Paper Smooches Giveaway–Potpourri!!

Hola Peeps!
First things first:  Yesterday’s winner of Chit Chat:
Chit Chat Random NoChitChat Winner
Congrats, Amy!!  Please email me your snail mail address, and I’ll get the Chit Chat stamp set out to you right away!!

It’s time for another Paper Smooches CHA Release Sneaky Peek – and a giveaway!!  Woohoo!!
Hang In There
Today’s set is called Potpourri, and I designed it.  Eeekkkkk!!  The set consists of six different 2” x 2” graphic images that are super fun to “build” with, or just use them on their own, in conjunction with the other Paper Smooches images.  I have several samples to share with you today.  The first one uses the four circle image.  I stamped it three times in two different ink colors.  I then punched one of the circles out for my bat to hang onto (the bat and sentiment are from Falling For You).  I also stamped the Houndstooth background (another CHA background that I designed for Paper Smooches) on the bat, to give him a little pizzazz.   Fun, right?!
Forever and for all Eternity
My second sample features the quatrefoil image from Potpourri that is AH-mazing to work with!  I stamped it over and over in VersaMark and then heat embossed it in white to create the background.  The sentiment is from Pretty Phrases.  I ADORE this image and am so thrilled with how easy it is to work with!
Lets Party
Here’s another sample using the polka dot circle from Potpourri, stamped in three different colors.  The sentiment is from Word Salad.  (The layout of this card was inspired by a card I saw on Maile Belles’ blog – found HERE.)
You Color My World
My last sample is a mish-mash of a couple of the images designed by me for the CHA release.  The petals image is another of those that can be stamped repeatedly to create a background or border – it’s from the Potpourri set.  The middle section is the Chevron image from Geo-Graphic, and the third section is the houndstooth border from Debonair.  The sentiment is from Word Salad.

See how easily these fun, graphic images pair with the existing Paper Smooches images to create a great pop of interest?!!  Potpourri, as well as the other CHA release sets, will be available for sale on March 1st – just a few short days away!!

Kim has given me an extra set of Potpourri to give to one of you, my darling readers, and all you have to do is leave a comment here on my blog some time before tomorrow morning.  I’ll draw a winner using Random.org, and post it here tomorrow.  Kim is ALSO giving Potpourri away on the Paper Smooches blog, so if you want a second chance to win, be sure and click on over to leave her some love, too.  And be sure you tell her I sent you!

That’s it for me today, kids!  Thanks so much for stopping by . . . hope to see you again tomorrow!
