BLOG HOP!!! The {Stamps} of Life and Clearsnap


The {Stamps} of Life and Clearsnap are having a blog hop featuring The Stamps of Life stamps and Clearsnap inks and other fun products.

Be sure you comment on all the stops along the hop because prizes will be randomly chosen among the comments! The Stamps of Life will be giving away a prize to 3 lucky people – one stamp set (of the winner’s choice) per winner.

Clearsnap will be giving away an assortment of Stephanie Barnard Colorbox Premium Dye inks. Enter to win using the widget on the Clearsnap blog and by leaving a comment on each blog in the hop {list below project}.

Now that you have the details, here’s my project…

christmas tree card - stephanie barnard,colorbox,clearsnap,sprinkles chunky glitter,dye ink,premium dye ink,christmas papercraft,stamped card,tami sanders - card (682x1024)

This quick and easy card coordinates with the mini garland project I posted on the Clearsnap Blog – you should have seen it if you began the Hop at the beginning. If you are jumping in at the middle, or just came to visit my blog, please check the list below this project to start the Hop at the start – the Clearsnap Blog.

So if you make the garland, you’ll already have most of what you need out to make this card, so why not make BOTH!

The yellow background was made using Stephanie Barnard Sprays! in Banana. The images were stamped using Stepahnie Barnard Premium Dye Inks: Spearmint for the trees, Strawberry for Love, Guava for Peace and Blueberry for Joy. The outline stars were stamped in Chocolate. All of the glitter – Sprinkles! Chunky Glitter – was applied using Glue Gloss. A little bakers twine bow finishes it off. If you want to make and mail these, you might want to do them flat instead of using 3D Dots to adhere the tree and circles. That little added dimension can sometimes double the cost of postage!
