I have a couple of things to share with you today! My stamping buddy Valerie Stangle sent me some super-cute stickers--not paper but a raised slick surface like plastic. I finally had a few minutes to play with these last night after everyone else went to bed. I certainly didn't come up with anything as cool as Valerie did! But I still had fun with them. Paper is Basic Grey Romani/Gypsy collection. Sentiment is from PaperTrey Green Thumb set. I used my SU cutter to freehand the swirl across the paper, and I zig-zag stitched the layers on my sewing machine. Thanks, Val!
Next I have a Polka Dotted butterfly (Lockhart) which I paired with some Jen Wilson paper from my Sayner excursion a few weeks back. The trail of the butterfly was stamped in Sahara Sand, then pierced. I love Nicole's Little Lady trail as a piercing template! The "ascend" is run through a label maker and inked with a vanilla craft pad. The butterfly is colored in Prismacolor pencils (Deco Blue, Blush Pink, and Pink) and dotted with Stardust Stickles. Eyelets are SU Soft Subtles eyelets (Blush). Punch is a Marvy Mega Scalloped Circle.
Speaking of Marvy punches, several of you have asked through the months where to get them since the superstores seem to be out of them frequently. Tomorrow is your chance! PaperTrey Ink will begin a preorder for all of the Marvy Scalloped shaped punches, even the new shapes, as far as I understand. In SU news, I'm guessing that I'll be up at midnight MST to preorder some new colors and stamps. Anybody else?
Have a lovely day!
