Hello Bot!

Where did this week go??? I have no idea! Actually I do know… I have been diligently listing things from my scrapbooking store (which I sadly had to close in May) up in the Barter Bin on Smeared & Smudged. Our leader Terra, has been kind enough to let us all post things we’d like to buy/sell/ trade from the stamping world. So naturally, I jumped at the chance! Wanna take a peek at what we all have to offer??? There are some MONSTER deals!!! But, you’ve gotta join Smeared and Smudged first! We are a group that is dedicated to gothic, vintage, fantasy, and other wacky-cool topics in the stamping world. Love Bombshells? You belong with us. Edward Gorey? Come join the party! Then, you can take a peek at the awesome stuff we are selling!!!

But on to today’s project… I was rifling through some of the clear stamps that I’m selling, and I came across Bam Pop! Have you seen them??? They have clear stamps, paper, original artwork, even some ltd. stuffed toys! I LOVE their stuff! Put it this way, if a company uses the word “rad” on any of they’re products, they are fab in my book!!!

Meet “Hello Bot.” He’s kind of Bam Pop’s! mascot. I love this little guy. I have a few stamps with him… He’s just so sweet! I turned this card out pretty quickly. Nothing too fancy here, just a funky combination of papers and a few stamps.

He’s embossed in Platinum and his heart is colored in with Sakura’s Glaze Pens. The sentiment and stars are from Technique Tuesday. Paper from American Crafts, Prism and EK Success. I down lighted my robot with EK’s watercolor markers.

That’s about it! Quick and simple, but really cheery! Have a rad weekend!!!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
