It's Our May Release Blog Hop

May 2, 2013

 Hello everyone!   Welcome to our Designer Blog Hop.  I am so excited to finally showcase the products from our May Release.  All products are loaded up in the store and are available for purchase RIGHT NOW!!

Be sure to check all the way at the bottom of this post for information on how to win a $25 gift certificate to the store.

I created a few projects to share with you today featuring our Air Mail stamp set and Chevron Border & Bits Dies.




I created the first two projects using our Air Mail clear photopolymer stamp set.  I selectively inked the striped frame in this set to create the red border. After stamping the paper airplane and trail image, I tied the panel up like a little package.  I mounted everything on our new Sapphire Heavy Card stock.  I searched for the perfect dark blue for months and am so happy with this color.


I stamped a coordinating Pure White A2 Envelope using images included in our Air Mail set.  This Please Deliver To and envelope closure image make me SO happy! 


I created the following card using our To The Point stamp set, Blooming Banner stamp set, our Chevron Border dies and Chevron Bits dies. I love mixing and matching these coordinating sets!!


We have the amazing Amy Kolling with us as a guest designer this month and participating in the hop!  How lucky are we?  Hop on over to Chunyuan's blog next to continue the fun.

Love these cards. The red white and blue air mail card is darling and the twine is perfect for it. I love the chevron card too. Did you cut out the chevrons and then insert colored chevrons in? Whatever you did, it's a very cool effect.
