Today I Received This Stunner!!

Hi Everyone! I opened the mail today and received this card from my friend LeAnne Pugliese and I just had to share it. Not only is it a fabulous design, it's an amazingly fabulous use of the Sentiment Flags stamp set! Check it out.....

I just love the little snowman LeAnne made with buttons and hand cut cold weather accessories. I don't know how she did it but his scarf literally looks like it's blowing back in the breeze. I love how she did her snow using vellum and glitter. And have you checked out how she added her sentiment?? THAT'S RIGHT! It's the flag pole from the Sentiment Flags stamp set along with the wavy flag stamp which LeAnne has hand cut and I LOVE it like that. This is just super great! I love seeing what people are doing with my stamp set and die and especially love this one using the flag pole stamp. It's just so stinkin' clever.

Sentiment Flags die and stamp set is back in stock and will ship in time for Christmas! I'm even adding gift wrap at no additional cost. You can add your gift wrap request in a message to me at check out. Check out is available via the Add to Cart button at the top right of this page. Happy shopping and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!

Head on over to Wee Inklings to visit my pal LeAnne and to experience all her crafty goodness for yourself. Enjoy!

Sentiment Flags & Tags

Good morning! Just stopping by quickly to share this holiday tag I made featuring Sentiment Flags. I love discovering new purposes for Sentiment Flags! It makes a great way to feature a sentiment on a gift tag. Have a look....

I've had this reindeer kicking around for a few weeks. I punched him out with a new punch from EK Success and texturized him with my wood grain texture plate from PTI. I tied a ribbon around his neck along with a tiny jingle bell and added a glitter dot to his nose. Then I couldn't figure out what to do with him! So I decided a gift tag was in order and covered a tag with a scrap of paper from Cosmo Cricket's Oh Joy paper pack which is digital and available at Jessica Sprague. Then I stamped a Sentiment Flag with a white border using the polka dotted border from the Sentiment Flags stamp set and added my holiday sentiment in Ridinghood Red ink. I like how it turned out with my gingham ribbon which is older than dirt and might be the first ribbon I ever purchased (and still have because I'm a hoarder!)

You could even use Sentiment Flags on a tag to add a "To & From" stamp or even write by hand! Again, many versatile uses and I'm so glad I got a chance to show you this today!

Sentiment Flags makes a great stocking stuffer for a crafty friend or for yourself! At only $15 plus s&h, the price is right and I can even add pretty gift wrap at your request at no additional charge. We still have plenty of time to ship in time for the holidays!

Something New For You!

Hi there! These new digis I purchased from digistampcharacters on Etsy are really getting my creativity going. I colored this guy a few nights ago and thought it would be a good one to pair with Sentiment Flags. So I thought I would play along with this week's Sketch For You To Try and saw we could use any past sketch so I pulled out this one:

Here is what I did:

I got a HUGE (for me) response on my Color Throwdown card this week over at Splitcoast Stampers, so I tried my hand at another "ribbon collage". I've had this Merry Christmas twill in my stash for a few years and this is the first time I've whipped it out! I think it looks nice tied around the red and white ribbon. I added a corduroy button and some jingle bells and baker's twine. Following the sketch I used some of my most favorite Mitten Weather papers from Cosmo Cricket.

Of course I manage to sneak in a Sentiment Flag die, but this time I stamped a dotted background and added my sentiment in eggplant ink and opted for no border. Just one more way SF can be used!

Sentiment Flags die and stamp set have been restocked here in the shop and retail for $15 plus s&h. I happen to think they make a fabulous stocking stuffer for a crafty friend at that price! Click on the Add to Cart button on the top right hand side of this page to get yours in time for the holidays!

Proof Set Available & Eye Candy

Hello there! I'm back again with another stock update and more gorgeous eye candy for your viewing pleasure!

First off, I have ONE proof set of stamps still in stock and available for purchase right now. The price is reduced to $13.50 plus s&h and comes bundled with the die.
This set is EXACTLY the same as far as quality as a regularly sold set, however, the flag pole is different. It is shorter and can be colored in but the 5 sentiments and 5 borders are all exactly the same, no changes.

After playing around with the proofs that were mailed to me, I decided the flag pole in the final set should be longer and a solid image so that small change was made.

If this doesn't bother you and you'd like to get your hands on the sentiments and borders now as opposed to waiting I invite you to click on over to add it to your cart.

Plenty of single dies are still available for purchase by themselves at $5 plus s&h and I will know in a few days when I will have more of the regular (non-proof) stamp sets back in stock.

While you're here, check out this FABULOUS eye candy made by my friend Tammy Hershberger....

Tammy made this cutey card using new stamps and snowflake die from The Cat's Pajamas. Isn't her placement of the Sentiment Flag with the snowflake just so perfect?! Again, it makes me smile to see how well Sentiment Flags coordinates perfectly with all of your favorite stamps! :) You can read more about Tammy's card on her blog HERE! Stop on by and make sure you said I sent you!

I think it's really cool that Sentiment Flags has so many versatile uses and can coordinate so well with so many of your favorite stamps! To read more about Amy's card, please visit her blog HERE.
