Stampaganza and Stamp of the Month Cards...



Hey Everyone,
We are so excited to share our June Stamp Special with you. Choose any 2 acrylic stamp sets and get one of equal or lesser value absolutely free!! For every 3 stamp sets you choose - you will receive 1 of them free. There is no limit to the number you can buy. Remember those cute stamp sets you love and decided you didn't need? Now is the time to buy them! Have fun shopping!  Pay close attention as you go through this post because I have a couple of tips along the way that you may not know about.  This is the exact reason that I fell in love with Close to my Heart Stamps!!!


June 1-30 is STAMPAGANZA
My Acrylix Stamps: Did You Know?



My Acrylix® stamps are clearly the best in the stamping industry, giving you incredible creative freedom loaded with possibilities. Now is a great time for a refresher on our stamps with the beginning of June’s Stampaganza campaign—it’s buy two stamps, get one free.  You will love our stamps!
Did you know that most of the CTMH stamp sets coordinate with the Cricut Art Philosophy Collection?  This layout was created with that in mind.  Pay attention the the cute butterfly in this layout.
This layout uses the Love Clusters stamp set.  Notice the picture below!
Notice the outline on the butterfly with the picture of the actual stamp set? This means that you can cut this image with your Cricut machine and the Art Philosophy Cartridge.  When cut, you have the perfect shape to stamp!  When you receive your CTMH stamp set, it will even give you the perfect size of the image to cut so that every time is perfection!

•My Acrylix stamps are ready to use right out of the package—no cutting out, mounting, or applying stickers required. Just place the stamp on your block, apply ink, and you’re set.
•My Acrylix stamps and blocks are clear, making it easy to stamp in exactly the right spot. 
 •My Acrylix stamps can be used to create a variety of popular looks, including:
  base and shade stamping

This illustration shows layering with the beautiful Rosy Regards Stamp Set.  A little tip to keep in mind is that each CTMH stamp set comes with a little foam material sheet.  You would think that this is just there to protect the delicate detail of the stamp set.  You would be half right.  Hee! Hee!  If you pull this sheet with your stamp set and put it on your table and then lay your paper material you are stamping on over it, this cushion will provide you with an even more perfect impression of the stamp!  Cool, huh?
This beautiful set has two layers.  One is the background of the rose and the other is the edge detail, so using two beautiful inks creates an amazing layered effect to the rose!
Here is a picture of this beautiful set in it's entirety.

Something else that is amazing is creating a background paper with your stamp set!
This picture shows a beautiful black detail in the background paper.  This is something else that is very simple.  Just grab a piece of 12x12 paper and start stamping in a uniform fashion.
This lovely set is a little unexpected for such a grand background paper because the stamps used are just a tiny accessory to the grand scheme of this set.  The Simple Memories Stamp Set is gorgeous, but this was actually used in the picture above!

Even the smallest stamp in any set is important!  Just look at the beautiful layout below. There is a wonderful heart border running across the top.  This was simply stamped repeatedly with the little heart from the Love Life Stamp Set.  This set also coordinates with the cartridge!
Sponging on multiple inks for single-impression, multi-color images.
This gorgeous little card uses the Quick Cards - Shell Stamp Set!

Below is an amazing layout using Family Love Stamp Set!  Can you believe it's only $6.95?
 Many My Acrylix stamps coordinate with Cricut® Art Philosophy cartridge shapes, giving you lots of creative possibilities. Cut the shape on your Cricut® machine, stamp the image on the shape, and attach to your project! In the Idea Book, the images outlined in red coordinate with Cricut® shapes.
This beautiful card uses the A Blossom Stamp Set!  This stamp set is only $6.95!

Remember to order your stamps from June 1 to 30th to take advantage of this great savings. Just click HERE to start shopping!


Oh don't forget any time you order $50 you qualify for the stamp of the month for only $5 and June has the greatest little set I am sure you will want.  Here are a few things I made with mine...  I just got out the Dotty for you Papers (April and May Special) and the CTMH AP cartridge and started cutting card shapes and playing.  I was really happy with how they all turned out and now I have a great stash of cards ready to go in the mail.
 Some, I stamped right on the paper, some I cut out and stamped.
 I used colored pencils here and there too.
 I took some of the tiny stamps and added embellishments to the round bird cuts.  I also used the little party hat and stamped and cut some with a craft knife to make little banners in the corners here and there!
 A little twine here and there adds so much too.
I hope you like the cards and get your stamp set!  This is such a fun one, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it!  If you would like to see more of my designs, hop on over to Cricut Couple and visit!  We would love to have you!

This special starts today and when you buy any two stamp sets and you get one more stamp set of your choice for FREE!  Up to a $29.95 value!

Thanks so much for visiting today!
