and here's a little peek inside...

I've seen the ebook and my favorite part is the 4 video tutorials that come with this stamping ebook. Nichol Magouirk and Ashley Cannon Newell provides some great tips which is useful to any level of stamping. I mean I've been stamping for a while and I still got some fantastic tips from them. Speaking of stamping, I'm going to share a couple of cards that I made myself with some stamping techniques...

Celebrate card- in this one, I used one single stamp. I love it when I find a great image, I can use over and over again on a project and it wouldn't seem boring. With this card, I stamped the star and sentiment image using blue ink on my white cardstock. Then I stamped the same image on a separate white cardstock, using red ink. I then punched out those shapes and then adhered them on three specific blue stars to create a visual triangle on the card.

Thanks a bunch card- Here I used a single flower stamp to create my background then I used the eraser part of my pencil to create the purple centers. This shows that you can pretty much use any object as a stamp. :)

Ok so for the fun part....
