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.

MarkerPOP! and Touch Twin HOP!!!

Welcome to the MarkerPOP! & Shinhan Touch Twin marker blog hop!

Our teams are joining today to bring you a fun filled hop featuring a variety of stamps carried at the MarkerPOP! store that have been colored with Touch Twin markers which are available at MarkerPOP!.

The hop starts today and will be open until December 19th. Enter by commenting on all the blogs in the hop (see blog list below my project).

MarkerPOP! will be giving away TWO prizes so make sure you comment on every stop along the hop!



About Shinhan Touch Twin markers:

Designed for artists, Touch Twin markers feature an advanced alcohol-based ink formula that ensures rich color saturation and coverage, with silky ink flow. Touch Twin Brush markers feature two nibs (Brush & Chisel) to achieve a wide range of strokes, from fine lines to wide color fills. The delivery of ink flow can be perfectly controlled to allow precision drawing. The ergonomically designed rectangular body is roll resists rolling on work surfaces and provides a perfect grip that avoids smudges and smears. A specially designed safety cap stacks neatly and prevents damage to the nibs. The Touch Twin marker contains an alcohol-based ink that doesn’t dissolve printed ink toner, allowing for odorless, vividly colored artwork on printed materials.

Here is my project using Piper (The Greeting Farm).
