Storage Units, Ink & More BLOG HOP

Welcome to the Storage Units, Ink & More

By participating in the blog hop, you will have a chance to win all 5 FABULOUS new stamp sets being released in June from Storage Units, Ink & More (SUINK!). All you have to do to be eligible to win the stamps is to hop along with us and leave a comment on each designer's blog along the way. You will hop through 9 designer's blogs (starting here with me) that will be showcasing the new sets and then finish off at the SUINK blog to leave your final comment telling us which stamp set is your favorite. That's it and the whole sha-BANG can be yours.

Denise will be picking a winner tomorrow, June 2nd, so you have until 12 midnight (EST) tonight to get you comments in. When the winner is picked we will verify that they have indeed left a message on each blog and if they did they will be crowned the winner!

So, are you ready for the fun? Today I am peeking one of the newest releases, called YOU'RE A HOOT. I literally squealed when I saw this set for the first time. This set is SUPER adorable. There are different owl images, a tree branch, bird houses, and a variety of sentiments for different occasions. I stamped the owl and branch in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them in with Copic Markers. It's hard to see in the photo, but I added Crystal Stickles to parts of the owl. The "You're A Hoot" sentiment was stamped in Chocolate Chip ink and punched out with my 1-3/8 circle punch. I used Prism cardstock and the patterned paper is by My Mind's Eye. To finish off my card, I added some matching buttons (which are available HERE at Storage Units, Ink & More) and a small piece of polka dot grosgrain ribbon.

Don't forget to leave a comment on each design team member's blog and the SUINK Blog in order to qualify to win all 5 new releases this month.

Now it's time to HOP on over to KRISTEN'S blog to see what she has in store for you.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the BlOG HOP!
