PS DT Blog hop - Tsukineko

Today the Paper Smooches design team is stamping with a generous donation from Tsukineko.  We are using their new Luxe inks.  ONE winner will be chosen from one of the design team blogs to receive an amazing prize package (shown below).  All you need to do is leave a comment.  You won't know which blog has the prize, so you will want to comment on all of the DT blogs if you can.

The deadline to enter is Sunday, August 25th.  The winner will be announced on the Paper Smooches blog on Monday, August 26th

Savannah O'Gwynn (our guest) (click to see her video!)
The prize consists of 2 Tsukineko Luxe inks, 2 Tsukineko Memento inks, 1 Tsukineko Versamark ink cube and ALL 4 new stamps sets that release on September 1.  Definitely something to play for!  Our PS DT Blog hop is next Thursday...make sure to stop by and see card samples using these fresh new stamp sets!  Here is the prize package:

...and here is my card.  I used Lilac Posies, Love Letter, Pear Tart and Toffee Crunch Luxe inks.  They are dreamy to stamp with!  Please keep in mind that I tapped the ink lightly onto my stamps to allow some of the color to show through underneath.

1. I inked up our Borderlicious stamps and stamped them all at the same time onto a light tan card stock base.
2. Use Calico stamp set to add color
3. Embelllish with epoxy stickers and twine.
4. Pop up sentiment block (sentiment is from Simply Said stamp set)

 
The name Wendy was made up for the book "Peter Pan."
