Laurel Burch Heart Bouquet by Stampendous

Good morning everyone! I recently returned from Jennifer Dove’s Copic Boot Camp where I received lots of stamps, dies, adhesives and other products from generous sponsors. You can see a sample of the gifts in my recent Instagram posts, but there’s lots more that I haven’t yet had a chance to acknowledge. Boot Camp was fabulous! I got to catch up with old friends from across the country and meet new friends along the way. Registration for next year’s boot camp will probably open in early spring so jump on it to reserve your spot.

I’ve spent the past few days trying to organize all my loot from Boot Camp. There must be over twenty stamps from sponsors like My Favorite Things, Lawn Fawn, Witt & Sass, Crafting Desert Divas and many others. And I apparently went on a buying spree just before I left because lots of packages arrived while I was gone. So I’m knee deep in new product that I’ll be showing off in the coming months.

In the course of organizing, I came across a card that I made as a card model for The Queen’s Ink and never posted so I’ll leave you with this one featuring the Laurel Burch Heart Bouquet Stamp by Stampendous to brighten up a cold November day. And for you local folk – don’t forget that I’m offering three classes this month:

  • November 10Fall Friends (featuring My Favorite Things), Photo Scraps, Eldersburg, MD.
  • November 15Fall Friends (featuring My Favorite Things), Photo Scraps, Eldersburg, MD.
  • November 20Winter Greetings (featuring Power Poppy), Queen’s Ink, Savage Mills, MD.

Hope to see you there!

Painting Pumpkins by Power Poppy

Power Poppy Painting PumpkinsGood morning friends! I’m back once again with the new digital release from Power Poppy – Painting Pumpkins. Painted pumpkins — whether given a coat of chalky milk paint in pastel hues, a bold dip with metallic accents, or delicate dots with a fine-tipped brush — are all the rage. Now you can paint the pumpkins in real life AND in your papercrafting process. In this digital set, Marcella has several pumpkins primed for your special creative touches. Paint pots and brushes await your artwork on the “blank canvas” version, or use one of the pre-drawn patterns or jack-o-lantern faces. A series of 4 sentiments ranging from a general Thank You through Halloween and Thanksgiving allows multiple uses for this fresh fall imagery.

Take a look at what the Instant Gardeners have for you and be sure you stop by the Power Poppy blog for additional inspiration.
