Home of the Brave Stamp Launch

IMG_1681

Today I am so excited to share two cards that I designed for the launch of the new stamp set by http://www.jessicalynnoriginal.com called “Home of the Brave”.  This is an amazing stamp to have in your stash to create cards (or scrapbook layouts) for the real heroes of our country ~ our very own military family!

Thank You Card for MFT Stamps

IMG_1746

I’m always touched by people’s kindness!  I always believe that the kindness that you show will always be reciprocated but I am sometimes wrong!  Today, however, a wonderful person that works at MFT Stamps showed kindness to me.

 

I had some problems with a defective stamp (totally not MFT’s fault) and wanted to see if it was going to be replaced. I contacted MFT Stamps immediately. Brianna of Customer Service responded to my email so quickly and asked me to send her photos of the defective stamp and what my order number was so she can take a look. I realized then that I actually ordered the stamp set from a different shop and not directly from MFT. I sent her a copy of the invoice where I ordered the stamp set originally. She responded again a few minutes later to let me know that she will contact the shop and she will arrange to send me a replacement immediately. I was really touched by how my little dilemma was immediately taken care of and how nice Brianna was to me on her email.   It’s very rare these days, unfortunately to receive such a nice gesture from somebody.  MFT Stamps is already one of my top 5 favorite companies, but with the great customer service I just received ~ they just became my number 1!

 

Here is the Thank You card.  This card is made especially for Brianna and the amazing, wonderful people at MFT Stamps! Please don’t ever change!  You guys have the biggest hearts!

Beary Special Birthday Cards

IMG_1735

Here are my design team projects this week for http://www.not2shabbyshop.com showcasing Beary Special Birthday stamp set from MFT Stamps.  I have also used the matching dies with the stamp set, plus the Tag Builder Blueprints No. 5 and the Flop Card-Oval Dienamics.

 

Here are photos of the other two cards that I have designed.  The white on white card on the video was also my entry for the MFT Stamps sketch challenge no. 291. I hope you got inspired!

Birthday Bear Card ~ MFT Stamps SC291

Another week has passed and there is a new sketch challenge at MFT Stamps no. 291.  I recently received the Beary Special Birthday Stamp set and I couldn’t wait to play with this.  A process video of this card will be posted soon here on my Blog and on my YouTube channel so please stay tuned.

 

Here is my rendition for this week’s challenge.  I also used the wonky windows die-namics, pink and white vellum to add the balloon, string and bow on the side of the frame, and finished off the design with 6 mm sparkling clear sequins from http://www.katscrappiness.com. I love how this one turned out.

Down Under ~ Australia Zoo Stamp Launch

Today we are going to go “down under” to explore the beauty of Australia, through JessicaLynnOriginal’s new stamp set called Down Under-Australia Zoo. The images on this set are just beautiful!  If I were not swamped with design team projects and an upcoming travel in a few days, I would have made more samples for you. However, I was able to make three:

This Koala Bear is just adorable!

I love the sentiment that I used for the card below and paired it with a Brentwood digital stamp and my favorite Magnolia Doohickey Die called “Lovely Umbrella”.

The last card below is my favorite.  I am currently addicted to layering white on white card stock.  It is very clean and simple.  I also added some vellum leaves and sparkling clear sequins to finish off the design.  What do you all think?

I love Mermaids!

The new mermaid stamp sets from The Greeting Farm just captured my heart! The images are so adorable, I just had to order them all.  Here are the two cards that I designed yesterday using Maisea and Trishell stamps, with dies from Diemond Dies.  This is also my last post as a guest designer for Diemond Dies.

 

Here are the photos, and I am also sharing a process video on how I made the card.

Shaker Luggage Tag | Shaker Tags & Shaker Bookmark

Some fun and easy projects that I made using sequins and confetti by http://www.katscrappiness.com.

 

I love creating shaker tags and before I left for London a few weeks ago, I decided to create a fun luggage tag.  It held up quite nicely and survived 2 international trips so far!  I love making unique projects.

 

Here are the photos of the project but I also have a video available for you below where I showed all of the projects I made and a process video for the bookmark. I hope you get inspired:
