It's Launch Day!


I'm SO excited today!! Why, you ask? It is launch day for the brand new stamp company 2 Cute Rubber Stamps, and I'm on the DT (aka The Cuties)!!! How stinkin' adorable are Heidi's first images? Be on the lookout for more, too - a little birdie told me a new line will be released in February.


Here is what you need to know right now about 2 Cute Rubber Stamps:

  • each month on the DT blog there will be a challenge and everyone who plays will be given a chance to download a free digi image!
  • the winner (who creates a card with the digi image) will get a free wood or cling mounted stamp from 2 Cute!
  • stamps are currently available in wood mounted only, but red rubber cling mounted is coming soon!
  • If you sign up as a follower of the DT blog this week, you will be in the running to win a *free* stamp from 2 Cute!
  • Heidi absolutely loves input about what people would like to see on a stamp. So feel free to leave her a comment, or leave one on the DT blog, or contact a DT member and we'll pass it along!
  • Everyday the DT blog will showcase a NEW project from a DT member. These girls are super talented, so be sure to check them out!!



Now for deets about my card. I love this Memory Box Sugar Plum dp so I wanted to be sure it played a large part on this. I chose the image because I thought it paired really well together. My owl and tree are colored with Copics, and the little guy's glasses have Ranger glossy effects on them. I hand stitched around both the image panel and the square of dp I added. On the tree I added small primas centered by dew drops, and I put some larger ones just above the image panel. Finishing it off is a piece of white organdy ribbon.

Be sure to check out the DT blog today for cards by all of The Cuties, and check their blogs as well! Links to their blogs are on the DT blog as well as on my righthand sidebar!

So sweet. I love this image. I also love how soft you made it. Hand stitching, are you crazy? You must had tremendous patience.
