Sweet Spotlight: Annette Allen

REMINDER - We're out of the office starting April 26th and we'll be shipping orders again starting on May 6th. So, if you place an order between now and May 5th --- know that it will ship on May 6th. As a way to make up for our little delay - enjoy 20% off the WHOLE shop! (yep, even the new paper stuff). Enjoy!


Annette is back with us today showing off two fun cards using the new Cityscape stamp set.

I stamped two of the buildings with Memento rose bud ink, trimmed and added some fun May Arts burlap jute string. I thought it would be fun to stamp on the veneer talking bubble and really love how it turned out. Needless to say it is my new favorite thing. I also added a couple of the Studio Calico potty people. This card was fun to make.

I stamped three sets of the city scene and outlined in color. I wanted the color to come across as a reflection of the fireworks. I added dimension to the city to create a New York themed card. This is how I imagine a big city New Year's Celebration. I added a little stickles for some shine.

You only have until Sunday to take advantage of the whole store sale! We'll see you back here on Monday with a full report of our vacation and lots more fun inspiration!

Happy Stamping and Happy weekend!
