A Little Birdie Told Me...

that I need to remind you about some great promotions going on this month!  I have a sweet card to share with you first, of course.

I made this fun card using the Stella paper pack and this month's Stamp of the Month, Life is Tweet.  Sometimes stamped cards can feel a little flat if you aren't adding embellishments, so I have a few tricks for you!

  1. Stamp your image on the background cardstock AND on a pattern paper.  Cut the main part of the image out of the pattern paper and layer it over the stamped image on the background.
  2. Add more dimension by only adhering the centers of things like flowers and use a fingernail to curl them away from the background.
  3. Before adhering, use an X-acto knife to cut a portion of an image, like the wing of a bird, and use a fingernail to curl them up slightly.
  4. Add some small chipboard elements for added dimension.  (The hearts I used on my card come right in the Stella Workshop on the Go if you go that route.)
Now, want to get the best bargain ever on that sweet stamp set, and a few others as well?  This month is Stampaganza with Close To My Heart, which means that you get a free stamp set for every two that you buy.  Then you can get the Stamp of the Month set for only $5 when you spend $50.  So, here's a great example of the bargain you can get:

Buy 2 "D" size stamp sets for $17.95 each and get another free, buy 2 "B" size stamp sets for $9.95 and get another free, then buy the Stamp of the Month for $5.  You spend a total of  $60.80 (before tax & shipping) and you get $101.65 worth of stamps - pretty awesome, right?  If you're ready to spend a little and save a lot, head on over to the My Acrylix Stamp Sets portion of my website and start shopping! Don't forget to add the Stamp of the Month set to your cart before you check out!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope to see you again soon.
