Since I have been home from Stampaway, I have been playing with some new stamps and dies. Also I have been coloring with my Copics and the more I use them the more I like them. So as I get more familiar with them I know I am going to like them even more.
I saw this stamp set and knew I just had to have it, you know, it was screaming my name, so I bought it and worked it up just to see what it look like. Well I love this set.
Next I picked up some stencils and I haven't used stencils for eons but the end result made it worth the money I spent. I actually bought 4 different sets and talk about cool. These stencils are the plastic type not the brass type. These are also great for making your own background paper. I just used the berry branch from this stencil and do you believe it, the berrys were done using a copic marker. I used a sponge dauber to apply ink for the branch. I really like the subtleness of the branch and the dominate red of the berry.
Next, I know everyone is familiar with Spellbinder Dies, well I found dies from the Netherlands and these are so nice. The work the same as a Spellbinder die and will fit in the same machine that you are currently using.
The dies on the left made the flower on the right on this card. I know this paper is kind of busy but I used some stencils with leaves and swirls. I wanted to see what background I could come up with using one of the stencils I purchased recently.
Here are a few more of the dies that I absolutely fell in love with. These are really cool and when I found them it was so hard to choose what to buy, the selection was huge. But I am happy with my selection.
Well that is it for now, thanks for stopping by, see you soon,
