OWH & Stampers Best

Hello there! I wanted to take a moment to tell you about some awesome stamps I received recently. As a card maker for Operation Write Home, I support the businesses that support this wonderful cause! You can find their sponsors here. Some offer discounts and others send a donation for every OWH sponsored product purchased.
Stampers Best donates $1 for every OWH fundraiser stamp sold! There are about 23 options for OWH products but I had to stay within my budget. lol

This is Ciara ~ Sandy's (president of OWH) sweet dog who makes an appearance from time to time during the Thursday evening live webcast on You Tube. 
I used Core'dinations cardstock from The Chocolate Box and White Wash Collection.
I have seen so many cute cards made with the negative space created from die cuts. This one is Spellbinders Labels One. I love this framed look. I will be using this technique more often.
 The paws and bones are from my stash. I think they came from Hobby Lobby. The sentiment is from Hero Arts (also an OWH fundraiser) Happy Birthday stamp set and embossed with cream colored powder. I learned (by watching Sandy's tutorials) that it's best not to stamp directly on the card to avoid any mishaps. The preferred method is to stamp on a separate piece of paper and layer it to help it really stand out. Another great use for all those scraps!  This paper was such a beautiful brown and the space was limited so I took a chance.  
 I added some paw print stickers from Stickopotamus to the inside of the card.
Here is my happy mail from Stampers Best!
I have only used Ciara and the tree but I must say.....these are quality stamps that produce beautiful images. I will be using these a lot! I just wish I had more crafty time and less worky time. LOL Stampers Best also has some really cute digital images for those of you that want to start creating immediately! I would love to see what you create with your SB products! I am always looking for inspiration. Visit their Pinterest Board to see some fabulous projects they have created!
