Are you getting into the festive spirit? ...... maybe this will help

Hello again ......

And welcome to the STAMPlorations Christmas Typografia Blog Hop - Part 2.  Get ready for more fabulous festive inspiration from the STAMPlorations girls.

It's round two of the Blog Hop ...... the first instalment was back in September (check here if you missed it)

Check out all 25 Typografia Christmas stamps which are now available in the STAMPlorations store and .... the great thing is they're all currently at a special price.  There's 5% off the rrp ..... and don't forget, if you use my special discount code when you checkout ...... STAMPGIRLLINDA .... you'll receive another 20% off! 

I've been playing with some of the new designs ..... and they're fab!  See what you think .....

A really quick and easy design using Peace, Love and Joy from the Typografia Christmas range

By adding a sparkly die cut star to the top ........

and a tub to the bottom ...... I've turned the sentiment into a Christmas tree

I used my MISTI to do the stamping, inking with different colours as I went along and repeating each colour until I was happy with the result ..... what did we do without our MISTIs?!

My second card is using Christmas in the Heart ..... along with a gorgeous STAMPlorations poinsettia which unfortunately I think is now retired

The sentiment was stamped and embossed in white onto a piece of black cardstock .....

Then I added the poinsettia around the edges heat embossing in gold and masking the flower as I went along .....

A few dots of glitter glue add some festive sparkle .......

And I finished off by adding a few dots of liquid pearls here and there, and a couple of sequins.

Last but not least ..... a pretty little gift tag using tis the Season from the Typografia range along with the CUTplorations Manila Tags Nesting dies

We all need gift tags at Christmas .......

Again I used my MISTI to do the multi coloured stamping and heat embossed it with clear powder .... I then used one of the smaller dies to cut this out

I gave the white card a quick spritz with some Perfect Pearls .......

and added a touch of sparkle with some glitter glue and a gold leafing pen around the edges ......

I then layered the small tag onto a larger one cut from a piece of cardstock from my stash.

Are you thinking about Christmas yet?  Carry on hopping and you just might be.   There's a prize up for grabs along the way ..... one of you who leaves a comment on the Blog Hop will receive their choice of 3 Christmas Typografia stamps
The winner will be randomly chosen from all the comments left on the STAMP Blog and all the participating designers blogs, and will be announced on October 10th.  Happy Hopping!

Thanks for popping by ........ I hope you're enjoying your day.
I still have one more post for you today ...... told you it was a busy one!

See you again later ......
