Happy news!



Did you get your new stamps from PCD at midnight? I heard they were selling out quickly!

In other news, I am now on the Design Team for Firecracker Designs by Pamela!
I'm so excited because they have some really unique stamps. Not only do they have unmounted red rubber, they also have clear stamps and digital stamps too! A little something for everyone!

This is my first post using FCD stamps, and I really loved the sea shells. They were deeply etched red rubber and gave a very crisp image. I like how simple yet intricate they are. Some Copic markers helped give dimension.

I was going for a masculine card that had a nautical theme, but in the end it could be used for anyone, really.  Instead of using PP for the top half of the BG I decided to stitch lines down it with my sewing machine. I LOVE this look! With a few antique brads and some twine I called it done.


Stay tuned for some more fun stamps from FCD in the coming weeks.


This card also qualifies for the Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World! This will be the first time I've ever entered anything there, so I'm super excited to be participating!

Thanks for letting me share in my exciting news with you all, you're the best blog readers ever!
