Follow the yellow brick road...

Hi everybody!

Today I'm jumping into the second day of previews at Sparkle Creations as a February Guest Designer with Karber Stamps! We are very excited to show you a brand new Karber Wizard of Oz set. This is a clear acrylic set with 4 images and 2 sentiments. And all of the new stamps will be available to purchase from the
SCRS store tomorrow!

As soon as I laid eyes on these sweet stamps, I knew that I wanted to make a fun matching set of little Valentines with them. Each card base is cut to 3"x4" as I wanted these to have the look of the small Valentines I remember exchanging with friends in elementary school... plus the smaller size easily makes these little characters the star of the show. The Doodlebug paper with all of the rainbows was a must to pair with them and using it with the 'yellow brick road' colored cardstock really said Oz to me. Then all I had to do was come up with some clever Valentine/Oz sentiments to go with each character and that was it!

Now be sure to visit all of the fabulous designers for more peeks of Karber's Wizard of Oz set because Sparkle will be giving away a Karber Wizard of Oz stamp set to one lucky person! For a chance to WIN, you need to comment on all of the designers' Karber Wizard of Oz blog posts (links listed below) and then leave a comment under the post over at the SCRS blog. You have until midnight EST tonight to comment.

Good luck!
