Paper Smooches CHA Release Giveaway Day 2–Debonair!

 

Hello Peeps!!

 

Let’s get down to business – the winner of yesterday’s giveaway is:

Geo-Graphic Random NumberGeo-Graphic Winner

Karen, please email me with your mailing address, and we’ll get the Geo-Graphic stamp set out to you just as soon as it’s available!!  Congratulations!!

Nutty for you

So today’s Paper Smooches featured CHA Release stamp set is called Debonair.  Again, there are three different pattern strips to build borders.  There’s a houndstooth pattern, an argyle pattern, and a gingham pattern.  In this sample, I paired the houndstooth pattern with the acorn and sentiment from Falling For You.

Youre Tee Riffic

We called it Debonair because we felt like these three patterns are more masculine in nature, although I think they can totally be used for feminine projects, too!!  For this project I used the argyle pattern, and paired it with a sentiment from My Guy.  Perfect, right?!  [Actually, not quite so perfect . . . please forgive the ink smudges on the left side.  That’s what happens when I stamp late at night!  LOL]

 

I have an extra set of Debonair to give away to one lucky commenter – just leave a comment here some time before tomorrow morning!  I’ll choose a winner using Random.org.  For a second chance at winning, be sure and click on over to the Paper Smooches blog because Kim has another set that she’s giving away.

 

I am so grateful for all the wonderful comments that you all have been leaving.  I’ll be honest – I seriously worried that no one would like my designs.  But my heart is smiling with every one of your kind words and all of the amazing encouragement that you all have showered on me.  Thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart!!

 

Thanks for stopping by!

These background stamps are just too cool! I love the cards you made with them. The sweet little acorn and golf theme cards are just perfect for those men in our lives that are so hard to design cards for. Thanks for the inspiration!
