Wags n Whiskers Product Spotlight

Welcome back to Stamp and Create.
It's time for another Product Spotlight.
For the next two weeks, we will be showcasing Wags n Whiskers rubber stamps from the older releases. These images include the Kids n Pawz collections and the Wee Ones illustrated by the ever so talented Cris De Lara and Crissy Armstrong. These stamps will be available for 25% off.The Design Team created a few samples with a some of these stamps.
Just a quick reminder that I only handle distrubution to the US and Canada. All other areas can check out the Wags 'n Whiskers Blog for your store.
First we have, Chris: Chris used the Say a Prayer from Wags n Whiskers. This image is perfect for Thinking of you cards, sympathy or even sending a birthday prayer.The papers are a combo or Green at Heart and Eskimo Kisses from Basic Grey. The ribbon is May Arts pink silk. Since it is still our Charms challenge for our Monthly challenge at Stamp and Create, Chris added the cross charm. She also added white and pink mini roses.
Next is a card from Sharon:
Sharon used "Furry Friends" from Wags 'n Whiskers. This image is perfect for any occasion that involves friends or sisters! The papers used are Basic Grey Sugar Rush. Other products used are Diamond Stickles, Kaiser rhinestones, Ivory May Arts Silk Ribbon (tied with the AMAZING BOW EASY), and star charm to go along with this months challenge!
Check out this adorable project from Jeanette...

Jeanette used the digital version of Belle & Gemma's Spring Fun. She enlarged the image and then digitally cropped the image so that only one kitten is shown. She colored it with Copic markers, adhered it to a magnetic sheet and cut it out. Then she embossed it with UTEE (ultra thick embossing powder). You can get the same result by using a few coats of clear embossing powder. Now it is a gorgeous fridge magnet! With these sweet Wags 'n Whiskers digital images, the possibilities are limited only by your imagination!
Don't forget about the new release on friday!!

Don't forget about the monthly challenge here and the Weekly Wednesday Candy here.

Also, remember for the months of June, July, and August, all orders over $30 will be entered into a drawing for a $25 gift certificate!!

Challenge #2 - Charms & Popcorn Bear Product Spotlight

Welcome back to Stamp and Create!!

It's time for another Challenge!! On the first monday of each month, we will host a new challenge for a chance to win...

...a $20 gift certificate to Stamp and Create!!

I will be back soon with the winner of last month's Ribbon/Fibers challenge!!

This month's challenge is brought to us by Joy and her challenge is...Charms!!

The rules for the challenge are listed at the end of the post.

It's also time for a new product spotlight!! For the next 2 weeks, all Popcorn Bear stamps will be on sale 25% off (through June 20th)!!

These stamps are deeply etched unmounted-grey rubber. They all come with an accessory stamp as well as a few sentiments as well. But be warned...these are LARGE stamps!! Most will not fit on an A2 size card! But they are so adorable that you may just have to create larger square cards instead!!

To showcase the Popcorn Bear stamps, the Design Team have each used a different Popcorn Bear image...


I love how Joy used the backside of Popcorn!!

Sharon Sharon used the new Smile Popcorn bear stamp along with May Arts Silk Ribbon tied with the fabulous Bow Easy, and dangling from that is a heart charm. Just an FYI, Sharon excluded 3 of the floating balloons from this image since it was so large.


Jeanette used Popcorn Bear "Someone Special" which she colored with Copic Markers. She used paper from the Cosmo Cricket "Material Girl" pack and silk ribbon in Ivory. She created this perfect bow using the Bow Easy and finished off by adding this sweet teddy bear charm.

Lacey I used Party Time Popcorn Bear. This card is 6" Square so that gives you an idea of the size of this stamp (which is one of the largest along with "smile"). I used some Pink Silk Ribbon with the Bow Easy, Basic Grey Bittersweet DP, Flower Spacer 2, flower 2 charm, and Basic Grey large brad.

Now it's your turn!

Edited June 27th with new rules...

The rules are:

~ You may use ANY stamp!!

~ Post your card/project on your blog and link back to this challenge post. If you don't have a blog, you can use either Paper Craft Planet or Splitcoast Stampers to upload your card.

~ Make sure you mention that the challenge is for Stamp and Create Challenges.

~ Become a follower of this blog if you would like!

This challenge is open until midnight EST on July 4th.

Oh, and feel free to combine with how many challenges that you want!!
Happy stamping!
