Stampsmith Celebration With a Sale and Prizes

Hi There!
We are Celebrating Today!!!  What are we celebrating you ask?  We are celebrating the Launch of the new Stampsmith On-line store.  It is better than ever and redesigned.  You can browse, purchase stamps, create a wishlist, and view finished projects in the gallery.  And to celebrate, we are having a contest and a sale.  The Sale starts Saturday, October 8 at 6:00 am and ends  Sunday evening.   The discount code is TENOFF,  just put that in at checkout and get 10% off your purchase.

Now, the contest!  I will NOT be listing the stamps I have used in my project.  You will have to hunt them down on the newly designed On-line web site and find out their names.  DO NOT PUT THE NAMES ON MY BLOG.  GO OVER TO THE STAMPSMITH DESIGN BLOG AND LEAVE A COMMENT WITH THE STAMP NAMES.  Comment moderation will be turned on, so no one will see your answers.  The winner will receive  one Full Sheet and one single stamp of their choice.

That's a lot of info.  I hope I haven't lost you by now.  Okay, on with my project.  I made a large piece of wall art measuring 10" square.    I used two different Stampsmith Stamps.  Can you find them?  I tried not to be too sneaky.

 This is a large project and I wanted you to be able to see all the details.  Therefore, there are lots of photos. I won't "talk" too much and you can just look.  I started with a artist's canvas that I painted with acrylic paints.

For the center piece, the image was stamped on velum and layered over white CS and mounted on Navy CS.   The other image was stamped on glossy White CS and cut with a Sizzix die.   This whole piece was glued to the canvas using Fabri-Tac glue.

I will stop talking now and let you look.

So, now, pop over to the Stampsmith On line store and find the stamps I used.  Leave a comment on the Stampsmith Design blog with the stamp names to be eligible for the prize.  Good luck.  Hope you have enjoyed looking at my wall art.  I hung this on my living room wall.  Looks great. Have a fun weekend.  Love ya.
