Fun Dies!

I love these new accordion style stencils I've gotten in. Here I also used a snowflake die from PPRS and a clear sentiment set, also from PPRS - made specifically to fit in the snowflake.

Bad, bad blogger.

If there was a blog police - that's what they would tell me. There is no doubt in my mind.

I'm about to rectify this situation with a sample of a tag I just made, using a stamp set from our new vendor Art Journey from Holland. Here's a link to the stamp set - Brushes & Pencils.  http://www.thestamproom.com/brushesandpencils.aspx

Life is good!

2 great days with my husband of almost 35 years, conquering my fear of riding motorcycles. Well on the back of his. AND.......(drumroll) ART JOURNEY stamps are in!!! New company for us, from the Netherlands. In the shipment, the stamp I need to make Part 2 of my video Swimmingly, and oh so many other goodies Check out these waterdrops for instance. Comes in 2 different sizes.

Couple of new samples.

This adorable stamp is by Stampendous, and I HAD to have it. Not that I'll ever forget a daughter's wedding, but this so reminds me of what she wore - an adorable white sundress and cowboy boots. It doesn't get more Alex than that and I love her for being so true to herself.



This next card has nothing to do with anything, except that as soon as I saw the butterfly I knew I had to color it with my Copics. This is the brand new Hot Picks 1301 stamp from PaperArtsy.

May Newsletter

     May 2014 Newsletter

Hi Everybody,
Another month has flown by. At least for me. And I'm running behind with just about everything as usual.
Those of you that have followed me for a little while might notice that I am a day or two ahead of my normal late. lol
So, let me get to what you really want to hear about - the May Sale and new merchandise.
What's on Sale:

At 40% off this month we have:
 
 Any remaining KaleidoColor inkpads
 Encore Inkpads
 Adhesives
 6x6 and A4 Paper Pads
 Books
 Art Parts by Wendy Vecchi
 Stampavie Stamps


During the month I will be adding BildMalarna and Magnolia stamps to the CLEARANCE section. It has to be done stamp by stamp, so it's going to take a little time to get done. Hopefully within the next week though.

Just In at THE STAMPROOM:
 
New stencils from The Crafters Warehouse, Judikins, Clear Scrap, PaperArtsy and (going up this afternoon) 8x8's from FabScraps.
Replenished and added some new colors in the PanPastels, added quite a few new single colors to the Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Sprays, new stamps and dies from Stampendous. I love their new PenPattern stamps for those of us that are ZenTangle challenged, and their Blossom Beauty stamp with stencil and mask. 
We added a new stamp company - Character Constructions. I have 3 of their sets on the main page of the website. 
There are more things, odds and ends, but you're just going to have to check it out for yourselves.

Coming soon is yet another new company - Art Journey from the Netherlands. They have absolutely gorgeous stamps and I am soo excited to have been chosen as the first wholesaler for them. 
New release "Hot Picks" stamp sets from Paper Artsy, Chocolate Baroque May release and restock on Andy Skinner stencils.
This weekend I will be adding an exciting new product, just out - Spectrum Noir Colored Pencils. What makes them different is that they are oil based, not lead. They are so easy to blend. 
You'll also see a few Dina Wakley stamps and stencils and Inktense Pencils in various 
pack sizes as well as one set of the Inktense Blocks. 
 
Last, I would like to ask you to check out our "Medium" section. Some of the harder to find things I actually have - Fiber Paste, Glass Bead Gel, Super Heavy Gesso and more.
 
Well, this should do it for this time. I'll let you know when all the new goodies are in.
;)

Different Direction.

I am on a roll today!
 This one required A LOT less time etc. The stamp is called PenPattern Flower, from Stampendous. I just took it in a whole different direction than their "PenPattern" style.
I white-embossed the flower multiple times on the back ground, then used the Fresco JOFY Limited Edition paint set and painted over the flowers. Wipe the paint off with a light touch and a baby wipe. Lay down each color on a separate paper and white emboss the flower on top of each color. Then just cut them out, do a little shaping and glue in place. I thought the little saying went well.

