This is just a quick post to let you know that I wrote a soldering tutorial on this piece for Ellen Hutson's In Touch blog, and you can find it here. Actual size of the piece is about 1-1/4", and the focal image is the Lockhart Itty Bitty Lavender stamp. If you receive Ellen's newsletter, you will find at the bottom a coupon for 10% off of all of the Simply Swank soldering supplies that she carries. If you don't receive the newsletter and would like to, go to her home page here, scroll to the bottom, and sign up.
Just as "green stamps," here is an inchie notecard that I made the other day when I was trying out one of Ellen's new Spellbinders dies, the S4 165 Pinking Pierceability. This was a fun die! I decided that I needed to order a smaller piercing tool than I usually use. When I get back from CHA, I should have that smaller tool and can play with these edge dies a bit more. This inchie image is from the Lockhart Roses and Daisies Floral Couture line, and the gem is a Light Sapphire Swarovski Crystal. Card base is a pale blue Arturo notecard--similar to a Fabriano, if you've used that, but these come in colors too. The ribbon is a May Arts white silk ribbon.
Well, I'm still working on samples to take with me, and I haven't packed yet. . . Wish me luck, and I'll try to share some CHA glimpses with you over the next few days!
P.S. Do you have a Just Rite Stamper? Check out this blog to see some of the new outfits that your JSR could be sporting after CHA! I am excited in particular over a new font that I unashamedly begged for, the Brayton font, shown here. (Hint: It reminds me of my favorite catalog for color ideas!)
