Big News!!

The big release day is here!! Congrats to my Stamping Idol, Shannon, on the release of her new stamp line!! Woohoo you go girl!! I love these new images. They are unlike anything I've ever seen before - bold, modern, manly! And the sentiments that go with them? Divine, flirty, smart!

I'm so happy that Shannon asked me to help promote her new line. Digital stamps have such interesting possibilities! Here, check out my project:

I printed this out and colored it up with my Copic markers. I love how there's enough to color, if you want, and it's design is great if you want to keep it simple and straight. I created a background paper to bring in the sea and sun using Ranger's distress inks, and some glimmermist from Tattered Angels. Love doing that!

Simple accents, some twine, some texture - this will be my Dad's birthday card. You remember those guys, right? Think maybe they don't appreciate stuff like this? Have you ever sent flowers to a man, and hid around the corner watching? Sent my Dad some carnations one year when I couldn't be home for his birthday. I figured he'd "poo-poo" them and they would just default to Mom....welllll...she called me later when he was out mowing, and told me he snipped one of those carnations off and wore it in the buttonhole of his shirt to have coffee with his buddies. Had I been home when he got those? Well, the male ego is a fragile thing!

Alrighty - enough rambling. Pop over to Shannon's blog or store to check out the other things she has and her opening special! And, don't forget to visit Mary to see her awesomeness!! Yay Shannon!!!

Ta for now! ~ky


  1. Nice stamps, and I love our background paper! I, too, love using Distress Ink and Glimmer Mist. Love the added twine and embellishment, too; they complete this card beautifully. What a special Dad you have! I sent my DH flowers at work years ago, and he hid them in the back room, lol! Happy Weekend and Creating!
