Holy Cow! The Cows Are Talking!

Hello friends and Happy New Year.  I hope your holidays were very happy.  I enjoyed my holiday vacation tremendously; my sister and her family were here and we had a great time visiting and exchanging presents.

The new year brings the big CHA Creativation show where all our favorite papercrafting vendors release new products. I've heard there are some exciting new things coming, but in the meantime many companies have already released new collections and I've ordered and received a lot of new merchandise.  Stop in and see what's new and exciting!

Retiring ...

I loved being off at Christmas so much that I have decided to take Tuesdays off in addition to Sundays and Mondays.  So The Stamp Act will have the following hours:

Closed Sunday, Monday and Tuesday

Wednesday - Saturday ... open 10am to 5pm

If you need to shop before or after these hours, please contact me via email (hellopolly@aol.com) or phone (915-833-9500) and I will try to accomodate your schedule.

The Cows are Talking

Taylored Expressions stamp/die combo set called "If Cows Could Talk" is so cute and fun!  I made a series of cards using this set.  Enjoy!  Be sure to scroll through the cards to see how to make the cloud border that I used on several of the cards.

Making a Cloud Border

It's easy to make a very realistic cloud border when you use Taylored Expressions' Cloud Border die (pictured below).  You can use the die to cut a cloud border for your card, or cut a cloud border to use as a template for sponging clouds on your card. Cloudborder_3Here's a link to a video showing you exactly how to use the border.
