CLEAN..CARD..NEWS

I have three things to share today--

1. Clean--Well, after working on cleaning up my stamping space and closet yesterday, I have TONS of stamps to get rid of (yipeee!). Here is a quick peek of two of the piles. I will list the stamps (after I get some much needed work done!) Stay tuned. They all have to go--and cheap!

2. Card- I did work on a card that I can show you today. Woohoo! I have two back to back releases for Gina K and My Favorite Things coming up so I have been doing a lot of stuff that I cannot show you JUST YET!!!

Thought I would pull out some of my Starving Artistamps to play with a create a quick "cool" card! I LOVE this mosaic background---I masked the stamped penguin and stamped the background so that it looks like it is cracked glass (cold!!!).

This was simple to create and I love the effect of the mosaic background. Starving Artistamps is coming out with some awesome new stamps soon too!!! You can find these stamps and lots more at http://www.starvingartistamps.com/.

Materials used: stamps-mosaic by Starving Artistamps, penguin and sentiment- Artful Inkables; ink- black, bayau, soft sky; cardstock-silver, soft sky, bayau blue, white; silver cord (SU!); snowflake punch (Martha Stewart); Cropadile; silver eyelets and brads (SU!); silver ribbon (Offray); creative memories cutting system; oval punches (Stampin' Up!); dimensional stickers (SU!); corner rounder punch (Creative Memories); Copic markers.

3. News- I mentioned before Christmas that I had some very exciting news!!!!! Since Gina K announced it on her blog yesterday--I guess the cat is outta the bag.
Yipeee!!!! I have a new stamp set that will be released by Gina K Designs this weekend. (http://www.ginakdesigns.com/) I am soo excited. (For those who don't know, I released my first set with her in September.)
This set is very different from the first--I am really excited to share it with you. I do have a few sets to give away as blog candy...so stay tuned.
THANK YOU to all of my sweet readers! I am so glad I have gotten to know some of you and I have lots of fun plans for 2008.

Happy NEW YEAR!!!!
