Sunflower Sweetheart

Hi Friends and Stampers,

It's a new Holly-Day Monday and I am here to show you some stampy inspiration today.

Oh My Gosh I love this stamp set and I plan to use it again and again. I went ahead and bought the matchy dies to go with. Now normally I do not mind fussy cutting, but I liked the dies that went with it and had some 3D in mind when I bought them. I did not pop anything up here, but I did decide to go ahead and use the dies.....LOVE!!! I cut out using the dies first. Then I applied my stamp on an acrylic block and put a scrap piece of black under the cut out on the foam pad that I stamp on, so I could see the outline better.....JEEZ, so much easier to see right where to stamp.

I'm also still crazy about the Candi Dots. I used Icing, (white) and colored with my E09 Copic Marker. I didn't have to scramble around looking for that perfect colored brad, I just had to color my Candi Dot the perfect color. I like them because they still leave shimmer even though I colored them.

As you can tell, I am so ready for fall! It's been 107 here for a while and everytime we go out of the house to do anything, it seems to suck the life out of us, lol. I went into the stashy hoarded stuff and pulled out this paper pad. I knew it would be perfect for her.

Have you seen all the wonderful yummy NEW ITEMS that Laura has added to the Loves Rubberstamps Store? I went shopping TWICE!!!! She might have to kick me off the team just to have stuff left for her customers, lol.

I also want to remind you that you have today to finish up your Challenge Projects for the current Loves Rubberstamps Challenge - buttons and bows. We start a New Challenge tomorrow, so you definetly do not want to miss out on that either. Oh and you still have all week to Blog Hop on our Sunday Sensational Blog Hop. We pick a name for the monthly drawing each week and then a winner each month. We just picked a winner yesterday and Heidi won a store voucher for $20.00!!! That would pay for the Sunflower Sweetheart stamp set with some money to spare!

I hope you all have a great week!


Playing in this weeks MFT Sketch Challenge.
