I'm not going to tell you where they are, so if you haven't found them you'll just have go back to the beginning and start hopping!

Thanks for hanging in there, now on to the fun part...the creations with these new stamps!


I have created two cards to share with you today. First up is a fun card. Here I used the new stamp "Bart's BBQ" from Crissy Armstrong and the new sentiments "Summer Letter Seals" and "The Good Life Tickets" designed by Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs. I decided this is going to be a Father's Day card for my hubby from the kids. This image of super cute Bart is pretty perfect I think!

I kept this card on the more simple side since I wanted it to be masculine. I've used some My Minds Eye papers that my lovely friend Iris sent my way. I've stitched them on the sewing machine. The image was colored with copics and also stitched. I've embellished with buttons and twine and accented with the sentiments.

Next up is a creation using just a sentiment and it's an A2 card which I don't think I have made in years! This card uses a new sentiment from the set "Thank You Tiles".

I stamped the sentiment on cream card stock with chocolate colored ink and then framed it with nesties. The papers are from my local shop, but not sure of the name. I've embellished with ribbons, a hat pin, pearls, and flowers. These new mini sweet blossoms and hat pins can be found in the Whimsy shop as well.

Guess what?! You have reached the end of the hop today and now you have a chance to enter for the grand prize blog candy! One lucky participate in our new release hop will win the goodies show below!

There are a total of 9 stamps - Summer Letter Seals, Good Life Tickets, Mailed with Love, Bling Baby, Surfer Dude, Bart's BBQ, Garden Fence, Fairy Day Dreams, and Showgirl! To win, please leave comments on all the DT blogs from the hop today and then leave your name and blog link using the linky feature below. One person will be drawn at random next Wednesday and he/she will win all of these stamps!

Good luck and thank you all so much for hopping with us today.
