We are happy to announce our new stamp release! We hope you all like the new stamps, and they are something you can use in your creations. For the next 3 weeks we will be spotlighting 3 of our Stamp Release designers Lisa Foust, Sandra MacLean, and Nancy Torfin. They have made wonderful cards for our release using our new stamps. We will feature each of their works each week. We also have 3 great blog prizes up for grabs! All you need to do to be entered to win the weeks prize is comment on at least one of the cards each week! Your definitely not limited to just one comment, but names will only be entered once each week :) At the end of each week we will enter all the peoples names who commented and pick a random winner!
Thanks again for coming by to see our featured designers hard work!
Here we are with the final week of cards. I'm about to find our 2nd weeks winner, so watch your emails :) Thanks again to everyone who helped make this happen.

Jana has been a great help to us throughout our first year in business. She has been on all of our Design teams and has all but ran our group on PCP. I love her sentiments, she writes better sentiments for our images than I do :) (I actually have plans to use some of them once we create a sentiment release)! Her creations are always full of great humor and I have loved every thing she has created using our stamps. Jana is very talented and we wouldn't be here without her!
From the Designer:
I typically use my SU and Distress Ink reinkers with my aquapainter brush to watercolor my images. Because the rubber sentiment is quite flexible, I straightened it up on my acrylic block and stamped it out next to the skateboarding dude. The papers are from My Minds Eye and the adhesive pearls are from Kaisercrafts. I like to machine stitch around my cards to help pull it all together.
From the Designer:
I started with stamping the image (Free entertainment) on some Neenah white paper. Colored Free Entertainment with my copic markers - greys (black is way too black). I then put together the card using some Basic Grey Origins paper (from the 6x6 paper pack). When it was done, I needed a little bit more, so I stamped the sentiment above the dogs using some PTI Fresh snow ink - it' s one of the best "white" inks I have found.
