Inpiring Ideas, Samples and News!

Hi Everyone,

Our design team has been busy designing all sorts of fabulous samples! Design team leader Vicki Chrisman created this very cute layout using our Fishing Buds Clear Art Stamps set for a challenge by Taylored Expressions. You can get more details
HERE on Vicki's blog.

Look at this super fun kitchen wall hanging Vicki made using an image from our Domestic Goddess Scraps. She also made a really cute Halloween Bingo card you can see and get details on both HERE on Vicki’s blog. I love the way she used her Stickles and Diamond Glaze!

Vicki also framed a bunch of our vintage images in some sweet little gold frames like this one using an image from our Homespun Fairy Scraps. I’ve seen some really nice little gold frames like these at second hand stores and dollar stores. If they are an ugly color, you can paint them gold or cream and add a bit of antiquing with inks or chalks. You can see a bunch more pretty framed images HERE

Look at this adorable card that DT member Anna Wight created with our new Mouse Party Clear Art Stamps set! You can get all the details and see the inside HERE on Anna’s blog. You also need to check our the amazing photos Anna takes from her life on the farm!

I also adore DT member Pam Hooten’s ‘Cheesecake card’ she designed with the Mouse Party set. Check out how she paper pierced the little mousse outfit and masked the cheese to layer her cake HERE on Pam’s blog.

Look at this beautiful card DT member Heidi Blankenship designed using our Seaside Clear Art Stamp set with a bunch of Spellbinder’s Dies! This little girl image off the set is one of my favorites and Heidi rocked it on this card! You can see more details and get the list of all the dies, inks and Copic Markers she used to create it HERE on Heidi's blog.

DT member Linda Duke also loves our Seaside stamp set and she made this very pretty card as well using the same little girl but different Spellbinder Dies. I love her soft colors and the way she added glitter to make the water sparkle in the ‘sun’! You can get all her details and see more HERE on Linda’s blog

DT member Vivian Peters has also been busy creating all sorts of fabulous samples like this super cute card she made using an image from our Cooking Cotton Scraps with the cookie cutter stamps from our Sweet Stuff Clear Art Stamp set. The REALLY SAD NEWS is that our Cooking Cotton Scraps have SOLD OUT and I’m still waiting to see if we can get more printed. Boo hoo!
You have to check out all the other great cards HERE on Vivian's blog that she has created including her super fun 'off to Paris on a vacuum' card she designed with our Girl Time Cotton Scraps (still in stock)!

Marisa Groson has also been a busy posting all sorts of new inspiring samples on her blog! I adore the 3 little paper doll cards she created in different outfits. You can see the other little doll cards if you scroll farther along Marisa's blog HERE as well as see her other wonderful cards like this one she made using images from our Calendar Creative Scraps and get more details Just close your eyes when you see the totally cute card Marisa created using an image from our Cooking Cotton Scraps as it just sold out. On the other hand there are probably several stores that may have it still in stock
Here is the card using some of the Calendar Creative Scraps

I love this mini album that DT member Melissa Phillips designed and the way she used our little girl laying on the grass (from our Calendar Creative Scraps). That image is from a book I own from the late 1800’s and it just shows you, some thing will never change. I think everyone can remember lying on a grassy hill enjoying the sunshine as a child. In fact it looks like a wonderful idea at any age! You can see the rest of this pretty little album and HERE on Melissa’s blog.

I also wanted to tell you that DT member Michelle van Etten will be teaching make-n-takes and demonstrating using our Clear Art Stamps and Heartwarming Vintage Collection of images with Glimmer Mist at the Stampfest Show at the convention center this weekend (June 27 & 28) in Kissemee, Florida! Michelle will be working in Scraporium’s booth at the show and if you can make it, stop by and play! Denise from Scraporium, located in Lutz, FL just received a huge order from us.

Wishing you all lots of joy & creativity!

Sandy Redburn
