Matchbox Messages

The Blog Tour is over and it was such a success that we'll be doing it again in the future! Thanks for stopping by.

I am leaving up two of my samples from the Matchbox Messages stamp set for your viewing pleasure :) I used some of the In-Color palette (Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze) for the first set, paired with Chocolate Chip and a pop of Whisper White. In-Colors '09 are only available until June 30, when we get an updated palette for 2010, so get 'em while you can!


The Matchbox Messages set is designed to work with the Big Shot Matchbox Bigz XL die (finished box above), so I paired the next sample with another Big Shot Die, the Top Note, and a warm patchwork blanket made from Candy Lane Designer Series Paper to welcome a baby:


I love the Matchbox Die that co-ordinates with this set for the Matchbox, but the little frames on the above cards are also on the same Die...too cute!

I overlooked this stamp set in the mini catalog because I don't have a Big Shot and so it makes no sense for me to purchase the matchbox die, as much as I like what it can do. Thank you for jogging my brain and bringing Matchbox Messages to my attention! Your samples are great -- love the colors!
