Sweet & Summery - day one!

With July, we usher in a brand new set of stamps ripe for the picking! And today's stamps -- boy are they ripe!

Introducing...






This set hand drawn by the ever-so-talented Marcella Hawley is another sure fire winner in our book. It's got a sweet and innocent flair to it that is sure to be used for all kinds of projects! I can see this on labels for sweet summer jam, on a tag of a basket full of strawberry muffins, or as you'll see on one of our designer's blogs -- on clothes!

We just know you'll love this sweet batch of summer as much as our Design Team did! Hop around to see all the fun things they created with this sugary sweet set!

Debbie said...

Oh my goodness! I've wanted some of your stamps for so long.
I had to dig up my strawberry patch when we recently built a craft house for me in our backyard.
I had to keep my budget intact for all the work we were doing, now I "need" to buy some of your beautiful stamps.
It would be even better if I could win.

I've loved your blog for ages!

take care!

What a wonderful set!!

Strawberry pie at JB's last Friday split three ways among us was a calorie savings to which this set would be a zowie topper, forget the whipped creme! award stamps! Yum yum!
My youthful quarter acre strawberry patch was not nearly as fun as this set will be. Jam, jelly, pie, and preserves okay; but A-2 cards, tags, gift boxes, fabric stamped hats, headbands, totes, stamped matching frilly topped socks sets accenting clamdiggers, shorts, tanks, jackets and campshirts spreads Set Strawberry charm and cuteness.
Keep Looking UP!

Delightful!

Laurie in MN said...

Marcella designed a set that is perfect for coloring. I aways like the white flower on the strawberry plant.

When my daughter was a toddler, my uncle planted strawberry plants in his flower garden so she would be able to pick strawberries. During the off season, he would buy strawberries, wash them and place them in the patch so she would always find strawberries to eat.

Donna Herrlinger said...

I work in a nursing home as a nurse, and I get to share my love of stamping with my residents once a month. If I could win this beautiful set, we could make some cards that would bring back such wonderful memories for them, especially strawberry picking.
