Annual Rubber Stamp Show Part 2
Here is Part 2 of the Annual Rubber Stamp Show! Read part 1 here. As I mentioned in my last post I am sharing my favorite items from each booth.
Here is the Stampland booth - I LOVE their style!
I'm a big fan of Victorian ephemera and what not.
Fainting couches...oh the days when women would LITERALLY pass out from oxygen deprivation from wearing those infernal corsets.
I'm a big fan of Art Deco and fairies too <3
They were doing a really cool demonstration that anyone could do if they have a Big Shot machine using pretty much any die.
In the demonstration that I saw, she was showing us how to use the positive and negative die cuts to create shadows and texture.
I just loved all of the ink on her fingers
She uses brushes and essentially paints with dye ink pads.
Some of her completed samples. I tried to get better photos but there were several people crowding around to watch and I didn't want to butt in!
I was able to find a YouTube Video of one of her demonstrations on one of my favorite vlogger's YouTube channel. Be sure to check it out!
Next is Close To My Heart which is a company that sells plastic photo sheets that enable you to add on to a basic plastic photo album sheet to create a fold-out story that saves space in a photo album.
They are also an in-home party company, like Stampin Up. Unfortunately, you can't shop online.
I LOVE Craft Fantastic! This is a local Albuquerque company that has everything you need to make gorgeous jewelry using any image you want.
I learned about them one year when my friend Mia and I won a bundle of supplies at the Lovelace Women's Hospital Girls Night out. They've started teaching classes to show you how to use their products.
Next up - Waffle Flower! I am proud to say that I am an affiliate and I love their designs. I ended up buying some adorable Spring/Easter stamps and dies.
They have planner stamps too! <3
I almost bought the succulent stamps and dies sets...
Thanks for reading everyone!
Stay tuned for part 3.
