Thought I'd let you know that I'm holding the next class on Saturday December 7th at 11:00am. We will be decorating and putting together a chipboard "Winter Sled". As soon as I have a picture of a completed sled, I'll put it up. Class will be held at my house, cost is $10.00 and space is limited.

More Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays, including a few "Little Lindy's" and a couple of single ones, new stencil designs, more IndigoBlu stamps, Gold Embossing Paste back in stock and a few other odds and ends. The Optimist 6x6 paper pad by Prima, that I've been waiting on since the beginning of August is one of those odds and ends. Do you think it was worth the wait? I do, I have to admit.

On this card I used GG0176 - Leaf Pumpkin, DD0180 - Leaf Pumpkin, Sm., and the sentiment EE0171 - Hope all is Well. The small leaves were punched with one of the dies from PPRS - D037 Leaf Set. The larger branch is from CherryLynn Designs. I colored the pumpkins with Copics, filled in the scrolled lines with a green glitter pen, used various colors of glitter glue on the leaves and to outline. The leaves were cut out from a tag that I had sprayed with Colorations sprays a while back. The metal corners were painted with "Silk" paint. Mostly.

Hey Local Gals and Guys!
Finally, I'm going to start up some play-dates and classes again.
I thought the GELLI Plate would be a lot of fun to start with. So, this Friday 11am and Sunday at 1pm as well at my house. I am not providing refreshments, but there will be 3 yapping dogs.
And yes, I know this is short notice, but for those of you who know me, this should not come as a surprise. lol
I'll try to get more organized. Nah, not in in my genetic make up.
Don't know what a GELLY Printing Plate is? Here's a link to their website, check out their videos and gallery too. http://www.gelliarts.com/. If you have a plate, feel free to bring it and a brayer.
Please RSVP, and let me know if you need directions.

Hi and welcome!
If you're following the Prickley Pear Blog Hop in order you just came from Jessica's Blog. I'm sure everybody has told you that one lucky "commenter" will win a prize package, so make sure to leave a comment.
I sprayed my tag with Colorations Sprays, Lark and Denim, and blotted a little. Then I painted a quick layer of Sorbet-Frost on top, just for a little shimmer. Sprays and paint by Art Anthology. I stamped the new release stamps HH0150 - Snowbunnies in the middle, FF0054 - Merry & Bright below. Then I stamped DD0172 - Sm. Swirls & Snowflakes in silver and GG0160 - Swirls& Snowflakes in white all the way around the edges of the tag. (And a little further in too.) Then I embellished, silver ribbon, matte blue stones, sparkly stars, snowflakes and coordinating ribbons through the star brad at the top.
Thanks for visiting, and hop on over to Tracie's blog. She's next on the list.

Here I used the Prickley Pear Stamps HH0149 Amaryllis, HH0083 Mary and Baby Jesus, CLR033B Flourished Ovals 2 Holiday, D033 Flourished Oval Die. I used my Copics to color, imagine that, and Pumice Stone Distress Ink to age the edges a little.

The other day I watched a video on the Art Anthology blog, and loved the project.
So here is my version.
I sprayed my tag with Colorations Sprays, Timeless, Paprika and Pesto. Then I painted a quick layer of Dimensional Crystal - Blizzard on top, just for a little shimmer. Just like Stacy Rodriguez, who did the original project,(http://artanthologyinc.com/blog/?p=1450)
I used the Velvet Truffle and aged the edges a little, then used it to "ink" up my stamp and stamp along the edges for some interest. The main image/sentiment I stamped in black Archival ink.
These are the stamps I used, and they are from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps. HH0081 - Delicious Autumn and CLR037 - Fall Leaves Clear Stamp Set.
I do carry Prickley Pear Stamps and dies in my store as well as the whole line of Art Anthology Products.
