Thoughts of NEW stamps...

Ahhhhhh, there's nothing like a terrific batch {or two!} of new stamps to make your creative dreams grow....

Mmmmmm hmmmmm! Ready for some fun!?! Check out WPLUS9's two new releases for July ~ Mehndi Medallions & Hooked On You! Both sets are LOADED with original images and super useful and fun sentiments, yet each set is uniquely styled... Brace yourself ~

I went pretty elegant with these gorgeous images from Mehndi Medallions! {Not a look I'm accustom too... hee hee} But sometimes you've got to let stamps have their way - and these are some seriously classy lil' numbers, so I just let them do their thing!

If you want to see some pretty AMAZING variety and use of Dawn's new stamps, visit her blog AND please check out how the other DT members have made their own unique creative magic with these darlings!



And, if you haven't treated yourself to the past few days of Dawn's delightful collection of pre-release inspiration, I hope you'll give yourself some time to explore and delight in her vision and design expertise! She's not only one heck of a talented Graphic and Stamp Designer, Business Owner, Wife, MOM and sweet friend, but I'll always recall her as the gal who quietly won MANY challenges and befriended me with the kindest comments and truly artistic feedback and vocabulary, back when the blog world was NEW (to me!).... So, I've been a huge fan for a while! Additionally, through the Design Team experience, I'm getting to know some of the other gals, and in particular, the LOVELY and talented Kerrianne, who is ALSO a professional graphic designer AND she is the artist behind Hooked On You!!! Check out Kerrianne's blog~ she's got some prizes and super-terrific inspiration of her own, so I know you'll be glad you dropped by!

I'm so excited for Kerrianne and her very first stamp set! I hope you'll check back with me tomorrow as I "cast out" a lil' keeper I crafted with Hooked On You! {SOOOOO much fun!}

Thanks for stopping by!

WOW! (I am screaming this on top of my voice, my cat almost jumped out of the window because she was startled and my little girl is looking at me with big asking eyes - ok, now she spotted the pic of your mamacow and she is distracted) I love your gorgeous, stunning card!! Fabulous!

This is a switch from your usual style of cardmaking, but you did one fabulous job on this elegant beauty! Every detail is perfection I tell ya!! I love the beautiful medallion and how you stamped it and layered it to perfectly match the DP. I absolutely LOVE how you split the sentiment into 2 panels and offset one off the edge! What a great look. You should try this style more often - it really looks good on you :)

Oh Elise, it is humanly impossible for a person to be a sweet and thoughtful as you are! That's it, I knew are an angel, it's the only explanation. ;o)

I always adore your fun artsy creations, but I was also delighted to see step out of your comfort zone. And pretty damn good at it too!
