I think this year’s Stampaway was over all good. I’ve been at this awhile so some things seemed repetitious to me; Like Outlines’ booth mostly devoted to the stamping jewelry; but hey if it sells by all means sell it. What was new for me was being able to get some dies from Europe. I bought 2 butterflies and an Oval set made by Marianne and Nellie Snelling, in the Sweet Stamps booth. Learned that there are 67 Cover-a-card stamps by Impression Obsession and they sold out of a lot of them this show. Found a Miles Davis stamp in DP ARTworks; but some how over looked two tribal ones that a friend bought. Lucky for me she brought them over when she came to play on Monday!
I bought stamps from Loralie Designs and her booth was fabulous.
These are a few photos from the samples in her booth.
Here is what I did with Her Lazy Fairy stamp I was playing with:
Her stamps have such “attitude”. Teresa said they are sassy and they sure are!
Teresa came from Atlanta and while here showed me a technique with napkins, I used it for the floral elements with the fairy. Below I used a napkin as the background for the new die from Our Daily Bread and their stamps
This one includes one of the oval dies from Nellie Snelling. I have not finished this one yet.
Thanks to all my friends especially Rena, Bonnie, Teresa and Pat Hobson who made Stampaway much more of a blast!
It’s All Good!
