NEW RELEASES, BLOG HOP and GIVEAWAY!!!

Good Morning!

To see the winner post, please go here
Thank you for visiting! First, I want to apologize for the red ink. I have tried to correct it and blogger is just not having it so I guess it's going to be a bright post today! The link colors are also different so we will just call that creativity on bloggers part.... LOL!!! (update: It's not red anymore.. it looks gray! LOL Who knows what color it will be by the end of the day! LOL How creative of blogger!!!)

If you have just happened to come by to visit, we would LOVE for you to hop along on the blog hop! There are FIVE PRIZES UP FOR GRABS! Please start with Leticia so that you can enjoy the entire hop to see the Design Teams (DT) awesome creativity and projects. Below

I am so excited to be able to share the new stamp releases and some creations with you today. 

There are SIX, YES, SIX stamp sets that are being released today! They are


Be sure to check out the website to read the descriptions of the stamp sets. They can be quite comical and touching. Now for the fun stuff! Boy, are you in for a treat! On this blog post, you will see  creations made by Sharon on our Design Team and me. The stamp designs above that you will also see featured in project have been created by Me. My amazing Design Team members have created some AWESOME projects for you to see.


Please be sure to hop along to each participant and answer the question correctly that they have posted for this hop. If you do, you will be entered to win one of FIVE prizes. You can win the Tie Dye and Splatter stamp set, the COMPLETE two piece set of the Everyday Alphabet stamp set, the COMPLETE two piece set of the Everyday Outline Alphabet stamp set and two adhesive prize packages from Scrapbook Adhesives! 


These two beautiful creations were made by Sharon on our DT. She used the Everyday Alphabet Outline Upper and Lower Case stamp set. Not only can you stamp them with any color and get a wonderful look, you could also color them in for a different look! Aren't these creations ADORABLE! Sharon did a wonderful job!

I made this creation using the Wedding and Celebrations stamp set. I stamped the outside of the card front with the various hearts in the set with silver ink. I don't know about you but if you have ever used silver ink on black card stock, it can be challenging as it likes to smear even when you THINK it's dry. I was pleasantly surprised how the background design came out. I then stamped the white piece of paper with the Celebrate sentiment. I love the fancy font as well and I hope you do too!
This creation was made by Sharon using the Tie Dye and Splatter stamp set. I LOVE THIS LAYOUT! Her daughter had her birthday party at a paint ball park. This stamp set COULDN'T BE MORE PERFECT FOR THIS!! I love the colors she chose and how the colors in the pictures are pulled out with her choice of colors. This looks like it was a FUN PARTY!
These creations I made with the Tie Dye and Splatter stamp set.  A few of these have already been posted as a sneak peek but I thought I would post them again in case you missed them!

 This one is a new one! I used both elements of the Tie Dye and Splatter set. Not only the Tie Dye stamps but the splatter stamps too! I love how they work so well together and apart!
In order to participate for the giveaway,  you must answer the question on each blog in the blog hop. Here is my question:
