My new Designer Type Photopolymer Stamp Set arrived recently and while I haven't had a chance to make a card with it I did want to ink it up and see what my first impressions were. I decided to take a few pictures to share with you so you can get an idea of how this new stamp set inks, stamps and so on. The top picture is of the stamp set after I took it out of it package. They do not come in the clear cases like our other stamp sets but rather in a plastic sleeve and are between to clear pieces of plastic. The black outline that you see in the picture above is on the plastic not the stamps themself. The next picture is of a stamped image. I placed the letters on the clear block with not spacing betweent them. So the stamped image is what you would get if you just line up the images. If you want the letters closer together you will need to stamp each letter individually.

Blooming with Kindness Stamp Set, Early Espresso Ink, Raspberry Ripple Ink and Old Olive Ink
One of the items that I had for sale at a recent vendor event were these coaster tiles. They are really easy to make and I love that you can personalize them with the first initial of the receipent. I didn't add initials as I like to be able to do them as they are purchased. The upper tile uses the Blooming with Kindness Stamp Set, while the two below use the Papillon Potpourri and the Betsy's Blossoms Stamp Sets. With our new Foam Ink Pads you can just stamp, add Clear Embossing Powder and heat. I have done these both with our Heat Tool or if I am doing several at once I can just pop them in the oven on a low heat and keep an eye on them while they emboss. If you would like to order one or if you want to learn how to make your own embossed tile just contact me and I will be happy to help you. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Tuesday. Tonya

Spring is definitely in the air and I love that Stampin'Up! is sharing the sneak peaks with us from the new catalog. The current catalog runs until the end of May so in June we get a new catalog filled with new goodies. I can't wait and with the new Spring Surprise Bundle I don't have to and neither do you.

Both for only $23.95 and if you all ready have the bunch you can order just the clear mount stamp set for $14.95. The set is available in English, Spanish and French and I have added a picture below. Order this week and you are almost half way to a free Sale-a-bration set. Please let me know if you have any questions or if you need help placing an order.

Hello and welcome to our Spring has Sprung Blog Hop. If you are joining me from my friend Rose's Blog I am happy to hopped on over and if you are just starting then please be sure and follow the link to the next stop. As you hop a long we would love it if you would leave us a comment and let us know that you were here. My first card is inspired by all the ombre items that I have seen on pinterest and in the stores. An Easter Egg just seemed the perfect choice for such a technique. I used Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red and Cherry Cobbler and sponged the Glossy Card Stock after I embossed the cross with White Embossing Powder. I tip I do want to share is that if you are finding that your embossed area is looking a little less white and more like your ink color you can take a Blender Pen and go over the embossed area and help clean it up. This helps keep your sponged area looking nice and colorful and your embossed area white.
Supplies: Cherry Cobbler Card Stock and Ink Pad, Pink Pirouette Card Stock and Ink Pad, Riding Hood Red Ink Pad, Basic Rhinestones, Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Ovals Collection Framelits Dies, Glossy White Card Stock, Crosses of Hope Stamp Set, Trust God Stamp Set, Scallop Trim Corner, Scallop Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, and 5/8" Organza Ribbon
My second project probably isn't to terribly new but it was an idea I had for an upcoming Craft Show and I thought I would share it with you. They are cute little Bunny toppers for our 1"x 8" Cellophane Bags. I used Whisper White Card Stock, Basic Black Card Stock, Pink Pirouette Card Stock and Basic Gray Card Stock. The punches I used are the Large Oval, Scallop Oval, 1 3/4" Circle, 1/2" Circle, Owl Builder, and Small Heart. Cute yet simple enough to make a bunch if you need them.
Thank you for stopping by and please let me know if you have any questions. I will be happy to answer them. Now I will send you on your way to Dawn's blog. Have fun! Tonya

Monday is here and I have been busy with projects both in the Stamping area and knitting. While I don't share the knitting ones with you I will be sharing the stamping ones. The ones for today feature the Pop-Up Posies Designer Kit from the Spring Catalog. This kit has the supplies to make nine tags and while I added a few extras to mine they are super cute just with the supplies included. The Calypso Coral tag is just the supplies that came with the kit. The kit is just $12.95 and includes: 9 embossed Paper tags, 9 fabric covered brads, precut paper flower pieces, 9 pieces of thick Very Vanilla Baker's Twine, and the Just for you wood mount stamp. I added some designer paper to two of the tags and even made one into a quick note card just by adding it to a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock that has been cut and scored into a 4"x 3 1/2" card. Please let me know if you would like more information about the kit or to place an order. I would love to help you out. Thanks for stopping by for my quick Monday project.

- They're age tested. They won't yellow or cloud up over time.
- They use FDA, food-safe material. How far can you stretch your stamping creativity?
- We could go on, but we'll let you try them for yourself.
