Designer Type Photopolymer Birthday Card & Free Stamp Set of the Month Winner


Happy Friday!  Today's card is my very first card created using the Designer Type Photopolymer Stamp Set.  I was impressed how easy it was to position each letter in the right spot of the pennant image.  One tip I'd like to mention is to use a corner of your ink pad when inking your stamp to avoid any excess amount of ink on your block.  You will find out, otherwise....:)



This next card is slightly different from the first one shown above.  It was one of my make and takes projects at my Spring Catalog Open House. 



I love the Dazzling Diamonds on the cake!!!  It's a super easy trick with the 2 Way Glue!!!


Free Stamp Set of the Month - April 2013

Thank you to everyone who placed a Stampin' Up! order with me in April. I drew one winner from all of the online and email orders and the lucky stamper is ....Dolores M from Ohio to receive the Simply Soft Stamp Set. Congratulations, Dolores!!!

It's a new month and time for a new free stamp set giveaway. This month's stamp set is my favorite stamp set "Stacks of Wishes" from the Spring Catalog.  Please click HERE to learn more about my Free Stamp Set of the Month offer.  It could be YOU next!!!
