GIVEAWAY: New Stamp Releases - Beautiful Courage & Fierce and Brave

 It's time for some happy dancing, and a stamp giveaway! My brand new set, Beautiful Courage, is being released over at STAMPlorations today! And a STUNNING set designed by Shery Russ called Fierce and Brave is also being released. Both of these sets were designed with Women's History Month in mind. 

I l-o-v-e the chic outlines and fierce phrases from the Fierce and Brave set:

I thought they could be used for all sorts of occasions - add a little ribbon and viola! a wedding card!

Collage Valentine's Day Card

Today I'm up on the STAMPlorations blog with a whole feature tutorial on how to create this collagey Valentine wonder! 

I talk all about creating a colorful decoupaged background.

Creating a grungy background using the Artsy Border Maker stamp set. 

And the perfect non-mushy sentiment and focal image using the Funny Kinda Love stamp set.

I also would be remiss if I didn't mention where I got all my lovely collage papers. My friend Lauren Bergold of all the GOOD blog names were taken gave me these awesome papers as a gift and I, of course, am in love with them. She finds the perfect old books, dictionaries, and encyclopedias and creates amazing packages of collage paper in her Etsy store.
