{DAY FOUR} January Stamp Release Hop - Winged Things by Shirley

Hey there, STAMPlorations friends! Welcome to DAY 4 of the January Stamp Release Week! We have FOUR brand spankin' new stamp sets this month -- brought to you by four designers: Becca, Deepti, Shirley, and me, Shery.

We featured Becca and her Reindeer Games stamp set in our DAY 1 postDeepti's New Beginning stamp set in our DAY 2 post, and my Big Greetings stamp set in our DAY 3 post. Today we're featuring WINGED THINGS by Shirley done in her whimsical doodle style. The set has butterflies and dragonflies in various sizes. What's great about this set is that you can create cards (and other paper crafts) in various style -- CAS, mixed media, and everything in between -- using the images and then pair them with practically any sentiment.


And here are cards Shirley made with her stamps!

Want to win the Winged Things tamp set? Simply leave a comment on this post and on Shirley's blog between now and Tuesday, January 19, 11:55 p.m. Pacific (GMT-8). Only one comment per blog, please. We'll announce the winners on Thursday, January 21, right here on the blog. Become a follower of our blog or follow us by email to receive updates when we post something here. How easy is that?

Check back again tomorrow for the final day -- the week has flown by, hasn't it? The STAMPlorations girls in the Inspiration team have LOADS of cards featuring all of the new stamps -- you'll be inspired...guaranteed!

  9. Oh I'm delighted - dragonflies - yeah and then a butterfly to be with them - doesn't get any better than that!! My fav card Shirley but they are all so wonderful to see. What a fun set. j.

  10. Would I totally sound weird if I admitted to loving dragonflies? I love when they 'hitchhike' a ride on the edge of my cap while fishing; that they never mind at all if you go about your business while they have a rest on your shoulder ... would LOve to have this set, Ms. Shirley! You do know that we also hatch dozens of butterflies, right? Weird, I know...
