CHA NEW Stamps # 2 Giveaway for Seasonal Friends and Cupcake Party!

Tonight I'm showing 2 more new stamp sets that will debut at the CHA Show that you can enter to WIN just by leaving a comment on this blog! They fall into the ‘pretty’ category and I adore how they turned out! Yesterday’s post (see HERE) was more altered and a little wacky but we love mixing it up and creating totally different styles. Tomorrow I will post our Greetings From Wonderland and Mermaid Sets and Giveaway! On Wednesday, see some surprise sets and the chance to win them and an Altered Fairy Shadow Box Kit by Vicki Chrisman!

Months ago, I showed a variety of images and asked for votes. Some of those are ‘still in the works’ but several people loved the 2 seasonal ladies and asked for a set. It took ages to find 2 more ladies and then our graphic artist, Cindy van Koll, did her magic so they go together. Here is the final result
!
SL24 Seasonal Friends is a large stamp set 6 x 8” with 4 art deco style ladies in seasonal settings. The 4 sentiments are on banners, so you can use them separately. There is a little bird in each scene. Images are just over 2 ½” x 3” and banners are over 2 ½” x 3/4". I hope they get bigger when you click on the image!

I'm so lucky to have such a talented design team! They just started getting some of the new stamp sets and are going full tilt to create wonderful samples to send to the CHA Show! Look at this super pretty card DT member Michele Kovack created with the ‘spring’ lady.


I love the way Michele used Flower Soft on the tree branches and her cheerful colors make me want spring to come even more! This stamp set should be available in about a week. She also sent me a very COOL Alice card tonight from our Greeting From Wonderland set, which I will post tomorrow!


Lisa Zappa has been a busy girl creating more samples, this time with 2 of the ladies from our Seasonal Friends stamp set. I like the way she altered this image on the old Bingo card, adding a Tattered Angels Chipboard 'Font Frame' with letter F, sheet music and trims.

Here, Lisa decorated a clear plastic 'Spa gift bag' that would be so pretty to give as a gift to a friend. Again, there is that pink-robins egg blue color combo with a bit of yellow that makes me happy! I think in the middle of winter, when it's cold and wet these colors convey sunny happiness to everyone and they go great with the floral paper from our Classic Paper Pad!


Here is the back of the bag with 2 pieces of paper laced up corset style!


Okay, SL27 Cupcake Party may be one of my most favorite 'pretty' stamp sets we have ever done! I also have EXCITING NEWS - we are doing a die with AccuCut to match the bird, label, heart, butterfly and cupcake wrapper! This will be so pretty with the damask design stamped in different colors on plain white paper, or die cut from printed paper!

Die cutting is fast, so the die would be fantastic for weddings, birthdays, showers and other events! If your store carries AccuCut dies, they will often let you cut for free if you buy the paper from them. The stamp set and die are so new, they are sending them to our hotel, so we can do cupcake make-n-takes at both the retail Craft Super Show and the CHA Show. We will also have a revolving cupcake display - 5 layers high. I will take photos!
There are 26 separate stamps on this large 6 x 8" set with lots of mix & match words and little flourish designs you can stamp curled around them. The cupcake template stamp would use an enormous block, so Cindy split it in 2 and added small marks so you can easily line it up and stamp it together twice. The die fits it and will cut a fancy edge with tiny holes and diamonds but if you can't use the die, simply cut along the top edge with a pair of decorative scissors.

Imagine black on pink paper, red on white, brown on cream - very classy! Words: Happy Birthday, Cupcake, Sweetie, Congratulations, Kind, Wishes, Thanks, Showers of Happiness and Girlfriend. Glue name label to front, add the bird (1 3/4" x 3"), butterfly (over 3") or heart to the tops. This set will work fabulous for cards as well. Whew, can you tell I'm excited?

I also wanted to show you what the wonderful Splitcoast ladies have been up to. We've been so busy, I haven't been posting the challenges and I just saw all 14 of the stunning birthday cards for the last challenge and had to post the Gallery HERE! This is the host Darlene Pavlick's card she created using one of the chipboard Postcards from our Buds & Blossoms Kit. Click HERE to read the funny hints for this weeks challenge by Pammy Jo.


Lastly, as I've been showing so many pretty things tonight I had to take a photo of the surprise my husband Scott brought home for me today. It a jewelry armoire and it looks old and slightly shabby in the nicest way, but it's new and he found it at Liquidation world for $117.00. The top lifts up and has a deep velvet box, there are 2 side cabinets that open to hang necklaces and bracelets and there are 2 velvet lined drawers. I love it and him because he knew I would adore it. But he deserves the present because he has put up with my crazy hours.

Don't forget to leave a comment to be entered to win the Seasonal Friends and Cupcake Party Stamp Sets! Also, come back tomorrow night to see 2 more sets and enter again! Random winners announced Jan 25, 2010

Your husband is a darling Sandy! When I met him at the Creativ Expo, he was so sweet and so helpful... and hey, he brought you pizza that one day sans napkins but he did good anyway! That vintage beauty he got you gives him bonus points for sure.

Give Vicki an extra hug for me when you see her! Can't wait to see what tomorrow's post brings.

Lynne Phelps said...

The seasonal friends set is wonderful - also for giving card sets as gifts! The other set is fantastic - especially with companion die cuts. Are Accu-Cut dies sold only to retailers, or are they available for stampers like us? There is no local store in my area that carries this kind of thing.

JKB said...

What a great set!!! I really hope all is going well at the craft show.

Miriam said...
