I was really excited to be able to review the brand new line of alcohol based markers for Stampin’ Up called Blendabilities. Here’s my write up over on Craft Gossip:
One of the few remaining magazine devoted completely to rubber stamping is The Stamper’s Sampler. I recently posted a review of their latest Winter issue along with a card inspired by Tim Holtz, who is the featured artist. Click here to read my review over on Craft Gossip, including how to make my Tim inspired Valentine card, this is a great masculine style, perfect to give to the man in your life.
Here’s my second card entry for the C C Designs Summer contest. I used a mermaid and seal stamp set from Sweet November and some Astrobrights metallic papers for the backgrounds, her tail and the seal, they have a wonderful shimmer to them!

With the new Inkadinkado Stamping Gear tool. I recently did a review at Craft Gossip for this cool new stamping tool, click here to check it out.
Here’s a few of the projects I made with it:
Made some cute cards with my new Cricut Mini die cutting machine. I like this mini machine better than any of the other Cricuts I’ve tried. It hooks to your computer and it’s so much easier to see what you’re doing, change sizes and make adjustments on the computer screen.
I love this cool Bride of Frankenstein, she’s from the Movable Monsters collection.
This cute owl come from the Create a Critter cartridge, it has such adorable animals and accessories to go with them.

Been playing around with more new Halloween stamps from Inkadinkado.
I’m in love with the Voodoo Doll stamps, a cute witch and funky cat. I thought they’d make perfect shrink plastic charms so I stamped them on white shrink plastic using Staz-On ink, colored them with colored pencils, punched a hole for the jump rings and strung them on a chain. I also added a small domino with the word “Voodoo”.
This Death Head Moth stamp is spooky but also seemed a little vintage to me, like an insect specimen so I made a collage with a vintage feel with it. It’s on layers of pattern paper embellished with vintage lace, a vintage button and a chipboard label with brads.
This X-Ray of a Trick or Treat bag is just so evil! Along with the candy there is a razor blade in the apple, brass knuckles and a big knife. Probably not a stamp for everyone but I like twisted things so I think it’s really cool I added some poison labels cut from some pattern paper and added the color tinting with small sponges and ink.
K and Company that is I recently got an amazing box full of goodies from K and Co. to review at Craft Gossip from their brand new “Beyond Postmarks” line. It’s got a bunch of cool cards and embellishments that move, pull out, pop up, etc. really cool.
Here are the cards I made, quick and easy but so fun.
I think the rabbit pulled out of the hat is my fave
