Seasons Givings Blog Hop with an FSJ Stamp of the Month Giveaway!

Happy New Year, my friends!! Welcome to the Seasons Givings blog hop. This annual blog hop is an extra special way for crafty bloggers to say THANK YOU to our readers and friends. Every single stop along the way will have a GIVEAWAY! How fun is that!?
I'm super excited because I also get to share the brand new FSJ Stamp of the Month Club. The January 2019 stamp set is called Key to My Heart and it is gorgeous! I have two cards to share with you today, featuring this beautiful new red rubber stamp set, and if you hang with me...you might even WIN this brand new stamp set!
For the first card I created, I sponged Cool Pool ink across the background panel, and then used the Heart Strip Die to just emboss the pattern into my cardstock. I stamped and die cut the key and wings, and rubbed on a little Gold PanPastel to add shading to the wings. 
(Products linked in this post are compensated affiliate links. When you shop through my links there is no additional cost to you.)
On the next card, I stamped and embossed the Vintage Notes Stamp in gold. Then I dabbed Gold ink across the Polka Dot Wall stencil over the top. This created a beautiful layered background. I didn't want it to distract from my main images though, so I overlayed a torn sheet of vellum on top.
I hope you like these two cards featuring Key to My Heart. And I hope you'll check out all the details about Fun Stampers Journey's monthly stamp of the month club. But I know, what you REALLY want is the GIVEAWAY!
One lucky winner will receive the Key to My Heart stamp set, as well as both of the handmade cards I shared today. (One for you, and one for a friend perhaps?!)
Here's HOW:
Comment on this post - I'd love to know if you're familiar with FSJ, or if you've ever been part of crafty monthly club. (Or tell me whatever you want to - but be sure to include your email address or some way for me to track you down if you win!) One random comment will be chosen on Monday January 7th. This giveaway is only opened to mailing addresses in the US. (I'm sorry, international friends!)
UPDATE: GIVEAWAY CLOSED, thanks for participating!!!!

Looking for more of ME!? Follow me on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest!
Alright my friends - you have a LOT of blog hopping to do, so get to it! Here's the whole list, so you can find your way! Thanks so much for stopping by!!!

Hi Laura I am a new follower because of this Hop, nice to meet you. I was not familiar with FSJ until the recent merge with Spellbinders and I love what I have seen so far. I fell in love with the Key to my Heart set as soon as I saw it and your cards with it are gorgeous! I started cardmaking/papercrafting last summer and have been looking at monthly clubs but have not joined any. This stamp set is definitely making me take a close look at the FSJ monthly club. I look forward to following your blog this year, here's to a fantastic, creative, beautiful 2019!!
