Swing Into Spring - Day 3!

There are times in your cardmaking when you just need to reach for a stamp that oozes sophistication and class. Nothing does that better than a beautiful background that you can play off of with some elegant words. Thanks to the talented artistry of Marcella Hawley.... we have just that stamp!


Introducing.....


This stamp with its dainty design is a perfect companion to our Thinking of You set that was released late last year. All of the elements are designed to mix and mingle for those times when a simple background and heartfelt sentiment will do.


You'll have to see what the Senior Design Team did with this fabulous new background! A lot of them did pull out their Thinking of You set to show you just what you can do with the whole collection!

FYI: If you have loved the Thinking of You set and haven't added it to your "stamp collection" - don't worry! We are going to be offering Thinking of You in a bundle with the other three new sets at 10% off! We'll also have our new release bundle, which will offer all three sets at 10% off as well. All of the sets will be live in the store as our release party wraps up tomorrow night! So... get ready to shop! It's only a matter of time before you can have these beauties in your inky little hands!

When I saw the sneak peak earlier in the week, I thought it might be DP that I was seeing. I didn't think about a background stamp. It coordinates beautifully with Thinking of You -- and probably very well with lots of floral images.
