Seasons Givings 2019

Welcome to Seasons Givings 2019 Blog Hop!  After the hustle and bustle, it’s always nice to relax, reflect and look at pretty inspiration! I’m glad you stopped by to help me ring in the New Year!

Seasons Givings is a way for artist in the papercraft community to spread new year cheer and gifts with all of you! You may have arrived via my dear friend and Splitcoast team member, Lydia Fiedler – she’s so awesome, but the hop starts HERE if you’d like to go back to the beginning!


I do have two fun giveaways after I share  a few fun cards that I finished this fall.

First up is this bright Fall Floral hello made with stamps and dies from Taylored Expressions. I love this Fall Florals set because the colors can be changed making most of the images work for any season, and the solid art makes for quick and easy stamping.

The Hello Script and Hello Script Backer die (cut from vellum!) are universal! Sure to cheer up anyone on your list! I’ve arranged and backed the florals and greetings on the Subway Tile embossed white layer. It’s like beautiful subway graffiti!

One more fall card from Taylored Expressions – this beauty was fun to color with Copic markers, and splattered with a bit of background texture. The image and sentiment are from Cutting Edge Fall. When I was grabbing links, I realized Taylor is having a Copic sale right now! Copic marker prices are increasing slightly, but Taylor’s are on sale through January 7th.

Copic colors: Y32/Y35/YR02/YR04/YR08/E33/E35/YG93/YG95

NOW HOW ABOUT A GIVE AWAY OR TWO!

I have two stamp/die collections. This first one features the cutest coffee set with dies from Sugar Pea designs, and the second stamp set is the adorable hot air balloon from Casual Fridays!

My second bundle includes a cute pumpkin spice stamp and die set from Pink & Main with this gorgeous floral – perfect for Copic Marker or watercolor from The Ton!

TO ENTER MY GIVEAWAY, please leave a comment and let me know what crafty thing you would like to learn or perfect in the new year! I’ll choose two random winners and post on Monday, January 7, 2019! 

Good luck and thanks for stopping by the Season’s Givings Blog hop – your next stop on the hop is my Splitcoaststampers team member and artist extraordinaire, Dina Kowal!

  233. I am hoping to start to master watetcoloring this year!! Beautiful cards!! I love this blog hop!!

  234. Hmmm, I’d like to be more efficient in my crafting. Like, if I’m making one card, taking the time to stamp two. I know it’ll save me more time in the long run, and it’ll help build up my stash so I actually have some cards in reserve when I need them. Cheers to a wonderful 2019!

  235. I sure hope to master watercoloring better. Thanks for your giveaway.

  236. Two beautiful cards!! Love the bright colors on the first, but the second is my favorite because I LOVE fall!! Gorgeous image colored to perfection! I would like to get better at ink blending–I can do it, but always end up with some sort of visible line or mark.

  237. Hi Lori! Your two cards on this page are super cute as well as all of the others I saw when I scrolled through your previous posts. LOVE the nativity!!! I love that it would fit in any home décor design whether it be rustic or contemporary.

    Let’s see, for the crafty thing, I always want to improve on my Copic coloring and watercoloring. Thank you for a chance at the lovely prizes!

  244. I had to get a new Cricut die-cut machine so I need to learn the computer software in order to use it. I am always up to learning new things.
