What gives a stamper more pleasure than new toys to play with?
A good friend of mine is not only opening up a brand new online stamping store, TODAY, but she is introducing some special new stamps that I think you're going to love. You don't want to miss the grand opening of her new store right here at The Craft's Meow! The proud owner is none other that Lisa Hjulberg, who I met through Stampin' Sisters in Christ.
First I want to give a warm welcome to a new little girl on the block called Frieda. When I saw the stamp and heard her name I immediately had a soft spot in my heart for this little image because I had a Great Aunt Frieda while I was growing up, my dear grandmother's sister, so I just squealed when I heard that Lisa was going to call this little girl Frieda.
I have to say that coloring her was such a delight, she just came to life on my stamp table one little bit at a time. Not to mention that I gave a shot at coloring skin tones and hair with my copics for the very first time instead of running back to my prismacolor pencils. There are three sets with Frieda being introduced at this grand opening, Little Frieda's Flowers and Little Frieda's Daisy (the image I used) acome with sentiments. A third is Little Frieda and Lulu. You can find them all in Lisa's new store or read more about them on her blog.
There are three other stamp sets being introduced that were designed for Lisa's new store by Claire Brennan of Waltzingmouse Stamps and each of these will come with its own paper kit! Again, for details, visit Lisa's new storefront or her blog.
There are quite a few of Lisa's friends who have created cards or projects to celebrate her grand opening. You don't want to miss the new images and the inspiration!
