SCRS December Release - Introducing Valentine Oliver

Hello and Welcome to the final day of previews and the November release for Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps! Sparkle is releasing 2 new images -- they are available in the store now.. Today we are previewing Valentine Oliver!

Isn't Valentine Oliver the sweetest?! He has candy AND flowers for his Valentine! I paired him with some Basic Grey Bittersweet patterned paper. My bingo card was created by Sharon Harnist.. she generously has them available as a free download here. I printed the card, then I stamped the "LOVE" and colored in the "free" star. After coloring Oliver, I cut him out with a long rectangle nestability die, but it didn't look quite right on my layout, so I ended up doing some fussy cutting and popping him on top of the bingo card.

Be sure to visit her and the rest of the SCRS designers for more peeks of Valentine Oliver. Sparkle will be giving away a Valentine Oliver to one lucky person! For a chance to win, you need to comment on all of the designer's blogs (list below). Then head on over to the SCRS blog and comment on the Oliver post. You have until midnight EST each day to comment. The lucky winner will be announced the following day!

Suzanne, wonderful December guest designer!
