My Cute Stamps - Celebrate Chandelier, Free Stamps & Blog Candy!!
Today is my day to show you one of the brand spankin' new stamps that has just been released by My Cute Stamps, and boy am I excited!! Can I tell you how much I love these My Cute Stamps? Their quality is fantastic, and the images just inspire the bajeebers out of me!! I don't know what it is, but I take one look at nearly every single one of the images and my brain just explodes with creative ideas. I have LOADS of My Cute Stamps samples to share with you over the next several weeks, so I hope you like them.
My sample today features Celebrate Chandelier. The idea for this card was inspired by several of the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges over at Splitcoast Stampers last week. I love the fun and vintage feeling of this chandelier image. I stamped it onto clear cardstock using Jet Black Stazon. I then attached self-adhesive black jewels in the places on the chandelier that would normally be blingy and dramatic. I feel like the jewels really added some cool dimension, don't you? This would be a fun birthday card, wedding card, or even a Girl's Night Out card. All of the images in this set are really great - fun yet vintage. Perfect!!
So, I know you're probably saying, "Gee, I wonder where Karolyn got these cool My Cute Stamps . . . I'd really like to buy a set for myself!" Well, of course you could race right over to ABC Toys & Crafts and buy not only this set, but ALL of the new releases.
