myStampBOX: 30 Lashes

As we braced for the impact of yet ANOTHER snow day today, I thought I'd share some photos from a much warmer time. Here's a layout whose title was born right at the pool. I snuck in some Mini Alpha stamps from myStampBOX that fit perfectly in my mixed-font title. Hope you're hanging in there this winter!

myStamp BOX Blog

To be eligible to be our random stamp winner, you must visit each of the designers blogs listed above and leave on comment on their Love Train post. Once you have visited and commented on each person’s blog you can return to the myStamp BOX blog and leave one final comment to let us know what your favourite stop along your train trip was.

Here's my Love Train card. I stamped the sentiment using the Whatever! set of stamps that is packed with witty and clever phrases. (Click on the photos for a closer look.)

I also tried a new technique. I used the heart from one of our new winter CHA releases called Back to the Basics. I stamped it right onto an embossing folder and ran white cardstock through my die cutting machine. The inked heart image showed up on the cardstock wherever it touched the embossing folder surface. I love the effect!

Thanks for joining us on your journey. Don’t forget to leave a comment below to be eligible for a prize! Now on to the next station….your next stop is my dear stamping friend Maryfrances.

Core'dinations Feature!

I finally decided to quit hoarding all the specialty sheets of Core'dinations cardstock that I have and started using them on projects. I seriously love them! Today two of my projects are featured on the Core'dinations blog. Come take a look!
