    Happy Accidents, New Rubber Stamps, Birds & Bees SALE!

    Filed under Art Projects, Back in Stock, Giveaways, Newsletters, Rubber Stamps, Sale, Shannon Cooper

    Wow! This is so fun and colorful and I love the unexpected way the new fancy frame fit over the oval window… I’ll let Shannon explain:

    This piece started with a new set of beautiful stamps that include butterflies of various sizes, suns, moons, and several words and phrases. They are all small, the largest being 3″ x 1-3/4″, so they would work well with ATCs and art coins. They’re really pretty too.

    I took these stamps in hand and dug around in my stash of things, finding a cool tent card from last month’s kit buried in a stack of chipboard (it is literally 3″ high. I gotta get this pile organized). Then I went rifling through the box of new stuff to see what to coordinate with the aforementioned stuff and found the new fancy Lace Frame. It happened to fit perfectly over the cutout on my oval Tent Card. That was a nice surprise.

    There are four different butterfly stamps in the set. The two I used, which are the smallest of the butterflies, are 1/2″ and not quite 1″ long. They were stamped and embossed, cut out, folded a bit, then glued onto the card. There’s small pieces of foam under a few to vary the height and give dimension.

    More info and photos are in Shannon’s blog post.
