THE CUTEST stamp set in the 2016 Occasions Catalogue | SNEAK PEEK | Can You Case It? | Freshly Made Sketches | My Friend

8:59:00 PM

Hello my friend and thanks ever so much for stopping by today - I made a virtual card for you. But, before I get to that, I had some technical issues yesterday and some of you email subscribers might not have received yesterdays post. Thats really sad because yesterday, I was a part of a trans-continental blog hop linking the Crazy Crafters (Australia) and the Poolers (UK). There is some awesome work and I'd hate for you to miss out. Click here to see the post.

On with the show...

Today, I am playing along with two challenges; 1. Freshly Made Sketches and 2. Can You Case It?
Here are the sketch (somewhat similar) sketch inspirations for the week;

And, here is the card I ended up with;

I'll be honest - when I first saw this set, I wasn't impressed. But, when I started to use it - I LOVE it! I love the matching framelits, I love the layered stamping, I LOVE IT! You will too! The set in question is called Playful Pals and contains no less than FIFTY stamps. Yes, you heard correctly 50 stamps. Its a Photopolymer set and is super easy to use/align.

See how nicely I cut out the shapes? It looks great because I didn't cut ANYTHING out - I used the matching framelits. The framelit set comes with 18 separate dies and is called Pyramid Pals. Ill show you a project with those in the coming weeks. And, you can bundle the stamp set and save 15% too.

I mentioned earlier that they are layered stamping - you might not be able to tell but the image is stamped in smoky slate on white and then over the top of that, the outline in black. Every shape has both a background and an outline and its super fun to assemble them all. 

Do you like the sentiment?

This is using a different stamp set - its actually from the 2016 Sale-a-Bration catalogue and is called Hello (be honest - did you just sing the Adele song in your head? 'Hello from the other side....'). This is a cute set available in wood-mount or clear-mount and comprising of nine stamps.
