I scream for Ice Cream!!

This is for Christie's Ice Cream swap. Unfortunately, I had it in my head that it was supposed to be for Traci and sent it to her. DUH!!! Anyway, after signing up for the swap, I discovered I had NO ice cream stamps. I shopped around for some at 'palooza but didn't find anything that I really liked too much. While looking for something else, I found this Ice Cream Cone on a set of Changito stamps. I love the way this one came together. In case you can't tell, Changito can "swing".

Pick a sport (but not your nose?) swap

This is for Sherri's Pick a Sport Swap. I bought this Changito stamp maybe 2 years ago. I knew sometime, I'd need a baseball image. Now is the time! I used crystal effects on the bubble. Next time, I'll make sure to make the background color darker; CE seems to lighten the colors underneath.

It's Time

This is for Sarah's Tick Tock Time swap. I've had these Heidi Swapp stamps forever. I bought them originally intending to stamp them on acrylic & cut them w/my Nestabilites into circle clock shapes. I've never gotten around to doing that. But, when Sarah posted this swap, I knew it was time for these stamps to get inky!

Flip Flop ATCs

For Sherri's Flip Flop Swap (that's fun to say!) I found this awesome flip flop paper in IN when I was at Shack-a-Palooza. It has glossy "embossing" on some of the flip flops. I used my Nestabilities to cut out the transparancy & dry brushed paint over the edges. I had tried to cut out cardstock but it covered too much of the cute paper. I also added Stickles to the flowers on MY flip flops. I liked the way it turned out!

Stamp Camp part IV

I've been very lazy lately and haven't gotten this last pic loaded. That was because I didn't manage to get it finished at Stamp Camp. This was a FREAKING hard project & took a while for everyone to get it done. I got mine stamped but not colored. Now, I'm not thrilled w/the way I colored it. I never can just leave thier eyes alone!! Then, when I color them, they look goofy. Oh well.
