It's hard to believe that it's time to start thinking about the holidays!! I've been digging into some of my Christmas stamps so I can have a stash of cards ready to go by the time Christmas actually sneaks up on me!! American Art Stamp has a fantastic collection of unmounted Christmas and Holiday sets that are all ready to go with mulitple images and sentiments. I love the whimsical look of Karen Stolper's stick people - they're almost magical!!
This image was stamped on patterned paper and colored in with Prisma Pencils. The snowflake and ground were decorated with dazzling diamonds glitter, then sparkly snowflake sequins were adhered with pop dots.
Thanks for looking!!

As soon as August hits I'm looking forward to Fall and Halloween! This stamp is from American Art Stamp's Halloween 1 set which features 2 images and 3 sentiments.
The main image was stamped on a mustard colored paper scrap from K&Company. I colored the image with Prisma Pencils then sponged and sewed the edges. The striped paper and purple ribbon is being sold by My Favorite Things. The sentiment frame was filled with liquid embossing fluid for a glassy look (hard to see in the pic).
Thanks for looking and please take a peek at all the new stuff on the American Art Stamp site!

Halloween cards are one of my favorite things to make... I especially love the whimsical look to the Karen Stolper images! The new Halloween 1 and Halloween 2 sets from AAS make Halloween projects a breeze!!
Here is a stamp from the new *cling thing* line called Halloween2. The image is by Karen Stolper and sentiment by Kathleene Callei. I colored the image using a blender pen and reinkers in Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss and Basic Gray. The patterned paper is from Basic Grey's Scarlett's Letter collection.

This image is designed by Karen Stolper for American Art Stamp. She is stamped in black archival ink and colored with Copics.
I used some Dried Marigold and Old Paper to distress the edges of the circle.
The shapes were cut out using nestabilities and the sentiment is from Hero Arts.
