Stamped Wedding Invitations at the Wedding Expo

Jenny and I were able to create really fresh wedding invitations, place cards, thank you notes, favor boxes, response cards, and more in a monstera motif. We used the medium and small monstera leaf, small and large monstera block, small monstera border, and large monstera panel stamps with kaleidacolor green multi color inkpad and a variety of fine and linen cardstock. Ben Franklin's ACUCUT and die collection was extremely helpful. I just LOVE the color palette!

Microscope slide pendants and magnets

Mike led Stampclub one eve when we were able to create collages between microscope slides. In this one, I used the Fish Stamp, and Vintage Hula girl stickers from our "Aloha from Hawaii" sticker line. On the back I used a few of our postage/cancellation stamps for a "black and white" look.

It's a little fuzzy, tho at least you can get the idea...

Another Bodacious Bangle Bracelet...

I'm soooo addicted! I ordered more blank bangles and went crazy. I painted over 100 with Luminarte's radiant rain daubers...sponging the paints on. A bit of Lumiere paints for a little texture and more bling. This batch o bracelets are chunkier and super yummy! I went all out...sizes sm-xl. Flat, domed, thin to super thick. LOVE them...
I used the Islamic Border stamp, one of my favorites, and finally clear coated the bracelet with Tripple Thick by DecoArt.
Had a hard time giving this one up. Sent 60 to The General Store Gallery & Gift Shop in Kilohana, Lihue Kauai.