Stampendous' Blossom Beauty


This face stamp (Blossom Beauty w/template) is so cool and versatile. I stamped it in black ink, used PanPastels to color the skin. Then I went to town on her "hair". It's a technique I picked up from a Donna Downey video. I took different kinds of flowers, the biggest ones I assembled myself, then I glued them down in an arch, which I drew using the Blossom Beauty template. Since none of the flowers matched color wise, I slathered them with Gesso until I felt they had good coverage. I painted them with Art Anthology Sorbet paints, using the colors Just Peachy, Mi Bella and Coral. When everything was dry I took clear embossing ink and dabbed away, then poured Clear UTEE on and melted it. This last step was repeated a couple of times to get the desired effect - a sort of glass look.
The background was sprayed with a Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst blue spray, then I added the falling stars with a stencil and Golden's Glass Bead Gel. I went over the stars with a little bit of Perfect Pearls for some extra shimmer. The fence is a Tim Holtz die and I punched it out of cardboard, peeled away a layer here and there and painted it with Art Anthology Cotton.

Fresco Finish Chalk Paints


Finally got ALL the colors uploaded to the website. These are awesome paints from PaperArtsy in the UK.
Their tutorial videos are what got me interested, so I tried a few, and now, The Stamproom carries the the whole line. Opaque, Semi-Opaque and Translucent matte paints.
You have to check out their YouTube videos, here's a link to an informational video they have:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5DmP4AncA4&list=UUs9MVeZCc8hFqi2_T7ygsfA

Then look at some of their paint projects, this "bump" technique looks so cool.

"Special Delivery!"

Here's a little quick card using Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps, the stork and the sentiment,
as well as their new Flourished Oval Nesting Die. The paper is from  "Bundle of Joy" 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad from Kaisercraft. I embellished with some brads, a flower and the metal heart from Junkyard Findings - Metal Hearts by Prima. I linked all the items I used to their page in my store. Just in case anyone is interested in taking a closer look.  ;)

April Class Sample

Next class, on Sunday 4/6, this is what we will be working on. Or something similar, since I know my ladies like to "do their own thing". 


Friday, March 7, 2014

Colors, colors, colors!!

Lots of new colors from Art Anthology in their Sorbet Line, Colorations Sprays and they have added "Metal Effects" (Gold, Silver, Copper and Bronze) and "Stone Effects" (Lava, Bone, Brick and Sand Stone).

Springtime!

How about that, a Spring sample. I know for a lot of you Spring seems and feels very far away, but trust me, it's not.
This stamp, Floral Lady,  is by Stampendous, I think that by just changing the colors, you can use her all year around.

I colored her with Copics, used the new "Grape Crush" Stickles to highlight a few things, and painted the "Fine Oval Frame" by Make it Crafty with "Silks".

New Items Just In

The new Distress Paint colors came in, some of the new Adirondack Alcohol Ink colors, ICE Resin kits, new stencil designs by The Crafters Workshop (still uploading a few more) stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations and more.

If you haven't been to the site lately, we have added Andy's stamps as well.

Little FYI!

The class price for Friday has been changed from $20 to $15, found the perfect item to work on, and it's a lot cheaper. Woo Hoo!

Calling All Local Gals! (Jacksonville FL.)

Came across this really cool technique in a British magazine, The Craft Stamper. In the article "Reflections"
Christine Dark shows us how to recreate the look of mercury glass.

I thought it looked like we could make it into a fun class. So if you are not busy on Friday February 28th, come on over! It's at my messy house as usual. Thought we'd start at 10.30 am, that gives everybody plenty of time in the morning. The cost is $15.00 - that includes everything (yes, the yapping dogs, too). Of course, if you want to bring your own Black Archival ink pad, you won't have to wait for my one and only one.
Here is a quick little sample, we will be working on a bigger piece, but this will hopefully give you an idea of what we're doing. You really don't get the "mercury glass" from this one.

Chocolate Baroque Just In.

The new February stamp designs, and lots of other sets, just came in. The February sets - called Mackintosh Beauty and Window - are absolutely gorgeous. A little different from what we usually see from Chocolate Baroque. There is also a coordinating clear sentiment set. Just realized I may have forgotten to add that to the shop. OOPS!
                    

Here is a link to Chocolate Baroque - you can see some of their samples.  http://chocolatebaroque.blogspot.co.uk/
