Proof: I Still Craft

You would think that with all this time at home I would craft all the time.
I mean I have an entire room of crap.
But it's funny how when you have time to do it is sometimes when you are the least inspired to do it.
Kinda like when you are at the mall with no money, you find all kinds of things you want to buy.
When you actually have money and need to find that dress for your cousins wedding, you're not able or willing to find a thing.

Since I get emails from people asking me if I am teaching anywhere or advice on their current project, I finally got my butt into the local stamp store to see if they had any use for a pro-paper matcher.
So, I designed these cards and a few more for their classes and store samples.
I remember crafting being so simple but this was a chore when I started.
I was so outta the swing of things.
It was like I forgot how to ink a stamp.
But I think they came out great and Stampology and their customers seem to like them, so it all worked out.
I used new Hero Arts Stamps for all of these samples.
All the patterned paper is by Hot Off The Press, it's the Vintage Roses Collection.

I love this one, that flower is stamped on felt with white StazOn ink.

These were created with the Scor-buddy as well for those embossed backgrounds, love that.

This is probably my favorite of the whole batch.
I used the clear packaging that the stamps come in to make a window that was stamped in white StazOn.
I also made that little paper flower.

And these sunset backgrounds were great for the silhouette stamps.
This one was done with the Copic Airbrush system.

And this one was done with just dye inks and sponges.
The image was first stamped in Versamark and embossed with clear powder for the resist technique.

Well, at least I can say I made something in 2011.
I also have plans to attend this crop in March for MS, Crop For A Cause.
If you would like to sit at my table and do more talking than crafting let me know, the more the merrier.
It's a great cause with great prizes and I would love to fill a whole table.
