CHA Sneak Peek #1: Swirly Spring

The arrival of January always brings changes, at least to some degree...one of the most immediate and obvious being the start of a new year.

I don't look forward to all kinds of changes, but certain ones are very good, as this card illustrates:

Yep, each new year means brand new collections of Inky stamps that are introduced at the CHA show in Anaheim, and this year is no exception!

I'm delighted to present the Swirly Spring collection, drawn by Inky artist and designer Trudy Sjolander. The beautiful card above was made with 11156MC Swirly Butterflies Clear Set.

With their fanciful curved lines, these pretty images will add a decidedly feminine touch to your stamped projects. Not only that, but True has created several printed papers to coordinate with this collection.

For example, IA-PA002 Butterflies & Roses on Blue paper makes a lovely base layer on the first card:

Trudy is also spreading a bit of sunshine with 11159MC Swirly Sunshine & Flowers Clear Set:

And don't forget her IA-PA006 Sunny Day on White printed paper:

If you're looking to get a jump start on your Easter cards, you'll love 11158MC Swirly Easter Clear Set:

You can't see it from the photo, but there is an Action Wobbles spring behind the saying piece, which really adds spring-y fun. (Incidentally, you can get a FREE pack of Action Wobbles with your online retail order of $40+ in January. Click here for details.)

Add a burst of color to your Easter and other springtime cards with IA-PA005 Spring Flowers printed paper:

There are three more clear sets and three more printed papers in the Swirly Spring collection, which will make its debut in our latest flyer:

You'll find them, plus a whole lot more, when the entire release is available on the main Inky website next Monday, January 14th. I'll be posting more peeks all week long, so please check back every day.

And last but definitely not least: If you'd like a chance to win True's clear sets shown in this post plus all kinds of other great prizes, hop over to her blog for more information. She's hosting a special Blogaversary Celebration this month and has lots of goodies to give away!
