Layers of Color Release Party Blog Hop

EDIT: The giveaway is now over and the winner is announced HERE. Thank you.

We are so glad this day is finally here. Laura and I worked hard to put together the Layers of Color's Christmas Collection for this release and the LOC team is very excited to share it with you today.

It is an absolute delight for me to work with my dear friend Laura and combine our styles to create this new collection of LOC stamps. These special designs are created from our hearts to celebrate 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 is my card for today's hop. I used the Holly Angel cling art stamp and Sentimental Banners clear art stamp set, which coordinates with Spellbinders' Ribbon Banner dies! I love these dies so much, so I had to design stamps to go with them. It covers just about any sentiment I could think of that could fit in one of the 4 banner stamps in the set.
Merry Christmas Angel
Don't you just love this beautiful angel that Laura illustrated? I colored it with Copics. Leave me a comment on this post and I will draw a winner who will receive a sample. The winner will be announced tomorrow!

Before you enjoy viewing the entire Layers of Color's Christmas Collection, first enter the Grand Prize Drawing where you have the chance of winning all seven new release art stamps on the LOC blog! There is also another giveaway on the Layers of Color Art Stamps on Facebook as soon as they have 300 fans, so invite your friends, too! The winner will be announced on the Layers of Color blog and on Facebook  tomorrow, September 20th.

  1. Wow Nina, you and Laura have created some really beautiful stamps for the New Release. I love the tradition that shines through and the fact that many of the designs can be coloured (one of my favourite techniques) Your card is so full of surprises - everywhere I look there is another interesting detail to behold.
