Market Street Stamps Designer Showcase!!!

It's time, it's time!  Let's get started with some fun cards using Market Street Stamps that were just released this week!  Did you miss the November Release?  You can see and buy all EIGHT new
sets------------>>>HERE.

First I want to share a card with my newest *favorite* background stamp:  Grace.  Oh. My. Goodness.  The detail in this stamp is absolutely incredible.  I paired it up with a sentiment and a tiny heart from the stamp set:  Follow Your Heart, to make a Valentine card for someone special.



With a little machine stitching and some crochet trim, this is all this card needed.  That gorgeous background just steals the show.  Here are some more photos of that detailed design on the background.





Next up is this cutie.  I like dogs and we have a sweet Fox Terrier but I'm telling you that my "likeness" for dogs is NOTHING in comparison to my Clinical Coordinator (my boss) at work.  We're talking a dog bedroom with a closet full of clothes, daybed, wooden stairs to get into daybed, beautiful dog dishes and bowls, and I could go on and on.  But instead, I will share the card I made for her for Christmas this year using Pawprints on our Hearts.



I love this sweet little dog image however I'm not happy with my coloring skills.  I colored him in with various Copics and I even gave him a shiny nose using Glossy Accents!  The sentiment is from another new set called Cool Cats.  What's great about these two sets is that there is so much that you can mix and match!  Love that!

I will be sharing more using the new stamps during this next week as there is a fun Blog Hop on Tuesday and the next Paint the Town challenge is on Wednesday!  But what can YOU do in the meantime???  Make a card, altered art, WHATEVER.........but we want to see you use some Market Street Stamps and link them up for our Block Party that ends tomorrow night!  You can find the information HERE and there is a prize to win and a Guest Design Team spot for January! 

P.S.  Don't forget that all the new release stamps are on sale for a whole week!!  :)

That first card is so gorgeously elegant...
LOVE the colors and that background...
eeekkkk!!!
Stunning!
And I'm not big into animals...
but your 2nd one...
Amy it is perfect!
Especially for an animal lover!
I won't use many of the sentiments...
but considering the cat and dog set because those puppies and kitties would be perfect on cards for kids...
or animal lovers!
They are both fabulous cards...
and I think your coloring is great;)
