I was interested in picking up the XOXO cling stamp. Its a very bold and funky design. I love the way you've applied it to different cards, but the embossing is my favorite. This is my first time on your blog and I love what I see.. looking forward to more!Very well done.

I think I need that xoxo stamp! How fun.


The fold embossed xo card is usually what I would lean towards. However I love the black background with the xo. I wouldn’t have thought to use black as the background and it really caught my eye. Awesome job on all of them.
