Exciting news: Mint Motif sneak peek is here!



The day has finally arrived for me to share my uber exciting news.  Kimberly Crawford, a brilliant cardmaker has launched her very own stamp range under the label Mint Motif and I am on the MINT MOTIF Design Team!!!!   It is thrilling to be part of a brand new venture and to work with products that are absolutely divine :)   Today the Mint Motif Design Team is giving you all a sneak peak of the very first stamps from the collection! 

On my card I used a square stamp from the set called Very Square  (I sent Kimberly an email telling her I am officially in love with this stamp - the diamond shapes coupled with a quilted look makes this a winner in my ever growing stamp collection - to give the diamond shapes a bit of dimension I hand stitched along the stamped lines with thin thread).  The sentiment is from the set Very Square Sentiments - great for so many occasions :)  The paper, The Frond Collection Pad , is from Memory Box and can be purchased from iheartpapers.com and don't you love that gorgeous neat little bow - well I made it with my brand spanking new Bow-Easy (yay I finally have my own Bow-Easy) also available for purchase from iheartpapers.com.  




Mint Motif stamps will be available for purchase exclusively through iheartpapers.com
starting on Friday May 14th which is also the day of the official launch of these beautiful stamps.  

Interested in winning some of your very own Mint Motif stamps?
Simply leave me a comment here and Kimberly Crawford will randomly select a winner from all participating blogs to win both sets!

*Kazan Clark*

Thank you so much for stopping by and remember to comment on all the designers blogs for a greater chance of winning!  Good luck & Happy Friday

Hugs
:) Kazan
