So very sorry it's been a while since I've been around these parts. Life has taken me for quite a ride lately, but I'm hanging on for the ride. Isn't that just what you have to do?
My sanity through it all is getting my fingers inky and playing with my stamps.
I'm excited to share this newly released set here with you today! It was a past Kit of the Month Stamp Set with Fun Stampers Journey, which means it was exclusive to only kit subscribers during that month AND remained unavailable for anyone to purchase for the next three months after that.
But, as of February 1st, it is NOW AVAILABLE to everyone!!!!
SS-0249 Dapper Birthday Stamp Set
YAY! That is super exciting because we all need more masculine options when it comes to stamping products.....especially for making birthday cards! Yes? YES!
Isn't it just FABULOUS?
Here is the super quick card that I made using this stamp set.....
You'll notice a lovely texture to the Pool Play (light blue) Cardstock. That was created by using the scoring blade and scoring vertical lines every 1/4" across the width and then turning the piece of cardstock 90 degrees and repeating the same procedure again. Such a fun and simple way to add a GREAT texture to your cards with the scoring blade that comes with the Paper Trimmer.
Here is a bit of a close-up so you can see that technique a bit better. So fun!
The other thing that I thought was super fun to incorporate into this card was to use a mustache die-cut from the Furry Mustache die-cut plate. There are multiple mustaches to choose from making the combinations you can come up with so much fun! Here is a photo of that die set.

I would definitely count this set as a 'Must-Have' Stamp Set! If you are interested in ordering you can find the set right here: Dapper Birthday Stamp Set SS-0249
