Have you heard of Altenew?

Altenew is a turning two years old.  They have the most stunning stamps and incorporate color layering into some of their sets  Sometimes I want to make cards but don’t have time to color so I use the color layering stamps.  Most sets include the outline images and the layering images so you can either color them, color layer them or even watercolor them.  If you go to the Altenew page on Facebook you may participate in their blog hop going on all weekend.  There are lots of prizes to be won so head over there and check it out.  Don’t forget to leave a comment at every stop along the hop.

This card was made by Tasmin Ahmed using the peony bouquet stamp set.  


Another one of my favorite sets is called Painted Butterflies, pictured here in a card posted on the Altenew website


They are absolutely my favorite stamps.  Keep your eye on this company too.  There will be new stamps coming.  They also sell inks in matching colors to make layering even easier.

If you would like to see these stamps offered at Scrapmania.  Let Stacy know you would like her to carry them!

Think Spring Bunnies Card

Everybody in my Copic Expand class wanted to use this Whimsy Stamp for a class. This is an easel style card that I hadn’t done before. The paper is from the springtime line from Moxxie. I used flower soft on the bunny tails.
The banners are from a set by Taylored Expressions that we got at the store.
I airbrushed the background. The BG10 was a perfect match with the paper.
Colors used for bunnies: E33, E35, E37 and C2, C3 and C4
Grass: YG03, YG05, YG07
Flowers: RV52, RV55
Sign: YG63, YG65

Have a great weekend. Classes may be postponed on February 1st due to snow? We will probably be doing this card on February 8th. If you are interested in sitting in on this class please call Scrapmania to sign up. Materials fee is $3.50

Hello everyone

Hi, I wanted to let you all know of some stuff I got going on. I was in the hospital last Wednesday. I got discharged on Friday evening. There is a lot of things out of whack in my system. My thyroid was high, my potassium was low, my lipids were high, I have an inner ear infection and my blood pressure was through the roof (208/137).
I’m on the mend but still not up to 100%. This will take time. I had to cancel some classes but I am doing whatever I can to put this behind me.
I am sure that within a few weeks I will be better than ever. Let me know if I can answer any questions for you. My number is 294-5557.
Also, I wanted to let you know that Stacy got the cutest house mouse stamps for the store, we will be using a couple of them in the weeks to come. Check them out if you get a chance.

FYI shipment of Saturated Canary stamps came in

Hello everyone, I’m very excited to tell you that Stacy got the saturated canary stamps into the store. I’m thinking they will be very popular. I will include some photos so you can see which one you want. Don’t worry though, there are more on the way.
