Welcome to the Crafter's Companion USA Christmas blog hop!
We are so excited to be giving away so many of Crafter's Companion's fabulous products, as well as sharing many Christmas project ideas. If you are coming from Ann's Blog, you are in the right place. If not, make sure you head over to Crafter’s Companion USA over here, where the blog hop starts.
The Christmas Inspiration
The inspiration I made for this blog hop is a Hand Painted Christmas Gift Bag and Candle. I used the Ivy Stamps from the Sheena Douglas Christmas Collection. Instead of painting it with Acrylic paints, I experimented using the new Spectrum Noir Markers. Don't you love the end result?? I love it! I enjoyed making this inspiration project. I am going to paint more candles to use as Christmas gifts. You should give it a try because these markers are amazing.
I used the Masking and Painting/Stamping on Candle techniques for my inspiration projects.

The Christmas Giveaway
We are giving away a prize on every blog, including the entire set of our new Spectrum Noir alcohol markers to one lucky winner who posts a comment on every blog. These markers are so new, that you will be receiving our first prototype of them. That's 72 markers!
Spectrum Noir pens are alcohol ink based which have been designed specifically for crafters, but these affordable markers are also great for beginners, students and hobby artists alike. Each pen is double-ended, with a broad chisel nib for large area fills and a fine bullet tip for detailed work. Spectrum Noir marker pens will soon be available in 168 colour shades including a colourless blender. The colours blend seamlessly and can be mixed or layered over each other. These fast drying, alcohol based markers are acid-free and non-toxic, and the coloured ends of the pen allow for easy colour identification. (Please note: The design of the pen, color names and numbers may be different than the pens that will be released in January.) The image colour has been reproduced as accurately as possible.
I hope you were inspired by my project today and try your hand at creating your own Christmas Gift Bags and Hand Painted Candles. I am giving away the Humphrey stamps of your choice to one lucky random commenter. Just comment before Sunday, December 11th at midnight for your chance to win. All the winners' names will be posted at Crafter's Companion USA News blog on Tueday December 13th. (Must be a U.S. resident to win).
PS. When leaving a comment, please mention what Humphrey Stamp you would like to have as a prize. Please don't forget to include your email too. You can check the stamps here.
