Bombshell Stamps

 HI Everyone
Finally played with my Copics and a Bombshell Girl Stamp! I have to say, think this is one of my most favorite cards I've ever made! The Stamp is #2319 Girls Ruin ( I have in stock); paper and Chipboard embellishments are from Best Creation Rock Star Collection. I've still got some paper left, but the chip is sold out. I can however order it in for you if you need it. Which you do! LOL! Just ask! If your a Rockabilly, skull crafter, you NEED this chip board! A 12x12 Sheet of thick rockin' skull chip is only $3.75!

To Darn cute 2 B so Bad



Hi Everyone
Here is the other layout I made at the crop on Friday.  My layouts are not very layered, but I try to add a lot of details in other ways.  This layout was SO fun to make (and so me!) ! I started with a couple new papers I added to the shop, the bottom is by Autentique and the top layer, the bottle is bottle is by Moxie.  Love this sheet! I started with using a skull as a stencil (actually was the backing of a skull mirror sticker) and the Tim Holtz Blending Tool with Black Soot Distress Ink to ink up the page. Next I layered on the bottle paper, added Tim Holtz Tissue Tape on the top; then I highlights the bottles, and spider webs with a White Jelly Pen. I also cut out another bottle, coloured in the eyes and Glossy Accented them and the spiders, and witches.  Actually I used Black Stickles on the Spiders first, then Glossy Accents on looks totally cool! But my favorite embellishment on the page is that AMAZING Raven! I used my Ranger Melting Pot with Clear UTEE and a wee bit of Copper UTTE, I heated it up for awhile so the clear  "antiqued".  I dumped it all onto my Ranger Craft Sheet (#1 seller in my shop, ask me to show you it next time your in) 350 Degree  UTEE dumped onto it and NO damage to it or my wood counter! Anyhoo...dumped it and inked up my La Blanche Raven with Archival Ink and stamped ontop of the hot UTEE.  Crazy cool eh! Ask for a demo next time your in the shop.  The Melting Pot is one of my favorite tools, SO FUN! I have a few in stock still, if your interested pop in and I'll show you how to make this cool embellishment.

Etc Bo Bunny Line! FAB-U-LOUS!

 "The Best Kind of Brother is the kind that has the same DNA"
HI Everyone!
Sorry I've been neglecting my site, August has been extremely busy at The Inked Stamper (YAHOO!, I love my store).  I had a crop here on Friday night, and actually managed to make a couple layouts (thanks to Brianne and Kari who stayed till 1am so I could crack some out). The one I'm posting today is made with the NEW Bo Bunny Line, Et Cetera. And I must say I LOVE this line! The paper I used is from it, and also the key on my tag and the giant popped up ETC.  Now the paper is AWESOME on it's own, but it just wouldn't be "ME" if I didn't stamp on that is exactly what I did.  I used the Tim Holtz stamp set Rock Star, which is AMAZING! OHHH do I love this set! I'm such a nerd, but I totally did the seal clap and squealed when I was making this page playing with these stamps!  I took a close up so you can see all the handmade embellishments I did on this page.  First off is the tag: if you've ever been in my shop, you know I LOVE making embellishments with these Ranger Tags; this one is a blank manilla color, and they take a beating with ink and water and still look crisp and flat! I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks Tea Dye, Vintage Photo with the Distress Tool, and Barn door, and Archival Jet Black to stamp. I gave the key a patina with Alcohol Inks Aqua and Snow Cap. The first flower is just a rolly polly rose (cut a circle into a spiral and roll it up) and I inked it with Glimmer Mist. The next flower on the right is made with Tim Holtz Tissue tape, which I just attached to a circle card stock base and just keep feeding it on top of it by spinning until I got to the center; then I pressed it in  Ranger Perfect Medium Ink Pad and dusted on some Perfect Pearls.
Then with the same stamp set, I stamped around the edges of the paper with Barn Door and Black Soot Distress inks. Lastly the rectangle was a piece of chip board I dipped in the Melting Pot with Copper UTEE then while the embossing enamel was still hot I stamp with Archival ink a Tim Holz stamp from the Stuff to Say set. Lastly, I finished it all off with a little twirl of Tim Holtz Film strip Ribbon.

Kid's Camp Project

Hi Everyone
I have been SO swamped in the shop the past couple weeks with the garage sale..HUGE success...and expanding the store by adding 2 more racks and doubling the stock..and now with my 25% off Summer Sale! Phew..,busy and loving it! Thought I would quickly post the layout the Kid's made today at my drop off Kid's camp.   They got to stamp, use the Big Shot and Tim Holtz Texture Fades and Sanding tool with Core-dination Card Stock.  They also made a super cute Birthday card and learned how to paint with Smooth Glitter. This would make a GREAT birthday party project, if you have your child birthday coming up, let me know and you can make this page OR I can design another project for your child. Price varies/project. Contact me at the store for details.
FYI the paper and Embellishments are American Crafts Campy Trails, which are on my SUMMER SALE RACK for 25% off!
