Some SWEET tips on adding detail without adding bulk!

Hi everybody! I’m up on the Sweet Stamp Shop blog today with some tips on making fun detailed (and mailable) cards! Here’s a peek at the card I made, featuring Sweet Stamp Shop‘s new “Royal Wish” and “Enjoy Calligraphy” sets!
While this card has a few layers, you’ll see that it’s still thin enough to mail in a regular envelope!

For the full details on how this card came together, check out my post at the Sweet Stamp Shop blog!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!


It’s a magical release at Sweet Stamp Shop!

Well, hello there! Glad you could join me for today’s new release celebration at Sweet Stamp Shop! Our July release is a MAGICAL one, and you’ll soon see why, because I have LOTS of fun stuff to share with you!  I have three cards, starting with this one, which I made with the new “Dragon” clear set:

I also used stamps from the “Cookie Sprinkles” set for the large heart, “Cheeky” for the small heart, and the “Alpha Tabs” set to stamp the custom sentiment.
For my second card, I stamped the stars from the “Enjoy Calligraphy” set with watermark ink on a piece of vellum and heat embossed the design to soften the background paper. I stamped one of the sentiments on black card stock to give it a chalkboard look. 
For my third card, I made a scene with the stars from the “Enjoy Calligraphy” and “Princess” sets, then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on vellum. 
I drew and colored a hill, then colored and fussy cut the castle to complete the scene. To help line up the castle and flags, I also stamped the castle on the background paper. That way, I didn’t have to worry about cutting the flag poles out, too!
Here’s another look at the new sets in today’s release at Sweet Stamp Shop: “Princess“, “Dragon“, “Enjoy Calligraphy” and “Royal Wish“:
AND, the new “On Cherry Street” kit is being included in today’s release celebration, too!
So, what about the new kits? Here’s some info:
  • No monthly subscription – buy only the kits you like!
  • It’s here to stay (as permanent as any other Sweet Stamp Shop product has been…and if you miss out on July’s kit, there will be more of the same kit in the store in August, along with a new monthly kit)!
  • It’s 100% made in the U.S.A.! From the wood die cuts to the clear stamps to the printed paper, everything in this kit is purchased from small businesses in the United States!
  • Every kit is filled with more than 35 pieces — from an exclusive stamp set found only in the kit, to pocket style cards and wood die cut embellishments, you’ll find so many creative possibilities with each kit!
  • The price of each kit is $15.95 — a great deal in itself!

Tomorrow, the new stamp sets will be available in the Sweet Stamp Shop for $7.95 each, and the kit will sell for $15.95.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my cards for today’s new release celebration! For more fun, join Sweet Stamp Shop on Facebook or Pinterest, and follow the Sweet Stamp Shop blog for tutorials, inspiration and MORE!
