Awesome Anatomy Charms, Halloween Stamps, and More
Happy Saturday everyone! We have even more wonderful Halloween goodies in the shop. I can't get enough! The anatomy charms are of course my favorite. They are nice, heavy, high quality charms that are large enough for pendants, but also perfect for altered art and assemblage. We also have a few new Halloween Washi Tapes and several amazing stamps!
Tombstone Inspiration By Linda Cain!
Design Team Member Linda Cain has been cooking up some wickedly cool pieces in her art lab. Check out her blog post HERE to see all four of her fabulous Tombstones for the Art Swap! Tons of inspiration!
Tombstones are due October 6th so you have just over a month! There's still time to join in!
Inspiration By Vickie Kammerer and a CONGRATS!
A HUGE congrats to artist Vickie Kammerer for her wonderful project article in the current Stampington & Company Somerset Holidays & Celebrations magazine, on the newstands NOW! Vickie used our Sugar Skull Ornaments, DOTD Fairy Shrine Kits, Metal Roses, and Coffin Cabochons in her projects, and we couldn't be more honored. She even mentioned Retro Café Art Gallery and Kristin Hubick in the text of her article. We are truly blushing over here! We are also so proud of Vickie for helping Dia Del Los Muertos get some of the exposure it absolutely deserves. Fantastic Vickie! Go get your copy. You won't be sorry!
Inspiration By Lynn Stevens!
This amazing "Scary-Go-Round" is by Design Team Member Lynn Stevens! In addition to our 3-D Carousel Shrine Ki with Chipboard Top, she also used our Banner Cut-Outs, Skeleton Paper Cuts, Spider and Web Cut-Outs, Bat Cut-Outs, and Tim Holtz Autumn Tinsel.
Lynn is a brilliant painter, and her horses are to die for! (pun intended)
Here's a GREAT tip from Lynn:
"I hand painted one horse then took photo copies and cut out and glued onto the rest of them".
What a time saver and fantastic idea from making them uniform! You can read more about this wonderful piece on Lynn's blog.
