Today is Wednesday, so you know what that means, it's time for another Paper Pretties Challenge! This week we are doing things a bit differently, instead of having a blog hop and challenge we are just having the challenge and saving the hop fun special occasions!
So this week our challenge is to use ribbon on your card! Now I don't know about you but I simply love ribbon it doesn't matter what color, shape, style, texture it's all wonderful to me! I decided that for my ribbon today to use this really fun two toned grosgrain ribbon from May Arts. I paired it with this great paper from the Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety 6x6 Mini Deck which I got from the Paper Pretties Store, I am loving this paper pack, there is such a mix of cuteness!
Have you noticed the image I used today? This uber-cute owl stamp is one of our 12 new releases coming your way tomorrow, Thursday the 12th of August! We will be having an amazing Blog Hop in celebration of our release plus the stamp sets will be going live to the store at 7am EST!
Okay, sorry I digressed...back to my current card! I inked up this soon to be released owl stamp set called 'Give a Hoot'! This stamp set is one of 7 stamp sets that are being released from our new illustrator Victoria Case! I have simply loved all of her designs since I first laid my eyes on her work and I am beyond thrilled to get the chance to work with these stamps as a Design Team Member! I used my Labels Eleven Nestabilities Dies and decided to work with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge this week for some added fun to this card! I hope you liked my card and preview of another stamp set to be released tomorrow! Here are a few things to remember about our Grand Re-Opening, these words are straight from Heather's post!
1. We have 12 new sets being released on Thursday! 5 of them are from our INCREDIBLE veteran illustrator Joni Stringfield and 7 of them are from a brand new Paper Pretties illustrator! I am thrilled to tell you that Victoria Case has joined the Paper Pretties team as our newest illustrator! Victoria is amazingly talented and sweet as can be. You are going to LOVE her images!
2. All NEW Paper Pretties sets from here on out are going to be Clear Photopolymer sets. I want you to know that I did a lot of research and made sure I found the highest quality clear stamp manufacturer possible. I am VERY picky about clear stamps and I am EXTREMELY happy with the quality of our new stamps. The reason for the switch is to make our Paper Pretties sets more affordable for everyone! The new sets will have more sentiments and accessory stamps than the old sets and they will considerably less expensive for you! It also allows me to release more images every month, so it is a win-win situation for everyone!
3. We will be having a blog hop on Thursday, showcasing all of the new releases.
4. The new stamps will be available in the Paper Pretties store beginning at 6am CST on Thursday Aug. 12th. We will also be having several sales specials and prizes!
Last but not least, remember Paper Pretties is now State side, which means faster shipping times, lower shipping costs, and fabulous customer service! I sure hope you join us in the Blog Hop tomorrow, now head on over to the Paper Pretties Blog to see all of the creations for today's challenge and more new stamp set previews!
