Swirlies and Brayering

Hello! I'm believing you're having a wonderful day today! I've been having fun practicing my brayering skills...and I think that I need to continue practicing. lol! I love sponging and brayering backgrounds because when I was first introduced to rubberstamping by my sister, brayering was the first thing she taught me...and I loved it! Anyhow, I really haven't practiced that technique in a while so here's the fruit of my labor, so to speak. I used the "Swirlies", "Inspirational Saying" and "Soul Kisses" stamp sets for these cardfront samples: Yes, I glittered (Prisma Glitter) my label-shaped cardstock first and then when it was dried I stamped on it...pretty neat, huh? It looks a lot better IRL. Thanks again for dropping by to visit!


What to do with these Arrows?

Reminder, don't forget to order your July SOTM (stamp of the month) set. I was honored for the previlege to design this month. I have to admit that at first I was really challenged...what am I gonna do with all these ARROWS? But once I got "peaceful" in my brain, I had lotsa fun designing. Here's what I came up with: a picture frame, a flower stem, a mini purse and matching booklet, baby giraffe card, clock hands, simple scrapbook page, an inspirational mini book, bracelet and bracelet and necklace set! So you see you'll find that this stamp set is SOOOOOOOOOO versatile! Take a look for yourself: Well, your turn to show me what you've done with your Elegant Arrows stamp set! Thanks so much for visiting!

Combining Vintage Trimmings & Stamping

I have been trying to get to my vintage "stash" and use these vintage goodies...lace & crocheted trimmings that I got from my wonderful friend, Sandy. I did finally get around to it. And how delightfully well these vintage items go with rubber stamping, or at least I think so.. hehe! I used the "No Place Like Home" and "Swirlies" stamp sets. Tell me what you think....nothing fancy here but I certainly had lotsa fun playing with these: Thank you for visiting my blog...appreciate it!
