something special to share - and a giveaway…

On February 15th, Paper Smooches released their newest set called "Little Fella" and I am here today to help promote this sweet set!  This is the fourth stamp set from their new "Kismet collection."  Here’s the card I made with this fun new set:

My all-time favorite technique for stamps is to paper-piece.  I stamped and embossed the frog twice, once on green patterned paper and once on yellow patterned paper (both from Bella Blvd.’s Spring Flings line).  I cut out each frog and layered the yellow crown on my little green frog prince.

Next, I used a couple of the word stamps (don’t you just love this sweet font?!?) to stamp on the tag and inside the mini card (which is attached to the main card front).

Since I have 3 little boys and a slew of nephews, I am very partial to boy-themed products…and these stamps definitely hit the mark for me !  I love the cute images included with this set (the frog is only 1 of the ELEVEN (!!!) image stamps (and there are also FOUR sentiment stamps included)…love the versatility and variety.  And just because they would work well for boys definitely doesn’t mean I won’t be using them on some girl themed projects as well…how cute would this frog be stamped on PINK chevron paper?!?

Now, Kim asked me to create ONE card to share today…but I loved the set so much, I just couldn’t help putting together another little card.

cuteasaurous_card

Cuteasaurous is right, right?!?  I just love these little dinosaurs.  I stamped and embossed them in three different colors.  After cutting them out, I added little gems to their spots.  Of course, I used my foam pop-dots (because I LOVE them) to attach the sweet dinos to this fun shaped card base (from Doodlebug).

I thought these little dinos looked like they wanted to be on parade…so I popped on some balloon brads and made the sentiment into a little flag…now they seem to be celebrating something fun (probably a certain little boy’s birthday)! ;)

I could have kept creating and sharing…but I figured you might want me to get to the good part now:

I have one "Little Fella" stamp set to give away to one lucky person!  All you need to do is leave a comment on this post – please be sure to include your e-mail address so I can contact you if you win!  You have until midnight on February 19th to leave a comment.  I will post the winner here on Monday, February 20th.
