The Stamps of Life and Clearsnap Holiday Hop!

The Stamps of Life and Clearsnap are having a holiday 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 all 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.

Here is my project using the trees4Christmas set.

I created my sparkly background by spritzing with Banana & Guava Premium Dye Ink Clearsnap Sprays! by Stephanie Barnard  on white cardstock.

I embossed with a embossing folder from Sizzix and added Sprinkles! (from Clearsnap) Chunky Glitter to the raised circles.This is my favorite glitter. It doesn’t get all staticy (is that a word?) and stick to you like other glitters. For this project I used a thicker glue so it has a dimensional  effect, you can also use it for finer details with it by using a thinner adhesive.

I stamped the tree with Guava Premium Dye Ink and then added glitter to the swirls.

The hop list!
