And that means a new stamp release from The {Stamps} of Life! This fabulous Thanks2You set is so fun. You'll find the dandelions from the company logo in two sizes, a couple of different flower silhouettes and outlines, and a bunch of great ways to say Thank You!

First up is a completely digital card, inspired by the stage decor at church! I'll have to snap a photo next week so you can see what I'm talking about. I went digital with this card because I didn't have any white ink or embossing powder and so digital was the only way to accomplish the look I wanted. I created all of the elements myself, from the linen background paper to the scalloped circle.

Next is a pink and cream palette. Before I started this card I decided I wasn't going to use any ribbon on this one. That was SO hard for me! I love ribbon, I have a TON of ribbon in just about any color you can imagine, and I tend to use ribbon on all of my cards - it's my go-to accent! But I really wanted to see what else I could come up with, so I ended up with two paper strips on the cream block.

The third card was quick and easy - some paper strips, a few circles, a stamped wavy sentiment and the mini dandelions and I was done.

The final card is my favorite. I love the blues, I love the feminine touches of the soft ribbon, white paper roses, embossed and punched white accent.

February 2010 - Special Release Stamps!

Here are the cards I've created so far using the special release stamps for February. These are SO much fun - I love the paisleys (Build-a-Paisley), the tiny words (Tinyand2Cute), and the alphabet blocks (Blocks4abc)! More to come, I have few more to make before March 1!
