Orders and more orders

We just returned from an all-too-short vacation to find several orders awaiting my efforts. I have mixed the orders based on type rather than by company. I have others to process, but I won't get to those for a day or two. In the meantime, please check these out and e-mail me at if you would like something set aside for you to pick up or if you would like it shipped to you. My husband, Paul, loves to do his shipping and handling job.

Here is the first photo of a few of the items received:
 The first wood mounted stamp on your left is from Stampers Anonymous. It is called Mesh. I fell in love with this background stamp at CHA because it can be used for any look. The other two wood-mounted stamps are from Penny Black. The middle stamp is called First Dance and is a wonderful brush stroke lily stamp. It stamps beautifully. The last one on your right is a solid stamp which is great for those simple cards. It is called Ebullient which means cheerful and full of energy.

 All of these cling stamps are from Penny Black. The first on your left is called Gentle Whisper and is just that. It is a lovely orchid and is so pretty in pastel colors. The next is Pure Iris which accepts bolder colors for a striking look. The Sweetest Sound is the stamp in the middle. What surprised me about that stamp is the ability to place it at two different angles on your card for a similar yet different look. Then Pop Pop Poppy will just jump off your card when colored with some bright colors. Then the last one is called Divine for those of you who like to color, possibly using your Copic or other alcohol-based markers. Of course, don't limit yourself to just those, try some Silks or Twinkling H2O's or Gelatos or Viva Inka Gold or... the list goes on.

The picture below was a little blurred in the group picture so I split them out. These are just gorgeous stamps with matching dies for the birds and flower branches called Birds and Blooms from Heartfelt Creations. These can be used in multiple ways which makes purchasing this set a very, very good deal.

 Here are a few dies from Impression Obsession and Penny Black. The IO die is called Open Scroll Butterfly. Isn't it just beautiful? Then there are Framed Fern (top), Sun Fire (bottom) and Flower Frolic (right). Sun Fire goes with the First Dance stamp from above. Off to the right you will see White covered Scratch Art paper. This is such a fun thing to use! Use a stamp to stamp your image and then scratch off the white coating to uncover multiple colors. You can't pick what colors you will get! It's just a serendipitous technique. Your kids and grandkids will love this, too! It's a fun paper for all ages!

 Speaking of paper, here are 3 new packs of cardstock that just arrived. The Gold Pearl Linen Metalllic is a soft gold with a little texture. The So...Silk Fair Blue is more brilliant in person. You have to feel this cardstock to appreciate the Silk in the name. It's such a silky smooth cardstock. Just lovely! Then for you mirricard lovers, I have been out of Gold Mirricard for some time. Now's your chance to replenish your stash.
