One of the best things about going to shows is seeing first hand how very creative our customers are. This is the back of a cell phone! Susan (Bailey) purchased an inexpensive cell phone case and altered it! She just used little odds and ends pieces, using E6000 (adhesive). It was really cool looking! Thank you for sharing this Susan!
You might just see my cell phone looking very similar to yours very soon!
(Maybe we can get Mara to Swarovski Crystal hers!!)
This past weekend we were in Orlando Florida at Stampfest. A group of young ladies came to our booth the first day and fell in love with our medallions and Swarovski Crystals. They purchased the Holly Berry House Valentine Roses Medallion, along with many others. As they purchased it, I told them that my artist (of course the wonderful Mara), told me after she had made the sample that it was the hardest medallion to make. The image doesn't have straight edges!
The following day, these 4 ladies brought the most beautiful medallion back to the booth. This is what they worked on all evening! IT LOOKS WONDERFUL! We were very impressed!!
Liz, Luci, Patricia and Jean; from Fort Lauderdale - GREAT JOB!

The niece of one of our customers, Cindy E. from New London Ohio, asked her if she could make her some "colorful" owl graduation cards. Below is what Cindy came up with just by using a Spellbinders die. How very creative... and we had to share it with you! (YES, her niece LOVED them!)
Have something you would like to share with us? We'd LOVE to see it!
Yes, we still LOVE our tweezers, and will use them in other ways now... but we just found the best new tool on the market. The CRYSTAL KATANA. There are other similiar products out there, but this is the one that works consistantly and exactly how it is intended to work. It picks up AND releases beautifully. It is Stamplistic AND Swarovski endorsed! The Crystal Katana has now become a must have tool.

Copic Design Team Member Sharon Harnist joins us today to show us a Copic Marker coloring tutorial - flick feathering or feather blending.
1. Start the stroke at the bottom (or edge of your stamped flower line) and flick the marker upward. You should have more pressure on the marker at the beginning of the stroke and then less pressure as you near the end of the stroke, so there is less (or narrower) color towards the top of your stroke. You can vary the “broadness” of your stroke (and color intensity) by how much pressure you place on the tip of the marker at the beginning of the stroke.
2. Using your second color, flick from the other direction, so the colors meet. You can keep repeating the two strokes, to achieve the blend you’d like.
3. The final step will have the two colors blending together in the middle, creating a new color!
Stamping the flowers in a soft gray ink (Memento London Fog), allows the coloring to be the main focus and a little more realistic. The Copic Sketch marker colors used on this card were: R81, R83, R85, YR31 (flowers) and YG61, YG63 (leaves).
Here are the steps for the flowers:
1. YR31 flicked from the center of the flower petals, outward (the middle flower shown below) and R81 flicked from the outer edges of the petals, inward (the right petal below). The result is the lower left petal:
2. Here’s what the flower looks like, completed with the first two steps of feather blending:
3. Next, I used my chosen middle tone (R83) to add some shading to the sides of each of the petals that appear to be underneath the other. This really helps to start defining each petal:
4. Then I went back with my lighter R81 and blended out the harsh line of the R83:
6. For the leaves, I used the same feather strokes, starting with my lightest YG61 marker. I started my feather strokes from the edge of the flower petal, downward. Notice I stopped just short of reaching the edge of the stamped leaf line, to leave a little highlight:
7. Next, I used my darker YG63 and the same flicking stroke from the flower petal downward, to create a shadow on the leaf:PaperFections
At a recent convention, the organizer took some pictures as all the vendors were setting up so that she could post them to the shows blog. She captured this one of all our medallions that we showcase, still packed in their storage container. We just had to share it. It's a pretty cool looking picture don't you think? LOVE all that sparkle and shine!!
We just LOVE our customers! This past weekend at a stamping convention, a customer - and we did not get her name we are so sorry - showed us this wonderful card she made using our Carousal Deer stamp. She also used dies from Cherry Hill dies and WON a card challenge! Congrats to her... great card and thank you for sharing!!
Sneak peak at what we'll be making this Saturday, March 9, 2013 during Stamp Chat! We are using the Jumbo Cling Amaryllis stamp from Stampendous. GREAT card Mara. (Open to the public, check out our website for more information.)
According to Mara, YES!
But look at how beautiful she made this medallion look! It is the Holly Berry House Originals Valentine Roses Medallion, we just added to our line we take to conventions.
Amazing Mara! Absolutely amazing!
