Hey there everyone!!! This is going to be a long blog post but definitely worth it. What's better than new stamps and a sale?
Welcome to Skipping Stones Design’s DT Blog Hop to celebrate the release of two new stamp sets, ""Friendly Fruit" and "Timeless Textures" (see pics below). If you just happened upon my blog today, you’ll want to go back to the beginning at Skipping Stones Design. You should have arrived from Chelsea's blog.
If there is a break in the hop, go back to Skipping Stones Design to see the master list. Just to let you know, I'm the last on the hop today but I hope you enjoyed seeing all the amazing eye candy from our DT and our Guest designers.
Now, you're probably thinking... my card doesn't look like it's used the new sets and you'd be right... Sometimes getting things from the US to Canada takes a little bit of time (it ranges from under a week to more than two weeks to get things) and my new sets are somewhere between South Dakota and BC. Maybe the Customs agents are stampers? What do you think? I bet they're having a stamp party with my new sets!!!
For my card, I've used today's sketch which you can find on the SSD blog. I wanted to play with one of my sets I have that had yet to see ink called Buns n Crunches. I thought about the fact that there is a chocolate chip cookie in the set and the sketch had a circle shape as the main part so why not make a chocolate chip cookie? I've used some of my Circle shaped Nestabilities and then used my Scallop Circle Punch to create the part of the cookie that looks like someone has taken a bite into it. All layers have been sponged with matching inks to the cardstock. I used some Cocoa colored half back pearls as my chocolate chips. This card was a fun one to make!! And almost looks good enough to eat right?
Aren't these new releases great? I can't wait for mine to arrive as I have ideas floating around in my head for cards to make.
Combined with the blog hop today, it's also Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday which means the Design Team is showcasing another great creation from Kim Kesti. We'd love for you to play along with the sketch. Just remember to use the keywords SSD035 if you are uploading to any online galleries or link your card at the Skipping Stones Blog. We'll be looking soon for Guest Designers and a DT calll soon will be going out so you never know....
Did I mention a sale? Why yes I did!!! Heather has PMS.... Hehehe... Actually she's having a PMS Sale! The more stamps you buy, the bigger the discount.
P.M.S.~ in this case~suffering from the NEED to Purchase More Stamps!
Here is how it works:
Buy 1 stamp set save 5%, Coupon code: PMS1
Buy 2 stamp sets & save 10%, Coupon code: PMS2
Buy 3 stamp sets & save 20% (total savings $8.70) Coupon code: PMS3
Buy 4 stamp sets & save 25% Coupon Code: PMS4 for a total savings of $14.49 ~that's like getting one FREE
Buy 5 stamp sets & save 30%, Coupon Code: PMS5 for a total savings of $22.10 ~that is like getting 1 FREE and another one half off!!!
What to do: Put the stamps into your shopping cart as normal. When you are checking out there will be a box where you can type in a coupon/discount code. This is where you type the letters PMS and the number of stamp sets you purchase. For example if you are buying three stamp sets type in PMS3 into the box.
*This sale will last until Monday August 2nd at midnight
On a personal note, this will be my last post as a member of the Skipping Stones Design "Stamp Tramps". I've loved being a part of this DT and will treasure the friendships I've made with the girls and the opportunities I've had to work alongside some of my stamping idols who have been Guest Sketch Artists and Guest Designers. I love the stamping community - there are so many of us and it's amazing how many friendships can be formed through the use of technology. To my fellow Stamp Tramps: I'll be gone from the DT but I'll be back to participate in blog hops in the future. It's been a blast with all of you!! I'm going to miss you all!! But don't worry... I'll stalk your blogs to see all of your amazing creations!!
