Hello, friends! How are you?
Remember when Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz was going though the forest chanting, “Lions and tigers and bears, oh, my!” Well that about sums up our August. Except for us, it’s been: Hospitals and surgeries and doctors, oh, my!
This has been my view for way too much of the time:
I am happy to report, however, that none of it was serious or life threatening, just par for the course when you’re the mama of multiple special needs kids. My kids are brave and strong and I love them so much. Everyone is now healthy, recovered, and thankfully, it is all behind us.
That means I can get back to playing with my stamps and sharing with you!
The first set I reached for when I finally got back to my craft room was “Wonderland” from the Holiday catalog, which YOU can order starting September 1st.
While this set was designed with Christmas in mind, it is so much more than that. For this card, I wanted to create a masculine design with the feel of a sunset, so I stamped the trees in the new archival black ink (also available September 1st) and sponged around them in Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie.
I added a layer of vellum and a wooden element colored with a black sharpie to make it pop. Linen thread adds a bit of texture.
This set is just one of the many new items I am thrilled about. If you love stamp sets that can be used for many occasions, you are sure to love this set, too!
Supplies: (First two items not available to purchase until September 1st.)
All of my customers will receive a complimentary copy of the amazing new holiday catalog, which should be arriving soon. Also, if you find yourself without a demonstrator and would like to become my customer, I will be happy to send you one! You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And to all of my customers who have ordered over the past few months, thank you! I appreciate you beyond words.
I have more fun projects up my sleeve, so be sure to come back soon.
Until then, happy stampin’ friends!
