A Dandie Sneak Peek!!!

Ok, so I decided I'm not waiting until Monday - I'm going to give you all a sneak peek of one of the soon to be released sets from Artful INKables right now!

Kristin will have 5 new sets added to her web store on July 1st - so be sure to check it out - that's this coming Tuesday (can you believe it's July already!!??) - in the mean time you can look at her other sets because they are super also! There are some cute fairy stamps for all the little girls in your life and some turtles and fish for the little guys and lots more!

But I digress- we're here to see the NEW STUFF right??!!!? So here we go.
On this card I used 2 stamps of the 6 stamp set called Sunburst Dandies and the 'Feel Better Soon' is from a set called Basic Salutations which includes 18 sentiments! I love the way some of the letters are in italics - it gives it a fun look don't you think?
First I stamped the round center that's framed by clusters of dots. This can be used alone or with the petals stamp as I've done here - over stamping that in black ink. I layered it to coordinating card stock taking the colors from this beautiful designer paper by Cosmo Cricket.
I made this card for the Limited Supplies Challenge on Split Coast today - which was to use brads on your image - you couldn't use hardware, ribbons, or primas - but you could use layers.
Here is a close up where you can see the starburst stamp better. Isn't that fun?!
So tell me what you think about this quick peak into this new stamp set?? Remember to check the other designers sites - I'm not sure if they've gotten their stamp sets yet - but they'll be posting cards as soon as they do! They're listed in the right hand column.
My counter hit 20,000 yesterday thanks to you - my wonderful friends here in blog land - I really do appreciate each and every one of you that comes by - I just can't tell you how nice it makes me feel that you like to see what I do here - so I'll be posting some 'thank you' blog candy soon! Keep checking back for more sneak peeks - I have some fun things I'm working on!!
