How Would YOU Like to Win Six New Stamp Sets?!



For the new challenge at
The Play Date Cafe
please scroll down




It's a very exciting day today !

All week long I've been sharing projects from


and today is RELEASE DAY and our team blog hop.

If you've come by way of our newest illustrator
then you are on the path of the hop.

If not, you will definitely want to start over at
because someone is going to 
win the
ENTIRE RELEASE
That's the SIX brand new stamp sets
we previewed this week.


I fell in love with this set designed by NinaB Designs for TCM
called 'Stitched Flowers' with the matching 'Stitched Sentiments'.
I stamped the flowers & did a faux-watercolor using Memento inks.
I used paper from Lily Bee Design as my wallpaper.
For a little interest, I punched a border on one edge and added
baker's twine, in Flax & Orchid by The Twinery, on the other.

I think it's always fun to place the sentiment on it's side
because it's 'unexpected'.

The tiny pearls are from Want2Scrap.


I know you will see all the sets on the TCM Website, so I am going
to show you a very special one here...


This terrific set is 'Summer Fun'and for a limited time is available
as a gift with a purchase of $50 or more.

I used this set in my post from yesterday as well...
you can check it out here

So here is how you can win....

Visit each designer's blog on the hop, leave a comment
{ there's only 16 total over 4 days...very do-able }
and you have until 9:00pm PDT, Sunday June 24th to do so.

They are all on sale today!!!
Don't wait!

Look forward to your comment and I will keep my fingers
crossed that YOU are a winner!

The next stop on the hop IS the talented
