Color Your Stamps with Copics

Hey fellow stampers, when I first began stamping I was to to never get rubbing alcohol near my rubbah. Well, Gina K. has come up with a tutorial on Coloring with Copic markers directly on your stamps, then use a mini mister with rubbing alcohol to rehydrate the ink, It works great, and my stamp came completely clean afterwards. Go ahead give it a try!!

Celebrating MFT day

Today is Celebrate MFT Day on SCS. Luckily I got my first order from them today. To celebrate MFT day you have to make a card using MFT stamps and post it an your blog/SCS. I plan on making more for my co-workers as were going through a lot of change at work and everyone is stressed.

Manly Birthday Cards

I always seem to make the same type of card. Now I'm trying to get away from the flowers and create something for all those guys out there who will smile nicely and say thank you. A card just for them. Here I have used golfafella and beerafella, from stamping Bella to create a card, just for the guys. I also have fixafella and grillafella so there's a card for all those guys. Personally, I bought beerafella, because it reminds me of my dad, so I used it to make a card for him. Golfafella reminds me of my FIL, Bill. He loves to golf, so his card will have golfafella. Thanks for looking!! Please leave a comment on what you think. Cheers Susan

Well I've been really busy for the past few days. I moved out of the basement, and into the unused diningroom. Here's a pic of my new space. I've also been working on my new online store My Paper Dreamz Here I sell my overstock of my creations, I have hundreds of cards, and hope to have many in my shop very soon, so why not hop on over and have a look. Stampingly, Susan

Another day another Bella. Today I decided to play with some Bellas. Mwahabella was up first, as she reminds me of my DD Emily. I used some papers and ribbon given to me by my BFF Cindy. Using Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery cardstock from SU! Her outfit is paper pieced her outfit and colored the rest with art pencils. I added a couple of Bella baubles, and a fun flower. She's so cute.
