More Mega Madness — CHA report

Another report from CHA…

One of the joys of attending the Craft & Hobby Association trade show is discovering new (to me!) stamp companies.

Take a look at the delightful designs of Dare 2B Artzy:

I love coloring and doodling (can you say Zentangle addict?) so these flower/butterfly images speak to me. I was just playing around and stamped these images in VersaFine black on a piece of scrap cardstock. (See the full flower? I stamped once then reinked and turned the card so I stamped a mirror image to create the fuller flower.) I found it so relaxing to color in the patterns (not my best coloring work, but I had fun.)

I really like this bookmark image. This would have been a fun project for my Girl Scout troop!

Thanks Dare 2B Artzy, for letting me play with these stamps!

Fabulous Finds Friday — To Die For

I am now addicted to dies. I love dies that are so delicate I could never cut them myself, I love dies that match stamps, I love dies that let me cut multiples of something…I love dies!

Here’s a pretty one from Penny Black stamps:

The daisy die is called Bashful. The sentiment is also from Penny Black. The background paper is an old one from The Robins Nest (I distressed the edges then added yellow ink) and the daisy chain ribbon is from Making Memories.

Thanks for stopping by!
