If you were one of the 8,698 Likes on our recent Facebook post about the "theoretical" idea of offering single stamps from sets, you'll be happy to learn that we're going to try it out and see how it goes! (And even if you didn't see the Facebook buzz you're still allowed to like the idea, of course.) We're excited to offer you the chance to buy single pieces from these greetings stamp sets: Word Play, Perfectly Penned, and Seasonal Sayings. 

The offer will last until January 2, 2013.  

Note that these single stamps will only be offered in clear-mount, they'll come without a block, and they'll be packaged in cello bags versus the plastic cases you're used to. Also, since this is a pilot program, Spanish and French stamp sets are not included in this offer. We're keeping things sweet and simple! 

Here are the stamps from the Seasonal Saying set from the Holiday Mini Catalog:

Today, I'm going to show you how to make a crow and a birdhouse.  Colors for the crow are Basic Black and More Mustard.  Colors for the birdhouse are Garden Green and Early Espresso with a Marina Mist flower.  

Punches used:  Small Oval, Owl Builder (hearts), Blossom Petals Builder, uni-ball Signo Gel Pen, scrap piece of black card stock.

Cut the tip off the petal piece and 2 thin strips from the black scrap.

Glue the tip of the petal to the oval for a beak.  The hearts are glued on upside down for the feet.  You could sponge oval with white ink before gluing if desired.

Glue the 2 strips behind the body, sticking up for the head feathers and make eyes with the gel pen.  Super easy!!!

The birdhouse base is 1" x 2".  The roof is a 1" square cut in half.  The holes are punched with the circle from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and the flower is from the same pack.  I just used a Pearl Basic Jewel for the center of the flower.  I stamped the house with the Woodgrain Background before assembling.
