New Product announcement!!

As you all know I LOVE using the "skittles" embellishments and i especially ADORE the altered ones I ordered from Sugar and Scraps. well i love them SO much i have decided to offer them on my site - check them out if you haven't seen them! Sugar and Scraps

and now for the next installment on my never-ending coaster album. The first sketch is from poetic artistry:

and the coaster:

So this is a pretty loose following of the sketch but i find i am occasionally a little limited....the technique junkies technique i used is artsy dimension. i really liked it alot more than i thought i would. In fact i promptly ordered more of Ranger's dimensional pearls and will be adding those to my inventory as well so look for them on my website soon! the Skittles used here are my most favorite - SUGARpops in Galactic Grape - they look good enough to eat!!

Next up is the sketch by MJ over at Technostamper:

And the coaster:

i really love this one. i may have to use this theme on more things! the technique used is a variation of the aged metal technique using alcohol ink and tin foil then embossing thru the cuttlebug (oh boy do i LOVE my cuttlebug!! Look for an exciting new announcement about that coming soon!) for the strip under the pic i used a bow and some skittles instead -these skittles have a sort of aged gold/green patina distressed look to them and just fit PERFECTLY with the background. i brayered the coaster with matching distress ink before attaching everything.

Have a stampin happy day!!!

    This isn't really a comment, but I wanted to let you know that the Studio G Series 13 stamps are showing up at AC Moore. I went to 2 AC Moores tonight and ended up finding 22 different stamps- not counting the blocks- so I might be missing 2 -I'm not sure. Here is a list of what I found to give you an idea of the set:
    4 w/pink background & brown top-prom/graduation
    3 w/clear background but purple with stars at the top-4th of july
    4 w/grey color with wedding
    1 w/orange top -your invited
    1 w/orange top- dog
    1 w/orange top- cat
    4 w/orange top-beachy/summer
    1 w/orange top - set of numbers
    2 w/orange top-upper case abcs
    1 w/orange top- lower case abcs
    Like I said I may be missing 2 but I don't know-these are the only ones I found. Just thought I would let you know.

  2. I swear I already commented on how wonderful both of these are. I love the technique you used on my sketch. Great job. Thanks for playing.
