November release blog hop- day #2

Hello, and welcome to day two of the November new release blog hop with Market Street Stamps! I’m excited to be showcasing these new sets today, especially because one of them is mine! If you missed yesterday’s hop, be sure to check that out by scrolling down or by checking out the entire hop over on the Market Street Stamps blog.

You should have come here from STEPHANIE’s blog.

We’ve got another day of inspiration for you and today we’re showcasing these sets:

Christmas Bells

Country Christmas

Friendly Penguin

All of the new release stamps can be found in the Market Place, and ALL of them are currently on sale at 15% off!

I’m sharing two cards today that I made using my new set, Christmas Bells.

For this first one, I decided to try my hand at some coloring with my Spectrum Noir markers. I don’t do a lot of coloring, but it was really fun. I enjoyed the shading and layering on the colors.

When I was all done I spritzed it with some silver metallic paint. It may be hard to see in the photos because it’s pretty subtle, but it’s there, and adds just a bit of shimmer to the finished card.

This is also a great, one layer, easy to mail card. I’m a big fan of saving myself some postage. especially over the holidays when I’m sending out so much more mail than usual.

I went monochromatic with my next card that features the cluster of bells in the stamp set.

That jingle bells patterned paper from Crate Paper’s new Sleigh Ride collection was just perfect to pair with this set! I stamped the bells onto some metallic silver card stock using my Stazon ink.

Some stitching, silver cord, white seam binding, and tiny pearls give this card a hint of shabbiness.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this latest release. I love it all, each and every stamp set, and I know they’ll make a great addition to my Christmas crafting supplies!

Thank you all so much for the positive feedback you’ve already given so far! It was so much fun having you all hop with us yesterday, and I know today will be just as much fun. Be sure to catch all the blogs participating in today’s hop and leave comments along the way for your chance to win one of the sets being showcased today!

Thank you all so much for stopping by and for your kind words!

Have a lovely day!

    Christmas Bells lead me to thinking about Christmas songs “with” bells and now I have a combination of Jingle Bells and Silver Bells running through my head. Your cards have certainly flamed my Christmas spirit. Gorgeous cards; beautiful stamps. Thank you for sharing and inspiring once again.

    Beautiful cards Brenda! Loving all the silver on the second one, but that first one took my breath away. LOVE how you colored it!

    Both cards are very special, most of all the silver jingle bells one. Generally I like the style of your projects, combining cute and non-cute objects, modern and vintage ones, neat and shabby things – adorable!
    best wishes, serafeena
