Before I get to an awesome day at a stamp convention I want to invite you to Art Journal Journey to play along with this month's challenge "For The Record" of which I am guest designer. I am also featured at Try It On Tuesday and have posted a tutorial in this post on gesso resist using the theme of "add a quote" for my project. Would love for you to join in! Links also on the sidebar:)
Saturday my friend LuAnn and I went to a neighboring town for the annual Heirloom Productions Rubber Stamp Convention and we not only got some awesome things but had a blast oohing and aahing over so many gorgeous creations. Warning- a bit picture heavy here!
Here's my take away:
A few samples of the display cards showing some of the dies I purchased:
Next stop was Impression Obsession's booth where I got this:
Some new "cover a card" stamps, new ink pads and a set of Pan Pastels!! That starfish card was demoed using the stamp I did buy along with pan pastels. I love those pan pastels!!
Here are a few more card samples:
A new Staz On ink-Fuschia along with a container of tiny buttons, only two washi tapes(see the display below and you'll see just HOW good I was there:):), and two acetate sheets. I will add colored glitter to the backs and layer to cards.
Where I got my acetate:
One more display to share:
I will say that LuAnn and I did very well, and I stuck to the list I had made before going in-except for the 2 washi tapes:):) Now to get a play day going!!
