Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampers Anonymous blog tour! Tonight we are delighted to show you projects using products that were available to us in our demo sneak peek from the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalogue.


You may have just come from Meighan Wheller's blog, but if you are starting here, don’t worry … you can make the complete tour just by following the links at the end of each post. There are 14 stops along the way and we hope you will visit each one to see the wonderful creations we have to show you! Please feel free to leave some comments along the way. 

At the end of each post there will be a link to take you to the next stop on the tour.


For this Blog Hop I have used some masculine stamps that I was very fortunate to have picked up in Canada last time I was home visiting family (and before I was a demonstrator.)  I'm drawn to ocean/sea stamps.


Stamp sets NEW! Beware Pirates & Medallion (returning)
Paper- Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Basic Black & Pacific Point
Accessories- Clear Embossing Powder, 1 3/4 punch, Pewter Brads, Cutter Kit, Sponges, Heat Gun, Poweder Pals
Ink -Pacific Point, Chocolate Chip, Versamark
Techniques - Sponging, Distressing & Cracked Glass

The Medallion looks a tad girly, but I was hoping to emulate the ornate Compass Rose you see on so many old Maps.

My second card which I have posted here before uses the NEW "Extreme Surfer" stamp

Stamps: Extreme Surfboard, Circle Circus, Basic Phrases
Paper: Old Olive, Pacific Point, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Inks: Baja Blue, Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery, Pacific Point, Wild Wasabi, Versamark
Accessories: Embossing Buddy, Heat Tool, Snail, Clear Embossing powder, Cutter Kit, Stampin' Dimensionals, Stamping Sponges, Powder Pal, Stamp-a-ma-jig
Techniques - Emboss Resist & Distressing


Thank-you for stopping by, I hope that you've enjoyed your look around.  Please hop along to Michelle Marchant
