A collection of my many interests: rubber stamping, health and nutrition, all things Market America, my spiritual journey, and the mishaps and quirks of my everyday life.

Forgotten Samples

   I was going through my stamped work from the last couple of years and found some things that I hadn't posted yet. I had made a few tags, an altered Bingo card, and flowers, so here they are:

    This was made from Coredinations cardstock, which has a different color core so you can sand it to shade it. I sanded the edges, but I didn't sand it enough so the shading doesn't show up much. The leaves were die cut from an envelope that I received in the mail. This is one time when I love getting junk mail! (I'll post this flower again once I decide what to put in the center, lol!)

I like making tags with distress inks, and I love these Wendy Vecchi butterfly stamps.

Doing the altered bingo cards was great fun! I wish the butterfly showed up better, I colored it with Ranger's Adirondack alcohol inks, and I love the way it turned out.

 I don't know what I am going to do with all the tags I have made, but it sure is fun!

Tammy and I made some paste paper several years ago, and it had just been sitting here. So when I saw the directions for making your own washi paper, I knew this was the perfect thing to try it with. I like how it turned out! You just lay pieces of double-stick tape down on the paper and cut it out. Now these are tapes, and washi tape is all the rage now.

Hopefully, I will be making a lot of samples in the near future to add!

Finally! A New Sample!

   After a long hiatus from stamping I finally sat down today and actually did a project, start to finish. I don't usually finish something in one day, it usually has to sit a few days while I decide what to add, but this one just flowed. It isn't something that a lot of people can relate to, but if there are any Tim Holtz fans reading this, you might like it. So here it is: Ta Da!

Isn't that crazy?
