Something special to share - and a giveaway

On April 15th, we will release our newest stamp set called "Spring Groves" and I'd love to show you a sneak peek!  This is the sixth stamp set from our "Kismet collection".

If you remember, I created a Spring Trees set along with Summer, Fall and Winter...you be sure that those sets will be "brought back to life" as well.   (yay...I can't wait to create with them again).  The bird came from the old "Pretty Birds" stamp set.  All images are the original size, but have been tweaked and improved.
























I took the "graphic" route with my card this time.  I love card stock!  I thought it might be fun to color block the tree to add interest.  I stamped the tree onto the card base and all three card stock colors.  I think cut a strip form each, rounded the corners and added the papers over the card base.  It was really fun to create.  This was an afterthought, but the yellow button is the sun, the blue papers are the sky and the grey paper can be a bit of rain (perfect for springtime).
























I have one "Spring Groves" stamp set to give away to one lucky person!  You have until midnight on April 15th to leave a comment.  I will post the winner here on Monday, April 16th. 

For more peeks of this stamp set in action AND for more chances to win Spring Groves...please visit these ohhh soooo talented friends of mine:

This new set goes live on our web site at midnight - eastern time on April 14th

Thanks for spending a piece of your day with us :)
