Pocket Letter Full of Sin City Stamps!

I love pocket letters seeing them done by fabulous crafters but I have only made one in my entire life!  Well to rectify that I have made one full of Anime Fairies and Baby Dragons and Fairy Fantasy Figures from Sin City Stamps.  I used a product from my new favorite bargain hunting Tuesday Morning and  they had 3 colors super cheap so of course had to try them.  They come out just like gallery glass and resist all paints...watercolors and acrylics!  Also ink for stamping so even though it messed with my stamping a wee bit I liked the look and kept on rolling with it!

Now to see who gets the pocket letter!  Hmmm and will they want it LOL!

Good Evening from Mr. Alfred Hitchcock by LeighSBDesigns!

If you look in the mirror and see this man and his pet looking at you.....well, you might want to either check your medications or run!  Run first then explore the other options I would think!  This wonderfully eclectic, realistic image of Alfred Hitchcock is mind blowing to me who can't draw a circle!  Our talented LeighSB is showing us new and wonderful goodies every 3 days until her Etsy store is stocked!  So much to look forward to!  

The mirror is from the Tumble Fish Studios at Mischief Circus set called Hotel Hell.  The man of the hour is colored in Spectrum Noir markers.  You can find him at LeighSBDesigns as realistic line art digi stamp of the Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock with his iconic bird perched on his arm.

I loved doing this project so much!  You will see him again in the next few days; I am in no way through with this lovely!

Come join our Facebook Fan Group and grab some freebies from the album section in the photos and show us your take on LeighSBDesigns fabulous images!  We look forward to seeing your work there and do stop and visit the store on Etsy it is just a click away right below or above :)

Time to Walk Like an Egyptian....Cat! Cleo the Egyptian Cat is in the Store Now!

LeighSBDesigns has another new release called Cleo the Egyptian Cat and what an absolute darling she is!  I love the elaborate, fantastic designs that Leigh is coming out with every 3 days ....yep!  every 3 days until her Etsy store is stocked full!  What energy and talent she has!  Here is my offering of Cleo with an archway from the British Library copyright free releases where you can find lots to compliment your stamps and digital images!  

To me all the mysteries Cleo has seen through the ages is reflected in those awesome eyes!  A little die cutting of the archway with Tim Holtz's die set and painted with these fabulous multimedia acrylic paints I found at Tuesday Morning!  I just discovered this store I thought it was just home decor and who wants to spend craft money on their home LOL but they have some amazing closeout products that I have never seen in the big three craft stores and at amazing prices!  These paints are translucent and gorgeous in real life!  Not as glorious as Cleo but fit for her regal presence I think!

Don't wait to shop  because new releases are on sale for a short period and you do not want to miss a one of them!  Also on our Facebook Fan Group, we have some freebies for you so grab those and you will be so hooked you will have to have all of the LeighSBDesigns images!

Another Notebook from the Tree of Life Set from Sin City Stamps

I love this set of trees from all leafed out to ready for Halloween!  I bought these really really bright note cards thinking of course that I could use them in some way and ah ha! here it is!  I made another little quick and easy journal/notebook to grab on the way out of the door going to the beach or a festival or bird watching and make my notes on the way home!  The set is Tree of Life 11.

A nice little clip holds it all together with some additional stamping from the Journal Two Set from Sin City Stamps!

Each tree has his own page with some words to keep me motivated to take notes and photos! 

I cut some contrasting colors and stamped with the Journal Two Set to make pockets so slip memorabilia in such as ticket stubs and goodies I always find!

Some Sin City Stamps and Tongue Depressor Play

I saw this over a year ago and have wanted to give it a try but only remember when I am in the doctor's office and see his nice wide tongue depressors!  Well, short of lifting a few, I bought some narrower ones from the dollar tree but have found the wide ones at a pharmacy in town so next time more room to work on!  So with tongue in cheek and Sin City Stamps in hand I embarked on a year long awaited journey!

Some Distress Inks I have wanted for ages Mermaid Lagoon, Fossilized Amber in the mini set were not disappointing at all!

My motto "I color outside the lines!"

Grand Opening of LeighSBDesigns!

Fabulous weekend for the art world with the grand opening of LeighSBDesigns!  Our own Leigh S-B is creating some spectacular digital stamps and will be continuing to add to her collection for sale on Etsy every 3 days until her store is full!  So set your fun clocks for every 3 days to see what is new and run now to the LeighSBDesigns Fan Group for the freebies waiting for you right now!  Here is a sample of the Whimsical Steampunk Easter Bunny that can be found in the Etsy Store that I did an acrylic background and used Spectrum Noir Markers for the bunny!

He will be making a reappearance when I can find my missing die cut machine!  Gremlins in the studio again ugh!  But what a elegant, distinguished bunny he is!

Thanks so much to Leigh for the opportunity to be a designer for her on her design team!  This is my first official project and so very excited for my friend on her new exciting journey!

 It is time for our April challenge at Dragons Lair Designs Challenge Blog and the theme is
Anything Goes" with a twist of "Wedding".  I went a little rouge on this one using Sir Hiss and his wedding cake for my twist!  Sir Hiss was our coloring challenge for March and we have another one started for April!  You ask for the image, get the image, and make a project and upload to the album on the Fan page!  So double for the information on this blog post!

I colored him up with Spectrum Noir markers and fussy cut him and the cake out.  I then used a die to cut the word "lifetime" to express his everlasting love for his Mrs. Hiss!

Now that you have had a look at this inspiration blog post why don't you visit some of the other areas in the Dragons Lair Designs family of sites:
