March Best of 25 Years Stamp Set

Don't forget to check out the latest addition to my "Best of 25 Years Link" on the top of my blog page menu bar.  This page is updated monthly with Stampin' Up!s latest favourite stamp set release.

All the details are there for ordering these stamp sets and earning a free reward.  Just scroll down to see each month.  March's theme is flowers. 

I was really excited when I saw this release as it has two of my all time favourite stamps, the Hygeranium and Upsy Daisy. 

Check out this beautiful card set made with the Hygeranium stamp created by Christina N., Concept Artist, on Stampin' Up!s Pinterest site:

Although this picture is a tad blurry, you can see the Upsy Daisy stamp featured on the lid of this jewelry box I designed for U Stamp with Dawn series on Big Shot Projects a few years ago.  I loved blurring the image by double stamping the image.  Great technique.

LNS Spring Treasure Hunt Blog Hop

Hi Everyone.  Thanks for being so loyal and hanging in there this past two months.  I’m happy to announce I’m finally out of my blogging slump. I'm feeling better now that my six week winter cold has finally ended (fingers crossed here) and recovering from the loss of my dog Murphy. 

In fact, I'm feeling like heading back to my sadly neglected stamp room which means life is getting better. So let's get on with it by welcoming in March 1st!

Along with my new-found enthusiasm I'm also happy to announce the start of the Late Night Stamper’s Spring Treasure Hunt Blog Hop!

If you haven't played the LNS Treasure Hunt before then this is a fun opportunity for you to check out some great LNS blogs and be entered to win a grand prize of $150 in Stampin' Up! products offered by Sherrill Graff of LNS as well as a prize from me. If you've played before welcome back, I know you'll enjoy this new hunt too. What an exciting way to start the month?

Here’s how to play and the important stuff! 

  • Visit my LNS Treasure Hunt Page and search the blogs that are listed for treasure hunt clues. All participating blogs* will have a picture of the  treasure chest pictured above and a picture of their clue posted. 

  • When you've found the clue, write down what it is and which blog you found it on  
  • You’ll have from March 1st to May 12th, 2013 to collect 50 clues. 
  • Once you've collected 50 clues, email them to me.  Every correct entry I receive will be entered in Sherrill’s drawing on May 15th as well as my drawing on the same day. 
So don't delay, start blog hopping today. Contest ends May 12th at midnight PST so the winner can be announced on May 15th

*Note:  On March 1st there were only 31 LNS members registered for the bloghop, although we are anticipating more to sign up over the next week.  When I receive news of new participants I will update the Participating Blog List, so please come back and check the bottom of my list for new participants. 

So let's get things started here’s my clue: 

Clear Block Bundle  

If you stamp with clear-mount stamps, you'll need a clear block to adhere your stamps to. Stampin' Ups! blocks are a clear choice. They're made from high-quality, sturdy acrylic and these blocks can hold one stamp or multiple stamps if you want to create a collage of images.

You can save 15% when you buy clear blocks as bundles. Start with the Clear Block Starter Bundle (Item 129851 Price $26.95) which includes the most popular blocks: C, D and H. 

Or if you're like me and have to have them all, try the Clear Block Bundle which includes all of the blocks from A – I (Item #118491 Price $89.95). See PAGE 7 IDEA BOOK AND CATALOGUE for block sizes.
