Sweeeeet!


Hello, friends! I am so excited to share that I am now on the Sweet Stamp Shop design team! Sweet Stamp Shop is a brand new company specializing in sweet, hand drawn designs by owner Nicole Rixon.

I was surprised when I received an email from Nicole, offering me a spot on her inaugural design team. After seeing her designs, I couldn't refuse!

And I was so lucky to meet Nicole and her husband, Jacob, when they arrived in the islands on a recent vacation and she hand delivered my stamps. How's that for service? Go here to read more on when we met, and meet team member Geny, too!




For my first card as a design team member, I chose  "Melvin and Vernie"--a fun set with a couple of sweet owls and extras, and some punny sentiments, too.












Here's my card. I stamped the woodgrain background with this Hero Arts stamp, then stamped and colored Melvin and some leaves with Copics, and attached them with dimensional adhesive.


I stamped the sentiment, drew some faux stitching lines and the card was done. Super simple, and isn't he sweet? 

Want a chance to win this Melvin and Vernie stamp set? Then go here and leave a comment and Nicole will have a random drawing on August 4th. There are seven other stamp sets up for grabs, so make sure you visit each post and leave comments there, too.

Visit Sweet Stamp Shop all this week to meet the other members of the design team, and be sure to join us on August 5th for our first blog hop. There's an amazing, all-star line up of guest designers, and we'd love for you to hop along with us! Also, follow us on Twitter and "like" us on Facebook, so you won't miss out on all the sweetness!

Thanks for visiting today....Have a sweet week!

Stamps: Sweet Stamp Shop, Hero Arts
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink, Paper Accents
Ink: Memento, Ranger distress inks
Other: Copics, dimensional adhesive, Prismacolor pencil
