My Craft Spot Christmas and Winter Stamp Release Party Blog Hop

Welcome to the My Craft Spot Christmas and Winter Stamp Release Party Blog Hop!!  I've had so much fun sharing my projects with you this week - and even more fun seeing the AMAZING creations of the rest of the design team.  Today, we are finishing things off with a blog hop, showcasing more of the new My Craft Spot stamps (and ribbon and twine)!  There will be prizes at EACH stop along the way, all very generously donated by Kimberly at My Craft Spot - so be sure to leave a comment at each of the My Craft Spot Design Team blogs to increase your chances of winning!  How fun!

Also, the full stamp set reveal is ready for view and ALL five stamp sets are available for sale TODAY at My Craft Spot!  Be sure to check things out and place your order!  These stamps are so fun and there's such variety.  Plus, they are made of high quality photo polymer.
For my project, I created a fun Santa card.  As soon as I saw the Jingle All the Way stamp set, I knew exactly which cut I wanted to use... but didn't have the cartridge so ended up "needing" to order Jolly Holidays!  Fortunately, I got it for a great price on eBay and it arrived in time for me to make my card.  After cutting the Santa and sleigh from Jolly Holidays, I inked everything and embossed Santa's beard with the Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls folder.  I added not one, not two, but THREE coats of Glossy Accents to the sleigh.  I love the way it looks!  I also added some larger glitter to Santa's cuff and the pompom at the end of his hat.
The patterned paper is from a Recollections Christmas stack and I scored at 1/4 inch on each side and then did a bit of doodling.  I added some gorgeous Cranberry Crinkle Ribbon (from My Craft Spot) as well as two little bells that actually jingle!
I finished things off by stamping "Jingle All the Way", a stamp from the newly released Jingle All the Way stamp set from My Craft Spot.  The little snowflakes are from the new White Christmas set and I added tiny little green gems to the middle of each.

And now for the fun news for all of you!  One lucky person who leaves a comment here will win the new Jingle All the Way stamp set!  To see what others have made with this new set, see HERE.  All you need to do is leave a comment!  So easy!
Now, please continue on your way, hopping to each of the My Craft Spot Design Team blogs.  If you started at My Craft Spot, your next stop is a visit to Jayne of Jayne Designs.

Here is the blog hop order for your convenience:
Kate (*you are here!)
And back to My Craft Spot to order your new stamps!
