Stamps and Smiles Fall/Winter Sneak Peeks - Day 3

Hello and thanks for stopping by!! Today is our third day of sneak peeks for Stamps and Smiles. We would like to thank all those that are stopping by and playing along with us during our release week.

Don’t forget to mark your calendar for our release party/Blog Hop this Friday night, October 9th from 8 pm - 9:30 pm CST. If you follow us during the hop, one lucky winner will win the entire stamp release.

We have a fun game today along with another fun sketch challenge. The game is for the third stamp being sampled called ‘Tis the Season to be Jolly. This set measures 4 x 8. It has 16 images and 6 sentiments.

How would you like to win this set and have it before the release? Find Jolly on one of the Design Team blogs and leave your name in Mr. Linky over at Stamps and Smiles with your answer. The winner will be announced tomorrow, October 7th.

On my first sample, I started with a 5 x 5 piece cardstock for the base of my card. Each layer was a 1/4 of an inch small. At first I was going to add some stitching but then decided to leave the lip so I could add some chunky glitter by Martha Stewart. Since the winter paper was still on my table from yesterdays samples, I used it for the background. To fill in the extra room, I added, ribbon, swirls and the tag.

I created my second sample at the last minute. I clicked onto Splitcoast last night and saw that the Sketch Challenge "SC249" was posted and it seem to fit what I had in mind. It worked so I went for it! The background was embossed and I exchanged one of the layers for ribbon. After gluing everything all together, I decided to add the glitter and WOW did it make the whole card pop!

Before I go, I would like to announce the winner for the SAS holiday goodie bag. Congratulations to Karen Wilson. Please email me so I can get your goodies out to you.
