Sorry for the delay with this post (technical headaches). The good news is we’ve almost finished CD #2 and I’m so excited about how fantastic it turned out I’m celebrating and giving a draft to each of the 5 ladies who submitted envelope gift bags on our Facebook page – plus 3 more random.org winners will be picked this Wed from the comments left on this post! We are also having a great SALE on some discontinued Clear Art Stamp Sets! See details below
It was so hard picking a winner but we felt Sylvia Cink Hildman’s Halloween Treat bag (below) was so cute and we loved all the photos & details she posted on her blog. You can see the other cool submissions here on our Facebook page.
Rita Barakat - Altered Fairy and Birds & Blossoms Scraps
Cynthia Olheiser - Girlfriend Creative Scraps
Michelle Hodges - Birds & Blossoms Creative Scraps
Michele Sanders Ciola - Halloween Creative Scraps
Look at this adorable card that Beate Johns created using a technique called a ‘Suspension Card’ with our Winter Wishes Clear Art Stamp Set. You can see a step by step by step previous tutorial on Splitcoast she did using this same technique.
I love the colors Beate used and the sentiment she stamped from our Winter Wishes Stamp Set. She makes fantastic tutorials and videos!
Elizabeth (I love Rubber on Splitcoast) has also been creating some fabulous cards with our new Winter Wishes set like this pretty snowflake card. Look how she added Glossy Accents to the snowflake, sentiment and the snowball. I love how she designed it so you can untie the snowflake and use it as an ornament.
Here is another card Elizabeth created using the same Winter Wishes stamps and she added small black rhinestones for lumps of coal large flakes of glitter snow. She doesn’t have a blog but you can visit ‘I love rubber’ Splitcoast Gallery and check out some of her unique card creations.
I like the way DT Member Heidi Blankenship created her own paper by printing roses on our CD #1 layered over the sheet music. Then see the sentiment charms she made using our Mini Frames stamp set with sentiments from Grand Greetings.
Okay, here is the low down on our SALE! We are discontinuing 9 of our Clear Art Stamp Sets to make space. There are 3 large, 3 medium and 3 small sets. This is the first time have discontinued any stamp sets but with over 200 sets and all the other products we need more space. We will also discount the wholesale price for stores, so you can let your favorite retailer know.
The 3 large sets are $14.99 each, saving $10.00 and include Thanksgiving . This is an amazingly detailed set but we’ve had 3 sets in the last 2 months with an issue with the large top left stamp so I’m going to discontinue it. Please know if you ever have a problem with any set not stamping great – please contact us and we will replace it! Great quality is one of our trademarks!
I love the elegant style of this Cupcake Party Set but it bugs me that you have to stamp the cupcake wrapper twice to create a full cupcake wrapper. It’s on sale for $14.99 and it’s a large 6 x 8” set.
This is an older set and it’s never been a big seller. I think maybe people prefer to have ready to stamp frames but this is a versatile set and Frame It is on sale for $14.99
Rosy Wishes has never been a big seller yet it has some really pretty stamps. It’s on sale for $7.50.
There are several alphabet stamps sets in the industry and Adore Alphabet has never been a big seller but it’s a deal for $7.50 while supplies last.
Party Queen is a older medium size set and it’s cute and fun but I would like to have a more funky party queen set, so it is on sale for $7.50
Twinkle Stars hasn’t been a big seller so it’s on sale for $4.50 while supplies last
I love this design on Floral Vines but we had to reduce the artwork to fit on a small set making it harder to color. It’s on sale for $4.50
I love this little bashful pig but a few people said she or he looks like a weird naked pig – so Wonderful Pig is on sale for $4.50. If we gave her a little ruffle skirt would you like her more?
Lastly, I bought too many of these cute Apple and Pear Mini Notepads (like over 700) so I'm are putting them ON SALE for $1.50 – PLUS we will include a free Apple with every order we send out for the next month (unless you specify Pear on the memo section in our Shopatron Store). If you want to buy a 20 or more I can sell them for $1.00 each.
They each come with a paper clip (mixed clip colors) and a little mesh fruit bag and I think they look like a little piece of art on my telephone desk.
They look cute displayed in this little fruit box but come packed flat in a bag for easier shipping. Some of the wood stems may break off but you can easily fix it with a drop of glue.
Don’t forget to leave a comment here on this post to be entered to win a draft copy of our new CD #2, Creating With Vintage Illustrations. They just won’t have the fancy label or sample ideas. We will have the fancy packaged ‘real’ CD’s in about 2 weeks. I will show more sample pages in my next post as I ran out of room here.
Wishing you joy & creativity
