WPLUS9 {FABULOUS!} July Release Day 2!

Ugh! WHAT to do? WHAT in the world is a girl supposed to do
when she is TOO excited about FANTASTIC stamps? Get a life?
Get a real JOB? {Naaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwww!}

How 'bout just GETTIN' her stamp ONNN! {Gee... what to do?}

Oh, wait... I know! {Yes, THAT'S good!} I LET those puppies OUT!!!

Out of the box? Out of the PACKAGE! Oh, BABIES - these stamps are running WILD!

Did I mention that DAWN has created some of the LOVELIEST stamps - EVAAAAA?

They left me powerless. I HAD to color. I HAD to mask, and I HAD to use them literally!

ANDDDD, did I mention that this set is GORGEOUS!?! All that and WAIT
until you get
a load of the coordinating die! CHECK out more deets on Dawn's blog,
here is a rundown to peek your curiosity....

Hope Seed Co.

  • is a 6x8 clear photopolymer stamp set
  • contains 23 stamps; 4 flower images, 18 sentiment builders and 1 border frame
  • will be available for purchase July 10th for just $19

Vintage Envelope Die

  • coordinates with Hope Seed Co. stamp set
  • measures approx. 3.5" tall x 2.75" wide when folded and assembled
  • will be available for purchase July 10th for just $18

So, when I mentioned that I took this set, literally, I HAD to see if I could
make a convincing, old-school, VINTAGE feeling seed package.... I had to, ya see!

So, I'm thinkin' the masking was WORTH the effort! Do you think it looks authentic?

AUTHENTIC!?! Oh, babies - when speaking of authenticity... I THINK of these girls!


I cannot WAIT to see what THOSE W9 super stars did with THIS set! WHAT fun!

So, while I dream of all of the breathtaking ways I can use the die and
this positively CLASSIC and totally adorable set, I hope you'll check back
for the next two nights of release EXTRAVAGANZA! If you've not left
some love on Dawn's blog, DON'T FORGET! She's giving some of these
stamps AWAY! ~ Yes, GIVING them away! Just leave some love to win!

And WHILST we are on the subject, I LOVE that you stopped by!
Thanks for sharing the excitement with me - I just get swept away
with the FUN! ~ Plus, hearing from you helps me think I'm not TOO crazy!
