Pretty Cute Stamps October New Release Blog Hop!

Thanks so much for joining us for the October 2015 New Release Blog Hop, where we are all sharing projects featuring the new stamps this month that are now available in the Pretty Cute Stamps Store.

If you came from Jessica's blog, you are in the right place. If you just stumbled across this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit the Pretty Cute Stamps Blog

For my project for the hop, I've used the amazing Nativity 2 stamp set to create a beautiful Christmas card. This set is a wonderful, large set - full of beautiful images and sentiments! I absolutely love it! (P.S. See below for an equally amazing Nativity 1 stamp set!) Here's a look at this gorgeous set:

Nativity 2 

I started off sponging Distress Inks on a white cardstock background, using a straw colour for the bottom and adding blues to the top and blending them in the middle. I added some water droplets to the card for the night sky. I love being able to use the coordinating SVG diecuts to precut my images before stamping, but you could easily fussy cut them after! I popped up my star and added some gold Wink Of Stella to give it some shimmer. Some foam dots added some dimension to my second little lamb. How sweet are these?!!

I used Prismacolor Markers to colour in my images. They are just so sweet! I have so many ideas for them!!

I used white embossing powder over my dried Distress Ink background - make sure to hit it with a heat tool first to make sure your powder doesn't stick to the Distress Ink! and stamped this beautiful sentiment with Versamark Ink.

Inside, I used another lovely sentiment and then cut a circle with my Cricut to create a stencil. I sponged on similar colours of Distress Ink, blending the blue and straw colours in the center.
