STAMP TEXT: SL 19 Fairyland is a large set with 22 separate stamps. The words Birthday, Best, and Wishes are die cut separately for more options, as well as the little stars and flourish. The sweet fairy on the branch is 3.5” across. The words ‘Dream’, ‘Imagine’, ‘To Fairyland’ and ‘Fairy’ fit inside the little sign. Check out the cute little dressed bug and snail. The fairy with her arms up can sit on the bird, the mushroom, small sign or nest. The 2 pieces Lily of the Valley and flower can be used to build frames and borders. We jumped up and down with how detailed and pretty this set stamps!

Check out the hair on this little fairy Lisa Zappa stamped and the meadow grass she created. You can get the details HERE on Lisa's blog. She used just a piece of the Lily of the Valley stamp as corner accents.

I love this sweet mini layout DT member Michele Kovack designed of her daugter Courtney using the Lily of the Valley and flower stamp from the Fairyland set. Michele has some other great projects including a wonderful little watering can she decorated HERE on her blog.

DT member Anna Wight, aka Sweet Miss Daisy, designed this wonderful card using our new Home Sweet Home set. I love the colors, the embossing, ribbon, okay - the whole card! You can see what supplies she used and a close up HERE on her blog. and she also has a Crafty secrets store here. We released this new popular set already and you can see the set HERE. STAMP TEXT: SM 08 Bouquets of Joy is a small set that I think will be very popular with those who love to color and it also looks great stamped tone on tone. I actually had Cindy, our graphic designer, piece together 4 different vintage girls, so she would have a sweet 'joyful' face, cute dress, good arms and even a pair of Mary Jane shoes! She added all sorts of flowers to create a magnificent bouquet. I am in love with this lettering! The capital letters are from an old 1900 book I own. There was no Y, so Cindy created one. If you look at our Clear Art Stamp logo you will see our CAS is from the same antique book.
The talented Vivian Peters made this fabulous card using our new SM 08 Bouquets of Joy set. The butterfly and paper are from our Earthy Paper Pad. You can see Vivian's supply list and a pretty thank you card she created with the same stamp set HERE on Viv's blog. I adore the way she colored the dress on that card as well.

STAMP TEXT: SS 09 Little Dancer has 16 separate stamps and perfect for creating cards and cute keepsakes for little ballerinas, dancers, skaters and gymnasts. The little girl has a crown. a star wand to hold and a tutu to wear. You can stamp the little blades under her shoes so she can skate, or add the bow to turn them into ballet slippers. Add some stars, swirls and the quote and you can create something special for your little star!
Look at how cute this card is that Michele (aka chelmom) made using our Little Dancer Stamp set! It's adorable but not too difficult to duplicate. I love the little tulle skirt she created. You can get all the details HERE on her blog.
STAMP TEXT: SM 23 Lucky Wishes is a medium set and it as 23 separate stamps! The fortune teller is so kooky he’s cute. The words at the top; ‘Your Fortune says:’, ‘Have a great’, ‘Future’ and ‘Birthday’ are die cut separately. The crystal ball is 2” x 2.5” and ‘Make a Wish’ and the stars come out so you can create snow globes or add fun images and words. The dice, lucky charms and star can be used to create pattern paper. The bingo card is almost 1.5” x 2”. The ticket is empty so you can stamp lots of different wishes to create separate tickets or a strip on any color paper. This is a versatile set and it will fun to see what people put inside the crystal ball!

* LUCKY WISHES WILL BE AVAILABLE SHORTLYbut I had to show you this set as some of our DT members got the proofs and designed some fab samples! I got new plates made as we lost a line across the date on the ticket, so Cindy added it back in. It's worth it to be picky. Now it will look perfect.

Check out this fun card that Lisa Zappa created using our SM 23 Lucky Wishes set. Lisa, aka Shabby Chic Junk, of course adores vintage shabby stuff and she inspired me to purse the bingo card and empty ticket idea. I'm thrilled with the way it all worked in perfectly with this set! I love this card she designed and I think my fav part is the way she used the star stamp on our blue diamond paper (from our Pastel Paper pad) and transformed it into a classic retro design. You can see all the details and all the other fantastic cards Lisa has created HERE on Lisa's blog.

This birthday card that DT member Pam Hooten created cracks me up! Yep, it's that fortune teller guy from Lucky Wishes. I adore the jewels she added to his turban and ring. Pam also used paper from our Radiant Paper Pad and the gold embossing and gold stars she did on the crystal ball looks so cool! You can see more details if you scroll down on Pam's blog HERE.

This is another card Pam just sent me that I had to add so you can see how she added the guy to the crystal ball this time and the way she popped one of the retro chicks from our SL 05 Coffee & Tea stamp set and added the 4 leaf clover stamp. The floral and black diamond papers are from our Radiant Paper Pad.

I also wanted to share these wonderful cards that DT member Vicki Chrisman designed using various images from our Journal Notes & Image Booklets and some of our Clear Art Stamps. They include a mix of adorable, classy and fun themes that would suit so many occasions. I will be posting info soon on a new image line we have coming soon called Heartwarming Vintage Scraps! Watch more more great themes for Easter, Family, Garden, okay I will stop and list them all in the next post!
Also, look at the beautiful clipboard Vicki made me for the CHA Show using paper from our Classic Paper Pad and a birdy from our Birds & Botanical Booklet!

You also have to check out the Splitcoaststamp Gallery to see the incredible cards people have been creating!

Lastly, I want to give you a link to DT member Heidi Blankenships blog so you can see the 3 projects she designed for the Spell Binders big Giveaway Contest! The illuminary she designed is fantastic and I'm dreaming of our Fairyland stamps done on one now. Check out the card she created using the 'priceless jewels stamp' from our Card Sentiment set. All the contest details are on her blog and the prises are great!

Come back and enter our New Stamp Giveaway this Tuesday, Jan 13th! I will be back to show you our new other sets, including Sweet Stuff, which we will be releasing this Tuesday We are all laying bets that it will become one of our all time top sellers. It has 32 separate stamps and every one is adorable!

Wishing you joy & creativity
