Something Special to Share....and a GIVEAWAY


     Today Paper Smooches releases their newest set called "Summer Groves," and I was asked to help promote this sweet set! This is the eighth stamp set from their "Kismet collection". 
     What I love about this set is the variety of large and small stamps, so you can make all sorts of fun projects with them. I'm so excited to share a couple of cards that I made with this totally ADORABLE set using both the large and small images.


I like stamping with paint! It's the perfect summer combo!

 I thought that stamping the tree with paint would be a fun idea! So, I turned the stamp upside down, added paint and then stamped on cardstock. Afterwards, I stamped the tree lines over the paint to add details. I then stamped the trunk on patterned paper and fussy cut the tree trunk, popping it up with foam tape. The sky was sponged with some blue ink and I added some natural twine for texture.

This card uses the stamping with paint technique as well, but with the "Summer Grooves"
set's smaller stamps.

I painted the back of each of the little floral stamps and then stamped over the dry image with dye ink.

  I have one "Summer Groves" stamp set to give away to one lucky person!  You have until midnight on June 17th to leave a comment. However, I will not be able to post the winner until I return from vacation on Thursday, June 21st so make sure to check back then!!
