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!
