Erin's discussion question for next podcast:

One of the things I love about having and building a stamp collection is the fun combinations I can find between stamp sets. Let me think of an example.

Off the top of my head because I just made it, I teamed up some of the rounded rectangle stamps from Maile's Modern Basics with a whale sentiment from Dawn's new release this month. Two rounded rectangles from Modern Basics look like a stylish rendering of a whale tale, so the two worked together. You'll see my card here on the countdown very soon.

For another example, the Take Three Series and one of the Fillable Frames dies—the stamp fits nicely in the frame. These are just seredipitious discoveries on the part of the stampers. The stamps weren't made to go together. And it is like hitting the jackpot when you find two things that work together well.

In your experience, what has given you a creative thrill of discovery when you have put two or more stamps together. Give me examples! Not only do I want to hear them, other people will be rushing to their stamp drawers to try them out themselves.

Be sure to call into our Google Voice account (301-799-8338) with your answers as well as your questions for our design team, stamp designers, Nichole, or Jenn. If choose to be used in our podcast, you have a chance to win a stamp set of your choice.

    Hi Erin, Great Podcast today, you are a fantastic hostess! You have great questions and I enjoy the interactions between you and your guests. Dawn has long been one of my favorite designers and I do love her Signature stamp sets and use them often, so I hope to see more in the future. Now, I can start my weekend and am inspired to go and do some creative projects!

    First time listening to your podcast. Loved it. I have to chuckle because I at times feel some negativity because “I” have the time to craft and bless others with my things. Enjoyed it much. Thanks Erin and God bless all of you at Papertrey!
