Exciting News!

Hello everyone! I have got some exciting news to share with you today, and boy am I happy to finally let it out!......... I am a stamp designer for Papertrey Ink!!! Stamping Simply is the name of my stamp line; kind of a different take on my blog name, Simply Stamped. Since Simply Stamped is where I share my stamped creation with you all, I thought it would be fitting to name a stamp line Stamping Simply, which is what I do when I make the creations I share.

Fortunately, I don't have to wait very long to share my first set with you, which will be available on March 15th. But for now, in honor of Papertrey Ink 4th anniversary, the stamp designers have put together a few fun circle tag images (that coordinates with a 1.75" circle). Nichole has assembled a downloadable PDF, including all of these images, which is available to you for free.

All of you are challenged to create a project from one of these images, submit your creation to win and become a Guest Stamp Designer! One randomly selected customer will be chosen to work with Nichole on the creation/concept of a stamp set to be released in May. How exciting it that!!! Check out Nichole's blog for all the details.

Here's a card I created using my "Celebrate You!" pinwheel tag image...
I started with a white card base. Stamped a white cardstock strip with two different sized polka dots, in Enchanted Evening and Sweet Blush, and attached. Die cut a Mat Stack #5 from Pink Shimmer cardstock and adhered. Wrapped the card base with Berry Sorbet twill ribbon.
Printed the pinwheel circle onto white cardstock. Colored the pinwheels with Enchanted Evening, Berry Sorbet and Sweet Blush colored Copic markers. Then colored the circle outline with a Berry Sorbet colored Copic marker. Punched the circle out, attached it to an Enchanted Evening scalloped circle with dimensional adhesive, and then attached the scalloped circle on top of the ribbon.

I truly can not wait to see what you all create for this challenge! Hope you enjoyed the news and have a wonderful day!

Maile


Celebrate You!

  23. Ohhh, this is what I was hoping for when you said you were very bust with things you couldn't share yet. Wahoooo!!!! If you somehow found a way to bottle up for fab style, I am a goner. One of the things that makes Dawn so great and puts all of her sets on my NEED list is all of the cards she makes with all of her sets on her blog. The constant examples really create that need for me. Hopefully you will find tons of success.

    It's a good life!
