I wanted to share a wonderful challenge going on over at Kathy Racoosin's blog The Daily Marker. It is really more of an event if you see all that she has going on over there.
Kathy is hosting a 30 Day Coloring Challenge which started June 1st but you can jump in at anytime! The idea is to color everyday even if it's only for 5 minutes a day. Kathy will be posting daily on her blog to inspire you. There will be videos, cards & giveaways for 30 days. You will even see Kathy coloring some favorite Purple Onion Designs stamps during the month along with giveaways! It will be a fun month and is a great way to get a jumpstart on having a card stash ready for when you need one.
Today is the day! Stacey Yacula's new stamp collection Sweet Occasions is now available on the website. The collection consists of 25 adorable images and a coordinating sentiment set with 20 different sentiments. Sweet Occasions consists of stamps that can be used for almost any holiday, celebration or special occasion.
For a limited time you can purchase the entire Sweet Occasions collection for $100.00. This is a 30% discount off the regular prices. This offer is only available until Sunday, June 7, 2015.
As promised I have more cards using the Sweet Occasions stamps to share with you.
I love this first card from Sandy. It is perfect to celebrate Memorial Day today in the U.S. Bursting with Pride was designed with a blank flag to fill in with a country's specific flag, a sentiment or anything else you dream up. It makes for a great patriotic card. Just take a look...
I hope you enjoyed seeing all the great cards made with this adorable new collection. Please remember to take a peek at the Clearance section of the website. There are still some great deals to be had.
I mentioned the other day to check back on Friday for some exciting news. I am sure most of you could figure out what that meant. I am thrilled to announce a new collection of stamps from Stacey Yacula! The new collection will cover almost every holiday, special occasion and celebration throughout the year. The collection consists of 25 images and a sentiment set with 20 different sentiments.
The newest collection Sweet Occasions will be available to purchase this Monday 5/25. In the meantime, how about a chance to win the entire collection?
Both Stacey & I will be giving away the entire collection to one of our blog readers. You will also find smaller giveaways on some of the design team's blogs. The giveaways will run from today through midnight Sunday 5/24 (EST). Winners will be announced shortly afterwards.
Here is what you need to do in order to win this amazing collection of stamps from my blog. Simply take a look at the peeks below. Then leave a comment letting me know which stamp is your favorite along with 3 different types of cards or projects you can see making with that stamp. You can pair the stamp up with other stamps from this or an older collection for your creations. I am sure I will see some great and creative ideas. One winner will be chosen at random.
I wanted to share a few cards with you from Nadia Acker. I thought she did such a great job creating these cards. The card with Charlotte, Ruby & Bobby is my favorite. I love the coloring, design, background and texture of the card.
Let's see what favorite cards I have yet to share...
I love the color combo of this card from Therese. The black really adds some elegance. It is a clean and simple card but quite striking if I do say so. She was really able to capture the glossy finish of the flowers in her photo too. So pretty!
I overlooked sharing this card from Nancy at Easter and boy was I bummed. I absolutely love everything about this card! It is such a great design for any occasion. The mix of stamps is perfect and then that diecut cloud! You could even use the cloud from the Home Sweet Home Set in addition to the sun if you didn't have a diecut. Needless to say that patterned paper is perfect with the Blossoming Perch stamp.
Helen's card also used a mix of stamps but from 3 different stamp designers! I love how well the stamps can work together even though they are different styles. I always consider these my special surprise cards. Once again, great color combo playing off of the patterned paper.
How about this gorgeous card from Kelly! She used the Damask Background stamp that is currently on sale. It is one of the few in the clearance section that isn't getting discountinued. I just had a few too many at the moment. Love the colors on this as well. Beautiful!
