Demonstrating Stamping at the County Fair

I got the call about demonstrating rubber stamping at our county fair again this year. I did it a last year and the only difficult thing was getting my stuff in to the exhibition hall in a reasonable number of trips! I had fun, talked to a bunch of people, did NOT do any hands on, but had a LOT of samples for folks to look at. This year a friend will be joining me for part of the time, and I think I will be making cards for challenges. In fact I may challenge my friend, on the spot, as well. Make it fun for both of us. I'll let you know how it turns out. It's in just 3 weeks.

Saturday Sampler March Block

Here is the March block for my Saturday Sampler Quilt. It is limited in its colors, so it was a bit more of a challenge.

I think I have figured out why I really don't like my quilt squares on my blog...the background of the pages is definitely NOT complementary to these squares. I'll just have to live with it for a time.

My dad's card

I realized I never posted my card that I did for my dad for father's day. I used the KK Originals chili pepper only this time it is done by coloring the stamp with Watercolor Crayons, misting with water then stamping.

Paper: Kraft, Ruby Red, White, Certainly Celery
Ink: Ruby Red, Old Olive
Watercolor Crayons: Assorted Reds and Greens from SU Watercolor Wonder Crayons
Stamps: KK Originals, SU Itty Bitty BG and Wonderful Wishes.
I also did some sponging on the white with Ruby Red and on the Celery with Old Olive.
He loved it!
