This weekend I stamped all day on Sunday, so I have tons of new stuff to show you. I made a TON of Hanna samples with the new set that will be released on January 4th! But I can't post any until this Monday! DANG! I DON'T KNOW IF I CAN HOLD OFF THAT LONG! I'm not very good at keeping secrets! Ok. So we'll do Elzybells instead. I'm re-naming them LZ-bells because I'm now addicted to these sweet little girlies. Friend HB scored this one at Crafts Direct (St Cloud, MN) for me with a 50 percent off coupon. I LOVE COUPONS! I'm not sure who sells these online so I don't have links for you, but A Muse reps them so I'm sure your local A Muse retailer will have them. This is a PERFECT winter stamp because you can use fun bright colors with her & it doesn't look odd. On these cards I am using up some old My Mind's eye papers, and some Daisy D's snowflake paper from their "Snowflakes & Holly" line. They are colored in with copic markers & I added small pink buttons everywhere. The "Hello good friend" stamp was sent to me from sweet blogger Michelle Kovack. (Studio G).
I also have to show you my Pottery Barn score. All of their Christmas ornaments went 50 percent off today, so I ran at lunch and scored some of these vintage glass glitter birds that I've been eyeing for weeks. They look so cute in a nest of vintage ornaments! I also scored some vintage mercury glass ornaments...regularly $16.00, now $7.99. They go perfectly with vintage ornaments. You get 12 of them in a box, for $7.99! It's a great way to get cheap filler ornaments if you don't have a big collection of vintage ones yet. These are new, but they coordinate perfectly with older glass ornaments. I will put these away for next year's decorating, and keep an eye out next summer when junking season hits for more old ornaments with that pretty shabby patina that I love so much.
Hope you're all getting stamping time in this week! L.
