People using my stamps in their art :)

I just wanted to share a few pictures of some beautiful pieces of jewelry where the artist has used one of my clear stamps as texture. I feel like a proud parent LOL

First is my pal Janie in Alabama. She runs a shop called Life Art Designs over at Etsy. She says is getting ready for an arts and crafts show on Dauphin island on April 16th. If you are in the area you should drop by and take a look at her fabulous work. Janie has combines polymer clay with fine silver clay (.999% silver) to make this gorgeous piece using my Asian Script clear stamp.

The next person is one of my faithful Etsy shoppers 🙂 Her shop is call Mindfulmatters. She used my ever popular Vintage Circuit Board clear stamp to create this wonderful pendant.

She also made this intricate barrette using my Runes clear stamp.

Wandie Ortiz has a shop called Bijoux Hibou at Etsy and she used my Branches clear stamp to make this very colorful pendant, which I just love, that has a glazed ceramic look.

Here we have Kristen from Canada. Another of my Etsy buyers. (Thanks you Etsy) Her Etsy shop is called Wasabeads. Kristen used my Vintage Circuit Board clear stamp to make this great pendant and earring set.

You can find over 70 clear stamps currently listed in my Artfire and Etsy shops. Please drop by and take a look. 🙂 I am positive you will find them interesting and unique. I design my stamps with polymer clay in mind, but they can be used on a multitude of surfaces. If you can stamp on it, they will work 🙂

My Newest Inro & Sanding With A Scumbuster

I finally managed to finish sanding and buffing a stack of stuff I made last week and the week before. 🙂 I’m not a big fan of sanding, but it’s a necessary evil. I even have the help of my Scumbuster, which I couldn’t live without. It saves my hands from cramping and I don’t sand off my skin anymore LOL. That’s not really all that funny, it hurt like the devil, but I never noticed the skin was gone until it was too late.

There are several articles online on how to sand with a Scumbuster, but I’ll make it quick and painless. Cut a sheet of sandpaper into 1/4’s. Soak the sandpaper in hot water for about 5 minutes to soften it. Center one piece of sandpaper over the top of the scrub pad, which you have attached to the Scumbuster, and fold the sandpaper’s corners over the edge of the scrub pad. Use 4 T-pins (or straight pins with a ball on the end) to hold the 4 corners of the sandpaper into the side of the scrub pad. It might not look pretty, but it works fine 🙂 Now you are ready to sand to your hearts content.

The older model Scumbuster like I have with interchangeable, rechargeable batteries may be a little difficult to find,
scumbuster
but there is a newer model called the Black & Decker Power Scrubber that should be a good replacement. It uses 4 AA batteries, so I’d invest in some good rechargeable batteries.

So, to end this little story, here is the inro I finally finished sanding and buffing 🙂

A Master Of Complex Face Canes

Julie Eakes’ face canes are in one word outstanding !! She is the person who got all the attention a while back with her Obama cane. She was able to gift one of the pins she made to Senator Kathy Sgambati from New Hampshire, who Julie met at the Cabin Fever Festival. There is a picture of the two of them at Julie’s blog.

Be sure to take a few minuted to browse her Photobucket gallery. There are many canes shown that will amaze you. If I could have half of Julie’s talent I would consider it a blessing.
