Mint Owl Studio September Release Hop *Giveaway Too*

Hello and Happy Hop Day!!! I love when it's time to reveal new stamps with a little fun, inspiration, and of course a giveaway so make sure you read down to the end of the post for more details on that! I have created a Holiday Card with a fun background using the soon to be released Christmas Quilt mask and the Cardinal Greetings Stamp set...



To create this card I started with a panel of patterned paper and went over the mask with a Versamark ink pad.  I then added clear embossing powder and heat set it.  I then went over the entire panel with a green and black distress inks.  Finally I used a damp cloth to wipe the ink off of the embossed areas to help the design pop.  The sentiment was then stamped and embossed with white embossing powder onto black card stock.  I popped this up with some foam adhesive onto a die cut vellum star and some gold thread.  A few star sequins and a glitter gold panel pulled it all together.

This release is so much fun and I just know you are going to love it too!  Make sure you stop by the Mint Owl Studio Blog for a look at the full release!  Now onto some giveaway details...

We're also giving away the entire new stamp release!  Want to know how to win?  All you have to do is comment on this blog and each of the blogs on the hop.  The winner will be randomly chosen from one of the blogs, so the more blogs you comment on, the better your chance is to win!  Good luck!
