Hi friends! We got back from the Heirloom stamp show late last night and boy, what a blast it was! I got to hang out with old friends and make new ones! I taught 2 classes Friday that I think went really well and I got to enjoy the convention too! I put cash aside all year long so that when the stamp show comes along I can shop without pain LOL! And I did have some cash in my pocket when I came home. Have a look at what I got:
Below is a list of vendors I mentioned. Please note, some of these vendors may be wholesale and only offered to consumers via stamp shows or retail stores. I have also noted any free domestic shipping options I saw on the sites, many have reduced international shipping too at those spending thresholds. If you are one of these vendors and you have a special you would like to share leave it in the comments!
But first! I want to thank Shilpa from Artyshils Art World for the beautiful portrait, see the video here.
Lost Coast Designs (free USA shipping over $100)
Carmen’s Veranda (free USA shipping over $100)
Rubbernecker (free USA shipping over $25)
Technique Junkies (free USA shipping over $75)
Impression Obsession (free shipping over $50)
Local King Rubber Stamps
Stampendous (not a vendor but I bought some of their stamps from other vendors)
Eyelet Outlet Free USA shipping over $50
I also bought some things at Micheal’s while I was there because there is not one near me.
I also mentioned buying the Elegant Writer pen to do a technique I saw artist Karlyn Holman do in this video.
Now I am going to have to get some more binders to store my stamps in! I need to write down all of the ideas I want to try before I forget. I put all my new goodies in a basket so I will use them soon rather than file them away and forget. I highly recommend you attend a stamp show if you can. You will get fun ideas from vendors and learn about stamp companies you never would hear about otherwise. It keeps the hobby thriving too and that is good for all of us (I did my part on that score!) So, what stamp would you like me to use first? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
