March Release HERE 10 NEW SETS!!!

Yay!! it's here.. we are so excited to show you TAWS March stamps.. (We now accept CREDIT/DEBIT CARDS TOO click here to learn how) woohoo...  
before all the fun stuff.. :) I wanted to show you this..
Barb created a CAS card for us today using Chatterbox to full effect! She repeatedly stamped the "dream in COLOR" sentiment, slightly offsetting it each time. I love the subtle touch of color in the bubbles of the letters and in the skinny alcohol inked strip along the bottom edge! A perfect way to put those pretty scraps to use and to really dream in color :)


Marcy created this amazing colorful cupcake card. I love the gems, and how she made the card stand out with those fun colors :) 


NOW :) I wanted to tell you something fun we are going to be doing each month.. Each month on our Facebook page all month long, you can post pictures of your creations using your TAWS stamps or the freebies we provide.. at the end of the month one random person will be a lucky winner who will receive a stamp set of their choice. There is NO max, you can upload as many as you want!! So get creating and upload those creations!! 
For our next Surprise!! are you all ready???
This month in honor of CHA and since we didn't get to go, we wanted to have our own online CHA release with YOU!!!  So when you spend $75.00 or more in the store you get a FREE stamp set.. (all you have to do is add $75.00 worth of product in your cart, when checking out put what set you would like for free in the comment section)
Here are our sneak peeks of our stamp sets, and to tell you how it will work.. Click 
Our fun stamps for this month are..

adoraBOWL-hehe it's just that.. adorable. This is a fun retro set, that is sure to get you in the mood to have a good time. There were some of you requesting a fun bowling set, so we put our thinking caps on and came up with this. Fun 50's glasses, and sentiments to match each image.. You won't have to "SPARE" any details when you buy this set.
Chatterbox-is another fun play on words set that is perfect for merging.. This set will go perfect with any of TAWS sets you have, but will rock it with the Jibber Jabber set. We have also added some fun sentiments like BEE-tween, or BEE-cause.. so you can use it with the Priceless Joy set.. or how about Spread your "wings" and fly to go with the plane.. the options are endless.


ei-ei-o- Old McDonald did have a farm, and I bet it was something cute like this.. with a fun barn, a cute fly buzzing around, and some little animals to make sure you can put an "oink, oink, here and an oink, oink, there" this set goes perfectly with our "get moovin set"
get moovin-we had to do a fun horse and cow, we wanted to add a horseshoe, cloud, raindrop, hay, chicken scratch, and the perfect sentiments to partner up with the ei-ei-o set..

Gotta Bug?-This set is perfect to use for those people you know who need a little pick me up, feeling blue, or they have "caught a bug".. send them a jar full of warm fuzzies, or maybe you know someone who is a total "pill or Prescription" when they are sick.. there is even a little guy to help you out.. how about put one of the 3 faces on the band-aide, inside the jar, on the warm fuzzies, or on the prescription bottle. The pills come out of the jar for the popular stamp in a stamp to give you an extra added bit of fun. 

Hey Cupcake-this set is so versatile I am so excited to share it with you. Build your own cupcakes the way YOU want them, place the fun faces inside the cherries, on the cupcakes, or leave them off.. this really is a set that you get to have it YOUR way! This set also features the  popular stamp in a stamp to give you an extra added bit of fun. 

Monster Mash- I really love this set.. how fun are monsters? I love them, and to be able to make them the way you want them, is even better. Teeth, no teeth, one eye, two, or 10. How about a girl monster with a boy, this is a perfect set to make for an anniversary card, or just to tell your friend how special they are. My favorite sentiment from this set.. "My imaginary friend said you're special." hehe...

Mustache Mania-this set is near and dear to my heart.. I only have 2 pictures with  my Dad without a Mustache, I love them.. This is such a fun set with patterned mustaches, and barber shop poles.. old fashioned razors are sure to make sure you have the perfect trim.

Phraseology-I love background sets.. and what is more fun than your own WORD SEARCH.. find words like Celebrate, BFF, Laugh Often, I heart you, a note, Kiss Me, etc.. there are so many fun phrases, and words on this stamp. It will be fun to circle, chalk, or even cut out your perfect phrase and use it as a background. 

Work it Out-I don't know about you, but one of my New Year's goals is to be fit.. not skinny, just healthy.. and this set was a perfect set for me to motivate all my friends who want to do the same thing.. It's a great way to show them that you support them wanting to be healthy and fit.!


I hope you are just as excited as we are about these new sets..Come back tomorrow to see if you are one of our lucky Behind the Alley Blog hop winners :)

Day 3 Behind the Alley Sneak Peeks!!

ahh.. it's almost here. I am so excited to share with you a few more projects! :) 

Annette made this yummy card using our Hey Cupcake stamp set.. I love how she added glossy accents, and hung the bow for a banner..:) the patterned paper is so fun too..

