Having fun at the STAMP SHOPPE in Weston

Heidi and JoAnn are friends from long ago

Heidi and Joann are my friend Edith’s granddaughter and daughter.  Joann invited Edith and I to a stamping Monday at the stores work shop.  They are closed on Mondays so we could all play without being interrupted.  What fun!  It was so fun to pick out the paper and then walk through the store and choose all the parts and pieces that matched.  We purchased what we chose unless it was from their working bins of scraps in the back room.  Edith stamped out seventeen of her holiday cards and kept very busy at that.  I just played with all kinds of things and came up with my own designs.  Heidi and Jo were busy making cards that they will be selling at a craft show down in Texas. We all got a lot accomplished and had such a wonderful time together.   Subway next door was a great place to grab lunch.

Here’s my batch of fun from Monday a week ago.

Isn’t he a cutie? I used stickles on the snowflake and that little brad just set it off. The paper came in the double color like that thought it looks layered it isn’t.  I made two of these.

and something completely different for me. I used finger daubers to color the entire image with a variety of Tim Holtz distress inks.  What a beautiful Sizzex embossing folder this was.

Using my favorite technique of all, STENCILS!  The BG is one stencil moved around and filled in with sponge daubers and the butterfly is a huge stencil both from Dream Weavers who is also my favorite stencil company.  A tag from spellbinders and pearl pen accents finish it off. This one was one that I CASED from Heidi.

And this adorable snowman.  You will have to click on the picture to see that the cheeks are pearl pen and to really see the detail of the stamped image. I think this was Whippersnappers but I’m not positive about that.  Anyway this was a very fun image to work with.

There you go.  Thanks for taking the time to look and comment.  The stamping community is just a GREAT place to have fun.
