Woot! I am so excited! Today is the day and the Prettie Girls are sharing lots of eye candy using the all new Home Sweet Home stamp set (my first release!). Which, if you didn't start this hop at Christie's blog... you might have missed seeing some creations by some incredibly talented stampers! So hop on over to Christie's site and then work your way back to my blog. But make sure you come back because...
BLOG CANDY ALERT!!!
Yes, to celebrate the release of my first set we are going to give away a copy of the brand spankin' new Home Sweet Home stamp set to one lucky winner! All you have to do to win is leave a comment on THIS VERY POST. I'll then randomly select a winner from the comments Sunday evening about 8ish. *For all of you who post anonymously (you know who you are) make sure to include your name or some other kind of identifier (Julie P. for example) within the comment so I can tell who you are!
Not only are we introducing a BRAND new set by me and some incredibly cute new Sophias, but we are having an EXTRA SPECIAL party! Today is Christie's, the owner and operator of Paper Pretties, birthday!! Please join us at the party tonight to wish her a VERY happy birthday!! The festivities start at 8PM EST, so be there or be square!!
Now that you have read my novel of a post I bet you would like to see what I've been making with the set! I had a really difficult time trying to decide which cards to share now or save for later... so I decided to share a couple now and I will be back tonight with a card set that I made!
The first card uses the apartment building image which I LOVE. Oh and that little round pot thing on the top balcony... that is a little grill for balcony barbecuing! How else are you going to roast marshmallows for smores? :)
It doesn't show up well in this photo but after coloring the image with Copics I applied a thin layer of Crystal Effects to all of the little windows.
Stamps: Home Sweet Home. Paper: River Rock, Always Artichoke, Creamy Caramel, PTI Select White, designer. Ink: black, Copic markers. Other: Crystal Effects, Rich Regal brads, satin ribbon (May Arts), word window bunch, scalloped edge punch, dimensionals.
The second card uses the one story house and tree image. I love this sentiment too... perfect to use on a card or gift tag when giving a gift! :) Now just to find the perfect gift to go with this card! Hmm... maybe a stamp set? LOL!
Stamps: Home Sweet Home. Paper: So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, PTI Sleect White, Parisian Breeze Specialty designer. Ink: black, Copic markers, Close to Cocoa Classic. Other: vintage brads, mat pack, paper piercer, 1/4" circle punch, dimensionals, vintage brads, brown gingham ribbon (May Arts).
P.S. Don't forget about the BLOG CANDY! Make sure to leave a comment on this post. I will be randomly selecting a winner Sunday evening about 8PM EST.
*EDITED: I messed up the deadline to be entered to win the set! You have until Sunday evening to leave a comment. Sorry about any confusion that may have caused!
