Art 'n Soul's Inspiration Station this month features the Stamp Set "Bird Crazy" from Stamper's Anonymous' Tim Holtz Collection.

"Bird Crazy" Tim Holtz Collection

We have several of these sets available, so hurry in before they disappear!

Here's another take on this crazeee Bird Crazy stamp set that I just love. Today's card features Bird Crazy No. 6 coupled with a Penny Black sentiment stamp.

All of the cards can be viewed 'up close and personal' at Art 'n Soul . . . another excuse to stop in!

Coming to Art 'n Soul today is new washi tape from Little B, along with the nicest sticker sets from Little B. Take a look! Dianne said the very thin-width washi tape was requested the most, so with the exception of one tape, that's what this entire order is!

Those little baby booties are so darling; I'm anxious
to use the hearts for a special anniversary card and a
happy engagement card. The butterflies and hummingbirds are gorgeous.
There are more washi tapes that will be delivered to the store later this week that include beautiful spring color combinations.

Many of the Memory Box colored papers have been running out or are in short supply. Several of those will be replenished today, so be sure to check in soon for your favorite color and design. I know they are a fantastic pairing with the Rosie's Roadshow stamps that have been extremely popular at Art 'n Soul.

On the Magenta blog, I love the technique that Sherry Jackson used in stamping and embossing the new tulip stamp on vellum.

On the Dreamweaver "Dream it Up" blog, Lynell has posted two zentangle™ projects that she has submitted to a couple of challenges that she mentions in the blog post. I really like what she's done in both design and color.
