Orange and Turquoise ATC swap


This was for the Orange and Turquoise ATC swap on Twisted Chick http://twisted-chick.blogspot.com/
The stamp is Lizzie Anne http://lizzieannedesigns.com/. The gold sheen is not my flash it's the paper. This is a very thick cardstock called iced gold. It really adds a nice iridescence. Make a wish is Papertrey http://www.papertreyink.com/. And the grass is from Clear Art Stamps http://www.clearartstamps.com/. The star on the wand is A Muse http://www.amuseartstamps.com/.

Let's Eat Out ATC Swap

I found this stamp at a scrapbook store rummage sale. It's PSX, but I know nothing else about it. I loved it as soon as I saw it, I think I paid $3 or $4 for it (sweet). I knew I wanted to use liquid applique for the popcorn immediately. The background popcorn is a whole other story. I thought a small popcorn stamp would be cute, but try to find a tiny kernel of popcorn stamp. This is actually a flower border out of one of the $1 bin clear stamp sets. I colored them in with white souffle pen. It took so much ink I ran out and end up painting some with acrylic paint. The butter on top is yellow glaze pen. It really looks like melted butter. I gave it some Spica pen glitter highlights and pooped it up with pop dots. I made 22 of these for a swap online and one I'm going to this week. I'm so glad to be done!

Sushi - A Muse




Arigato!
I made this for my shoe box swap group. I'm going to use it again for the A Muse addict swap this month, but no cute charm. (I don't have any more, but I got them from Stamping Bella.) The color of the card is more salmon than it looks in the picture. I colored it in with my new Copics from Hanna Stamps. I used the Basic set for the whole thing. I can't wait to get the spring in summer set (wish list).
