STAMPlorations Typografia Christmas blog hop, join in to win!

Here in the UK autumn starts tomorrow and it certainly feels that way. The trees are starting to change colour and there is dampness in the air and on the ground in the mornings. It's also starting to get dark earlier.
It may even been time soon to light the fire.....
Now that is one thing I will be looking forward to as it also reminds me that in 96 days it will be Christmas Day! Wow!

Today I am delighted to be guest designing again for STAMPlorations stamps and the celebrating release of some really gorgeous new Christmas Typografia stamps. There are also lots of other new products released; You can see the whole range here

 You also have the chance to win as we are holding a blog hop to celebrate.
All the details can be found via this link

One lucky winner will win their choice of 3 of these new Typografia Christmas stamps just by visiting the main blog and the designers' blogs who are participating in the hop and leaving a comment.

I got the chance to work with 3 of these terrific stamps.
They make fab, really "on trend" Christmas cards. I will be putting some up for sale in Dotty's Tea House, they will fit in perfectly.

I decided to showcase mine in 3 different ways to show just how versatile they are.

For my first card I used
Silent night

 I made a Distress Oxide background using the wrinkle free technique and black card stock.
 Here is a close up of my Distress Oxide inky background.

I stamped and white embossed the silent night stamp. A simple bow finished this off.

 For my 2nd card I used peace, love and joy

I then got out some of my stash of Christmas papers and stamped and embossed in white onto a die cut rectangle. I added a holly brad and some gems as finishing touches.

My 3rd used
Build a snowman

 I blended some green Distress inks and  added splashes of water to bleach.

 and then added some green holly leaves by inking through the holly tag stencil. 

I got out my sewing machine and after stamping my sentiment I sewed randomly around it. I then tore around this. I also sewed a border around the inky card and distressed both card pieces before matting them up. I added some texture paste and glitter and finished off with a snowflake charm

These great stamps are up for sale on the web site with an opening offer of 5% off. However  I can also offer you a great discount code...just type STAMPGIRLJANE in at the checkout and get a whopping extra 20% off! Now that really is a great deal isn't it.

Remember that the more participating blogs you visit and comment on the more you increase you chances of winning.  Commenting for the prize closes on 25 September. The randomly selected winner will be announced on the main blog on 26 September. Here is a reminder of the hop link post with all the details. Good luck!
