Combining fine art rubber stamping, mixed media techniques and paper crafting,these are art forms that I love to share. I like the idea of learning together -- sharing what I learn and learning from what others share.
I know I don't use my Magenta Stamps as often as I'd like to. Every one of their stamps is beautifully and artfully designed; and the quality of the rubber is the best. I'm so fortunate to have been introduced to Magenta's line of stamps and other art supplies in my beginning days of stamping. Birthday card 5" wide & 6.5 high This is a Christmas poinsettia stamp that I used as a non-seasonal flower. All of the watercoloring is done on Strathmore 140 lb. hot press watercolor p
RubberMoon stamps are some of the most fun images to play with. And I literally mean play! Kristen Powers, aka Kae Pea, has designed a set of "Stampstracts" that allow you to make your own design on most any medium you wish. Of course, I had to order the entire set and I finally had some time to start playing. Alert: it's addicting. Take your mind for an artsy whirl around the RubberMoon orbit . . .

It seems like "forever" since I've posted. A lot is going on in my life right now, including a trip to Europe that starts this Thursday night. You've heard me talk about my membership in the RubberMoon Mail Club. This is a swap that I received earlier this year from the owner of RubberMoon Stamps, Kristen Powers, aka Kae Pea. It's on Stampboard and I love it! I've just about finished my extra card for the MoonMail swap; it will go to the same person I sent the postcard to. I'
Okay, after I looked at yesterday's card again today, I decided it wasn't very good at all! So I re-did it. Sorry to be repetitive but I think it's all worth it in the end. Hopefully, we'll all learn taking that second or third look might result in a much improved card design. I still used the Soft Finish card stock but used it as a stamp panel on an A2 card base. The bear was stamped in the lower left of the card with the same colors. The bow was stamped with Teal Zeal the f
I belong to RubberMoon's MoonMail Club. For the low monthly subscription fee, we are sent a stamp that is designed just for Moonies, along with an extra goodie or two. RubberMoon and Inchie Arts work together very closely and I usually enjoy one of their Art Square Boards, i.e., inchies, twinchies, Art Swatch, etc. You can click on this link to read all about joining the MoonMail Club: https://rubbermoon.com/pages/moonmail-club.

I promised something totally different and I think I found a very simple "different" from what I've posted the last couple of days. LOL! Meet a new stamp line I discovered, Stamping Bella's Cool Chicks Collection . . . full of humor! My sis-in-law has been trying to exercise and I haven't quite jumped up to join her yet. So I thought this card would be most appropriate to send to her. On white card stock, I stamped with Memento in Tuxedo Black. Used my Copic Markers to color
