I had to let you know that you can win 2
of our medium stamp sets for FREE if your name gets choosen in the blog candy giveaway tomorrow over here at Scrapscene

The owner, Angie, did a review on our Clear Art Stamps and she used the Bird Lovers set to decorate a little doll house and it's so cute and original - you have to check it out! From the curtains, bedspread and ‘framed’ images to the pillows!

Angie is doing a draw tomorrow night for a free set of Seaside and a Sexy Numbers Stamp set and all you have to do to enter is post something you like about stamping over at Scrapscene! You can post what stamping technique you love, or what things you like to stamp, what you like about clear stamps, or you may have your own idea. The drawing is open until Wednesday, July 9th at midnight EST and she will annouce the winner on July 10th.

I also wanted to tell you that if you are interested in learning more about Copic Markers (the art markers that have become so darn popular) I found a great blog that is full of helpful tips and techniques! Marianne Walker is the product specialist for Copic Markers and she has started a tutorial blog called http://ilikemarkers.blogspot.com/that is filled with really helpful tips, step by step instructions and lots of photos! I just sent Marianne a bunch of our stamp sets and I’m itching to see what sets she picks first to play and color with!

So many of our stamps are perfect for coloring and several ladies on our design team own Copic Markers. Here are some stamped cards our design team has used Copic Markers with. You can see on these cards below (stamped with our Sweet Kids) how well the Pastel paper goes with the card Linda Duke colored, and how well the earthy papers go with the card Michelle Wooderson colored

Lisa Zappa colored this adorable fishing card titled 'Have a Whopper of a Birthday' and then she added Diamond Glaze over the water to make it look wet and a Gelly Roll Glitter pen to make the fish look shimmery. The stamp set is our SM-16 Fishing Buds.

I really want to try these markers so I've started a little crash course over at Mariannes blog to learn some tips and the Copic booth is booth is right around the corner from our at CHA, so Lisa is going to be doing some Copic demos in our booth as well!

Marisa our guest designer for the month has been posting a new card every day with all her techniques and supplies on her blog and she has some amazing samples to share like this card she stamped with our Favorite Fellas set!

Pammy Jo over at Splitcoast has posted a NEW challange this week HERE to use black with our products and you can see the gallery HERE and this is the COOL card she made!

Since I discovered Crafty Secrets Clear Stamps, I stamp on almost everything!!! I love vintage stuff and now I have found the possibilities to make my own vintage stuff!!! The detailed stamping is so stunning and I just want... all of them, really:(
I like to make my own bookmarks with it and I even use them on my lay-outs and altered objects... I am even thinking about stamping a border with them in my little girl's new bedroom...
