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!!

Love the Christmas tree with the snowflakes! We see snow about once every 3-4 years here and you have to look quick because it normally won't last 24 hours. About 3 years ago it started snowing while the kids were in school and the district closed the schools early so the kids would have a chance to play in it before it melted!

Love the colours, love the trees!
