Guest Designer {Tiffany Pastor} + Stamp Giveaway!

A Big Welcome to our Guest Designer:  Tiffany Pastor!


~*~*~*~*~*~

Hello Everyone!

I am so honored to be the guest designer on the Cruise and Crop blog this week! Gail and Cheri, the Cruise and Crop gals, are my mother-in-law and sister-in-law. And I must give props to Cheri, because without her encouragement, I would not even be designing stamps right now. It was her sweet nudge that prompted me to speak with Nichole Heady when we were all on a Stamping Cruise together... and well, now it is several years later and I am thrilled to be a part of such a talented team at Papertrey Ink.

The cards featured today showcase my new stamp release, "Snowflake Medley".

>> "Snowflake Medley" releases on Sept. 15 at the Papertrey Ink online store for only $15!!

>> AND, don't forget there is a set of coordinating dies you will definitely want to get. These dies can be used on your cuddle bug, or other die cutting machine. 



The Winter Wishes card features a sentiment from my stamp set: "Winter Cheer" which coordinates perfectly with the "Snowflake Medley" set. 




For the second card, I grabbed some glue and did a little free hand flourish action and doused it with the Martha Stewart glitter. The sentiment was created on my computer. (Question: would anyone like to see this sentiment in a stamp?? Just curious if you like it!) I love the simplicity of this card. It's perfect for a quick little hostess gift, or teacher gifts you want to mass produce.




Both cards feature the PTI Perfect Match Colors: Ocean Tides and Pure Poppy. 

TIME FOR A PRIZE!!!
Leave a comment on today's blog and ONE LUCKY WINNER will receive TWO STAMP SETS! Yep! You heard me right! The winner will receive: "Nativity Silhouettes" and "Nativity Silhouettes Additions". This distressed Christmas set works perfectly with the "Snowflake Medley" stamp set. Post a comment by the end of the day Sunday, Sept 16... and the WINNER will be announced on Monday.

Take Care and have a day worth remembering!

Love Tiffany

  6. I really like how you used red as the accent color....so many times with snowflakes, I just stick to blues, purples, gold & silver....but the red really made it pop!
