A postcard using another of my favorite stamp plates from Artistic Outpost, Paper Boy.
I covered an old postcard with gesso and distress paints. I added some embossing, stamping and rubons.

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas! We have enjoyed being with family to celebrate Christ’s birth. It is a lot of excitement and early mornings but there is nothing better. Since I don’t have a crafty project to share I’ll share a picture of my little men in their Christmas best.
In the news department…I am so excited to be joining the I Am Roses Design Team this term. Check out the announcement and all the new member’s blogs Here.
Have a wonder week with your family and friends.
Well, it is my last post as a guest designer for Gauche Alchemy using their ‘Nekkid‘ kit. Wow, the month flew by. I made a tag pouch using this envelope that came in the kit. I decorated with chipboard circles that also came in the kit.
Fun, huh? This kit was so loaded of goodies that I even have a bunch left over.
Here is my tag. I sprayed the background and stamped. The stamped image is from one of the TH classic sets. The trims and gold wrapper were from the kit.
I am so glad that you stopped by today. Thank you so much for your wonderful comments and to my new followers.
Hello everyone! I am sharing a piece that I made for Artistic Outpost. I was inspired by the postal art challenge over at .
Isn’t the color magnificient? I used Dylusions inks but I also found this awesome setting on my camera. It is called Pop Art. It takes my picture and makes the color a tiny bit brighter. I love this because when I compare my photo in normal brightness to the one in Pop Art I feel as though the Pop Art gives a better representation of the color on my piece.
I used Artistic Outpost stamps from Paper Boy, Serenity, Ephemera Backgrounds and Paris Exposition. My inks are the new Wendy Vecchi inks by Ranger. I won all 6 of them in the recent giveaway on her FB and blog!
Thank you for all your recent comments on my journal page. It is encouraging to here positive comments and thoughts on a piece that doesn’t meet my expectations.

What a great year it had been with Red Rubber Designs. They were my first design team and I have been blessed to be a part of it. My term will be coming to a close at the end of this month. I will have a few more projects to share. But today, I will be highlighting my favorite projects from this year.
Thank you for stopping by and don’t forget to drop by the Red Rubber Designs Store. I bet they will have something special going on since it’s their first birthday!
Amazing vintage photographs of “newsies” were used as the inspiration for Artistic Outpost’s newest release, Paperboy.
This collection features iconic newsboys and girls from the early 1900’s when children hocked the latest news on the street corners of America’s busiest cities. Also included are a newsprint collage, a megaphone for announcing the latest and greatest, and sentiments professing that “you are the hero in your own story”.
The collection is available in both unmounted sheets of red rubber for $14 or mounted on EZ Mount cling foam and pre-cut for you for $22.99. Mounted version comes with a cling card for easy storage.
Isn’t it fabulous?!!!! This is the newest stamp plate by Artistic Outpost If you have little boys this stamp plate is awesome. I can’t wait to share all of my projects.
My first project is a foldable photo frame. On the cover I used several layers of UTEE and mixed in some green embossing powder and then stamped into it. I stamped the image of the three kids and added some flowers to embellish.
The inside of the frame has been distress embossed using one of the sentiments from the Paper Boy plate and sprayed using a few of my favorite colors. The images were stamped and colored using Distress Markers.
Another picture of the cover.
