FREE ViNTaGE DiGi Stamps...

Well, I have another new website, it's FREE Vintage Digi Stamps.

What is a Digi Stamp you might be wondering? It's like clipart, but it is a Digital stamp that you save on your computer and print whenever you need the image for a project. The images are created with the creative Stamper or Crafter in mind who like to color or embellish the image for various projects, like handmade cards, Artist Trading Cards, or Scrapbook projects.

Some nice things about Digi Stamps is that they don't take up your crafting storage space, no expensive ink pads to purchase, and you save lots of money from not having to buy stamps, because they can get quite expensive!

Check out the first set of Vintage Digital images at my new site - the images are FREE!

Updates weekly!

Art Unraveled 2011
Mixed Media ARt Event

Looks more like I'm staying at the hotel than selling goods at a show...

Did I bring enough merchandise? How will I make all of this fit onto three 8-foot tables?

Here is are my tables, right at the front of the show entrance.

It's amazing how much stuff those old suitcases will hold and this is a view of just one table!

Here's a view of all the stuff on another table -
mostly Stamp' D'Amour stamps and stamping supplies.

Here's my friend, Tricia via Vintage Bliss. Her tables always look amazing!

Here is Shirley of the Artsy Fartsy Fairy.
Shirley always makes these amazing calenders and she also teaches classes at Mystic Paper.

It's starting to get a little busy! Lots of wonderful bargains and treasures to find!

Here are repeat customers, Ruth & Karen.
I recognized them because I took a photo of them last year shopping
my tables and posted it on my Blog.

Busy day! Look at all of the shoppers! Can't wait until Art Unraveled 2012!
It was so much fun!

ART UNRAVELED - Shopping Extravaganza Aug 6, 2011

This week, I have been getting items ready for the Shopping Extravaganza event at Art Unraveled this Saturday, Aug. 6th. I can't believe that a whole year has passed since I did the show last year. It was so much fun being a Vendor and a Shopper there.

Here are a few photos from the show last year...

You can see from the (dark) photo above how busy it gets when they open at 10am.

Here's a few photos of some of the other Vendors,
to give you an idea of the fantastic stuff you'll find there!

This was the Artist next to me last year, very talented!
(ugh! I forgot her name....)

Here are my two vendor tables from last year.
This year I have three tables and am in the MAIN Ballroom...I am bringing LOTS of stuff!

I will also have Stampin' D' Amour unmounted stamps available for very CHEAP,
to make way for newer images later this year.
Most of them are of Vintage Fashion ladies.

Art Unraveled has mixed media workshops all week long.

It is at the Embassy Suites:
4415 E Paradise Village Parkway S, Phoenix, AZ 85032

The Shopping Extravaganza is Saturday, 8/6: 10am-4pm

Don't miss this event, it's my favorite!
I always find so many great things here!

Booth 96 Before & After


Here's a photo of my booth from back in April ((BOOTH 96)) over at the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall in Phoenix. It had these cute little shelves already built right into it...just waiting for all sorts of merchandise. It was already painted shabby pastel blue...perfect!

This is what a carload full of stuff looks like...didn't make much of a dent.


Here is BOOTH 96 today (well, 2-days ago)...and many, many trips later. Now this little booth is full of all sorts of Scrapbook, Paper Arts, Vintage Ephemera, and other little goodies.

I wanted to paint this brown little vintage dresser white or some sort of shabby blue, but it looks pretty good just being brown. It's a great place to display more merchandise in the meantime.

If you are ever in the Phoenix area and are in search of some Vintage and unique Scrapbook & Paper Arts stuff, then stop by BOOTH 96 at the Brass Armadillo in Phoenix...located just NW of I-17 & Cactus. It's a little Scrapbook Store inside a BIG Antique Mall. More merchandise gets added every few days...great prices too!

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Merci Stampin D Amour....

Posting and Creation by Angelica Turner

I had lots of fun designing with their beautiful images and got to design alongside the wonderful and talented Jen and Pamela, thank you ladies. My card features two of my favorite images from the "French Vintage" clear stamp set, I stamped the images with baroque burgandy ink from Stampin' Up on white cardstock. The layout of the card is based on sketch #199 from Mojo Monday, I also followed this week's challenge #70 over at The Shabby Tea Room.
Used several flowers, the large flower I misted with vanilla Smooch Spritz and heat embossed with clear embossing powder, I got this technique from my very best friend Velma. Also added a combination of punched leaves in different cardstock colors.

Thank you so much for stopping by, until next time and have a great day.

SDA Happy Birthday Card

POSTING & CREATION by Angelica Turner

Today I have a fun birthday card full of bright happy colors, I used the "Happy Birthday" sentiment from the "Fabulous Birthday" clear stamp set from Stampin' D'Amour. The layout of the card is based on the sketch from VLV, July week 1, great sketch and lots of fun to work with. The paper is from an old collection by Making Memories called "Emery", I paired it with red cardstock. Used some white seam binding for the bow, the scalloped edge on the circle I created with a Martha Stewart border punch.
The little doily looking flowers I made with a border punch from EK Success called "Abstract Flower Chain", I adhered with a pop dot and added a button for the center. I also added some Stickles to the edges of all the patterned paper layers for a touch of sparkle.
Thank you so much for stoping by and hope you have a wonderful day.

Size: 6" x 6"
Stamps: Stampin' D'Amour (Fabulous Birthday)

FAB Birthday Card

Posting & Creation by Angelica Turner

It's time for a project featuring Stampin' D'Amour. This card features an image from the "Fabulous Birthday" clear stamp set. Start by cutting the card base and the patterned paper with the Cricut, I used an image from the "Sentiments" cartridge and sized the image on Design Studio. The patterned paper is from "Que Sera, Sera" by K & Co., I really like the colors and patterns on this paper collection.
I stamped the image on white cardstock, then stamped the cupcake 3 times, one on the yellowish patterned paper, one on the brown paper, and one on yellow cardstock, cut out all the pieces and paper pieced together, shaded the cupcake top and candle with spiced marmalade distress ink.
As a final touch I added some ribbon, a few flowers from Prima, some punched leaves, and adhesive rhinestones, and don't forget a touch of Stickles on the flowers for an extra touch of sparkle.
Here is my inspiration for the layout, another great sketch from Mojo Monday. Thank you for stopping by and have a great day.
Size: 5" x 5"
Stamps: Stampin' D'Amour (Fabulous Birthday)
Inks: Ranger Archival Ink (Jet Black), Distress Ink (spiced marmalade)
Paper: Bazzill cardstock, GP 110 Lb white cardstock, K & Co. (Que Sera Sera)
Other: Cricut Expression, Cricut Cartridge (Sentimentals), Cricut Design Studio, Stickles (Yellow), Punch Bunch (Rock Fern), Prima Flowers, adhesive rhinestones, ribbon

Celebrate Card

Posting & Creation by Jennifer Cuthbertson

Today I have a fun, patriotic card in honor of the upcoming 4th of July and also to take advantage of some new Bo Bunny papers I just bought! :)

I stamped the celebrate banner stamp from the Stampin' D'Amour Fabulous Birthday set on to one piece of paper, cut each of the little pennants out, and attached them all to some red and white baker's twine. I attached the banner with two coordinating chipboard star stickers and finished the card with a chipboard sticker of the USA.

Supplies: Stamps - Fabulous Birthday (SDA), DP/Embellishments - Liberty Collection (Bo Bunny), Twine (Country Clean), Cardstock - Not Quite Navy (SU!), Ink - Basic Black (SU!)
