Now, about those new stamps. Here’s a little back story on how some of this came to be.

At the beginning of the year, hubs and I planned a trip to Portland for our anniversary in February. I was born in Oregon and lived in a few cities…and visited those cities over the years, but Portland was never a part of that. For years I’d been wanting to visit and so we finally decided to go this year.

Well, that just brought up a whole lotta memories for this girl–being a child of the late 60s and 70s and all. So obviously I was influenced artistically with the stamps for this month. :)

Today we have, BRB, Hello Summer, Newport, Newport XL (Limited Release) as well as two backgrounds–Confetti and Buffalo Check. So excited about all these!

 

 

All this week we will be seeing these–and other KBS stamps–in action during our little party. These new babies are also on sale for 10% off through Sunday in celebration of iNSD! This includes the digital version of BRB and Hello Summer.

So, today I thought we’d highlight the new Newport alphabet with a little sprinkling of Confetti and a taste of Hello Summer and BRB, thanks to Miss Maggie.

I’ve been craving a ‘retro’ style alphabet for some time now–even before our trip to Portland. Something that had a 70s flair with a modern-day vibe. And that’s how Newport came to be. Also named for a city on the Oregon Coast. ;)

And speaking of the coast, here is Maggie to show off this fabulous Newport alphabet!

 

O.M.G. I love that stamped layered title! That’s brilliant. And how the confetti ‘cascades’ down the page for a background? Ack!

all these details. entire spread. made just from stamps. love.

Here’s what Maggie has to say:

My daughter and I recently took a whirlwind trip to Florida to celebrate her 16th birthday. The weather in Chicago has been the pits, and getting the chance to spend a few days on a beautiful beach was just what we needed to get us through the rest of this cold, rainy spring. I, of course, took a ton of photos, and was so excited to get home and get some of them documented…and Kerri’s new stamps helped me do exactly that…perfectly.

I started my notebook spread by inking up my Confetti stamp with 3 different ink colors…making sure to overlap them just a bit to give the impression and ombre feel. Then I simply stamped some of my favorite designs from the Hello Summer & BRB sets under that.

For the opposite page, I added my photos first…adhering them flush with the edge of the paper and then running a line of stitching down the side.

I stamped my title, “deerfield bch,” first in black and then went back and stamped it again – slightly shifted to the left of each letter – in blue. I just love this effect…I think it give the stamps so much depth and really allows your title to stand out.

Be sure to stay tuned all week here as the amazing KBS team shares their stamping wonderment!
