Exciting News!

Hello everyone,

If you are looking for my Repeat Impressions post, please scroll down!

Are you ready for some very exciting news? It's been hard to keep this secret!
 There's a new stamp store making its' debut today! 

A long time creative friend, Chelsea Comer, (some of you know her as Inky Stamper) has begun designing her own line of stamps and dies. At 8:00 a.m. today, Chelsea's new stamp store, the Inky Stamper Arts & Crafts Store opened for business!

Chelsea asked me to design a sample for her store opening today. Of course I said yes, and it's a good thing ya'll couldn't see this old woman happy dancin' and squealing, here in my girl cave! 

When my Inky Stamper package arrived, the first thing that I noticed was the unique packaging. These stamps are packaged in resealable high quality bags!!! Look at this package - pretty impressive, right?  It's sad to pay a lot of money for a set of stamps, and the first time you use it, the package has to be taped together. This package is going to last a long, long time! 

The next thing that impressed me, was that every single set will have sentiment(s) included. Yep...Every. Single. Set!

So, do you want to see my sample? Lol...I couldn't stop with one, so without further ado (as Chelsea would say), here is what I created using using one of her new sets, 'Sandbox'.

For this card, I stamped and colored the image, matted and mounted it onto some cute designer paper. The sentiment was stamped on black with Versamark, and heat embossed. Sentiment was popped up with some tiny dimensional dots.

 I was hoping this paper would look a bit like sand, but I think it was a fail.... This image was very quickly stamped, colored, matted, and added to a treat box filled with candies.

Again, this was just some creative card folding, and a bit of coloring, matting, and assembilng.

For the last card, I stamped the image on white cardstock. I then created a 'mask', by stamping the image again on some masking paper.

I placed the mask over the stamped image, and began to draw some clouds, water, sun, etc.

The mask was removed, and I colored the card with Copic markers, and used a fine liner to outline. The final touch was a white gel pen to add a few fun accents. I was trying to make the sun shining off of the body of water, but not sure it works!!! What do you think?

Hope you will check back here next Wednesday - I will have another fun item(s) to debut for the Inky Stamper Arts & Crafts Store!

Thanks for stopping by today - hugs and smiles to all, and remember - a little sand between your toes...always takes away your woes!
