100 Proof Press Blog Hop!

Good day everyone!  It is time to announce the new and improved and updated and simply gorgeous new website of 100 Proof Press!

Plus, a wonderful blog that keeps everyone up to date on the latest happenings in the stamp world!

If you arrived from Gerri's blog, you are on the right track!
The order for the blog hop is Jennifer, Tracy, Gladys, Sara, Amy, Gerri, Alexa, and Nicole!  Go visit each and every one.....creativity at its finest!

I am not your typical stamper (in my opinion).  My creative juices flow in a lot of different mediums, but the wonderful stamps of 100 Proof Press add that extra punch and layer of creativity I certainly like.   I LOVE contradiction in my art.  And....the utilitarian benefit of using stamps in a creative business are priceless.

Below are a few ways I have incorporated 100 Proof Press Stamps into my little world of all things handmade!

FYI:  I love old stuff!

This is layers of old book pages...all colors and fonts with free form stitching all around the fantastic glass canning jar...with a teeny tiny little felt heart in the middles!

See the resemblance?

When attending a retail show I love to give something away.  Sometimes my little furry friend goes with me, so she does the giving.  This Boston Terrier stamp attached to a few pieces of kibble are a inexpensive and precious freebie!

When teaching an art class I always bring the supplies.  This is a fund craftsy stamp I simply applied to an eraser for everyone.  Love!

The "Spring Poppy" stamp contest was what landed me the honor of being a part of the 100 Proof Press Team!  The best!

Once again an old chair only helps to confirm the southern phrase "sit a spell"!

This cut glass pitcher stamped on a old playing card makes a great treat for the mail or tag on a gift!

I made some stationery from scraps of paper on my studio floor and sewed it on to a piece of card stock...the dust pan just adds to the beauty!

A fun box of old clothes pins I sell in my antique booth.  Remember, packaging is the key to sales!

A pin keep made from felt and stamped with a thimble!  Ah.

I LOVE children's doll hangers.  Sale a lot of them in my booth and use a lot in my art.  Great way to package them!

There is a prize  of  One Pack of Postage Paper Style #5, Postage Parts #5 and a Gift Certificate to the shop for $30.  Simply leave a post on all the blogs as you hop!  The winner of the prize will be drawn on Thursday 20th September on the 100 Proof Press blog.

Happy Hopping!
Go 100 Proof Press!

I like the way you incorporate stamps with sewing. The two compliment one another.
