Greenhouse Garden

I just love this stamp set. It is a 2 step and you do need the stamp-n-ma-jig to use it but it is so beautiful!! My cloverbuds made this for their simple stamped item for the fair and the judges did like it!!

Our Craft Lounge Blog Candy!

Happy Thursday!!! I've been looking forward to today!! - One reason is the RELEASE of new AWESOME stamp sets from Our Craft Lounge! 31 brand new sets! I've got to play with some of these images already and am in love with them!! Another reason is that I get to give away a new set called Gingerbread Fun. I love this set for little treats but would make great cards too. Just start blog hopping to try to win one of the 31 sets to be given away today. A list of all the blogs can be found here.

Here is the image sheet to show you the stamps in the set that you can win just by leaving a comment on my blog!!

The little gingerbread boys work perfectly with my nestabilities to cut out a window on my small cookie box. I just cut down a cupcake box and it is so cute! I used stickles bought from eclecticpaperie. The nestabilites I got from Ellen Hutson store and I love them as they are so compact and that makes them easy to store and can be run through my cuttlebug or big shot!!

The paper used to make the "cookie" box is from Stampin' Up called Thoroughly Modern,and the ribbon is Chocolate Chip Taffeta ribbon from Stampin' Up.

The drawing for the stamp set will be Sunday night at 8pm. Good luck to everyone and be sure to leave a comment so that you have a chance to win.
