Ahhh, one of my absolute favorite Greetings Farm stamps! Tracy colored the Snuggle stamp (Hope and Grace line) so that she matched the background papers used. OK- don't bother asking where to get the bottom right hand corner paper... Tracy stamped the design herself! If you already have the new Thank You set by Hero Arts, then you have these stamps! I have that set and didn't even realize it. So I encourage you to look at some of your sets and see if there are stamps there you can use in a new way. I'm sure gonna do that! Thanks for the tip Tracy!
Snuggle stamp- The Greeting Farm
All other stamps- Hero Arts

Donna created this card using a variety of products. The background was embossed using the swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder. She then cut the blue and white cardstock from her Spellbinders nesties (label #4) in two different sizes so she could layer them. The white label #4 was embossed in silver using a flower stamp from the Friends Hero Arts set. If you look closely, you can see that she positioned the stamp so that it frames the last piece, which is an white oval embossed with the Dream sentiment stamp by Inkadinkado. The Dream stamp is part of the current promotion where you buy two Inkadinkado stamps and get one free. Lastly, the image was accented with Hero Arts crystals for an elegant look.

The store will be open on Kamehameha Day, June 11th during regular business hours.
The store will be CLOSED on Saturday, July 4th, in observance of Independence Day.
ATTENTION to those of you who got CD cases for your ANYA stamps. We are NOT encouraging you to use those with your stamps. There was an incident where, while traveling to stamp at a friend's house; it was discovered that when the CD case gets hot, the thin coating that makes the Anya stamps adhere to the acrylic block actually gets adhered to the CD case. Thus, the stamp will no longer cling to the block. When transporting your Anya stamps/craft supplies, we encourage the items to be in a temperature sensitive environment to avoid excessive heat.
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation reguarding this issue. Again, please do NOT leave ANY of your precious craft items, where they can get over-heated.
We are contacting "The Greeting Farm" to get their recommendation on proper stamp storage.

The next card was designed by Debi, our newest class instructor! She used one of the girls from the Miss Anyas set. The base of the card was cut using the Spellbinders scallop circle dies and the Anya image was mounted on Doodlebug glitter paper. Don't ya just love the contrasting colors she used?
