PCS September 2014 Release Blog Hop

Happy Wednesday, everyone, and welcome to the Pretty Cute Stamps September 2014 Release Blog Hop. YAY! My amazing 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, September 30. Woo HOO! they are. You can click on each of the photos to see these in the PCS Store:

 Fight Like a Girl  4x6" Stamp Set
***I will donate $2.00 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation for each Fight Like a Girl set sold.***

The SVG Outlines for the images on each of these new sets are also now available in the store. So, if you're not one who likes fussy-cutting around images and has access to an electronic cutting machine that can use SVG files, these could be a great resource for you. I also added outlines for some of the June and July stamp sets. I'll be working on getting SVG Outlines in the store for the rest of the previously released sets as soon as I can.  The stamp images are not included with these need the stamp sets for those. Oh, and these SVG Outlines are also ON SALE until Tuesday night, too!

Alright,'s my project using the new Candy Corn Kisses set. This set is perfect for creating sweet Halloween treats, so that's just what I created...I little box of candy corn along with a matching mini card.

I got this box from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Fancy Pillow Box 1 Cutting Files set. I embossed it using my Lifestyle Crafts Spider Web embossing folder and my Cuttlebug. I added some pretty orange and white twine to the box for a little more texture and color. I stamped my cute little candy corn guy from the Candy Corn Kisses stamp set on the SVG outline and colored him using my Copic markers. Then, I just stuck him on the box using foam tape.

For the matching card, I created a fun and colorful background using all of the different sized candy corn images that come with this set. I colored them all using my Copic markers. I just love how the background turned out! The banner is from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Sentiment Spots 3 Cutting Files set. I added a cute sentiment from the Candy Corn Kisses set along with some more candy corn images (this time with a couple of cutie patootie faces). And...that's it! Now I have a fun little treat to send to one of my daughter's friends or teachers.
