Grand Opening!! Release DAY!!!

YAY!! Today is the day! The Grand Opening of The Alley Way Stamps!
I first want to show you what I made using the "Snow Much Fun" Set.. You can get it now in the store.
For this card I paper pieced him, used a little puffy paint to add a "snow" feel, and that was it! It was so fun, fast, and easy. My favorite kind of card. If you would like more details on this card feel free to visit my personal blog.
Now for the reason why you are here.. to see the new sets..

This first stamp set I am so excited to share with you. It's official name "Kitchen Gadgets." Yep, very fitting. I can just imagine these cuties paper pieced, with a fun retro feel, or put a smiley face on them to give it a more whimsical notion. How about using them in all black and white for a fun graphic design. (one of my favorite things to do is pop one out with color) I love Punny sentiments.. so I couldn't not have them on this set!
Ahh.. Snowmen.. Who doesn't love them? I love everything about the cold snow people. This adorable set is called "Snow Much Fun." And I think it is going to be just that, FUN! You design and create your snowman to look just how you want him. Of course you can't have a snowman without a bucket of snowballs... and what if he were selling them for 5 cents each? He also has to have a birdie friend to keep him company!


I just love this set! This set is called "Priceless Joy" To me it screams fun, cute, whimsy inspiration. I can just imagine these cute little images on a fun scene, or how about on a baby onesie;) I can't wait to see these paper pieced or colored up..
Our last set for this month is called "Jibber Jabber," and it is just that.. a bunch of sentiments, or jibber jabber :) I have added a few extra little accents here and there and these are all mix and match words.. What about making the sentiment "thinking of you" but instead of doing them all in one color, take the "you" and make it a different one so it really stands out :) How fun!


Now that you have seen the new lines how would you like a chance to win one of these sets? I will draw 2 winners to receive a random stamp set from this release. All you have to do is leave a comment telling us what is your favorite stamp design from this release. :) Good luck
Come back tomorrow for a cute creation using one of these new stamp sets, and another chance to win some stamps!
Oh and if you haven't done it already.. you have a chance to win a TAWS set here too
HUGS
Pin It!
