A SWEET Christmas Card & a Gift Card GIVEAWAY!

Hello friends!
First of all, I want to share this link over Splitcoaststampers site.
Under product Focus Mini MISTI...you can find this card set photo of mine.

Cascade Flower Trio
(SQUEAL!!)

OK, back to stamping business... I am popping in with this new stamp set from the STAMPtember new release and have a little GIVEAWAY (see end of this post).
s

What's so great about this stamp set is that the images are just the prefect size. For someone who loves coloring but also lack in confidence, this set is VERY manageable!
Enjoy the magic of Christmas

I took out my Spectrum Aqua markers and applied with water. I love that the Spectrum Aqua Markers come with two kinds of brush tips. The fine tips are perfect for coloring the small and detailed area.
Have you seen the stinky cute Monthly Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp?
s 
The stamp set in this kit "Nutty Over You"  is simply adorable.
s 
You can SUBSCRIBE to the no obligation kits and receive them monthly for $ 24.95, or purchase them each month for $29.95 (while supplies last).
I don't have this kit yet and hope it arrives soon.

Love the floral cards while the other is cute. Just won a SSS gift voucher with which I intend getting myself some basic tools. How do I shop from here?

Elaine Thompson said...

I can't wait to check my mail every morning to see your latest creation! Love them all! Can't remember all the things I have purchased, but I just ordered 5 Nuvo Crystal drops, Merry Christmas stamp, and your favorite sequins. Thank you for venturing into making videos! I have watched them all.

What a sweet Christmas card...the sentiment allows it to be used for an adult or child...I love that. As for using your product links...I know I have but for the life of me, I can't recall what I've purchased.

pcm said...

i have definitely added things to my wishlist from your linkies but i don't know if that counts! most recently yesterday's bamboo rose set from altenew!

mandalj said...

Cute card and lovely colouring! I haven't used your links yet as the cost of postage to Australia makes it too high for me - don't have much of a craft budget unfortunately. This Christmas Toys set is very tempting.

Jess said...

Beautiful sweet cards. I really enjoy getting daily email from you.

Patt H. said...

Love the gorgeous cards! I have clicked on lots of products from your site & am saving up for a big order. I will certainly go through this site when I can get most of my wish list at once. Seems like something is always out of stock when I want to order.

Liz Gessner McAllister said...

I love that new YOU set. It seems so versatile

Lisa said...

Those little toys are adorable, cute card Virginia!

Barb Ghig said...

Such a darling card, Virginia! I love how you arranged and colored all the sweet images, and your outline is so pretty!

I use your link all the time...most recently to buy a beautiful Altenew stamp set and a SSS Christmas die. I plan to order some of the new Stamptember goodies before the end of the month...this has been an amazing release!

Thanks so much for the link to SCS :)

Kathleen said...

This set was the grabber for me from the beginning. I love it. Heck I am a serious SSS buyer because I love it all. I buy through links all the time. It is the blog that gets me excited and links are fastest route to product

Karen B. said...

Aww what a sweet card! I have not placed an order with SSS since before my crafty break but I am tempted to use some of your links for the stamptember releases!

Valerie Doyle said...

Love your cards! I have never shopped through your link but may consider doing so in the future. I generally go straight to the company website and forget that I could help someone out by going through their link.

Melissa L. said...

Hey, Virginia! Lovely cards. I think that I have followed your links to two Penny Black Stamps - Butterfly Charmer and Terraced Lane. I purchased them from SSS and I am pretty sure that I first saw them used by you here on your blog.

jennifer delauter said...

Hi Virginia!!! I first saw your posts on StampNation. But I really started following you after the Misti giveaway. You and your website is so helpful and informative! I love your posts about how to stretch your dies,stamps, etc. Your cards are awesome-ly fantastic!!! I have and am learning so much about how to use my Misti more, look at my stamps and dies in new and creative ways, and watercolor more. I plan to buy the stamp set by Altenew called Brush Art Florals, no later than the beginning of December.

sdonn said...

Virginia, I LOVE your work. I love your videos, love everything that I have seen that you post. I just started learning watercolor. I found you while searching around on my quest to learn, and so happy that I stumbled upon one of your Youtube videos, and I have been following you everywhere since.
I purchased one of your cards on ETSY for my daughters birthday in August. It is beautiful and my daughter loved it. Thank-you for the chance to win and thank you for sharing all of your work.

Mel said...

Love that card. Just lovely. I want this kit so bad.

Dana said...

Super adorable card and set!! I'm planning on getting a set or two at the end of the month. What I get will depend on what is still available then! Can only afford shipping once!!

WeiLin Hu said...

Virginia,
I love this adorable card you made.
Thanks for offering a great opportunity to win a big gift card.
There were many stamp sets from SSS I wanted out of stock last month.
I wish they will be back in stock very soon and I could win this big gift card, LOL...

Jona Moughty said...

Such a cute card! I love everything that SSS comes out with. Thks for the chance to win
