Index Card "art" from Love You Lots Hostess Set
I know, I know...this is probably one of the funkiest looking hand stamped cards you have ever seen, am I right? BUT this is what is called an "index card" and it's one of the cool things that various members of the www.splitcoaststampers.com demonstrator community do for each other and for all of you stampers out there who enjoy getting ideas from the SCS gallery.
When the new catty comes out, we are all flooded with new stamp sets and can't wait to enjoy them all....BUT there is no way you can get them all (well, not realistically) so it's nice to see all of the images in the stamp set all at once. Due to copyright restrictions, it's not permitted to copy the actual stamp images to post on the splitcoast website. So many different stampers volunteer to use stamp sets they have to put together an "index card" by stamping all images from one set onto a "card" (more or less a card, anyway) so you can go back and see what images are in a particular set just by clicking on the splitcoast gallery photo. This is handy if you don't want to dredge thru every catalogue you own trying to figure out what stamp set a particular image goes with OR what image might be missing from a particular stamp set so you know what to search for, right?
So...this is my first ever attempt to make an index card...I am ashamed to say that in the 13 years I have been an SU demo this is the first one I've ever done but it was kind of fun and I am happy to be able to help out a bit! I volunteered to do this one and several others but since this is a "first time moment" for me, I thought I would share it with you guys here on my blog as well as with the folks on splitcoast. Do leave me a little "shout out" comment if you ever see it on splitcoast, ok? You can go to the general gallery and search by stamp set name OR by name of the "artist". I am known an "inkerzaway" on splitcoast if you would like to search for my paltry gallery of shared cards.
Obviously, this set is called Love You Lots and it's a hostess only set so can only be ordered with hostess dollars earned by having a Stampin' Up! party (be it a traditional in home party, a wild and crazy personal order OR asking me to set up a "hostess code" for you to send to your friends so you can have an online book party AND earn free stamps with your order! So if that's something you'd like to do, please let me know and I will be happy to set that up for you. ''
I hope you have enjoyed this little "inside peek" to how the splitcoast community works together to make life easier for stampers and I am eager to begin stamping all manner of cute little cards with these adorable critters! If you aren't already a member of the SCS community, I invite you to waste no time in checking it out at http://www.splitcoaststampers.com and see the amazing photo gallery as well as multiple fun "chat areas" to discuss anything from soup to nuts with a whole lotta stamping in between. And oh by the way, it's FREE!
