Here is another Saturated Canary stamp I just love. I created the bubble frame to go with it. The frame is cut from a standard blue-green card stock and the bubbles are cut from an iridescent card stock that has hues of pink and blue. The bubbles are ‘popped’ out at various dimensions using home made glue dots (Aleene’s Tack it Over and Over). I colored her with my Copics (of course) and added Stickles for the sparkly bubbles.
The file will be available for free for a week. Click on the photo above to download the Bubble Frame (MTC).
I just adore Saturated Canary stamps! Some of them are so complex and so detailed though – and I just can’t afford to spend that much time coloring them. This balloon one is nice and simple – and quicker to color. And the girl is oh, so sweet! I hope the photo shows where I tried to show the pink balloon diffused through the blue one – a technique learned from Jennifer Dove of justforfuncrafts.blogspot.com at her retreat I attended. She is my Copic mentor! Or should I say, Copic Idol? lol
I’ve been waiting for the opportunity to use this stamp, and bring on the spring colors!
Stamp is by C.C. Designs and is called Love Lolita Ladybug

My daughter is graduating High School next month and I started a new job last month so I feel like I’m running at 150% of normal speed and still falling behind. Do you ever get that feeling?
Here is a project I recently completed. This started as a vintage lighted sign for a now extinct business. The previous design had been painted onto the surface and the surface was yellowed with age. A quick trip to the body shop took care of both of those and gave the surface a nice, glossy shine. Next, I cut the vinyl and applied the dark blue first using application fluid. I used a squeegee to remove all of the excess liquid. Then I applied the red vinyl using application fluid – which gave me time to ‘smooth’ it into the space inside the dark blue ‘M’. A little more squeegee work, and it was all new!
I was having so much fun making the T-shirt, I kept on going. If you’ve read previous posts about my wonderful daughter, you will totally enjoy this!
I made this with both matte and shiny iron-on vinyl, as well as dark fuchsia and crystal AB rhinestones.
I took this photo at an angle so you could see the shiny gold. The black vinyl is just as shiny but this photograph didn’t capture it well (you can see it on the photo above).
I wore it out to dinner Saturday night. My daughter’s comment, “I didn’t know you were actually going to wear it!”. Oh how much fun I’ll have when I wear it out with her!