Barb is a big animal lover, so it's only natural that our new Moovin' and ei-ei-o sets are quick additions to her TAWS favorites list! She's colored these guys with colored pencils then added lots of texture, layers and a bright distress-stained background to make everything pop. Don't you just love that woodgrain in the back, and how she used the water to make it a different texture.. :) so fun!!

Also we have a HUGE.. no wait.. a HUGE surprise coming on the 24th.. so don't forget to come back here to check it out!!! :)

I love texture, and Marcy  created this stunning card with lots of it. Using the Background Basics for the fun polka-dots, and the Talk to Me set for the sentiment she brought this card into pure harmony. Don't you just love that cardboard.. so fun and trendy.


Lisa's fun and unique card is sure to get her sentiment across. I love that she used the light lavender and then pop out one word in black. With the "love"   Jibber Jabber sentiment going every which way. Look at that dimension on that little squirrel from Crazy Critters. Just add twine and a button and you are set!

Encouraging words

I am excited so show you Annettes colorful creation using our Talk To MeCrazy Critters and Priceless Joy. I love the patterns she picked, and how she separated them using twine.. how fun right?? And of course some talking bubbles :)

You all know I love shaped cards.. Barb paper pieced an encouraging card using Crazy Critters, Talk to Me set.. Don't you just love that plaid paper with the adorable little squirrel.. those fun mushrooms give this card a woodland feel too.. and it wouldn't be complete without some twine, and  a sentiment from Kitchen Gadgets.

Color..

I love color...
Laurel created this adorable birthday card stash! I am in love with the numbers at the top and the fun colors.. For this one she has used the Crazy Critters, Talk to Me and the Snow Much Fun sets to create it.. Don't you just adore that little bird sitting on the banner at the top, and how the sentiment flies off the card.. it just screams a celebration.. :)  
Lisa's colorful card showcases Background Basics using the Chevrons and a rainbow of ink colors. Love how she masked off a border and outlined it with black pen. Her sentiment from the Jibber Jabber set takes me back to the Janet Jackson song. Oh those cute little birds from Priceless Joy are the icing on this creation. Rainbows always make me so happy, and so does this card..

Chevron fun

I just adore the way Marcy  use the chevron from the Background Basic set to make grass.. Don't you just love how she colored her little fox.. and the polka-dot sky is so fun..


Barb has created a card using the Roadway stamp from Background Basics to make this plaid patterned "fabric of love"! Navy, white and gold inks make up the pattern and a computer-generated sentiment reads like a care tag. Sweet! Head over to Barb's blog for more details.

Paper piecing!! We LOVE you..

LOVE is in the air I tell you :)

I love patterned paper.. and this cars screams it.. Annette used Talk to Me and Crazy Critters to paper piece this beautiful card together.. I love that she put the owl on the stump.. and has a bow on the talking bubble.. how fun is this..

Laurel paper pieced the Priceless Joy car. Using the  Background Basics to create the little funky cross road, then added the little clouds from the Crazy Critters set. of course she had to add a cute little banner letting everyone know that this car was "just married." how fun right :)

Talking Bubbles are in...

it's so much fun to see how these talking bubbles from Talk to Me set are being used.. Marcy created this fun mini album page celebrating a marathon rum.. the fun bright colors just bring it to life.. using some sentiments from our Crazy Critters set too

Laurel  has used  two sentiment sets (Talk to Me and Jibber Jabber) to create this quick and easy card for another little boy in her class. If you love monsters.. then wait until you see what's coming your way in March! Don't you just love the fun, bright colors..

Anyone love KRAFT.. :) ME!!

Barb has created a CAS card set for us today. She used Background Basics and Jibber Jabber. Here is one of the cards which shows the basic design...all she changed out from one card to the next was the sentiment. She used the kissing technique to apply a woodgrain pattern to the solid chevron background stamp. The whole design was highlighted with a light spray of white mist. Quick, simple and suitable for anyone at all. Visit her blog to see the rest of the set and for details about how the cards were constructed.


Lisa made a UNIQUE card using February's Crazy Critters and Talk To Me sets. Just look how that white mushroom pops on that Kraft! Lovin' those masked shrooms and white sentiment.This would be so fun to to do in a rainbow of colors too.. what a great idea..

lift off

lift off with Annette, she used the new Basic Background stamp set and created this fun runway. Using the wheel from the car in Priceless Joy.  She also used Talk to me and Crazy Critters.

Laurel used the Background Basics to create a notebook paper which when punched with a notebook punch works really well for this school themed card.  The little owl is from Crazy Critters and of course the talking bubble is from Talk to Me. I just love how she created a scene.. that red really brings this card some pop! 


don't forget our BE inspired Challenge.. top right of the blog.. also link ANY project using TAWS stamps.. as long as they have not been posted there before to our Facebook page and our Creation Blvd to be spotlighted, and win a free stamp set.. :) hope you come and play!
