January Blog Hop and Reveal!!!

Welcome!!! I'm so excited you are here today!

This month's color is WHITE (or Cream)! After you're done hopping around today, make sure you play along with this month's White challenge (click here for details) for a chance to win some awesome SP and Company prizes!

Join us for our Release Celebration that is happening today and tomorrow on the SP Forum HERE.  You can talk to all of the designers, discuss projects and chit chat with other stampers!

Don't forget that the random prize patrol is watching so leave a comment on every blog to be eligible for the prizes!!

Today I have three different projects for you, all using the newest stamp set, Large Polka Dots.  For my first card, I stamped the dots on vellum and heat embossed them.  So fun! I just love this look!!!

I stamped Lovely Labels on Echo Parks's Love Me Papers (I am seriously in love with these papers.  I can't stop using them).  I also heat embossed the sentiment from Artsy Heartsy on a banner I die cut.

Oh, and that beautiful flourish at the top and bottom? From Stitchery Doo!!! To keep the vellum adhered to the card without it really showing, I adhered behind the label and then stitched it down so the edges didn't curl up.  I love vellum, but it can be tricky hiding the adhesive!

Now, onto my next card using Large Polka Dots:

I heat embossed again, this time on plain white stock.  I've been waiting for a Polka Dot Background Stamp like this for a long time, so I was giddy when I saw SP was releasing one! This is just so versatile! I've been using it on so many projects!

I die cut the window using Spellbinders dies and stamped the heart and heart outline from Artsy Heartsy under it.  I adhered the embossed sheet with Stampin' Up Dimensionals after adding the fabric tape and Baker's Twine.

Now, for my last card.  This one is super CAS, but I really love it! It's not often I allow myself to be THIS simple and I'm so glad that I did.  I adore the results!

That Lippy stamp is just too great and the Large Polka Dots make this so graphic and clean! That sentiment is also from Artsy Heartsy.

Now, head on over to the SP and Company store before these stamps are gone!!!!

Make sure you check out the SP Blog to see what Samantha did with the new stamps! We also have the Stamp Team and the Challenge Team teaming up today to show you lots of amazing projects with the newest stamp sets!
