Just about anyone who knows me, knows that I love, love, love Penny Black rubber stamps. These pictures are 3 of their boards that were on display at the show. Robin and I did a really cute m/t at the PB booth also. (still need to take pics of the m/t's that we did) It is hard to tell, but there is Stickles on several of the samples on these boards --- ya just gotta love that glitter :)
On the bottom board, Elizabeth from Penny Black told us that she inked the bold word stamps with pigment ink (she uses VersaColor) and then went over the images with pearlescent Brilliance inks and then stamped them. They were rich with color and shimmer. I forgot to ask if she used a similar color or possibly just gold or silver over the VersaColor inks. Maybe, I should e-mail her.
The link to Penny Black is to the left if you want to check them out!

Just wanted to pop in and tell you that I am back up and running. Well sort of, I ended up losing all of my saved files when I changed out my hard drive. The only pics I had backed up to a disk were the CHA pics. Yeah! I am busy trying to find all of the great places that I used to stalk on a daily basis! Let me just say, my experience with Dell was much different when I was still under warranty than it was this time......................nuff said! Hang in there, I will put pics up tomorrow. Hugs to all, Melissa

Hi there! Just before we left for CHA, I started having problems with my computer. I called Dell and they have sent me the new parts (hard drive and more RAM) and they are going to call me and walk me through installing them. I don't want to upload all of the pictures and possibly loose them and have to do it again. YUK! I thought they were going to call this morning, but Jon said they are going to call tomorrow morning (the 14th). We took lots of pictures and bought lots of papers. We still have lots of orders to write. As Sharon would say, I was whining every time we walked away from a booth without placing an order. I just don't understand how come I can't "have it all" :) Hugs, melissa

Okay, so they are not ancient or anything but I did make them awhile back. The first one fits a #10 (letter size) envelope. The base card is black linen and then I layered with yellow dot cardstock from My Minds Eye (I think). The black print cardstocks are from Treehouse Memories. The bees are of course from Stampendous (aren't they cute?). I used a black glaze pen to give the bee's bodies a little shine. A little glitter glue on the wings, some ribbon and a tiny Jolee's flower and it was done.
This one I did awhile back for a three by three challenge we had at the store. You were to use 3 print papers/cardstocks from 3 different companies. My base card is Bazzill cardstock. The large blue/green floral print is from K & Co. , the smaller floral print is from SEI and the green mottled print is from My Minds Eye. The ribbon was from my friend Debbie and the green clipiola was in my stash. The "happy birthday" stamp is from Hero Arts.
On the homefront, We went to the "Christmas" party tonight for one of my jobs. It was a nice dinner complete with gifts for all. You see, one of my jobs is at our local department store so until the holidays pass and inventory is done, no partying for us! While we were at the party, it started snowing again. The satellite dish is covered, so no TV tonight. Thank goodness for my computer. I hope we don't loose power! TTFN!

ETA: Claire, please send your snail mail info to me at: email@example.com Claire! Claire said... I love to stamp because for me it lets me be creative and makes other people happy when family and friends receive my cards or crafts.It makes me happy when I am sad or mad. It makes me calm. I love being creative and stamping allows me to do that but also see how other people can be creative with the same stamp that I have. Claire, Please e-mail me with your snail addy and I will get your goodies mailed right out to you. If I don't hear from Claire by Tuesday Feb 5, I will pick another winner as I want to get this package mailed before I leave for CHA. Thanks to everyone for posting comments and subscribing. I really appreciate it. Hugs, Melissa
