Is it too late to make a New Year's resolution that I must blog more than once a month? I don't know where the time goes. I can't tell you how many days I say I have to do a blog post. Then before I know it, it's the following day and I am saying it all over again. Ugh. I should focus on sharing less projects each time but more frequent posts. Maybe that would work. I still have holiday cards that I hadn't shared with you. Since many of you are still buying the holiday images I am just going to share them now. I am sure plenty of the cards would be just as cute with a non-holiday sentiment.
Guess what today is? Today is my birthday. My 48th birthday. How about we celebrate with an impromptu sale? How does 48% off select stamps sound to celebrate the big day? You'll find them in the appropriately named "48 Birthday Sale" category.
I quickly poked around and found a handful of favorite cards using some of these sale stamps. A little inspiration is always a good thing.
Now that the sale is over I have a little time to share some other cards & projects from the design team. I am hoping that maybe I will have a chance to color a few tags this year myself. It never happens but I can be hopeful. I know my daughter wants to and I might just join in.
I am very lucky to have a super talented design team working with my stamps. I have some wonderful guest designers that join in during new releases and sales. There have also been a few customers sharing some great creations recently. I thought I would share a little from each today.
Let's start with a few of the guest designers joining us. Kathy Racoosin just finished these cards and sent them over. You must check out her blog The Daily Marker if you are not familiar with her work. I am sure she will be sharing how she created the textured look of the grass in the cards below.
I shared an adorable snow globe card using Cedar yesterday from Sandy Allnock. Sandy's blog is another worth checking out. Today's card uses Elwood which is one of the stamps included in the Cyber Monday sale. I know I was supposed to pull that down. It will probably dissapear after today. I have been busy pulling orders.
My next two guest designers don't get to blog too much. They aren't stamping that many cards these days (which is sad for us). However, they always want to get their hands on Stacey's stamps and create cards with them. Lucky us!
Marika Rahtu is a customer from Finland who has shared a bunch of her fabulous cards with me recently. You can read more about them on her blog here. I simply love everthing about this first card..the coloring, texture and glitter!
