Housekeeping Update

Hi All!

Thanks for joining me again. Just some housekeeping news for you, the fall sale in the shop has ended - but you can still save with your code "blogger" at checkout.

I've also added some new vintage rubber stamps to the shop this week. They're pretty cool, so be sure to jump on over to the shop and check 'em out! I'll be adding more as the week progresses, so don't miss out on any of them! Join my facebook page for continual updates and freshly listed items.

New items are in the works!

Ciao and Welcome Back!
In the last week or so I had run out of supplies, so I have been pretty limited on what I could create. After purchasing new supplies, I've been working on more gnome-themed items.
Also, woodland creatures and items are making their way to the shop as well.

So that's what's happening in the studio right now. :-) Check back soon for more updates.

Hi All,

I've been getting some messages lately that comments are not available on my blog. OH NO! :P So I have done some fiddling and hopefully the problem is resolved.

I'm absolutely loving my new crafting space! I've got more room to spread out and craft, and I find myself crafting more often. And best yet! I live alone, so I don't have to clean up if I don't want to! (And better STILL - NO ROOMMATES!!!) Not that I ever did before because I crafted in my own room, but now I'm using the space dedicated in my apartment for a dining room as my crafting space, so it's not taking up space in my bedroom. (Just making my apartment look messy - ha!) Where do you craft? I'd love to see your crafting space and how you organize your creative space.

I've started on a new card featuring an image from Anita Be Stampin. I chose Sasha.
First I colored my image with my copic markers. I chose a cool color palette to form a cohesiveness with the entire card.

Monday the 10th: New in my Shop

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope your weekend was nice and relaxing. New in my shop today is a sweet little winter-themed card that was posted Saturday.

I decided not to go with a sentiment for this card. I think having a sentiment on cards has a tendency to classify cards too much. At any rate, this card is clean and simple. I used a sheet of acetate to give it a cool glossy effect. This is my first time using acetate on a card that is not a shaker card.
The image is a digital stamp from Anita Be Stampin. By chance, I can't seem to find Anita Be Stampin on facebook, does anybody have their link? Whenever I click the F on their website it just takes me to my own fb site. Weird.

I'm going to be going into detail about how I made this card later in the week. Be sure to check back about that!

Don't forget, I'm having a fall sale in the shop right now! Use coupon code "Fallsale2011" to save some money and get cute greetings. :)

Welcome back everyone!

I’m really excited because I broke 180 fans on my facebook fan site. Wahoo! I’m still going for 200, so when I reach 200 I think I’ll have a giveaway. What should I give away? Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

Wow, have I got some great cards to share with you! I’ve been busy stamping and coloring and piecing items together for the upcoming holidays - Halloween and Dia de Los Muerte, which are probably my two favorite holidays of the year. I was so happy with how these cards turned out, I listed them in the shop before posting here about them.

I love this Día de los Muertos because it features one of my favorite sugar skull stamps from Bombshell stamps. It's altered with rhinestones and is handcolored.

I love this card because, again, it features a couple wonderful images from Bombshell stamps, one of my favorite companies, and has been hand-colored. I also used my Tattered Angels glimmer mist for the first time on this card to add glimmer to…
