do your skittles want to kick it up a notch???? plus a stamp sneak peak mojo style!

blog tag

hi all!  i have a couple new things to show y’all today that I am really excited about and i hope you will be too.  first up skittles!  if you are from the cricut board then you know what skittles are – if not then you may know them by another name – dew drops being the most popular.  Not sure why they are called skittles?  you can read that story over on Catherine’s blog.

After many months of searching and researching I fianlly have some GLITTERED skittles ready to come play at YOUR house with more colors on the way!  I am very ecited about these as i think they are such a perfect little embellishment and just really pretty – i mean a little glitter makes ANYTHING better right!

these yummy little guys come in two sizes – 4mm and 3mm.  additional colors on their way – yellow, orange, pink, red, clear, grass green and chocolate.  they are all available to order now – blue, purple and spring green are in stock now with the rest expected to arrive by mid-June!

here they are “in action”

But wait there’s more!  (ROTFL – i love that part of those types of commercials).  I have also been working diligently on some other fun skittle ideas and have these for y’all:

YEP!  Those gorgeous pink skittles have tiny watermelons on them!!!  Watermelons that match our little Picinicin’ Bee stamp perfectly!  (This is also the same color pink that you can get unprinted with glitter).  Future stamp sets will have matching skittles as well.

What else do I have for you today?  How about a whole new idea for stamp sets – My mom has designed more than a dozen stamps that fit inside the various nestibility shapes! 


I used this weeks Mojo Monday sketch for the sample:



I chose to work with this design first because it is done using the pattern she designed and hand painted for my entire set of wedding china (awwwwww). here is the stamp set itself:


Nestie Blackberries 2 WM small

I added the tiny one after i made the card because my sentiment panel looked so nekkid! 

And GUESS WHAT – you can purchase the digi version of this stamp FOR ONE WEEK ONLY so you can play with it and tell me what you think!  Everyone who orders the digi version will be entered into a drawing to win the rubber one!

Here is a close up:


The rubber version will be joined by several other really fun stamps – be sure to tune in tomorrow to see some quick peeks – i am going about this the opposite way this time – rather than make you wait and go silly with wondering what they could be i am going to show you and see what you think 🙂  we have two friends joinging the picnicin’ bee as well as two new princesses to join princess cleo!

I really hope you can take a moment to let me know what you think – it means the world to me to hear all of your thoughts!
