Undefined Kit & a Rare Sight

Hi there!
I finally decided what I wanted to carve my 'Undefined' stamp carving kit into.
I made a Kite, a Kite tail, a Cloud & 'wind'  :)
All a lot of fun!
And here are a couple of cards I made while the inspiration was flowing after joining in a team Sketch Challenge (see pic bottom of post)....
And the 2nd....
Which is your favourite?
Be sure to get an Undefined Carving Kit for yourself!
It's a heap of fun :)
Thanks for stopping by!

Get your Single Christmas stamps before Christmas!

A new, Christmas-themed collection of single stamps is now available!  Christmas will be here before you know it, and these holiday-themed single stamps may be just what the budget-conscious stamper needs.  There are eight different stamps to choose from, six of which coordinate with Framelits dies or punches.   Download the flyer by clicking on the image in the right-hand column.

These won’t be sent in our typical cases or packaging; they’ll be packaged in cello bags.

If you’d like a case for your stamp, you can buy our Clear-Mount Stamp Cases that come in packs of four (item 119105).

This offer is available for clear-mount stamps only.

The stamps won’t come with a Clear-Mount Block, and you’ll need to buy a block separately if you don’t already have one. The recommended block sizes can be found on the flyer.

These Single stamps are only available through 31 January, 2014, so get them while you can!

Anna :)
