Today is also another Stamp and Create Product Spotlight.  This week's Product Spotlight is My Heart Stamps for you!!  All these images will be on sale for 25% off.  If you want these stamps, now is the time to get them at cheaper prices.  After the stock on these stamps are out, Lacey will no longer be carrying them at Stamp and Create store, so the sale is on for this week or until supplies last, whatever comes first.

Today I created a shaker card using the Puddle Duckie (My Heart Stamps for you) image from Stamp and Create.  This particular stamp is now out of stock, but there are several more images with ducks similar to this one.

I challenged myself to create an all white card with only color on the image.  I added stitching, tear drop embroidered white lace, and kaiser craft "snow" pearls.  The bottom is punched with a Martha Stewart border punch but it is hidden by the lace a bit.  The background is embossed with the perfect perennials die from Cuttlebug.

For more inspiration using the My Heart Stamps for you stamps available at Stamp and Create for 25% off, please visit my talented dt sisters:  Joy, Lacey, Heidi, Vicky and  Jeanette.
