Wow, what a weekend! I had such a blast at the Heirloom Stamp Show in West Springfield MA this weekend! A few people actually came up to me to say “hello” because the recognized me from my blog, I felt like a celebrity! Now I know how Martha Stewart must feel, yeah right! 😛 I was so surprised at how tired I was today though, I uploaded the final videos, made a trip to the grocery store and unpacked my bags and that was my day in a nutshell. I didn’t put anything away though, it is all sitting on my craft table because you know I’m gonna show you what I bought…just not tonight, I’m too droopy and poopish for that! So without further ado here are the final demos!
Let’s start off with Stacey from Sweet Stamps who is going to share a different glitter sheet stamping technique (I think I like this better than the permanent marker technique!):
One of the booths I liked the most was Rubbernecker Stamps, I shopped it both days actually and the ladies doing the demos were so sweet, here is Julia with a very easy shading technique and a DIY inkpad idea:
Ann from Rubbernecker showed us how easy it is to get a watercolor look with their watercolor flower stamps:
Here is a super fun technique from Pat, the Technique Junkie herself, of Technique Junkies Newsletter, using Goosebumps spray mist. I love how she encourages us to use what we have!
Mary Beth from QKR Stampede shows us an easy way to use metal leafing, I have leafing that I never got the hang of so I can’t wait to try this, really cute stamps at her booth too (I came home with a couple!)
Stamp On It! had some beautiful samples of Peel Off Stickers that were embossed, it looks really complicated but it is easy, check it out!
And that wraps up the Heirloom Productions Stamp Show & Paper Arts Festival coverage from me! I hope you enjoyed these reports as much as I enjoyed bringing them to you. I highly recommend visiting a stamp convention if you can because it is so fun and inspiring. Also big thanks to all of the vendors that graciously let me film their demos and to Heirloom Productions for allowing me to cover the event. Thanks for visiting the stamp show with me and til next time happy crafting!
