Thank you so very much close up May 7

I can finally share this most exciting news that I’ve been keeping secret for too long!! My sweet friend and amazing paper crafter, Kimberly Crawford has started her own stamp line called ……….(drum roll please!)

Mint Motif logo

Kimberly has designed the most fabulous stamps for the debut of Mint Motif that will be sold beginning Friday May 14th, exclusively at i{heart}papers.com.

What’s even more exciting is that I got to be one of the lucky few who has had a chance to create with them and come up with some very cool projects! The first of many is this card with this clever sentiment ‘Thank you so very much.’ There are two new stamps sets being released called Very Square and Very Square Sentiments. How cute is that? What I love about the sentiment stamps is that they are vertical. I have not seen that in a stamp set…ever. I just think it’s so eye catching and oh, so fun!

The second set is square backgrounds that combined with the perfect ink can make the most amazing background ‘paper look.’ On my card the largest Spellbinders Label Two die template shape is stamped with brown ink and the second Labels Two die is stamped with a different background (the dots) using a green ink. The smallest die shape has the sentiment on it and is actually pattern paper. And see that pop of pink in the flower? That’s a third background stamp that I used by stamping and then cut and embossing it. For the rest of the card, I used Pink Paislee Bayberry Cottage pattern paper.

I am honored to be among five other paper crafters who are apart of the Mint Motif Design Team and they have also created some fabulous ‘peeks!’

And just when you think it can’t get any better than that….

it does!

Kimberly will be drawing names from the comments left on each blog and that person will win their very own stamp set! You’re gonna love them!
