Something special to share - and a giveaway

We are releasing our newest Kismet stamp set called "Buckaroo" very soon, and I am here today to share this fun set along with two designers that I admire!  This is the ninth stamp set from our"Kismet collection".  This stamp set will be available to purchase at midnight on July 14th.  You will find it HERE



I combined four different ink colors and splattered some white paint on top to give it a "rustic" look.

Sooo, here is the original stamp set that I drew for Cornish Heritage Farms back in 2007 - it was called Happy Trails.





 ....and here is the new and improved stamp set - Buckaroo - but in clear instead of red rubber:



All of the images are the same size.  Usually not all images fit on the 4 x 6 size, but Happy Trails was a smaller stamp set than most of the sets I designed for CHF.  I eliminated the sheriff star and added a smiley face and western-like border instead.  I removed the star from the boot and made it a separate image so that it can be added to the boot - or not.  Look closely and you will see all of the tweaking that I did  :) 

The cowboy hat fits on our fruits and vegges - the dinosaur on Party Posse, the butterfly from Giddy Bugs, our witch and the elephant from A Little Lovin

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

For more chances to win...please visit these truly talented gals:
Chan Vuong and Jen del Muro

I am so happy that you stopped by :)
