hey all you studio G folks!!!!! an invitation for you….

to get those sweet little stamps out and PUT THEM TO USE!!!

that’s right – i have read far too many posts in the last several months about people not using these little guys *GASP* – while they ARE super fun to collect they REALLY want to see ink!! and seriously you can ALWAYS find just what you need if you look to the studio Gs.

so to give you all some encouragement and inspiration I have begun hosting challenges over on the Paper Craft Planet Studio G collectors group in conjunction with Hampton Arts – the makers of Studio Gs – they are offering up a prize for the first challenge of each month!! Hampton Arts has ALOT more than just Studio G so I am excited to hear what goodies everyone gets each month!

the current challenge is invitations – my mom has asked me to make the invitations for our annual easter egg hunt/crawfish boil family reunion. SO i thought hey i have never inked up one of the invite SG sets…..the next challenge was born!

Here is invitation prototype number one:

i used my doodlecharms cricut cartridge on the card feature to cut the card and the frame. i accented the bunny and basket cutout with stickles, liquid pearls and glaze pens.


here’s the inside:

well i wasn’t too happy with this one and mom said she wanted a crawfish hatching out of an easter egg instead of a chick………..okaaayyyyy (no…there is NO such stamp…..)

then i was browsing through Angela’s shop – The Happy Stamper when I went by to talk about the Pezadoodle launch event next Tuesday – oh boy does she have LOTS to browse through – you’ll see more on that later. but i stumbled across a fiskars easter eagg punch – JUST the right size for the crawfish stamp i have from a couple years ago.

SOOOOOOOOOOOO…RE-DO!

here are a couple of the NEW invitations:


and the inside:
the crawfish, invited sentiment and inside wording were all stamped with rubarb stalk memento ink, spring is here was stamped with lime brilliance ink and the little easter egg cluster with a SUPER cool kaleidacolor pad in Bouquet. you can find all of these at Pez-A-Doodle and they are all on sale! i added a bit of flower soft along the bottom for grass. i may adjust the position of my crawfish a bit…..now off to see what mom thinks! how about y’all??? what do you think?

the challenge deadline is March 14th so you still have time to enter!!!

**EDITED TO ADD** you have GOT to go check out Catherine’s Pez-A-Doodle post today – PHEnom!!!

HOLY COW i got to Jen’s SFYTT in time – that hasn’t happened much lately!!! here is her awesome sketch ->

and my take on it:

i realized i had yet to use this awesome checkerboard background stamp from the Polkadot Pie launch so i stamped in memento bamboo leaves. then i filled in the empty squares with the various little mini chocolates from the two chocolate treats sets plus the little heart from the valentine pezzy set. i stamped the treats with Angel Pink and Rose Bud mementos. i highlighted the stamped background and the patterned paper with cotton candy stickles. paper, buttons, flower and polkadot brad are ALL from the pezzy’s picks sweetie pie mini kit!

so what do y’all think????

**NEW** studio G collector’s Group on PCP

that’s right – no sense collecting them if you aren’t going to use them!!!! i cringe when i hear of all the folks who have not put their adorable little studio Gs to work!! and so in honor of my lil favorites my studio G DT girl, robin is heading up a Studio G Collectors group over on The Planet. the main goal of the group is to get people to get those stamps out and use them! we have TWO things going on over there right now that both involve PRIZES!!!! One is a membership drive of sorts. if you join by friday you will be entered to win one of two studio G prizes!!!! the other is our first challenge for the group. i simply ADORE all the sentiments on the valentine portion of series 26. so i decided that for the first challenge i wanted to see how many sentiments (any SG series) you can use on a project. here is my sample:

i made this card to give hubby for our anniversary – i stamped using brilliance dew drops so i get a perfect, clear impression of all those little words and letters! what do y’all think??? i sure hope you collectors come on over and join in the fun on PCP. we will have a new studio G focused challenge every two weeks with prizes. it is also a good place to keep up on all the studio G news, coming series and to get help finding sets you may be missing. robin has a goal of 100 members in the first week so i do hope you join us!! in the meantime my posts may be a little lacking in the next couple days as i am preparing to launch a total revamping of my website. the new site will be far more orderly and easier to use i think.

Dust off those studio Gs my friends!!
