Something special to share - and a giveaway

Yesterday we released a NEW stamp set called Yummers and I am here today to promote this sweet set along with two of my talented friends!  This is the second stamp set from our new Kismet collection.
























I pulled images from many of my former CHF stamp sets.  Most of the images are from the "Baked With Love" set.  Other images are from "The Birds and the Bees", "Birthday Bash", "Sweet Thang" and "Hugs and Kisses".  I also pulled images from some Paper Smooches stamp sets Sugar Rush - the dots, gumdrop and sprinkles (you can never have enough of these...they can be used on a block together to cover more area)...I flipped the coffee bean from Hot Concoctions and made it smaller, so that it would work with the other image in the set...kind of like a Dad and son pair.

My card sample photographed a bit wonky...the canvas brad is actually the same color as the pink ink...but you get the gist, right?  The yellow seems a bit bright too (sigh)





















I stamped the top of the cupcake on a separate piece of paper, stamped chocolate sprinkles...cut it out and add it to the base image.

















I have one "Yummers" stamp set to give away to one lucky person!  Please tell us what your favorite yummy treat is.  You have until midnight on December 18th to leave a comment.  I will post the winner here on Monday, December 19th. 

For more chances to win...please visit these super wonderful girls:

Kim Kesti

and

Jaclyn Miller

AND...I have an announcement to make. 

You might be aware that we had a designer search to fill one spot on our team.  That position has been filled by the very talented EMILY LEIPHART  :)  We are thrilled to have her.  She has been incredibly supportive of Paper Smooches and wow is she such a clever designer!  We have featured her work in the past (and she was our guest designer in October) and she is a member of our Sparks DT.  Since she is a PS designer now, we will be replacing her over at our Sparks challenge blog. LORI BARNETT will be taking her place.  She has mad coloring and design skills.  I am confident that these girls will inspire and impress you.  My humble thanks to all who applied...you are all fantastic designers :)

Thanks so much for stopping by friends
