{Paper Smooches Video} Lots of Love + Season's Givings Blog Hop + Giveaways!!!


Happy New Year and welcome to the Season's Givings Blog Hop! My beautiful friend Latisha Yoast started this annual hop two years ago to celebrate the spirit of giving over the holidays and I'm thrilled to be part of it again this year. Every single person on the list below has a giveaway! All you need to do is visit their blogs and leave a comment. Grab your favourite beverage, a snack or two, and start hopping!


My card features the following stamp sets and dies from Paper Smooches - Lots of Love, Incognito, Glasses, Tiny Hearts and Stitched. This post is long and so is the blog hop so I won't bore you with written details on how I made the card. If you're interested, the video will show you how this card came together!



I created a face around the main sentiment and embellished it with glasses and hearts. The eyes were built up with four different stamps and I applied glossy accents to the lips.


I grounded everything using die cut stitching. The patterned papers are from Amy Tangerine's Stitched 6x6 paper pad and the glitter vellum is from Cosmo Cricket's Vellumptuous collection.


Here's the full list of hop participants:

 Emily Leiphart  

  Giveaway Details  

For my giveaway, you have until 11:59 p.m. EST on Monday, January 5th to leave a comment on this blog post. You can also subscribe to my YouTube channel by clicking on the red button on my sidebar and leave a comment on this YouTube video for two additional chances to win the following prize package. I will announce the winner via Random.org sometime on Tuesday, January 6th. Please remember to check back here to see if you are the lucky winner.
