Gooooood Morning!

Before we get started with Day TWO of our stamping fun with Sweet Stamp Shop we want to share with you giveaway going on over at Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine that Core’dinations Cardstock is sponsoring. They are celebrating 10, 000 fans over at their Facebook page so head over there and make sure you “like” them for a chance to WIN!  Make sure you tell them we sent you 😉

We are here this week with some fun projects from Sweet Stamp Shop Stamps. You know the drill…comment here on the blog ALL WEEK long AND over on our FACEBOOK PAGE for the chance to win some Core goodies!!! Make sure you check out their store for  some CUTE stamps and their blog for a chance to win, too!

AND they have this cute blinkie just for you!

Today we have some cards from Design Team Members Lydia Jackson and Debbie Standard!

We cannot get enough of this little cutie! Lydia used some May Arts ribbon and a Lifestyle Crafts die to make that awesome border. The Cosmo Cricket Woodgrain cardstock looks great with the raccoon, too!

Debbie Standard this awesome card using some Gemstones (embossed beautifully for the background) and then Debbie stamped her footballs and then embossed them, too! That is our Tuesday Tip for you….you can still stamp AND emboss with your Core!

The key is to stamp FIRST, cut it out and THEN emboss the image. It makes this football much more realistic, don’t you think?

And, I have to say, that girls DO RULE!

I also wanted to post about our Colour Lover’s Monthly Inspiration. For the past few months we have issued a challenge around our Pinterest board called Colour Lover’s.
