Happy Thursday.....

friends!!!! I am so very sorry for not posting in over one week, but the funny weather that we have been having here in AZ is not helping those migraine headache attacks I get. Sorry about that and please keep me in your prayers. Thanks!!!!

All right, that was the personal stuff, on to some fun news. Today I am happy to show you a sneak peek of one of the super cool new stamp sheets that Innovative Stamp Creations (ISC)
is going to release on Monday. Since it is the middle of summer Betsy, the owner of ISC has chosen a real fun and absolutely calming beach scene. It is called "Picturesque" and is absolutely gorgeous. I had a little of a hard time with it at first as I STILL don't have any decent markers but I made it work (at least I think so, so if you have a chance let me know what you think, all right?). We were given some DP by Little Yellow Bicycle and had to work with it so I've tried to incorporate as much of it as possible so why don't you see for yourself

Enjoy the stillness......


Paper: Base SU Buckaroo Blue all other papers used are Designer Paper by Little Yellow Bicycle LYP)

Stamp: ISC Picturesque (available on Monday!!!!))

Ink: Memento Cocoa for the sentiment, water based markers in shades of blue, green, yellow and brown for the coloring in of the stamp.

Accessories: LYP Buckle which I changed from yellow to the orange by using Tim Holtz Alcohol inks in orange and caramel, white mini brads, tiny blue buttons and flower shapes ghost shape by Heidi Swapp. (the flower shape ghost shape looked like a starfish of sort so I changed the color to more of a orange/brown, dimensionals, glue dots, Sakura glaze pen for giving the waves a little more real feel (sorry but the glaze pen does not photograph very well).

Did I get you interested in this wonderful set? Well, you just have to wait until Monday to buy it or better yet, in honor of Innovative Stamp Creations 6th Birthday we are having something fun planned for you, check this out
