Featured Stamper :) & order updates

 Photobucket

First up – biz-ness – i have some backorders and all outs to tell you about:

  • Skittle Ladybug & Bee beads – early October
  • Skittle Caterpillar 7 Butterfly Scallop stamps – late September
  • Rock Candy Distress Stickles & Crackle Paint – 9/7
  • Tim Holtz Ideology new releases – no date yet
  • Studio G series 37 – Christmas – COMPLETELY OUT – Hampton Art does not have any more to order at all so i will NOT get any more of these in
  • Studio G orders – I am still waiting on some items for the last few SG orders – i am really trying to be able to consolidate shipping but i KNOW y’all are tired of waiting so i might be sending them out in separate shipments.  I truly aappreciate your patience as the Studio G orders can be incredibly difficult to get straight and get them outta here!

NOW for the FUN stuff!

My Sketch 13

Melissa has this fun sketch up for this week and as always – there is a prize up for grabs from Lindsay at Sassy Studio Designs!!

I had SO many ideas for this I may just have to make another one if I get time this week!

Here is mine:

This was SUCH a fun little card to do!  the patterned paper is one of my MOST favorite ones from SU.  I decided this was a perfect sketch to break out a just rite stamper set from my friend terri at Stampsalive – she always has great prices if you are looking for anything just rite, cuttlebug, cricut or spellbinders!  so on the top circle i used a border and a center sentiment piece.  then on the bottom circle i just used the border piece to frame my birds a bit.  i thought the side pieces would be great for little cricut border cuts – i edge my cuts with an ink blending foam tool – makes it quick and easy.  

tuesAM close upthe larger bird is grungepaper – cuts nicely in the Cricut with the deep cut blade!  i embossed the grungepaper, painted it with a paint dabber, sanded lightly, rubbed on distress ink – ink only sticks where the paints is rubbed off by the sanding.  i gave them a little flower soft *dirt* to stand in and finished off with a machine stitched edging (thanks to DH for fixing my machine for me – he’s awesome!) and a row of glittered skittles where melissa had brad – looking things on her sketch – i gotta say the skittles really MADE the card.  wish i had taken before and after pics!

i SO need to use my cricut more like i used to!!  much cheaper addiction than stamping!
