Stamps of Life

 Hi All,

Last month here in North Texas the Great American Scrapbook Convention came to town.  I noticed a new (to me) company called "The Stamps of Life".  Lots of fun images caught my eye and as I wandered into the booth, I met the very friendly owner, Stephanie Barnard.  Stephanie used to design See D's stamps for the no-longer-in-business "Inique Boutique" line. She is so sweet and was happy to talk to browsers checking out the booth. Since I Iove paper-piecing and coloring, lots of her sets appealed to me!

Two things that made me spend money on her stamps are 1) the value -- so many stamps for a $12.95 a set.  2) They are very very versatile - you can mix them with other sets entirely, they "fit" with other sets (i.e., the petals of the butterfly can be paper pieced into the flower set (that I didn't get yet!).  All the pieces are all separate, you can get very creative with the individual images.

I joined her monthly club (details here) and have already received my first monthly set!  I haven't played with it yet (except I used the sentiment on the title image of this post), I already know it's going to be a fun one!!

The sets I had in my hand when I walked away were:


Background is made with blue Pan Pastels, sentiment is from July's Club Member se.

Kite bows are made dimensional with Viva Glass Effects Gel Pen

Card cased from KWerner Designs


And the sentiments I used are from this set -- which is AWESOME and so versatile!! :


TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
