Here are the projects I have created using the Alpha Outlines stamp set.
I really just love the Alpha Outline stamps from A Creative Journey with Melissa.
Everyday Alphabet Outline Upper and Lower Case
 What makes them really unique is that they contain both upper and lower case! Many stamps it is one or the other...not both. You can also color them in as well as overlap them! The size is perfect for both cards. She also has a coordinating set with more symbols and numbers! It is perfect for birthday cards as well as the ultra popular hash tags and quotes "#"!
Everyday Alphabet Outline Numbers and Symbols
So here are my two projects. I really wanted to do something for winter that could be used as a Christmas card or anything else for that matter!
Front of card. Don't you just love the snowman looking up for more snow???
Close up of stamped image.
Close up of my snowman and snowflake!

The inside of the card. Love the font!

The paper is from Close To My Heart as well as the ink.

My second project is an easy quick little gift tag! The paper is White Daisy from Close To My Heart and I embossed it with Anna Griffin's folder. The Silver snowflake is also from Anna Griffin. I bought it with the auto ship program from HSN.

I used Crystal Blue ink from CTMH and stamped "Snowflake Kisses" obviously from A Creative Journey with Melissa! LOL!

Here are the other stamps that are being released today!!!

Greetings on the Go 

I have said it more than once and will say it over and over again...I love her stamps! You do NOT have to "season" them. Most of these images are first time stamped without a foam pad under it! I just do it on my messy desk top that is a solid wood. They are very compact and easy to store. Another great thing cause you can hide it from your significant other with the saying "Oh I have had those forever"!

Hope you have enjoyed my blog today. Remember to answer my blog question:

What project can you see yourself using this awesome stamp for???

Then hop over to Melissa's blog...answer her question and go on to the next. Expect to be inspired!!!!

Thank you for visiting me and hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends!
