Card Swap Sunday! Carousel Birthday Stamp Set

Carousel Birthday Stamp Set 1 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

When I was in Toronto at Stampin' Up!'s OnStage event I was able to spend some time with the amazing Brenda Montesano and she kindly gave me this amazing WOW swap she had made using the Carousel Birthday Stamp Set.  It truly would take your breath away in person.

Each side has a little carousel horse inside the oval frame.  As you turn it you see a different horse on each side - it truly looks like a carousel turning around.

I tried to take a picture of the inside so you could see how Brenda constructed the card.  And did I mention she made 15 of these and each element is fussy cut.  Just amazing! I'm so honoured that she gifted me one of her creations.

You can lay it flat for mailing in a regular envelope too!

So now for the bad news...this set is in the Occasions catalogue and it's retiring on May 31st.  You can still purchase it if you do so by May 22nd, after that date there is no guarantee it will still be available.

The Cupcakes & Carousels Suite or products from the Occasions Catalogue coordinates beautifully together.  Here are the products available but remember that the accessories (non stamps) will only be available while supplies last.

Border Buddy Saturday - High Tide Stamp Set

BB High Tide Stamp Set 1 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

It's Border Buddy Saturday and it's Alison here today.  Patsy and I give away free cards every single month and today I'm sharing one of those cards with you!  Let me give you a little background on our Free Card Program.  Each month we choose two stamp sets and we each make 2 cards with each set.  Then we prepare an 8 page PDF with all the instructions, measurements and supplies and give it as a thank you gift to our customers who purchase through our online stores.  That's all you have to do - place any size order through our store.  It gets better....when that order is $50 or more we send you two of the cards in the mail! My customers love receiving the cards each month.

This month one of our stamp sets is High Tide and I'm so thrilled it's going to be in the next Annual Catalogue so you can use the PDF in the future too.  This card uses a fabulous designer paper stack called Serene Scenery and it had some fabulous designs including this one that looked like the shore and ocean.  Sadly it's retired and has already sold out.  You could create a similar look with a watercolour wash technique.

The lighthouse is a two step technique where you use two images, one on top of the other, to create a multi coloured final image.  In Vancouver we have many lighthouses because we are on the water and so I have a natural love for them.  I stamped the lighthouse and then stamped the sentiment on top.

These cars were created by the talented concept artists at Stampin' Up!  You can make any colour lighthouse using the two step method and add all the other elements easily because the stamps are photopolymer and you can see right where to place them.
