Believe In Miracles

Welcome to the ThINKin Spot, and happy Monday to you!  I have a very special card to share with you today.  I made this card for the Sweet -n Sassy Stamps Digi Blog post today, and I wanted to share it here as well.  This card was made with digital stamps from Sweet -n Sassy Stamps, but the BIG news is that as of June 1st,  both of the stamp sets that I used for this card  (Everyday Miracles and Poppies) will be available in clear stamp form.  Yes, you heard me right.  Back by popular demand is the clear stamp line.  Now, don't get me wrong.  I love digis, but for me, there is just nothing like having that actual stamp in your hand.  I'm so excited for the return to clear stamps that I can hardly stand it!!!!!  Be sure to check the SNSS design team blogs this week for some amazing sneak peeks of  the  images to be released as clear stamps, and make sure you join us for a celebration blog hop on June 1st, as well as a release party in the SNSS Group Forum on SNR Card Universe that evening.  It'll be a party all day long, with special prizes and LOTS of fun and inspiration, so I hope to see you there!!
I created this card with K&Co. paper from the Tim Coffey collection.  I colored the poppies with my Copics, and then stamped over everything with a linen background stamp from Stampin' Up!.  The butterflies were also colored with Copics, then cut out, and dry embossed around the details on the wings to make them stand out.  I wish that showed up better in the photo, because it's a really pretty 3-D effect.  I sponged the edges of the image with some Tim Holtz distress ink in vintage photo, and finished the card off with the kraft colored taffeta ribbon. 

I'm so happy you could stop by today, because it makes my day to have you here!  I wish you a blessed day filled with lots of love and happy stamping!!

Love ya,
