{Happy Spring!} Heads Up on the Things With Wings Event + New Stamps & Dies + A Giveaway!

[Note: This post will appear on top of all other blog posts until May 7.]

Hey, STAMPlorations friends! Happy, happy spring! For some of us, spring sure dragged its heels. Here at STAMP HQ, spring has definitely arrived -- I can no longer step out of the house without my eyes watering and having a sneezing fit! (Oh yeah, and having to double up on the antihistamines!) 

So with the orange blossoms blooming around here, we have a few things cooking here on the blog.

In this post, I'm sharing a few new stamps and dies that will be available in the store starting May 1 (with the exception of a couple of stamp sets, which are already available). I'm also giving you a heads up on our upcoming Things with Wings Blog Hop and Linky Parties -- yes, parties! (You'll know when you see the graphic.)

Plus, I've got a special giveaway/blog candy for those of you who blog so make sure to read through the end of this post for all the deets :o)

Leading the pack is Shirley's brand new stamp set, Layered Butterflies. If you'd like to see these stamps in action, check out part 1 (of 3) of Shirley's spotlight projects posts. And there's no need to wait for May 1st for this one -- it's already in the store :o)

Then I recently made available to the store Hello Coffee, one of several new coffee-themed stamps...and there are a couple of dies as well. I have to tell you that I terribly miss coffee. I haven't had a single drop since I learned I was pregnant with Winter, and after I gave birth, I continue to avoid it because I don't want to pass caffeine to her. (Many sources say it's safe to drink coffee while breastfeeding but I'd rather err on the side of caution when it comes to my baby's wellbeing.) Anyway, my point? I've got plenty of coffee frustration that I simply turned to creating more coffee-themed products for ya'll -- haha! :o)

Okay, so here are the other new products arriving in the store on May 1. (Click on an image to enlarge.)
