Hello stampers and happy Wednesday to you. I am quite aware that it is already late Wednesday, but I am determined to squeeze in a blog post today. To A Wild Rose was a stamp set that I always considered to be very pretty, but I really didn’t NEED another flower set. Well. That all changed when I received this card as a swap at our Twin Teams Gathering last Thursday.
To A Wild Rose
This thirteen piece stamp set was desinged by Million Sales achieer Mary Ellen Byler and it comes as a bundle. It is a two-step DistINKtive stamp set which means it looks like you did a LOT of work to make each image. Phyllis Farandatos is the creator of this beautiful card. She uses a technique which I haven’t used in a very long time. When my bundle comes in I will make a video showing you how it is done. It is called dry embossing. Let’s take a look at her card!
Dry Embossing Detail
Here is a closeup of the card so you can see the beautiful detail of the dry embossing. Thanks so much Phyllis for your lovely card. You inspired me to purchase this bundle. I can’t wait to create with it and use it at a class. I am indeed “blessed and grateful to know you” and that is one of the sayings in this set. One of the nice things is that if you choose to purchase this bundle, you qualify for a free saleabration item. You can also put it in your starter kit OR choose it as your bonus free stamp set when you choose to get this great kit. Unlike our other kits, you can put whatever you want in the starter kit. Read more about that here.
You can see clearly how this stamp set makes you look super artistic, right? See all the variations in colour? That is simply achieved by inking up the stamp. Wow!!
Happy Mail in Canada Contest
Do you want to have a chance at winning a masculine stamp set of your choice from the mini catalog? I am hoping to surprise Gerard when he comes to Canada. He was so impressed with all the cards that you sent to me while I was in Holland that I thought it would be nice for him to get a surprise too. I will blog about your cards and you will also get a chance to win a stamp set. How much fun is that? Of course I will also do a video of him opening his cards when he comes. March 29 is the day he comes, but who is counting down the days? Please mail his card to Gerard van der Sar, c/o Jackie Bultje 81 Delaware Ave, Chatham, Ontario N7L 2W3.
Thanks so much for joining me. Did you see in yesterday’s blog post that I am giving away a Valentine’s stamp set from Paper Pumpkin? All you have to do to be entered into the contest is to comment on my blog post AND share the post to social media. If you click on the Facebook or Pinterest icon, you will be able to do just that. It is even better if you add a personal note. Thanks a lot, and good luck. I will do the draw next week Friday. Have a super day!
