Our Day FIVE Winner is: Beth Cornwall

Today is DAY SIX of my Twelve Days of Blog Candy Giveaways. Leave a comment with your first and last name, and email address, to enter. Make sure you check out the Rules in THIS POST before leaving your comment, to ensure your entry qualifies.

Today's Giveaway includes some 6"x6" swatches of Ski Slope Designer Series Paper, the Flaky Friends stamp set, and a spool of Rope Twine.

[REMEMBER: click on any photo to see it full-size.]

The photo below shows the rubber on the back of the stamps. I LOVE snowmen, and this is one of my favorite snowman sets of all time--yes, I did use it a lot. I'm just very particular about keeping my stamp sets clean. (NOTE: I'm getting tons of comments asking how I keep the wood secret is a quick coating of Loreal Clear Nail Polish on the bottom and a little ways up the two grooved sides, after I mount the stamps. It will keep most inks from staining. I also do and teach a twist-twist-tap-tap-tap method of inking, so the image surface stays flush with the ink pad, and I never rock the wood edges so they don't get in the ink pad. I have perfected this method so that I don't even have to seal the wood on the stamp set to keep it clean, but I tend to seal the wood on many of the stamps as a precautionary measure.)

To use the Stampin' Around wheel, you'll need a Stampin' Around Handle (102971, $3.95). The little rectangle gift tag image fits perfectly across the bottom of the Tag Punch (105934, $15.95), leaving room at the top to punch a hole with the 1/16" Circle Punch (101227, $8.95) and put string or twine through. The Ski Slope paper coordinates with the following colors: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Real Red, and Baja Breeze. The first three of those colors are currently available in card stock, ink, and various ribbon and embellishment product. (Baja Breeze is a retired In Color)

You can order any of the above supplies through my ONLINE STORE anytime!
