Super Cute Raisin Boat!

A couple of weeks ago the Mesa Stamp Show came to town, and I go every year thinking I have enough stamps, and inks, and embossing folders and dies.  But I better go, just to make certain of that.  Sure enough, I usually discover something I've missed in past searches.  That ever happen to you?

This time, I discovered a new vendor to the show!  Of course, it was just as the show was closing and I was headed out the doors!  GAH!!  I'm not a good shopper under pressure.  I end up buying it ALL OF THE THINGS!  And yes, I came away with three of their stamps sets and many of the supplies needed to use said stamp sets.  But c'mon.  Raisin Boat?  How could I not??  SO cute!

The following week was Stamp Club and I needed to make and bring 8-10 cards for our exchange.  Obviously they needed to be created using my new faves.  The theme was "jump for joy" and I decided the "pop"corn set fit the criteria, even if loosely.  

I made a few each of these three designs.  What I love most is how great they look in such a quick and simple format!  The MOST fun though, is the puff paint.  I haven't used this stuff since making kids' tshirts back in 1988 (or so) and had totally forgotten it's existence.  You apply it, let it dry overnight and then use a heat gun the next day to "puff" it up!  I used Copics to color both the images and the popcorn.

 The stamp sets each have 3-4 images and about a dozen sentiments to go with.  This root beer float was part of the popcorn set.  
Thank goodness for new discoveries, right??

Thanks for stopping by today!
