PCS August Release Blog Hop

Happy HUMP DAY everyone, and welcome to the Pretty Cute Stamps August 2014 Release Blog Hop. YAY! My wonderful Design Team and I have some super fun projects to show you today that we created using the very newest PCS stamps.

But first, I want to show you all of the new stamps you can purchase now in the Pretty Cute Stamps Store. Oh, and, most importantly...all of the stamps (even the bundle) are on sale until 11:59 EST on Tuesday, August 26. Woo HOO! Anyway...here they are. You can click on each of the photos to see these in the PCS Store:







Oh, and here's some more exciting news! SVG Outlines for the images on each of these new sets are now available in the store. So, if you're not one who likes fussy-cutting around images and has access to a digital cutting machine that can use SVG files, these could be a great resource for you. I'll be working on getting SVG Outlines in the store for previous sets as soon as I can.  The stamp images are not included with these files...you need the stamp sets for those.


Okay, now...here's my project using the little Color My World set. I decided to create a sweet little gift for my daughter's 5th grade teacher.



I decided to create a simple little gift by making a cover for a box of Skittles. The cover is simply kraft cardstock that I wrapped around the box (I scored it first in the appropriate places to make folding it easier). Before I secured it with adhesive, I used the crayon stamp and some VersaMark watermark ink to create a subtle background. I colored the crayon box and crayons with my Copic markers and adhered them to the cover using foam tape. Then, I stamped the fun sentiment from the same Color My World set on a speech bubble that I had left over from another project. I added a pretty ribbon and some doodles, and my quick teacher gift was all done.

Okay, now how about some BLOG CANDY????
