Spotlight on our Stamp Fever Customers: Robin

We love it when our customers share their projects with us so we were really happy when Robin visited the store this week. She had a few of her cute Valentine's Day treats to show us.

It was just a typical day at Stamp Fever, friends talking about their stamping projects....

Robin, Lynette (design team member), Linda (store manager) and Norma

....when Robin shared some of her creative Valentine projects:

With some stamping, pretty paper, die cuts and punches Robin made her candy Valentine treats something really special! She cleverly disguised a box of Tic-Tacs with die cut polka dotted paper and ribbon.

Here's Robin with her creative treat packaging:

Thanks for sharing with us, Robin!

Do you still have some Christmas stamps on your desk?

Don't put them away just yet....at least not until you see this!!

Our Stamp Fever Design Team member, Katie Koenig, used the Hero Arts Flourish Ornament stamp in a very unique way.

Here's the stamp:

And here's Katie's brilliant card:

We just love how she silver embossed the ornaments and used them to make the scalloped border!! With some pretty background stamping and a bit of ribbon and twine Katie created a beautiful and unique thank you card. For more of Katie's ideas visit her blog, Katie's Quarks.

Are you looking at your Christmas stamps a bit differently yet?
