Penny's #283: Anything Goes!

Good morning stampers! I hope everyone's week is going well! I have been the World's WORST Blogger lately, creating all my DT cards, but not sharing them on here! LIFE has kinda gotten away from me, but I have resolved to do a better job going forward! Also, I will be back posting all my beauties from the last weeks. I'll fill in the days I don't otherwise have DT commitments, to share these cards with you all!

But in the meantime, there is a new challenge this morning over at Penny's Challenge! Must be Wednesday!

I want to share my card for this current challenge where the theme is - ANYTHING GOES! Well that's an easy one. This week's sponsors are Imagine That...digis by Kris, and Nikki Burnette. As always, they are offering a wonderful prize to lucky stampers!

Here is my project, featuring "Summer BBQ Kit" from ITDBK! This is such a cute kit, I love this little guy of course, but there are accessories and sentiments as well to fill all your backyard BBQ needs!

That's it for this post! Don't forget to swing over to the Penny's Challenge blog to link up your projects for your chance to win! My DT sisters have created some beautiful inspiration, so leave them some love too!


Saturday, May 21, 2016 Custom Stamp Weekend!

Wow, finally! What a week....but now: HELLO WEEKEND, stamping friends!! We've been waiting for today for awhile...WELCOME to the CUSTOM STAMP FEATURE and inspirational blog hop. Today we're showcasing the amazing versatility of custom stamp design. If you have arrived here from Vickie's blog, you are in the right place. If not, you can go back to Jessica Lynn's blog at the beginning of the hop and make sure you didn't miss anything! Each DT member worked with Jessica to create their own custom stamp to create with! What an amazing idea. I had so much fun with this!

I hope you've been inspired by the projects you've seen so far along the hop. I'm the last stop, so thanks for hanging out with us!

My custom stamp is the birds on the branch. I wanted a really quick, sketchy look to some little birds so I could do some fun techniques with watercolor, sprays (as above) and other more "outside my normal zone" projects. I thought this would be so fun for that, so my son and I spent some time searching for an example photo so Jessica could see into our thought process. She came up with this sweet image, and it's been so much fun for us to play!

You can "like" on Facebook here, and join our group to share your art and projects created with Jessica's stamps here. We'd love to see you there!
