July New Release and Blog Hop - Your Next Stamp


It has arrived! The July release and blog hop for Your Next Stamp!  This release has so many fun sets and dies to boot that you will surely just want to order the whole lot.  These releases just keep getting better and Karen does not disappoint.



For my first card, I am using the new set called Me Time.  We all need some time like that and this one just exudes such a feeling. I would love to curl up in this oversize chair with a good book and relax.  Without interruption...  :)





I was trying to get the worn in look of leather on the chair using some watercolors and distress inks.  I think I may a little ways to go to perfect the look, but overall I like it.  The lamp was paper pieced using some light blue patterned paper while I used some Copics and Spica pens for the mirror.  I popped up the chair, table, and coffee mug for some dimension cut out using the coordinating die set. The patterned papers used are from AC and the look was complete by adding the sentiment across the bottom.

My second card here is a little more on the CAS side to make for a quick card you can send to someone to remind her that she needs to have some 'me time.'


First my disclaimer... I promise I did not stamp this on the crooked side. LOL! I think I may have taken the picture at an angle and didn't quite catch it while editing. So trust me when I say it is straight. :) The background paper is from MFT's watercolor collection and the books were colored in with Copics.  I popped up the plant cut out with the coordinating die and stamped the sentiment directly onto the panel using two colors.  I completed the card with some matte gumdrops.

Now before you hop off to the next member to leave a little love so you have a chance to win, don't forget to keep in mind the awesome deal waiting for you during this release - 20% OFF your entire purchase! 



This is an awesome deal and one you do not want to pass up! You will be able to check off all those you want on your list!   Thanks so much for stopping by!
