I have a few projects to share today, so let's get started!

I'm proud to share that I have TWO new stamp sets coming out today, Wooden It Be Nice and Chevron Chase.  They are available now in the SP & Company store!!!

How great are those chevrons??!!! And I tied that bow using my Bow E-Z.  No way could I do that on my own.  :-)

I used a sentiment from Bold Sentiments III: Birthdays (also now available in the SP & Company store) along with Chevron Chase (yes, it's a play on Chevy Chase).  This card may be clean and simple, but it's elegant!!!

I designed the chevron set with the idea in mind to make it super easy to create a large background with it.  It is SO easy to line up and stamp with multiple times.

Now, onto the next card!!!

This one showcases Wooden It Be Nice and the brand new Mix N Match Sentiments: Kids.  

Wooden It Be Nice was designed large enough to cover the whole background of a standard card, so you don't have to worry about trying to line up the stamp multiple times to create one background.  Ahhhh, soooo easy!!!

I used some flower dies I have to create the negative space and I stamped the Large Polka Dot Background onto the inside stock.  I love Mix N Match Sentiments: Kids.  There are sooo many wonderful sayings - there are enough to fit all personality types!!!

I have one more card for you today.  For this card, I've used all THREE new releases. 

I punched out the circles and stamped them (in different colors) with Wooden It Be Nice.  The butterflies were punched out of pink and have Chevron Chase on them.  That fantastic sentiment was created using Mix N Match Sentiments: Kids and little ol' Chevron Chase appears at the bottom again, to tie it all together! I used foam adhesive to give all of the circles a little dimension.  I love subtle mix of patterns on this card.

So, what do you think? I'm beyond thrilled to be able to design more stamps for SP & Company and I really love my two new sets!!!!

Make sure you check out the SP Blog to see what Samantha did with the new stamps! And don't forget to hop around to each Design Team Member's blog - there are brand new projects with the stamps that came out TODAY to inspire you!
