Halloween Cards - Part 1

Getting to be time to think about Halloween cards.  Fall is definitely in the air here in the midwest...trees are starting to turn and some brisk breezes signal that it is time to get out the pumpkins and get our Halloween spirit going.

I have recently started offering ribbons in bulk at and I thought I would share some great cards made with their product by the fine folks at Creative Impressions.  A few today and several more in a day or two.  Questions about how they are made?  Comment here or email me at for details.

You may have seen this company's products in a recent bloghop with Coredinations or in many many samples on your favorite blogs or newsletters.

So here is the contest...use any Sweet Stamp Shop product on any project and submit your entry to me at with SWEET in the subject line   Take several pics and submit them together.  You may submit as many projects as you would like to during the entire month of May.  On June 1st we will open the  voting so that you and your friends and people who owe you a favor can vote for their favorite entry.  On June 8th, the winner of the voting will be announced as well as a winner chosen by random cool is that....two chances to win.  Both winners will receive a $25 credit for shopping at  And since this is our first contest - anyone who submits a project to the contest, will get a coupon code, valid for the entire month of June, for 10% off your entire order at  - just for entering.  Does it get any better than this?

So for those of you who have been with me from the beginning, you know that this started out as a little hobby, a way to spay for my own addiction to paper.  And now, here we are....

As of tomorrow, it will be three years since I opened my little spot on Etsy.  You, my fabulous customers, have been with me through paper that didn't sell, orders from my vendors that didn't arrive, things that sold too quickly, things that never sold, and  so much more.  

Three years ago, nobody had heard of Amy Tangerine, Tim Holtz only did chemicals, flocked paper was the most fabulous thing on the planet and new companies arrived in our sights regularly.  What a different world we have in papercrafting today.

So enough about where we have been together....let's talk about where we are going....

For the short term, I would like to invite you to my anniversary party.  Until Friday the 10th (the anniversary of my first sale which was, by the way, German scrap) take 20% off your total order at  Use coupon code happyanniversary and your 20% will automatically be deducted.

Lots of fine product there at lots of fine prices...more arriving all the time.  Enter your comments below and on Friday I will choose one comment to win a $25 credit toward your shopping.

Because you are my blog are getting this announcement a day before the rest of my customers..... As always, thank you all for your support and encouragement.

Let's all sing now.....Happy Anniversary!
