How on Earth..... it the middle of October already.  I was so positive I was going to be better at posting this year, but life got in the way.  We ended up moving our store yet again and that took months of extra work before, during and after the move.  So here we are mid October and I finally have a little crafting time.  Hopefully I will be able to spend more time in my craft studio over the next few months.  I will endeavor to update my blog as I go. 

I did pick up a bunch of new craft supplies this year, I have made a few things and I will try and post the older projects over the next few weeks. 

You will notice in my last post from way back in January that I am really loving the stamps from Kindred Stamps!  I did buy quite a few more sets this year and I finally got a chance to make a card with some of them. 

When I get new sets, I tend to stamp a bunch of the images out and color the images in while watching TV.  I cut the images out and then make cards with them.

Here is the first card I made using the Bursting Love stamp set.   I stamped the images with Memento tuxedo black ink and colored them with copic markers.  The back ground panel was made with the the Tim Holtz 3d texture fade embossing Folder "Foundry" and several inks (distress inks pumice stone, & hickory smoke, memento london fog, prima tin can & encore silver metallic)  the additional strip was a small piece cut from another texture fade panel (colored with the same inks) but this one is called "Mechanics" and I added a few black rhinestones. 

Guess that's about it for this post.  Will attempt to be back with more in a few days! (fingers crossed 😊)

Happy New Year!

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season!  We have been super busy at the store, so I haven't had much time for crafting and now we are doing inventory!!!  I did buy myself some new stamps for Christmas and I have been doing a bit of coloring.  All the stamps I bought are from Kindred Stamps and I can't wait to get some projects made from these.  I just love all of their stamps, I have well over a dozen stamps sets and probably 30 more on my wish list.

So here are a couple of pics of my stamp haul and some coloring I have been working on.  I also got the Limited Edition Space Heroes mystery box. You can see a couple of the stamps you would get in that set in the picture below.  I'm not posting a full picture of what's in the Mystery box because it's a mystery until you get it 😊

 Plus I got all these awesome stamp sets!
 Here are some of the characters I had before and I have made a few cards with some of these.
I will post a few of them another day!
