Whipper Snapper

Went to the Stamp store in Rome today and got some cooool Whipper Snapper stamps, including this one. I read online about something called Gamsol, which you use with colored pencils and blending stumps. This technique gives you very bright vibrant colors and smooths pencil lines. I read somewhere else that you could substitute baby oil, so that is what I did. The coloring actually looks better in person.

A few weeks ago I found some clear self sealing envelopes at Michael's for like $1.00, so I had to have them because I love the ones that Stampin' Up sells. The size was 3 1/8 x 4 1/8. This card is made 3 x 4 to fit that envelope.

Hope you like...TFL!

I am waiting on the new Penny Black catalogs in the mail. I have just purchased a large amount of stamps from Stampendous and a bunch of new items from Gel-a-tins. (Bubble Gum scented embossing as well as Lilac scented embossing) Oh They Smell So Good!!! You must have these. Will be listing them in store soon.

The bubble gum scented embossing will go great with several Stampin Up Treat Yourself stamp sets I have just purchased on Ebay. What a great combination.
