Yeay! Whining really pays off...

Yep, I'm taking the day off on Tuesday... now I can CUT OUT MY BRAND SPANKING NEW STAMPS!! I came home tonight to a couple of Priority Mail lovelies :)

{squealing with utter giddiness}

Oh what will I use first?! Funny Farm?
Summer Boys? Oh... maybe Spunky Sprite Boys? Maybe go the whole grown up tailored look with Victorian Elements or Aged Ornaments... or maybe...


... stop it!

How about some more design call submissions...

On to tonight's show! :) First up, Penelope Forever Love:

Stamps: F
orever Family & Go Abroad

Penelope SWIC & Cardstock

Claret , Violette & Burnt Umber Palettes, VersaMark

Penelope Ribbon, Transcendence EP, Pop Dots, staples

All of the roughed-up edges for this one were done with my fing
ernail. I embossed the sentiment, and it really gives a nice sheen. The "LOVE" & heart are also popped up. I tried to work outside the color box from the usual lovey-dovey cards.

Next up, definitely a dude card... Pimp-My-Ride Anniversary :)

Stamps: Cars, Trendy Greetings

Paper: Winchester SWIC & Cardstock

Noir Palette

Other: VersaMarker, Pewter Hardware, Pop Dots

I used the VersaMarker to create a very subtle shadow line under the car. And this baby was definitely distressed with a tool!

OH! Check this! All of The Angel Company's discontinued accessories from the last catalogue are ON SALE!! Yep, 25% off! You can either order directly from my online store, or email me (see sidebar) your order & you can get in on Customer or possibly Hostess Benefits!! Ask me how :) Supplies are limited so hurry!

can't wait to see what you do with the new rubbah! :) I will hopefully get some soon too and maybe your stamping mojo will rub off on my lazy-butt stampin' mojo which seems to have gone "on holiday" since seminar. :)
