Believe in the Season Blog Hop!


Welcome to my blog for the Simon Says Stamp Believe in the Season blog hop! Do you love what you've seen so far?? I love hops for all the inspiration! This release is a stunner!!

I've created a card using unconventional colors... I seem to be stuck in a very pastel mood, I'm thinking if I avoid fall colors then cold winter weather won't come. Ha! One can only wish. 
I've white embossed a Color Me tree and used Distress inks for my paint. 


This next Circle Doodle background stamp is a winner... so versatile and great for any occasion! I white embossed it onto vellum and colored the backside with Copic markers. This technique would also be great with gold or silver embossing for a more dramatic effect. 


I hope you've found some inspiration in my creations. Below I have a list of all the stops for the hop.


GIVEAWAY TIME!!

We're trying something a little different this time. I get to choose a winner for a Simon Says Stamp $25 gift card from my blog comments and or social media posts. Make sure to comment below or on my social media platforms for a chance to win. I'll be using the hashtag #sssbelieve for projects I've created from this release. I'll be picking a winner on Friday, October 28th. Good luck everyone!!

    

Your next and final stop on the hop is to the talented Heather Hoffman

Thanks for stopping by today, enjoy your weekend!!
