Push Your Crafting to the Limits


The projects above are made with one of our new stamp sets Painted Harvest.  This stamp set is not only great for making fall flowers there are endless possibilities with different color schemes for flowers all year long.  I have already ordered several of these for my customers and one for myself.  The projects above were designed for a more seasoned crafter, however, if you are a newer crafter don't let this intimidate you!  These are great projects to push you outside of your comfort zone.  Plus there is coordinating Designer Series Paper with a hand-painted look to help.

The stamp set has a coordinating leaf punch and when purchased together you receive a 10% discount.  Get yours now by visiting my On-Line Store.

Make sure to use the Hostess Code for September when checking out.  You can find the code on the top right corner of this page.  After I receive confirmation of your order I will send you a Full Color Tutorial containing SIX different projects.

Christmas Card Sample

I thought I would share with you over the next couple of days a few of the cards we made at my Stamp A Stack.  I initally was going to have everyone make 10 cards (2 of 5 designs) however once I got started I was having so much fun using some of my new Holiay sets that I couldn't stop so I made 10 cards with only one that was duplicated.

If you haven't looked at the Holiday catalog you definitley will want to.  Click here to start browsing.  There are some beautiful and fun filled stamps.

These cards were done at my August Stamp A Stack.  Very easy and quick to  put together.
