Topflight Stamps - Funky Insect Birthday

Hi Everyone,

Of course I had to have this funky insect set from Elena Zinski art, available through PaperArtsy at Topflight Stamps. They are just so quirky and cute!

I used an ancient embossing plate (Papertrey) for my background. I die cut some irregular shapes and frames and stamped the insects. i colored them with water brush pens. I used this very versatile birthday sentiment strip from Darkroom Door Stamps for the sentiments. I just inked up the whole strip with Versamark and heat embossed it in white. Cut it in parts and used what fit.

Here are the stamp supplies I used:

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey.

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!

Or you can see the same thing on my photo tutorial. With mirror
