Layers of Color January Release Blog Hop!

Hello everyone! -
Welcome to the Layers of Color new release blog hop event! If you came from Jennie's blog, you are in the right place. Otherwise go ahead and start at the beginning because you won’t want to miss a thing - like a sale and chances to win free stamp sets along with tons of inspiration and projects from each of the designers!
Today, we are excited today to be revealing  two new 
Warbler and Floweret cling art stamps 
as well as our very first clear stamp sentiment sets 
Sent with Love; The Love Chapter; Happy Wishes

I've share some cards over the past week with each of the stamp sets listed above and have a couple more to share today showing all of them again with the exception of  the warbler (check yesterday's post for a sample.)  So, let's get on with my projects I've prepared for today's hop!


One of my favorite images from this release is this collage rectangle stamp image found in The Love Chapter clear stamp set.  I love the size, the fonts, and how great it looks stamped on patterned paper too!  It's so fun!

Card Details
Stamps: The Love Chapter; Butterfly Collector; Happy Wishes; Floweret (LOC)
Ink: Memento; Distress Tea Dye; SU
Card stock: SU; Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934
Other: Sewing machine; Doily; Punch Bunch leaf punch; K&Co. brad; seam binding ribbon; Fancy tags nestability die; dauber; Quikutz embossing folder; Kaiser Crafts Pearls

and the inside view...


Since the new release hop's theme was LOVE/Valentine's Day - I had to use this image from The Love Chapter stamp set on my next card.  As you can see from both of my projects today, I was in a 'vintage' kind of a mood when I was designing, I believe...


It's a bit hard to see, but after I stamped the 'LOVE' sentiment on the embossed square, I went over some of the lines with a clear Spica glitter pen.  You can also see that I used a sentiment from the Sent with Love stamp set on the front of my card - that's the gorgeous set that I'm giving away on my blog post today!  I adore the sentiments and the fonts that Nina choose to add to the set and KNOW whoever is the lucky winner will love it too!

Gorgeous cards, Jess! Wonderful designs inside and out, as always! I love all the new stamp sets but if I had to pick just one favorite, I think it is Nina's The Love Chapter!

Grace said...

Oh Jessica... these are gorgeous, inside and out! I love the vintage feel and the collage effect on the first one... love the doily and stitching! Oh it's so hard to pick a favorite set but I love Sent With Love because it's so versatile!!! I love the size of the font! This is a wonderful release!

Melody (lacyquilter) said...

Gorgeous. I like the floweret best.

MariLynn said...

Beautiful cards. I love all of the new sets. They are all amazing. My favorite, if I had to choose, would by Nina's Love Chapter set. I love how you used that set on your first card. The red butterfly collector butterflys are the perfect embellishments.

Eli said...

Very beautiful!

Marija said...

Wonderful cards, like perfect retro-meets-vintage combinations :) And I like the purple Floweret+LOVE on the beige background...

My favourite item is definitely Floweret, but I'd like to have Sent with love, so nice and useful...

Miesje said...

This is wonderful! I love layout and the colors - so Jessica - you have a wonderful style.

Cindy Lou said...

Your cards are absolutely beautiful! To choose which stamp set I like the best is very hard, it would be between the floweret and the french script background stamp. But I really like all the others as well. It's not nice to make me choose ;) Thanks for sharing!

Audrey said...

Such beautidul work!! Your cards are a true inspiration!! I have just been so inspired and the card withthe butterflies absolutely took my breath away!

Valonda L. said...

Amazing cards!!! Perfect attention to detail. I love how you designed the inside of the cards too, that is good inspiration for me, as I tend to ignore the inside and leave it blank. Then I feel like I have to write a novel on the inside to fill it up. :) I love all of the new stamps, but I have to say, the Sent with Love set is my very favorite.

Gwen said...

Love your cards!! And I have to pick the Love Chapter as my fav...so gorgeous!

Kristine said...

you did SUCH a BEAUTIFUL job on these!! I especially adore your first vintagey card... and I also love on the inside of your 2nd card how you put the floral border right there--perfect!! =) Lovely stamps, great hop!

MaxineD said...

These cards are beautiful, Jessica, but my favourite is the first one.
If I had to choose a set, it would be the Love Chapter, but they are all marvelous!!
Blessings
Maxine
