New High Hopes & WnW Spotlight part 2

Welcome back to Stamp and Create.
My High Hopes order has arrived!! Most of the stamps have been restocked. Plus I have added in many of the Circus theme and some fun Summer stamps as well. Go take a look.
High Hopes will be having a huge release soon!! Stay tuned for more information. I promise, it will knock your socks off!!
Here are a few cards I made awhile ago with some of the new stamps I have added to the store...

Juggles with Show Horse
Now here are some more samples from the Design Team showcasing some of the Wags 'n Whiskers stamps that are on sale this week.
Here is a simple card I made using He Loves Me. One of my favorite images!

This is Say a Prayer. What a wonderful card this would make for a Baptism, First Communion, or Confirmation!! Or just to tell a friend that you are praying for them. Other items she used are Silk Ribbon, Nestabilities Labels 10, Prima mini roses.
Jeanette has a great tutorial on her blog on how to create this pocket card.

This handsome boy is my son :-) and this stamp is called "Just for You". With Teacher appreciation and Mother's Day just around the corner, this image is perfect! Chris also used the Nestabilities Labels 10 and some Primas.
Product Update:
~ The Greeting Farm: New release on Saturday, May 1st! I have the stamps in stock and they will be ready in the store!!

Welcome back to Stamp and Create.
It's time for a new Product Spotlight! I hope you all enjoyed our CC Designs spotlight...looks like I need to place another order! They will have another release on May make sure to check the store for the newest CC Designs on release night!!

This week, we will be focusing on Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber Stamps designed by Crissy Armstrong! Her illustrations are just gorgeous and such a dream to color.
So for the next two weeks, the product spotlight will be any Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber Stamp designed by Crissy Armstrong - on sale for 25% off. You can easily find them in the store under "Kidz 'n Pawz".
The awesome Design Team created a few samples with a some of these stamps. I love how each card and design has a totally different look and feel.
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 up is Niki Estes...
This is "Just for You". This stamp was designed after my son. That's his doggie blanket BoBo on the floor. Ryan doesn't go to bed without BoBo!! Niki used some of the newest Cosmo Cricket DP called Material Girl. Works great for a boy card, huh?! This stamp is great for Mother's Day or Teacher Appreciation cards!!

This cutie is from Joy...
Joy used my angel Ansley in Say a Prayer. I think this image is great for many occassions...especially one of encouragement for a friend! Joy also used some Prima Roses and Shimmerz.

Next up is Chris Olsen
She used "Bear Hug". This image was also designed after my daughter Ansley. What a great image for sending hugs to a friend!! Chris has used a combination of Basic Grey Green at Heart and Nook and Pantry DP. She also used some Satin Ruffle Ribbon, an Open Bear Charm, and some Cream Trellis Roses. Gorgeous!!

And last (but not least), is Jeanette...
Jeanette's coloring always amazes me...and as usual, she did a wonderful job coloring my daughter Ansley in He Loves me. She also used some Basic Grey Swirl Pearls.
Make sure to check back on Thursday for more samples from the Design Team.

Wags 'n Whiskers Digital Stamps

Guess What?


That's right, Wags 'n Whiskers is now selling Digital Stamps of our first 2 releases!!
We are excited to announce that the 1st and 2nd release of Wags 'n Whiskers stamps are now also available in Digital format :-)
Enjoy the fun of "almost instant" gratification of digital stamping!! In addition to having no shipping fees and receiving your digital images within one day, you can also resize, flip, and alter digital images!! There are so many possibilities!!
And now all of the images from our first two releases are available in digital form!!

Still not sure what to do with Digital Stamps? How about incorporate them into a Digital Scrapbook Layout? Check out this layout I created with 100% digital items!!
Even the digital stamp was colored in photoshop. Here's a close up...

But the most common use of a digital stamp is to simply print it out, color it, and add it to a card.

Here's a card I created using the same colored digital image I created!!
I simply saved the image after I colored it in photoshop, printed it onto watercolor paper, then die cut it. The sketch is from Midnight Madness which is being sponsored by Stamp and Create.

Easter Spotlight Week 2

Wow! I was a bad girl last week and totally forgot to post the Spotlight cards on Thursday!! I'm sorry!
But here are some wonderful creations today from the awesome Design Team with samples of some of the stamps that are on the Easter Sale this week!
From Niki...
This is Bunny Blooms from High Hopes. I hate to say that he is already out of stock (he sold out quickly), but I love how Niki has used this "Easter" stamp for a "Get Well" card! Another High Hopes Bunny that would also be good for a card like this would be Bunny with Tulip. But this really shows you how these stamps can be used all year round.

Next is Jeanette...
She created this wonderful card using Just for You by Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber Stamps (did you know this stamp was designed after my son? And, no, I am not the artist...I can't draw)!! I love the dotted background she created.
This image wasn't necessarily designed just for Easter. We released it with the Spring release, but it would make a wonderful Mother's Day card for mom or grandma or even a great Thank you card for a teacher.
And the last sample for the sale is from Chris
Chris did a wonderful job paper piecing using Happy Day from Wags 'n Whiskers. She used the new Basic Grey Kioshi DP, Eyelet Lace, and Primas. Gorgeous!!
The Easter Sale will run through early Monday morning or while supplies lasts.

Other news...
~ Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps had a new release on Sunday! My stamps are on their way, but they take awhile to arrive from Canada. I have added them to the store along with the Tea Party stamps that have now been released individually as a Pre-Order. They will ship as soon as my order arrives.

~ CC Designs had a release last week. I inked up this cutie called Kiki La Rue Puppy Kiki. Isn't she adorable? And check out those primas and elelet lace.
~ Wags 'n Whiskers is having a lot of fun playing with their newest release "Let's Play"...
I made this card for the Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge - Scallops using the new Scooting By stamp. I also used some Basic Grey Green at Heart DP, Basic Grey pearls, primas, lace, and ric rac.

I will be sponsoring the Midnight Madness Challenge starting tuesday!! Come on and join the fun for a chance to win some goodies from Stamp and Create.

Happy Stamping!
