There are still a few items left from the recent Magenta, Impression Obsession and Memory Box/PoppyStamps deliveries. More of the My Mind's Eye enamel dots that complement the Frightful paper collection will be in the store by Tuesday. And the special 17# Reich vellum paper recommended for Hasty Lace projects is enroute to the store right now.

This is an older posting from her blog, but I thought it was well worth posting here. Jennifer McGuire offers a video tutorial on a watercolor technique she used to make this beautiful card . . .

On the French Memory Box blog, Bibiana has made very clever use of Memory Box and PoppyStamp petal dies.

I also liked this card, also by Bibiana. You could use the design for other occasions and substitute the bats for birds, butterflies, foliage, flowers, etc.

Love this fall card . . . the colors, the die-cuts, the embossing, the overall design . . . all make for a very elegant look.

Virginia Lu shows how to use one of the new Penny Black stamps three different ways. This one is my favorite . . .

Over at Rubbermoon, Kae Pea used that cute little travel trailer stamp and accidentally made it into a pumpkin! Just proves we need to step outside the box once in a while and take another look at our stamps!


"See this stamp? It is a cute little trailer. Carved by me Kae Pea about 4 years ago. I love it and is a cute addition to anything travel themed...but LOOK again, turn it sideways and voila, you have a Halloween stamp too!! Unintentional when I created it but sorta cool and a good idea to look at your stamps in a whole new way!" -- Kae Pea

Oh my goodness! Our good friend and former Artist-of-the Month at Art 'n Soul posted this Zentangle Artwork on Facebook a while back . . .

We love it, Sherry!

That's all until tomorrow.
