March 2016 SOTM

Better late than Never ... on the last day of the month

March 2016 Stamp of the Month

Sunshine Birdies .... ooops I forgot to post this card.

CTMH Penelope & Spring Critters

Four Fun and "Cutsie" Cards 

Not normally my style of card I know, but, I just could not resist playing with this adorable stamp set. C1683 Spring Critters.  The stamp set coordinates with Z3207 Thin Cuts.  The sentiments included with the stamp set  are terrific for all sorts of occassions.

Spring Critters Card Set.
For the first two cards I decide to experiment with masking to have trios of cute little chicks and three fat frogs. The images were coloured with Water Colour Pencils and mounted on various mats using paper from the bright and cheery Penelope Paper Packet. Many people have used the Chicken and Bunny stamps for Easter Cards and there is a Happy Easter sentiment included with the set.

Three little chicks lined up and marching with a banner

Three fat Frogs arranged on top of the banner.

A cheeky trio of Foxes were fussy cut peering from their den was as cute as I could manage.  
I am still coming to terms with the "Fox Fad", and trying not to think about
the damage this introduced pest does to our native wildlife.

A bunch of bunnies up to no good!

Which Stamp Sets will be eligible for Stampaganza 2016 - the easy explanation
Personally I find the paragraphs below totally confusing.  To get the maximum benefit from this promotion. 

1.Buy 3 stamps sets that are all the same price! For example - buy 3 x stamps sets that cost $21.00 - you pay $42.00 and save $21.00.  Ordering however is very easy - just enter the product numbers and the system chooses the cheapest stamp set to be the free set which in my example is one of the three as they are all the same price.  If you would like to order more than three stamp sets, ask a friend to border three more of a different price say 3 x $27.00 each.

If you are in the slighest bit unsure please email me (see side panel) and I will talk you through the procedure. I will be setting up an Ez-Invite for on line purchases.  HOWEVER, if you live on Sydney's North Shore, make sure you check out the North Shore Crafters Group for ways to save even more and only pay $2.00 for delivery.
