Hey Blog Friends,
I wanted to share some close ups of my new stamp sets and was trying to decide which one to show you. I picked this set "JCS0112 Material Girl" as it seemed appropriate for where I'm headed this weekend. I'm going up to Puyallup, Washington for the "Sew Expo" show. It's a rare occurrence that I get to go to a show and not be there to exhibit...but just for the fun of it. In fact this is the only show I can say that about, lol. It's a huge show (400 vendors) and it takes up the whole Western Washington State Fairgrounds. I'm excited to go soak up all the wonderful sewing/quilting/needlecraft goodness that the show has to offer.
With that in mind, now you know where the inspiration came from for this set of stamps:
The set shown above is JCS0112 Material Girl and it retails for $24.95. This set is a larger set of red rubber cling mounted stamps.
Some of the images are also available as a smaller set of Clear Polymer Stamps, Item #POL17, Create:
The Polymer set retails for $11.95. (The images shown above are reduced in size. To view the flyer showing the images at full size click HERE to go to the blog post that explains how to download the flyer.
Here are some of the samples that Tonya made with the stamps:
Here's another card:
I love the colors on these new papers. Here are swatches of the papers used on this set:
And here's a couple more cards:
The little gift bag below was made using my pattern template #PSX02 Tall Purse Pattern, which retails for $2.99. Here's the purse:
The purse makes an adorable way to present a special someone with a little gift or baked goods.
Here's another one of my new Acrylic Shadowbox Frames featuring this set of stamped images:
This frame is #ACR16 Tristan Acrylic Frame Large and it retails for $7.99. The frame comes with a chipboard backing, 3 "shadowbox" chipboard layers, 4 frame clips and an acrylic shape for the front of the frame. We embellished this one with our Acrylic Gem beads. The Big Bite Cropadile can punch through the acrylic if you want more holes for hanging the frame, or for hanging the jewels from the bottom of the frame. Tonya punched each layer separately for the jewel hanging from the bottom of the frame. I loooove these frames, we're having a ton of fun with them!
I'm working on a set of sewing patterns (in my spare time which hasn't been much lately!), and I'm wondering how many of my blog friends also sew? If you leave me a comment on THIS post and tell me if you sew or not and if so, what you like to sew.... I'll enter your name in a drawing to WIN THIS SET OF STAMPS! Post your comments by Wednesday, March 3 to enter. I will draw a name on Thursday, March 4. The winner will have until Sunday March 7 to claim their prize by emailing me their address.
I hope you have a great weekend and that signs of Spring are starting to materialize in your part of the country. We had a really warm week this past week and many of the buds are already starting to pop here.
