Kathy Clement   Kathy has a Giveaway!

 Elizabeth Lincoln  Elizabeth has a Giveaway!

For our Giveaway, besides getting to pick 10 of our Printable Papers or Images 
the winner will also recieve our new Garden Style Digital Art Stamp Set Set.  It has cute art deco garden ladies and fun sayings but what makes it really special is the jumbo re-sizeable pieces like the 7"W dragonfly, the 6" aprons, 5"H umbrella, the 5.8"H boots or 4.7"H garden gloves!  They are large enough to make into cards or cute gift tags. Watch for some fun samples coming soon from our Design Team Ladies.

I wanted to tell you a little bit about our talented 2 New Design Team Members.  Both Kathy and Elizabeth have been long time fans of Crafty Secrets and we are excited to have them join the team.   

Here are a few samples from Kathy Clement's Blog I wanted to show you. She goes all out and often decorates matching envelopes for her cards and includes great tutorials.  You can get all the details on this cute card on Kathy's Blog and her envelope tutorial.

You can get the details here on this sweet birdy card

Here's a fun sewing collage card and envelope by Kathy

Elizabeth Lincoln is a member at Splitcoast and has a gallery she posts in there and is planning to have a blog in the Fall. She says she loves our stamp designs so much she's bought a printer and is determined to learn how to use digital stamps so she can play with some of our new designs. The detail and imaginative style she adds to her cards makes them really special. 
You can get the details on this pretty card Elizabeth created with our Sing For Joy set

I love how Elizabeth added the big daisy and the background she made for the cricket from our Bug's Life Stamp Set  and roadster from the Car Classics set (now digital).

Elizabeth card used a Bird from our Bird Notes set which is digital now and the pink paper is from the Pastel Pad and now a Printable Paper.

Below you can see how re-sizing our digital images and papers is handy when you want to create different projects.  Did you see the 2 Digital Tutorials I did last week using Paint? One is on decoupage and the other is changing colors and adding text. 

 Okay, now it's your turn to add any sample you have created using a Crafty Secrets products. Everyone who enters receives a $6.00 gift card for our online store and 1 winners gets a $50.00 gift card.

I just love your vintage images, and I until now, I liked stamping them, BUT... your new "Garden Style" set is going to change all that. This addition is one of my favorite collections you have done. You really know how to make your vintage renderings perfect for crafting!

What a lovely idea are your download stamps. I have drawers and file folders full of your products, and now I have been gifted with a Photoshop Elements program! It doesn't get much better.

Kathy said...

Soo cute - I love them all!

loulou said...

I love to ink up my crafty secrets stamps, but I really like the flexibility of digi too. Maybe even more importantly digi doesn't need anywhere near the storage space. I don't think I can slip another piece of paper into the drawer in my craftroom
