Recently Released—Best of 25 Years Set For May!
Judging by the reaction of my Best of 25 Years club members, the recently released Best of Brides & Babies stamp set is definitely a favorite!
The Best of Brides & Babies set is available in clear-mount only (#133482) for $14.95 from now until April 30, 2014. The anniversary image with the two birds is a brand new image, and all of the other images are popular designs from the past 25 years.

Hi Stamping Friends!
This is going to be a busy, busy week in the Too Cool Stamping Studio! Woohoo!
I'm currently getting ready for a special event on Wednesday with Big Brothers, Big Sisters where we'll be creating brag books, purses and butterfly magnets with about 30 bigs and littles. That should be so much fun!
Then, my Wow Techniques Class is coming up this Friday, May 10, at 6:30pm. We'll be fashion designing with the Dress Up Framelits and Pop 'n Cuts Die, plus we'll make a Soda Pop Top project, too! You're gonna love this one!
Plus, I'll be playing with some of my new catalog goodies, planning my Best of Brides & Babies club cards, and designing a project for our Too Cool Demo Team Shoebox Swap next Monday. Whew! Bring on the creativity! I love it!
What does any of that have to do with today's projects? Absolutely nothing!!! Haha!
If you're looking for a versatile stamp set, I highly recommend Oh, Hello from the Spring Catalog! It amazes me how many different looks you can get from all of the clever, coordinating images and sentiments!
Today's projects feature the patterned chevrons, but I showed a totally different floral look just a few days ago.
I created these two cool cards back when I thought we would be retiring all of the 2011 In Colors, but now we are just saying goodbye to Lucky Limeade. Thank goodness! I love the combination of that green with Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Wisteria Wonder.
I colored the patterned chevron image with markers directly on the rubber to stamp the pretty chevron border along the edge of a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Whisper White. You'll definitely need the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig for this one for perfectly lined up "arrows." You'll want to re-ink the image with each marker every time you stamp. It takes a bit of time, but SO worth it when you see the results!
Double-wrap Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine around the card stock and tie before adhering it to the 4" x 5-1/4" Pool Party layer and then onto the Wisteria Wonder card base.
For the sentiment, I stamped the large oval chevron patterned image in Pool Party onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock, then stamped the Wisteria Wonder words on top. I used the 1-3/4" Circle Punch to punch out the sentiment, then layered it onto a 2-3/8" Scallop Circle of Calypso Coral.
I thought it kind of looked like a flower, so of course I had to add a cute Wisteria Wonder Bitty Butterfly with a Rhiinestone Jewel accent! Butterflies make every card better!
I like the chevrons going sideways just as much! Which do you like better?
