Peek at 3 New Stamp Sets, Iron Ons, Pam's Giveaway, July 4th & More!

Hi Everyone,

 I'm so excited about the 3 new Clear Art Stamp Sets we just finished and sent off for proofs! All 3 have an animal theme and I only planned to do one set but they turned out so cute we couldn't stop. I will post more photos and details soon but would love to hear what you think.  Our 2 new Fairy Sets I showed HERE will be available this Tues.

These 3 new sets include a medium SM45 Cutie Cats and 2 lrg sets SL51 Top Dog and SL52 Animal Party. They should be in stock early July. Click on the image to see them larger.

Here's an outfit I embellished for my niece using iron-on paper and designs from CD 3, Creating with Vintage Typography.  I bought the pants and a bunch of T-shirts at Dollarama for $2.00 each!  Dollarama stores are across Canada with items for $1.00 to $2.00.  I'm going to go to a thrift store this weekend and look for some canvas and linen curtains to cut up and play with and will post details.

My niece Arissa calls my dad Papa so I added the sentiment 'Papa's Little Sweetheart' from CD 3 to the back of the shirt.  I love that you can change the sizes to suit your needs! 

To not waste your iron-on transfer paper, crop, copy and paste the images you want to use onto a 8.5 x 11" file and print it. Then simply cut out the words, flowers and images and iron them on separately.

DT leader Vicki created all of these graphics with the tree, sun, little girl, flowers, etc and then Cindy, our graphic designer added them as separate PNG Files on CD 3 and showed me how to do layers using Photoshop Elements to create this collage sample below. 

Now see how Julie Campbell used the same sun on her Art Journal?  I love the way Julie journals! I'm sorry I missed her Giveaway but you can enter Pam's below.  You can also see Julie's Doll Journal Post.

Here is a peek at Pam Hooten's 4th of July pages she created in her Art Journal using our American Beauty Set.  You can see the rest HERE on Pam's Blog - PLUS -  enter Pam's Giveaway to WIN your own American Beauty Clear Art Stamp Set!  She will draw a winner Mon, June 17/1

Sophie La Fontaine designed this fab card using our same American Beauty set and I love the way she created a background paper by stamping the images  in a soft brown.  To stamp the lady Sophie cut her apart but I wonder, could you also stamp her a couple of times in red and blue to cut out her clothes?  Also, check out Sophie's cool cars she did with our Car Classics Set HERE in her Splitcoast Gallery.

I love this card that Laurene stamped using our Bathing Beauties Stamp Set in the background with the sentiment, 2 ladies and seagull.  You can get the details and other supplies used Here on Laurene's Blog. The pretty lady in the front isn't our stamp.

 Here is another great card showing how Bev used our Material Girl Stamp Set to create a sewing room scene and the ATC frame she used from Art Studio to stamp a window. Look at the embossing she did and how the ribbon gives the illusion of sheer curtains. Details here
but Splitcoast is acting strange and keeps giving me errors so you will need to look for this sample and it comes up blank every time I click on it now. 

It's been crazy since we got home as we are also updating our 17 yr old kitchen so I've been posting all our old white appliances on Craigslist and trying to pick out new stuff on a tight budget is hard work! Here is my Scott and our friends son Scott who is doing the tile work.  I will do a post showing a bunch of before and after photos ASAP.

Lastly, we were away at the GASC and then on vacation so I never got a Fathers Day Printable organized but I did find our tie template from 2009 if you need a quick card or tie for Dad to wear. Are you doing anything special for Fathers Day?  We're having a pizza party here.
 Wishing you a fabulous weekend!
