Stamping Away

Did you see? Kimmie commented on my tin below…yay! I am thrilled that you enjoyed the tin, that lion is just adorable and I was lucky enough to have a SGF get this set for me…thank you! Now tonight is the release party for My Favorite Things who is apparently releasing three new sets. I don’t have it yet but I will be receiving the new Mini set through PaperPretties and I have been eyeing the new twisted sentiments stamp set that the MFT Design Team has been sharing, they look wonderful! In fact Kimmie is one of the MFT Design Team members who has been show casing the new sentiments, so I decided to use one of my newer MFT stamp sets for the second challenge she posted for her birthday celebration….a sketch challenge! I love sketch challenges simply because no matter what the sketch each card that follows that sketch is always different. I took a different take on Kimmie's Sketch, taking it as a stepping stone and not an actual sketch persay....enjoy! I also decided to try out the Mojo Monday sketch challenge that Julee posted using one of my newer Verve Visual sets. I have now used two of the 6 I own…lol….I don’t feel so bad about purchasing those new sets yesterday. This set is called 'Seeing Stars' and it features all sorts of stars in some great designs and patterns. I just had to have this set, I was going through what stamps I own and I realize that I did not own any star stamps! So a solution appeared….Verve Visual has three fun sets using stars and I am enjoying playing with this set. This paper is also from the Basic Grey Two Scoops paper pack, I had not seen anyone use it and it sort of jumped out at me tonight so I gave it a whirl!Oh! Have you stopped by Nichole’s blog recently for all the PaperTrey news? I am so excited to see everything they have in store for their customers at PaperTrey. I ordered more than the 14 sets this year so I will be receiving the anniversary set and I am planning on placing an order, a nice size order. I did not place an order last month since I had not yet used the stamp sets that I picked up in December, so I think its time to ink those babies up! The challenge Kimmie posted today was all about making a Valentine’s Day card, so what better time to use the PaperTrey stamps!
