Blog Candy/Gift Card Holder for Fresh Brewed Designs HOT Blog Hop!

Welcome to the July Fresh Brewed Designs Three Day HOT Blog Hop! If you are getting here from  the very lovely and talented, Catherine's blog then you are right on track. If you are just finding your way to our super HOT, fun filled, extra caffeinated, and mega sassy blog hop, then please start at the beginning here:
Freshly Brewed Challenges.

The Fresh Brewed Designs Team and Guests have put together an exciting and oh so HOT blog hop TODAY and ALL THIS WEEKEND featuring handmade cards inspired by our new released Rubber Stamps. Now you may be thinking, I have seen these before. Why, yes! Yes you have!!! But not like this!!! They have all been carefully re-sized. They are approximately 1/2 inch smaller than the original stamp, but just as sassy and hot as ever! For you, this means that more of your card will be visible so you can add your layers, embellies, use your nesties and all of that other fun stuff just a bit easier than before. The larger size is still available and still wonderful ... but now you have the option to choose which size works best for your stamping style!
All re-sized stamps are available cling mounted on 1/8 inch cling foam to use with your acrylic blocks or un-moutned. All of Fresh Brewed Designs stamps are made in the USA with deeply etched red rubber so you get a perfect impression every time! 

I made a gift card holder with
Some things Are Better Rich
This was super easy to make and I
will be sure to do a tutorial on it real soon!
This fun stamp was quick and easy to
color in with copics and it was fun to stamp
and paper piece her pink dotted towel!
This gift card holder measures 3" x 4 1/4"

I can't think of a more thoughtful gift
than to treat someone with a gift card
to a spa!  And this stamp is perfect
for personalizing your card or gift card holder.
I sure do wish that I was at a spa right now!

I'm offering a little embellishment candy for my followers
OLD and NEW!
