You are about to see some amazing stamp sets, cool projects as well as qualify to win one of THREE PRIZES! Every SECOND WEDNESDAY of the month we will be featuring our newly released stamp sets, have a blog hop and of course…. a GIVEAWAY!! I am so excited and honored to be able to share these creations with you today.

The new stamp releases are the Birthday Wishes stamp set…..

Birthday-Wishes…. and the Greetings on Go stamp set!


We are also highlighting our amazingly cute and versatile Everyday Alphabet stamp sets throughout this hop as well. On my blog, I am highlighting the Greetings on the Go and Birthday Wishes stamp sets for this blog hop.

Here is a card I have created using the Birthday Wishes stamp set.  This was a very simple and quick card. I used copic markers to color the birthday presents.

Birthday Wishes

Here is a project I have created using the Greetings on the Go stamp set. I colored both the car image and the exhaust images with copic markers. The roadway was embossed using white embossing powder.

You make my engine rev

Here are two projects I have created combining both of the newly released Birthday Wishes and Greetings on the Go stamp sets. I used copic markers as well as a spica pen for the “chrome” areas on the car.

Make a Wish

Close up make a wish wmFor this creation, I also used copic markers and a spica pen to color the truck and balloons. I embossed the roadway with the stamp from the Greetings on the Go. I punched out a hole in the front of the card so that you can see the word Celebrate from the Birthday Wishes stamp set on the inside of the card. I thought it was something a little different design not often seen to add to the card.
