Winter Wonderland Blog Hop

Hello everyone! Welcome to the Webster’s Pages Winter Wonderland Blog Hop. We are SO excited to have you join us as we celebrate the holidays with the official launch of our brand new Webster’s Pages/Unity Stamps Holiday Stamp Collection!

If you are joining me from inspireME, I am so happy to see you here. If not, you might want to start here so as not to miss a single detail of all the fun we have in store for you.

To say that I was beyond thrilled when I heard about our new stamp release is a bit of an understatement. I began my paper-crafting venture years and years ago as a stamper, and to this day, I still love them. And the new Webster’s stamps hold a near and dear spot in my heart. You are going to love working with these. Made out of high quality, etched red rubber, these stamps are sure to become a must have for your growing Webster’s Pages product collection!

I used several images from the holiday sets, along with beautiful papers from the Sweet Season Collection, to make a festive card for design team member Jaz Lee.

I love the colors of the Sweet Season Collection, and used lots of layers of color here to add depth and detail to my design, just perfect for a fun Christmas flair.

A simple cream cardstock base lends a sense of calmness to the color palette, and works well with the lacy paper doily and neutral patterned paper. I love stamping directly on patterned paper as a fun alternative to plain cardstock, like I did here with the framed tree and sentiment. The little bit of pattern adds even more subtle detail to the overall design.

I absolutely love the classic elegance of this framed tree stamp from the Merry Christmas Home set, and used it as the main focal image in my design. I applied two colors of ink directly onto the image using small cat’s eye ink pads, specially designed for ideas like this. Added lots of icy sparkle with ultra-fine crystal clear glitter. I even added some subtle blue snowflakes around the tree using the same set. It’s easy to do by just inking the snowflake portion of the stamp using the small cat’s eye ink pads.

I created the sentiment by cutting out the Merry Christmas greeting from the Christmas Delivery stamp set. I added more glittered detailing and a sweet bow made from our Vintage Inspired Netting and an Olive Bloomer.

I hope you love the new stamps sets as much as I do! Are you interested in winning one? Simply leave me a comment telling me which new set is your favorite, and it could be yours. The winner will be announced Monday, Dec 13th at 6pm PST/9pm EST! at our LIVE CHAT and here on my blog on Tuesday. And don’t forget, each design team member along the hop is offering a free stamp set. That’s 10 chances to win!

Next stop along the hop is Jaz Lee! I can’t wait to see what she has done with the new stamps. I know it will be just amazing. Thanks so much for stopping by everyone.

Enjoy!
