Last of the Dandelion Designs Samples

Did you have a nice long weekend? Just wanted to share the last of the Dandelion Designs samples that were sent with our order. Jean comes up with the neatest projects and need to be showcased! Here she used the new Friends cling stamp (which is my favorite!) and made some shoji (is that how you spell it?) doors on her card...

Aaww- isn't that cute? When you open the doors, it reveals the two girls inside. It reminds me of me and my sister. I just love how they are holding hands too! These sets are selling like hotcakes, so if you want one, better stop in soon.

Dandelion Hello Set Sample

Hi- hoping you are enjoying your nice long weekend! Just wanted to share another Dandelion Designs Cling set and project instructions that come with the Hello set. This project is actually a gift box that can hold cash or a thin chocolate bar (Hershey's works well). It may appear like a plain box in this first photo, but check out the second photo...

Ta daaaaa! Isn't it cute? The hedgehog pops out after you open up the box. Love it! He's even holding a chocolate bar if you want to include chocolate!

Dandelion Fun Trip Sample

Hi! Back again with another Dandelion Designs Sample from the new Fun Trip cling set. This set is perfect for little boys or anyone going on vacation. Wouldn't it be fun to use this set to give the kiddies some fun vacation $$ before a trip? That's what I'm probably gonna use it for. And as usual, Dandelion included a cool project sheet that works well with these images. Check it out...

Woah... What happened to the doggie? I think his plan wants to take off already! This mechanism is controlled by that red tab at the bottom right corner. Neat huh? These sets are selling out fast, so stop in to see this and the rest of the samples.

Dandelion Sunny Days Cling Set Project

As promised, here's the sample that came with our last shipment of Dandelion Designs stamps. Isn't she so cute?

When you first see the beach chair stamp, its hard to imagine what you can do with it... take a look at the next photo for a pop-up idea...

Isn't that so cool? Love how she's able to sit in her beach chair while being served some lemonade. Stop in for a better look at this cool card- remember that the instructions on how to make this card comes with it!
