CHA - New Vintage Postcard Kits & New Stamp Set!

I want to announce our Vintage Postcard Kits and a new stamp set called Thanksgiving!

Today I'm going to show you two of the Postcard Kits for Baby Girl and Story Time. Tomorrow I will show you the Halloween and Christmas Kits! I'm so excited about these and the other kits we will be introducing at the 2009 CHA show in Florida July 28-3oth.

Each of the Vintage Postcard Kits will include: a custom Clear Art Stamp Set, 6 large postcard size images, 12 smaller images embellishments and 18 ivory chipboard pieces. You will be able to create 6 separate Postcards or you can turn them into garlands, albums, ornaments and keepsakes!
This is the Baby Girl Kit shown below and a Baby Boy Kit will be coming soon.

Here is a beautiful baby album that DT member Heidi Blankenship created using the chipboard with two of the postcard size images, some of the smaller chipboard accent images and some of our Baby Girl Stickers.
You can see the little stork stamp included in the kit which Heidi used here on the left page below. There are 8 separate stamps on the mini stamp set included. Each kit will also includes 6 large postcard size images along with 6 little chipboard stamps, 3 stars and 3 hearts and 12 images for embellishing your postcards.
Heidi added a chipboard star below which she mounted on cardstock she cut and embossed with the largest Spellbinders Nestibilities Labels 4 Die - which matches our postcards! You can see how the largest fits on the right side and there are several smaller ones in the set that would make great embellishments.

Heidi used our Heartwarming Vintage Baby Girl Stickers on the left page below and one of the postcard images on the right page. I love the way she used her Copic airbrush to ink around the edges of her pages. She will be posting more pages from this adorable album on here blog shortly and I will add links tomorrow.

This is the kit packaging for our Story Time Vintage Postcard Kit. It includes a Clear Art Stamp set with 10 separate stamps and the same number of images and chipboard pieces as the other kits. Don't you think these would look so cute in a child's room or to create as a birthday card keepsake? I think 3 hung together vertically or strung together as a garland would look adorable! If you mail your postcards you can decorate the envelope as well.

Look at this cute postcard that DT member Vicki Chrisman created using one of the six large images from the kit. Vicki used wire to hang her postcard and I love the way she added beads, twill and one of the chipboard stars. You can't see the star clearly on this photo but she glued a little clown image on it. The ivory chipboard is perfect for stamping directly on the back of your postcard or you can stamp on light colored paper and glue it on. It's also soft enough that a tracing wheel (look in your sewing basket) works fantastic for adding a faux stitched edge as Vicki did here. She also punched a hole in the bottom to add a bead and a bell but you could hang one of the chipboard hearts or stars included, or any number of embellishments you have such as charms, crystals, a tassel and so on.

This is one of our new Clear Art Stamps called SL 22 Thanksgiving. This is a large set with 22 separate stamps! They can be used in multiple creative ways to dress up Fall and Thanksgiving table decor such as menus and placecards, or decorate invitations, cards and scrapbook pages!

Look at this pretty card that DT member Michele Kovack designed using one of the largest stamps (almost 2 x 4"). I love the way she used her Copic Markers to color the stamp and then stamped the sentiment across the bottom. The felt flower, button, jute finish it off perfectly.

DT member Lisa Zappa created this fun card featuring both turkey stamps and the dressed turkey steals the show with his colorful attire! I love the stitching and the way Lisa used the printed papers from our Earthy Paper Pad with the red cardstock.

DT member Marisa Grosson created this adorable card using the little girl and boy from the stamp set pulling on the big wishbone. Marisa also used paper from our Earthy Paper Pad and I love the way she layered her card using the Spellbinders Nestibilities Labels 4 Die set.

Our Vintage Postcard Kits and this Thanksgiving Clear Art Stamp set will be released at the CHA Show. We will be in Booth 1513 and offering fabulous Make-n-Takes during the Wholesale TradeShow and the retail Super Show!
Please come back tomorrow to check out the Halloween and Christmas Vintage Postcard Kits and some of the fabulous samples our design team has created!
I will also be annoucing a great Vintage Postcard Giveaway!

ok, I'm trying this for the second time, apparently I'm not much of a blogger. The kits are wonderful, they just bring so many childhood memories and feelings back. I'm trying to get a couple of my friends interested in "being creative" and I know they will all like the postcard kits, they are so versatile. Thanks for sharing hints, tips and techniques in your newsletters, I learn something new every time I read them
