Paper Pretties' Grand Re-opening Blog Hop!

Stamps: Paper Pretties 'What the Cluck'. Cardstock: My Mind's Eye 'Screen Door' DP, Buckaroo Blue, Soft Suede, Papertrey white. Ink: Memento black, copics, versamark. Accessories: Nestabilities rectangles, SU scallop border punch, twine, SU Riding Hood Red satin ribbon.

Welcome to Paper Pretties' Grand Re-Opening -- we're celebrating with the release of 12 fabulous new stamp sets! If you are just joining the hop, be sure to visit the Paper Pretties' blog for the full list of hop participants because you won't want to miss a single one -- there's a chance to win a free stamp set at every stop on the hop!!

If you are arriving from Pam's blog, The Stamping Addict, then you are in the right place!

The stamp set I'm showcasing today is 'What the Cluck' and not only does it come with this hilarious chicken image, but also includes six sentiments ranging from the 'Egg-cellent' I chose for this card to 'What's new at your nest?'. All stamps are printed on high-quality acrylic and come with an index label printed on a plastic sleeve for easy storage.

I will take comments until Sunday, August 15th at 6 PM CST, and then one Prettie Lucky stamper will be chosen at random to receive this set!! Can't get a better deal than that! And you can shop now without fear, if you happen to win a set you already purchased (you know you can't resist these amazing new images!), you may substitute a different set of equal or lesser value in its place.

Isn't this chicken face worth a giggle? And fun to color, too, although I could use some chicken coloring lessons because my attempts to create a Bantam look-alike resulted in something more along the lines of a turkey ...


Sketch inspiration for this card is Taylored Expression's Sketch challenge #123 with the twine filling in for one image element -- it adds to the barn feel, right?

Paper Pretties is offering several awesome grand-reopening specials:

**Every order placed during release weekend (now through Sunday, August 15th) will receive a free Paper Pretties Hand Stamped stamp!

** All orders that total $25 or more (before shipping charges are applied) will receive a free stamp set (Paper Pretties choice) in their package!

** Any orders that total $100 or more (before shipping charges are applied) will receive a free 6x6 paper pad (Paper Pretties choice) with their order!

Also, the older Paper Pretties stamps are still on sale! Up to 75% off, with many of the Sophia and Cooper sets selling for just $5! WOW!!

Since Paper Pretties is now located stateside, you can expect excellent service from dedicated owner, Heather, and fast delivery, too.

Next stop on the blog hop is Heather's 'The Best in Life'. Enjoy all the card inspiration and don't forget to leave a comment at each blog on the hop for your chance to win the featured stamp set!
