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.


Before you enjoy viewing the entire Layers of Color Christmas Collection, first enter the Grand Prize Drawing where you have the chance of winning all seven new release art stamps!  To enter, simply "like" Layers of Color Art Stamps on Facebook and comment on this blog post.  It's that easy!  (You may want to bring your friends too because as soon as we reach 300 on our new Facebook page, we're having another drawing!)  The winner will be announced on Layers of Color blog and on Facebook tomorrow, September 20th.

AND, since you love fresh, new ideas and inspiration for your stamping projects, you'll want to visit our designer art galleries that have been recently updated with the talented Layers of Color design team's newest projects!  Now, hop on over to the rest of their blogs for more Layers of Color Christmas Collection creations and GIVEAWAYS!

    Layers of Color - Faith Art Friday -Promises of God Journal

    Welcome back, everyone!  

    I have the wonderful privilege of hosting the Layers of Color Faith Art Friday again today!  This time around I wanted to share the first page of my "Promises of God" journal!  The vision behind my journal is to create art around the promises of God that are meaningful to me.  I thought this verse would be a fitting one for page one.  :)

    I had an amazingly wonderful time creating this page! So much so that I might just frame it and put it up in my kitchen somewhere!  Lol!  We'll just have to wait and see though!


    For this lovely page I used Layers of Colors stamp sets "Fruitful Harvest" and "Honeysweet."  Fruitful harvest is just ripe with beautiful fruit images--it has always been one of my favorites.  Don't you love how it comes alive with some layers of color?

    You can stop on by over at the Layers of Color blog for some upclose detail shots of the page if you'd like!  

    And you're invited to a LOC RELEASE Party!  New LOC stamp sets coming soon!!!!
    Our party will start with a  BLOG HOP
    with lots of GIVEAWAYS, including
    the GRAND PRIZE Drawing to WIN
    the entire September New Release!

    Grab an Angelic Party Badge for you and your friends
    and invite them to the party and to

    If we reach 300 “likes” by September 20th
    Laura will have a special drawing on Layers of Color Art Stamps Facebook page
    that will automatically enter everyone who “likes”!
    We’ll see you…
    on Layers of Color Designer blogs and Facebook for sneak peeks!


    Blessings on you day,
    Janice!  :)
