Sneak Peek #1: Art Journal Words and Faces + DAILY GIVEAWAYS!

Hello friends!
Today I am SO EXCITED to get to share with you a Sneak Peek into what will be a new size of stamp set...the 6x8 size!  This size enables me to include almost double what is on the 4x6 size!!  This ART JOURNAL WORDS AND FACES SET will retail at $23.99 and has SO much to offer--around 50 separate stamps!!...several faces that you can adjust the mouths on to show joy, sadness, indifference, nervousness, or leave the mouth off for a whole different expression!  You'll have to stop by Friday for a full view of ALL the stamps being released, but until then, I have several samples to share:
The card above I made using several of the words together on a block to create the background:

I stamped it twice (as shown above).  Next I used Distress Ink and a sponge dauber to ink around the outside edges, before matting, tying a bow and stamping 'JESUS' on a piece of yellow cardstock:

This set can also be used for art journaling or scrapbooking on larger paper.  I used one of the face stamps off of this with a smile stamp and the stamp 'Scripture' on page 2 of my 2 page layout in the 31 Days of ART Journaling post over on the Godblessyourart blogspot post, where I gave an extra sneak peek of the set laying on a painted surface:

(The body was created in the journal, but is not a stamp)  The words "I Believe God" are from the sneak peek too!
Anita, from the Design Team, made a couple of projects, too:

Leave a comment=you are entered in our $10 store credit giveaway!
SHARE our Sneak Peek Week and Giveaway with your friends and encourage them to come comment.
When someone says YOU sent them, if they win=YOU will win, too!!
You have until noon Tuesday to leave a comment here and/or our facebook page...we'll announce the winner for today in Tuesday's post! 
Until then,
~Antoinette  We ship most orders out the SAME DAY they are placed!!
