October 2015 Stamp Release Blog Hop Day 2

TGIF, everyone! Welcome to Day 2 of the Pretty Cute Stamps October 2015 Release Blog Hop. YAY! My design team have been sharing some fun projects yesterday and today that feature the newest Pretty Cute Stamps! Be sure to go back to check out yesterday's hop so you can see all of the awesome projects.

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 new items (even the bundle) are ON SALE until 10:00 pm CST on Tuesday, October 13, 2015. Woo HOO! Anyway...here they are. You can find all of these new items in the PCS store HERE.


These first two Nativity sets are TWICE AS BIG as my regular stamp sets. YEP! 6x8"! That's the only way I could fit all of those cuties on there. And, yes, the sweet baby Jesus is a separate stamp from the stable. :)



Here are the other sets from this release:




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. The stamp images are not included with these files...you need the stamp sets for those. Oh, and these SVG Outlines are also ON SALE until Tuesday night, too!

For my hop project, I decided to create a simple little birthday card using the camel from the Nativity 2 set and a sentiment from the Leapin' Lizards set. I kept the card simple by stamping the camel on kraft cardstock. So, I just needed to color a little of her using my colored pencils and then cut her out. Then, I added a birthday hat that I trimmed off of some patterned paper I had in my stash. I finished off the CAS card by using my ruler and a pen to draw a border around the card. So, you see...the Nativity sets aren't JUST for Christmas. ;)


Now I have a freebie for you from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons. This Skating Bear Couple Cutting File will be available for FREE today only, then it will be available for purchase in the PPPR store. You can download this file by clicking on the photo below.


Okay, now how about a PRIZE????
