Stampaway My take

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!

OMG!!! You were at the CHA?!!! I was there too and I would have loved to have met you!!!

I visited her booth too and purchased several of her stamps; I can't wait to use them! And, she did have a great booth -- I just feel in love with how she dressed up and used the stamps. I'll definitely be "lifting" her ideas! LOL!

I really hate I didn't get an opportunity to meet you; hopefully next time.

Hi, Pam. I've posted your sampler embroidery project and I'll be mailing it out to you before the weekend! Hope you like it! I normally love embroidering items but I'm not a skilled sewer; overall, I think it looks pretty good!
