"Peas on Earth"!

Ooooo I love this Penny Black stamp!!

I think I have been starting my blogs luvin' every stamp lately! But that is the fun part - when you have the luv for a stamp, it is so much easier to stamp!!

I picked this stamp up when I went up to pick up my nestabilites at Scrappin' Great Deals. Needless to say, that was a $$$ trip!

So after I removed my parcel from under the seat of my car late last night (how did it ever get there?!) and snuck it down to my stamping room (all the time trying no to crinkle the bag so it wouldn't make any noise....oh you've all done it) I got started stamping......

I stamped the image with Staz-on black ink and then heat set it. That may not be a necessary step, but sometimes if I am impatient, I start coloring with pencils and then it smears and I didn't want that to happen again!

So I used my prisma pencils and mineral spirits to color this image then I mounted it on the scalloped nestabilities.

I cut the red cardstock with my round corner punch to make the scallops and then stamped it with the little circle background stamp from "Pink Cat Studio" and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. The little circles are so cute with the peas!

I was on the Pink Cat Studio website and saw where you could order a grab bag of 30 stamps for $22.50 so I jumped on even get to suggest the different categories you would like in your grab bag! You may not get them all-----but I did!!

I used my Stamping Up slot punch and attached the ribbon. I think the next time I would extend the ribbon all the way over to the edge of the striped paper, which is from Basic Grey - the Figgy Pudding set.

I am wondering what paper I will use after Christmas because this is practically all I use!!

I have to go for a walk and take my poor dog out.....she is crossing her legs and begging - oh bad doggie!!

Ewwww! LUCKY ME!
