Retro Rock Out!

Hi All
For those of you who know me, you know I was born in the wrong era, I would have love to have grown up in the 50's! I'd rock a swing dress, the poodle skirt and the whole nine yards every day!  This is my throw back to the Retro's; I love all the new Retro lines out right now.  On this Layout I have Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue, Echo Park Happy Days and the polka dot paper is Crate Paper Emma's Shoppe.  I had a lot of fun with this layout! And the Cherries are literally the 'cherry on the cake" for me on this page! These are Kaiser Craft wood Cherries;
  • first I inked them up with Distress ink,
  • next I put a layer of Glossy Accents
  • Then I dumped Fire Red Glitter Ritz on top and just left them until dry (don't cheat, let them dry!)
  • Once dry, dump off excess glitter, and put another top coat of Glossy Accents. Seriously they are so poofy fantastic on this page! It reminds me of the Sparkle Red Vinyl from the 50's on the chairs in diner's and in cars; you know what I mean? LOVE IT!

Back to School Vintage Style

HI Everyone
I had a lot of fun making this Layout! I was scrappin' with some fabulous gal's from Scrapbookers Cottage out in Spruce Grove, and the mojo was flowing think between the 3 of us.   Now the main technique on this page is the paper piecing.  I used the G45 ABC Primer Collection, 2 sheets of each and just chopped my image up, colored it with Distess Inks and Ranger Cut n' Dry Nibs.   I LOVE it! The layers and texture it gives to the layout is AMAZING! IT literally POPS off the page.  Everything is either TH  Rock Crackled, Glossy Accented or Crackle Accented! The page is so tactile in person, it looks fabulous!  Lots of Distress Ink, Bo Bunny Embellishment, AC Twine,  Tim Holtz Mini Fastener (aka tiny stapler), TH"Stuff to Say" Stamp set and a bit of UTEE to add the extra shine!

The support for the store has been fantastic, and I hope it keeps growing.  I want to be able to offer you the BEST possible store I can which mean I need to spread the word that The Inked Stamper is OPEN!  I have run Ad's in the local paper, in Canadian Scrapbooker, Scrapbooking  and Cards Today, on Kijiji, I have a Facebook Store page and on here my web site.  I'll be having an Ad coming out soon in the Edmonton and Area Hockey Newsletter.  But I still need more.  Out of all of these ad's, the best one of all is WORD OF MOUTH...referrals from YOU! I'd like to put my advertising money towards YOUR benefit!! HOW do I do that? By offering you a 20% discount off your next purchase.
Wondering how to get 20% off YOUR next purchase? It's simple, bring in your favourite shopping buddy to The Inked Stamper, and when she purchases a minimum of $20, and you purchase a minimum $20 as will BOTH save 20% off your totals!  Advertising is one of my biggest expenses, and it does not benefit YOU...but this will!
This deal is on in the shop for the rest of this week until SATURDAY! YES I said Saturday! The Inked Stamper will be open on Saturday's now from 11am-4pm.

FYI The pictures are a sneak peek of a new line (and class) I'm carrying from South Africa called Fabscraps, the collection is Burlesque! Seriously, how HOT is that!

Inkadinkado Stamps

Hi Everyone
This was the card I made for my British Husband this year...could the stamp set be any more appropriate? Love this little set and best of's only $2.50!   It's a tiny little set that is just PERFECT for cards! The only goof up I did on the card is I did the small Union Jack in Perfect Pearls and then ran it through the Big Shot with Tim Holtz Texture Fades (embossing folders) and the Pearls came off! So note to self..Pearls LAST! 
The cards is made with mainly Tim Holtz products, you can read about it on my Facebook Store page by clicking HERE.  If you are not a member of the store page yet, just click LIKE at the top, and your  in.  I update it a few times a day and add pictures of new stock as well.
FYI: I still have space in the upcoming Frametastic Shadowbox Frame Class Sept 12, click on the CLASSES tab up top on this blog for details. And I've also posted the FALL Crops including one NEXT Friday Sept 9, click on the CROP tab for details!
