Stamping Show

What a great day with friends! I was invited by Donna along with Sharon and Suzie to the StampScrapArtTour show in Pittsburgh. Suzie was a nice surprise, we worked together at Wally-work long ago. So nice to see her again and visit!
We arrived when the doors were opening and they kicked us out at the end (not really, but we were there the whole time!)
Not a make and take, and not something I made, just a really cool card made with a Stampin' UP! Circle punch and the Scallop Circle and an oval punch too.

Some of my loot... I was on a limited budget, I could have bought SOOOO much more!

Gamsol from Inky Antics, I already have the great colored pencil set and the blending stumps just needed the odorless mineral spirits for blending them. Embossing powders from Sparkle N Sprinkle. They had an absolutely fantastic selection of powders and micro-fine glitters and the nicest lady demo-ing product all day long. My powders are all pearly finishes. The glue is from there as well. It is brushable, dries clear and is flexible when dry so it doesn't crack or peel off. LOVE IT! Sharon and I split two different colors of Dew Drops, mine was Spring assorted. I can't recall what her choice was. They were from Our Daily Bread.

Barely visible on the bottom of the pile is 165 feet of 1/4 inch easy tear double sided adhesive for the bargain price of $5. On top of that is an embossing and piercing starter kit. It includes parchement sheets, pad, triple tool and template, also from Our Daily Bread. Under that is a ball point glue pen by Sakura. I am always looking for a good adhesive for teensy tiny things and this one looked pretty good!

My only stamp purchase of the day was the Fawn from the Blue-eyed Babies collection at Stacy Stamps. I love deer stamps for my guy cards and my nephew Rian will love this one, since he always asks for my other deer stamp. I got this one specifically to use my colored pencils and gamsol on. Can't wait to give it a try!

This was our most fun make and take of the day. It was provided by Darcie's Country Folk and instructed by a young fella named Billy (a Steeler fan from Cleveland!!!) helped us make these really cool pins with Shrinky-dink plastic. I have had some of that in my stash forever and I can't wait to play!!!! I bought a pack of the charm pins! WHHOOOHOOO!!


Sorry I didn't take more pictures, I was just so into taking it all in. Can't wait to do it again next year!

Take care!
