SSS special SUPER sale!

SIMON SAYS STAMP SPECIAL SUPER SALE!
phew...say that 10 times!

ALL of my new stamps, stencils, art parts & embossing pastes are IN STOCK now at Simon...
and they are celebrating with a

 special SALE ON ALL MY PRODUCTS!

awesome!!
thanks so much Heidi!

I'll have the special code you need 
at the end of the post...

ok...back to CHA stuff first...

this is another fun little art I made for tim, 
using his fun blueprint stamp...
the base is my art parts small creative cover, & it's inked with several colors of distress...

I stamped the dressform a second time on some Clearly For Art, that I covered with Ranger's kraft cardstock...
this allowed me to heat the CFA & make the form much more dimensional...

to create the top portion, I laid a memo pin over a #8, then filled the memo pin with Glossy Accents & set it aside to dry. this usually takes about 4 hours..
when dry, I added a small foliage flower behind it...

I TOTALLY love the screw eyes for securely adding hanging elements...
like the mini pins...

alpha tiles made the title simple...
and I added a small Blossom Bucket metal corner to create the shelf...

I even used my HOARDED idea-ology snaps...
I *may* have to start that write in campaign again...

repeat after me...
Dear Tim...
BRING BACK THE SNAPS!
please!


this next tag uses the new distress paints...

I can't even begin to tell you how much I love them...

I'll be working on tutorials using them...
soon (I hope)...

anyway...this art parts flower is a little different...

I applied a pretty thin layer of my white embossing paste to the flower & dried it...

then added mustard seed distress paint over the dry paste...
I applied it with my finger & dried it...

the paint...
not my finger...
lol...

then to add the darker colors to the flower center, I used several different distress markers...
dried marigold & rusty hinge...
this looks cool..
it's matte & a bit textured too...

those big polka dots are broken china distress ink thru my new polka dotty stencil...


and the last for today...

made into a useable real chalkboard...

just paint the base with Claudine's black gesso...
I gave it 2 coats...
and now it's a real working chalkboard!

LOVE the Blossom Bucket silverware & flower...

oh...can't forget that new art parts tied bow...
it fits so many projects...

that was filmed at CHA by my friends @ SCRAPTIME...
