And to get everything started today, we are busting out the doors with sneaks of TWO brand new stamp sets along with fabulous dies and the Clouds Impression plate! Let's me show you my first project and we'll chat. :)

The adorable set featured here is the brand new In the Clouds stamp set. This is a full sized stamp set on its own sturdy panel ready for easy storage and features 25 images/sentiment of high quality deeply-etched rubber! It was illustrated by our very lovely and and talented illustrator, Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line of stamps. The sky's the limit in this stamp set and you will find lots of fun whimsical blimps AND coordinating Blimp die set to match!! And what is a blimp without a message trailing behind it?? I love it! There are flags/banners in this set, and they ALSO coordinate with sentiments from the previously released It's a Banner Day 1 and It's a Banner Day 3 stamps sets! I'm betting you can find other sentiments that will work perfectly in these banners and flags. :) Just have a looksie...


And now I get to "clown around" a little...

Ack! How cute is this??! This is the new stamp set entitled, Life is a Circus. This adorable set features 17 super cute images and sentiments appropriate for all ages!!! This set is illustrated by the super talented illustrator of all those adorable penguins, Doug Applegate, for Apple Doodle Ink. There are two fun coordinating dies to match, and I used the Star Border Die here. Of course, it will be great on many other different projects...stars always make a fun embellishment!
