Watch me get fabulous - So Suzy Stamps snark

Who is ready for some snark from the latest So Suzy Stamps release? When I saw the “Watch me get fabulous” stamp I had to giggle quite a bit. Haven’t we all been in that situation at one point?

The Ton background stamp colored with Distress Oxide and Inks

Hi everyone and happy Thursday! Today’s project was inspired by my little grab bag that is sitting on my craft table. You might wonder what that grab bag is… Well, it’s actually a box now and it contains all the goodies that I have bought during the last months (yes, months…) and haven’t really used yet. So I decided to pick the sunflower background stamp from the Ton and get it all inky (like literally). I ended up with three floral cards, all a little different. I created all three at the same time and started with stamping the image …

Make a wish art journal page with Art Anthology and Tim Holtz

I’m back at the Art Anthology blog, today with a “make a wish” art journal page. This was one of those pages where I just started and at first didn’t know where it will go.
