You MUST check this out!

I want to say that I am so giddy right now! Tracey from Starving Artistamps just uploaded several new sets of sentiments onto the website.......and I helped create some!! Those of us on the Design Team kept asking for more sentiments so when she offered for us to make our own up I jumped at the chance! I racked my brain for about a month thinking of all of the phrases and words I'd like to be able to use and ended up spending about 6-8 hours on the phone with Tracey going over everything and choosing the fonts and editing the sheets. It was a long process but she is wonderful to work with (and for) and she has made me soooo happy!

I brainstormed all of the following sets and some words or phrases scattered about too!
Faith Sentiments
Urban Set #2
Most of Trick or Treat
Some of Holiday Greetings
Most of Casual Holiday Greetings
All About Easter
St. Patty's
4th of July
Some of All About Love
Most of Fairytale
Most of Country
Some of Bird Words
A couple of the Fresh and Funky Farm
Quirky {my fave set because it works perfectly with the Doodle Factory Creatures!}

Now, to share a few more of my Doodle Factory cards! This first one is one I made with the Fairytale set. I stamped the carriage and then masked it so I could have Princess Winifred riding along with her horse Favius. I brayered the BG with blue and purple to give it a sunset look. I also used my Copic Spica glitter marker on Favius' saddle and the accents on the carriage. I wanted to make it a 'thinking of you' card but didn't want to put a big sentiment across the top so I just cut out a thought bubble and had her thinking of 'you'!

  • STAMPS- Favius, Princess Winifred, Carriage (DF Fairytale), tufts of grass (DF Country) (Starving Artistamps)
  • PAPER- glossy white, Mellow Moss, Paper Trey white
  • INK- Versamark, Brilliance black
  • OTHER- Copic markers, Spica glitter marker, pop dots

  • STAMPS- Doodle Factory Winter (Starving Artistamps)
  • PAPER- blue, white
  • INK- Brilliance black, Night of Navy, Versamagic Cloud White
  • OTHER- Copic markers, ribbon, pop dots

Thanks for stopping by today! I will be running off hopefully today and finding a nice old dresser at a yard sale for the girls. I want an old one because they are usually made of REAL WOOD and not cheap sawdust. Wish me luck!! Have a great day and don't dwell on it being Friday the 13th!

P.S. My article on storage ran on Craft Critique ran a few days ago. Check it out and maybe it will help you solve a few ribbon or embellishment dilemmas!

I don't know how you do the masking technique so seamlessly but I think you are the queen of that! If I ever get around to using my stamps (which I keep saying "someday") I think it's going to be a lot of cutting and pasting for me.
