Happy Middle of the Week!
Hi All –
Happy Wednesday! We’re half way through the work week – yay!
Today is a special day as it’s my wonderful hubby’s Birthday! I wanted to share with you the very sexy, sassy card that I made for his special day.
For this card I used a digi image from Sassy Studio Designs and she is called Curvy Lingerie Sassy.
The stamp on the left with the hummingbird is called Anneli and the stamp on the right is called Catrina.
These are the very first Bloom Girl stamps I’ve purchased. I was actually shocked by the size of these stamps. Anneli measures 5 3/4″ x 7″ and Catrina measures approx 6 x 7″. So if your used to using the smaller stamps, a word to the wise, these are big, big stamps. As you may be able to tell from the picture, my largest clear stamp block measures 6 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ so the stamps are a bit bigger than my stamp block. I’ve seen a lot of very cool mixed media done with the Bloom Girl stamps. I’m going to play a bit with them and see what kind of trouble I can get into. Although, as my husband suggested, I could always stamp it with black ink and then scan the image and scale it down to put it on a card if I wanted. That is always an option. Never be afraid to try something new as I always say. Hopefully I’ll have something cool to show you with these stamps very soon. Stay tuned.
The other two items I wanted to share are also stamps. The first one is from Kenny K. It’s called Teen Style. I admit I don’t have kids, but I couldn’t get over how cute the girl in this set was dressed and figured I’d be able to put her on some sort of card. For those of you not familiar with Kenny K, he has a line of digi stamps on his website at KennyK Downloads.com. He’s got a pretty wide variety of digital stamps available for sale. He also sells a limited number of clear polymer stamps on KennyK Stamps.com for those of you that like to have the actual stamp in hand (like me).
And lastly I got this cutie from Saturated Canary called Cocoa. I hadn’t seen her before and thought she might make a good warm and fuzzy card for this crazy winter we’re having.
Well that’s my happy mail for this week. Not too shabby, huh?
I’d like to start sharing with you what projects, crafts, classes I’m working on with each of my blog posts. I feel like it’s always good to be thinking and planning ahead and having something to look forward to in our daily grind. For me crafting, coloring and learning new skills is a great outlet for stress.
So what am I working on?
1. Finishing organizing my dies and labeling them so that I can put them into something resembling order.
2. Working on my Copic Skin & Hair class I’m taking over at Kit & Clowder online. If you are interested in learning the full potential of your Copic markers I highly recommend taking one of the classes there. You will learn so much from the classes there.
3. I’ll be working on a birthday card & a get well card for my Father-in-Law who will be going in for surgery on 3/16. His birthday is on 3/17 ironically. We’re praying that everything comes out OK for him.
That’s my crafty To Do List for the upcoming week.
Hope you all have a Krafty week!
