Today is such a special day! Not only is it the first day of the series but I have invited some of my favourite Crafty YouTubers to help me create a video hop along with our friends at Simon Says Stamp! There are 8 videos to watch and you have until November 6th to leave a comment on each video to be entered into the draw for TEN different prizes! There are 6x $10 gift certificates to Simon Says Stamp  1 Misti Stamping Tool and 3x 10 pack of homemade cards by Justine (me!). 

I used FOUR intricate and elegant dies to create this set of five cards. The designs truly are spectacular and having that hint of blue on such vibrant white paper is a fantastic combination.

I used alcohol inks to create these backgrounds on glossy paper. They are super easy to use and I show you several ways to get a variety of looks by just adding some blending solution, blowing with a straw or simply twisting and turning the paper. The Holly Triptych die is also great for creating horizontal or vertical A2 cards!

Can you believe the card on the right was a big mistake? From accidentally gluing down the sentiment in the wrong area to getting ink smudges all over the paper, this mistake just needed to be cut down in order to become a great card! You can also see the Rejoice Die in action including the background die in the set.

T The Holiday Circle Sayings is a perfect stamp set to pair with any circular designs you may be wanting to make this holiday season! I love the intricacy of the wreath die, it's so stunning with all the differently shaped sprigs. 

This Snowburst Die is truly perfect for both horizontal and vertical cards! Don't forget to watch the video in order to see how I decorated the insides of these cards!

As much as a I love simple Merry Christmas sentiments, I also love thoughtful and unique ones as well. The Altenew set, Holiday Wishes, is perfect for adding sentiments to the front and insides of cards. There are a variety of different lengths and sizes!
