hi, Janice! What an exciting adventure to move to Portugal! I have never even been overseas so it's hard for me to imagine moving that far away from home but it sounds really exciting. Your cards are just beautiful and the new stamps are fabulous... right up my alley, as I always make very traditional Christmas cards. Thanks for sharing your wonderful talent and good luck with the move.

Now my favorite... the white angel...she absolutely heavenly!
