Five Minute Friday: Dog Sympathy

I know there are lots of animal lovers who follow my blog.  So you will understand how hard it is to make a card like this.  Yesterday a good friend of mine had to say good-bye to her sweet 16 year old Weimaraner, Mia.  She was a sweet dog and I am so sad for my friend and her loss.  I whipped together this sympathy card using Market Street Stamps Pawprints On Our Hearts, the new Sweet Shoppe paper (even making a little tag on the collar from one of the hearts in the paper) and some Divine Twine Cotton Candy and ivory double faced satin ribbon.  The pup is colored with Copics and popped up on dimensional dots and stamped with Memento ink (as is the greeting).  CAS and hopefully a comfort to my friend in her time of loss.
Have a lovely weekend and if you've got some furry ones, give them a little extra love this weekend!  Check back next week for some new goodies in the store!  And, if you're a mom, Happy Mother's Day!    ~Kate

Check out these along with the rest of Neat & Tangled in stock right HERE.

Reverse Confetti Release Day!

Today's the day! Reverse Confetti, the new line of stamps from the incredibly sweet & talented Jen del Muro, is available. And we are absolutely honored that she handpicked IHP to be the ONLY online store to carry her new stamp line!

A note from Jen del Muro of Reverse Confetti

In 2012 while crafting in my studio I came up with the idea of doing something I swore I would never do…create my own company.  What started out as an idea to create paper company quickly transformed into something close to my heart…stamps.  Then and there, Reverse Confetti was born.  We are very pleased to introduce our first release: four 4x6 sets made from the highest quality photopolymer.

As a customer and fan of i {heart} papers, I am  so very excited to have Reverse Confetti stamps here at IHP.  Look for Reverse Confetti releases on the 8th of every other month.  Inspiration using RC stamps can also be found on our blog.

And here are the goodies - available in the IHP store now - as well as some gorgeous samples from Jen.

You can follow the links above, or find all of the Reverse Confetti stamps in the store HERE.

Be sure to stop by our Facebook page once you've played with your new Reverse Confetti stamps and show us what you've made! We cannot wait to see!
