FREE SHIPPING in September!

Yup Free shipping in September on unmounted only orders (can also include our trimming and cushioning service, but no other items other than the unmounted stamps).

US and Canadian customers, place a $50 or higher unmounted only order and the shipping is free!

All other countries, place a $100 or higher unmounted only order and the shipping is free!

Great opportunity to gather your stamping friends around the computer and check out all our stamps,  make your wish lists, and place that order to get the free shipping!

Only good on unmounted stamps, no other items, but you can have them trimmed and cushioned for our 60¢ each deal and still get the free s/h.  If you happen across a stamp that doesn't have the trimming and cushioning option, please let me know, a couple did slip thru that I forgot to add that feature :) ALL our stamps are available these ways:  just plain rubber; on halos; on double sided cushion; or on static cling vinyl cushion (like the ez mount type). I do all the work for you for only 60¢ more per stamp.

I will adjust the order total if you pay by cc or refund the s/h if you do paypal. 

Please email with questions if you have them :) Good all of September only!

Laurel did a stamp demo at the doxie palooza...

and here is what I stamped :)
My friend Jean's Brewster stamped with green rainbow kaliedacolor pad, torn edges, brushed with the same greens, over a black background with our small paw print embossed in our Cow of Many Colors embossing powder, layered on a white card. 

Next is the Josie tattoo stamp (daughter Tina has this photo of Josie on her leg) on white paper, over a kaliedaocolor green brayered glossy paper, stamped with the small paw print in black dye ink.

The same Josie stamp done on white cardstock, stamped off (ink up, then stamp first time on scrap paper, and 2nd time on the card for a lighter image), and main image stamped with a kaliedacolor autumn color pad and the edge sponged with the same colors.

Finally a white glossy paper, brayered with the autumn colors of kaliedacolor, and our turkey doxie stamped with black dye ink on top.

Card Contest is FULL!

Our contest is now full with 10 participants! I can't wait to see the awesome cards you will be making!

Here is a card as a sample to show you what I am asking for in this contest. The bear is stamped on cream paper, and I colored the ice block with tombow markers (still on sale!) Image cut out and pop-dotted onto the green paper. Bible verse I found at Blue Letter Bible by typing in "bear" in their search. You could do any background technique on your cards, I just chose a plain background, just remember you can only use the bear stamp and no other stamps. This
 challenge will stretch you a bit :)

Here is another card I made, using distress inks on craft colored paper, stamping the bear in black distress and another printed out bible passage.  Im going to redo the bear and pop dot it cuz he looks a bit lost in the background.

Ideas for future contests are most welcome and encouraged :)

Card Contest! Sign up now!

Here is how the contest will work: (note this is a religious card contest). For each stamp you receive (up to 2), you must make 2 totally different cards. You can only use the stamp I give you (unmounted rubber) and no other stamps. You can use any technique or accessory you wish. Full cards please, not just fronts. Envelopes not needed. Card size is up to you but no ATC's. You must use a bible verse on the card front, printed by hand or printed from computer, but not a stamp. 
Stamps can be seen here: Alaska Mission For Christ stamps
on the web page, and they are all shown here. (I have more drawings for this category but they are not in rubber yet and aren't part of the contest stamps.)  Suggestions for stamps for the mission are greatly appreciated, especially word/phrase stamps!
Cost to enter the contest is $1.00 if you want 1 stamp or $2.00 if you want 2 stamps. The stamps are then
 yours to keep, but you must snail mail me the cards, no emailing of cards. This low fee is to help with postage and weed out those who just want free stamps. I've done this in the past and had no problems. Th
e $1 or $2 must be snail mailed, no paypal or credit card. Cash hidden in a layer of paper works fine. 

Email me privately please to join up, don't post on here cuz I may not see it right away. Tell your stamping friends!

I will be donating $1.00 per card received to the Alaska Mission for Christ, and the winning card creator (chosen by a vote and not me, and a randomizer if there is a tie) will receive a $30 gift certificate good towards anything that I sell and have instock on my web page.

Holler if questions, email me privately please ( to join.

Bottle Cap Card

We have 11 different bottle cap stamps and 8 colors of bottle caps. You get 10 bottle caps in each pack; sorry there are NO variety bags of the bottle caps. 
The stamps fit perfectly in the caps.

Here's a card I whipped up using an orange bottle cap and one of our bottle cap stam
I used 4 colors of distress ink -- antique linen, broken china and walnut stain on a piec
e of cream cardstock that I crumpled up first, then tapped the 3 colors into to create the
 background. The 4th color, dried marigold, was sponged around the edge of the card.
The happy birthday bottle cap stamp, was stamped with the first 3 colors of ink on a tan piece of cardstock and layered over the crumpled then smoothed out paper. An orange bottle cap was affixed with 2 popdots on top of each other, and I stamped the candle from our carved cupcake stamp with the walnut stain ink and cut it out and taped it on to the bottle cap.

I have 2 jars of the dimensional paint (one gold like shown on the card, and a deep metallic blue) to give away along with 2 scrapers!
The dimensional paint can be seen here and is used with your brass stencils to extend their use to not just dry embossing. 
Check out Denise's awesome card using the gold paint and the flip flop stencil we have! Hurry I only have 7 of those flips left, but have another style available too!

The blog candy sign ups are open til Saturday the 9th. Make sure your email a
