Hello My Lovelies,
Today I am finishing up a 3 part series on the Rubber Stamp Show. I could have dragged this out a little longer by dividing this post up into 2 but I figured I'd go ahead and get 'er done.
First up we have Ellentina Cutting Dies. I don't remember a whole lot about this vendor except that they had a lot of dies. When I looked them up online it seems that this is more of a wholesale company, and that they don't have their own website.
Next is Our Daily Bread Designs
My favorite thing about their booth was their Steampunk display
Awesome idea board!
Look at these examples! Gorgeous.
Packaged very nicely
This one was my favorite
Next is Art Impressions
I was really impressed with their watercolor images
They were doing a live demonstration but they also have some videos on YouTube
I absolutely LOVED this raccoon stamp and die set.
Seriously...look at these examples. Adorable!
The possibilities are endless.
I fell in love with their Halloween stamp display
LOVE these examples!
How sweet is that?
The illustrations are really top notch
You can't tell from the photo but they used Glossy Accents on the bats to give this example dimension
Next is a local (New Mexican) company called Stamp A Mania
They demonstrated a GORGEOUS embossing technique.
Here are some examples.
They use multiple colors of glitter embossing powder and sprinkle them on, starting with the outside portion of the stamp, or one side of the stamp, and working their way through the whole image.
I tried to take a video but didn't actually film ANYTHING! Ugh.
I'm thinking I'll do a blog post on this technique so you all can see how it is done.
Creations Unlimited was next and they don't have an online presence at all, and their display was very simple...
...but I liked their lace embossing technique.
Here we have another local company Guadalupe's Fun Rubber Stamps
I loved their calavera stamps <3
In addition to the fun stamps, they also sold other art supplies, like these bags of vintage ephemera
I bought an issue of Somerset Studio - swoon!!! <3 <3 <3
I really want to use it as an art journal
I'm really excited about it
The last vendor was Morning Star Stamps
My favorite part of their display was these cute little favor boxes
I also really liked their coffee and tea dies
and they had a really cute Halloween favor box display.
That's all folks!
