Note: I hate to say it, but due to unforeseen delays with suppliers of some kit components, these kits will not ship until early next week. However, since supplies are very limited and we expect to sell  out, you may place an order now to reserve yours. The store has been set to accept orders even though technically they are not completely in stock. Thank you for your patience and understanding. 

We are also allowing backorders on the stamps in the event we run short, and expect to have supplies restocked within one week. Please order early to ensure you get yours first!

We now return to our regular programming. lol

So what, might you ask, are today's prize offerings? How about:
  1. Butterfly Kisses stamp set (being showcased today)!!!
  2. Lush 2 Turquoise Prize Package from My Mind's Eye!!! Includes one each of the patterned and flocked papers shown, plus all the accessories!!! Thanks again Nick!!!
  3. Sarah's Butterfly Kisses Card Kit!!!

Once again, the prizes will be awarded based on random drawing from the comments left on THREE of the Team blogs listed below! You won't know whose blog has the prize... neither do I, actually, until I draw from a hat...so you'll want to leave a comment on each blog for more chances to win. But please play fair... only ONE comment per blog!

You have until 11:00 pm Pacific tonight (May 1st) to make the rounds! The winners will be announced here tomorrow. 

But that's not all!!! One lucky person drawn from all comments made on this blog by 11:59 pm Pacific on Tuesday, May 3rd will win the entire May 1st Release!!! Yep, that's the four stamp sets and two card kits. Yowsers!!! 


For my card I chose to stamp the butterfly fairy and butterfly image on a kraft die cut butterfly in a light brown ink, and then randomly stamped the greeting in black.  The patterned paper is by Websters Pages mounted on kraft cardstock. I created the butterflies feelers with Zva pearls, and then added a bit of zig zag stitching to the corners. Very simple! This little stamp set makes a BIG impression, don't you think?

So off you go! Enjoy your first looks at Butterfly Kisses!!! All the blog links are provided below in case there's a break along the way. Since today is a blog hop, we're not showing peeks here... you will see them all by starting with Nina's blog and then linking along from there. 

I'll also be back tomorrow with the winners selected from those who Like our Facebook Page!

Enjoy the hop. And good luck!



P.S. If you're a winner and you've already purchased the stamps or kits you won, I will refund your money or send you a second set, whichever you prefer. Oh, and when you leave a comment today, please let us know what themes/types of stamps and/or kits you'd like to see from us in the future! Thanks!

Fabulous stamp sets! These are all a keeper!

Anniebee said...

All of the stamp sets are fabulous, Lisa! Your card is beautiful. You definitely struck gold with Nina and Sarah. Now I can see why you were so excited about working with them! I'd love to see more along these same lines... something different than butterflies perhaps but just as lovely. I'm kinda sick of all the cutesy stuff I have been seeing all over the place. That's just not my style. Congratulations on this release. I've no doubt the card kits will sell out and maybe the stamps too.

This is the first time I've checked out your blog and had to do the hop! Love the new stamps but as a mom to a little girl Butterfly kisses is my favorite I love that it's perfect for little girls but isn't too cutesy!

Susan said...

A beautiful card highlighting Nina's new stamp set.
I would like to see some animal sympathy stamps.

Ren-Yi said...

what an awesome release, Lisa. so glad to see that you have done so well - and the stamps and kits looks absolutely amazing.

Ren-Yi said...

i just finished the blog hop and am stunned by all this talent! your card is absolutely lovely - like how you used the sil as a pattern and distressed the butterfly edge. as far as future products: love to see some wood chip embellies, a few metal frames in the kits, maybe masculine theme card kits, bday themed kits, just saying hi kits... :)

Meredith said...

Lisa, those stamp sets are BEAUTIFUL! Of course Sarah's kits are stunning as well. Beautiful release!!

Holly AKA KopyKat said...

Wow, I feel like I tapped into a whole new world of creativity. Love the butterfly kisses image and all the great designers projects.

Melanie said...

It's all beautiful. The vintage styled stamps are delightful - the butterfly fairy has to be my favorite, it reminds me of blowing on dandelions as a child. The card sets are amazing as is your selling them including the stamps, too often beginner stampers are lost with vintage stamps. Your design team have done you proud.

lynn said...

lisa, i simply adore this b-fly card!!

Tan E-Zen said...

Lisa, all the stamp sets are insanely awesome!! I love especially the "fly free" one as there's a vintage styled birdcage and I LOVE birdcages! All the sets are amazing and I bet they would be sold out real soon. Oh and your card is gorgeous; I really admire how you used the stamps on the butterfly. Thanks for the chance to win that generous prize!!:D

Ulina /Apricot Bubbles said...

THANKS for the opportunity to win such a gorgeous prize!!!

Bev said...

WOW Lisa, LOVE your Card. I can't really pick a Favourite set, though I am a little Partial to Birds and Birdcages at the Moment. Either way I will be Pre-Ordering them all and the Beautiful Card Kits as well. As far as New things go, It would be lovely to see something for the males in our lives big and small. I still think that there are very minimal choices out there when it comes to Male Images. I have enjoyed every minute of this release and Blog Hop and have seen much Beauty along the way. Good Luck to everyone including Myself lol of course.
Many Thanks,
Beverley
