Hope you had a fun Easter!!I made this Easter Card. I love this stamp and have had it for years and years. The stamp is from RubberBabyBuggyBumpers. The company is no more, but everytime I make this for Easter I think about how many stamp companies from way back when are no longer in business. It's sad. I 've been stamping for 31 years now and seen the companies come and go. Hope you enjoy my card :-)
Thanks for stopping by.

My First "Styrafoam" ATC... Yep Made with Styrafoam.....I'm in an ATC Swap here on one of the blogs....The them is a "Spring" theme, and I've have been having a ton of fun making them. This is my 3 set of Atc's for this swap and will be making another 5 atcs for a total of twenty. I was cleaning my stamps and laying them on a styrafoam plate to drain and dry them. I looked at the plate when I was drying my stamps off and thought... "*Light bulb Moment*"...ggg I bet I can use this for my Atc's. And I did.
I used gesso on the front to give it some tooth, painted and inked and added the embellishments. What do you think? Oh, and a tip/hint... If you don't have any shrink plastic and want a cheap way to try some... Well.....drum rollllllllllllllllllll...You can stamp on the styrafoam and ink and etc... then take your Heatgun and zap the styrafoam piece and it will shrink. I am going to show you that piece in a video that I will be doing later tonight. ggg
Leave a comment if you like and let me know what you think of the ATC... Thanks for looking. :-)

My Spring Atc's:I made these for a Spring Atc's swap. I'm going to be making two more sets and will post them here. I had a bunch of fun. I used my stencil paste colors and the one is made with a birdcage napkin background and wood birdies that I've embossed in purple embossing powders.

Forgot to add my Tickets for the swap, and my other mail art that I created, the ticket swap theme is "A Girl Thing". I used DCWV "A Girl Thing" paper stack and also added some girlie charms as well.
The mail art was a Spring theme... I used my Dreamweaver stencil paste and Dreamweaver's acrylic paints that they suggested to use 15 yrs ago which I still have in my tubes. This is how I added my color to the Dreamweaver's stencil paste. Then I added glitter to the flower. I used my acrylic brayer for the background and used TH distress ink on the brayer and rolled it all over the envelope and used watercolor cold press cs. I then used my stamps and stamped the tiny flower stamp which I think is from Judith stamps. The flower stencil is from Dreamweavers that I got a long while ago at the Stamp convention in Akron Ohio. The other theme is "Postage Frame" I had the TH postage frame and used that. I used his stamps and also used my Eclips machine to cut out Tim Holtz's stamps that I used on the first postage frame. Used my mom's old Bingo Chips to put on the bingo card... lol I also made some faux postage stamps for the next Postage frame and also used a real Postage stamps from France from a pal of mine that was sent to me :) Thanks for looking. :)
What's everyone been up to?It's been a while since I last posted. I have been hibernating like everyone else this past winter. Feeling like going no where and just trying to keep warm and staying inside.
Hoping that Spring will get here soon. :)
I have been swapping and creating and hosting swaps. At least the Mail box is smiling and when hubby walks up to the mailbox and brings it back to me, it puts a smile on my face to see all the fun bright cherri mail. :)
I'm going to put what I've made here on my blog down below but will also make a long over due video on youtube as well.
My YT channel is: Robin LaVonne Moore Hope you can come on over and watch and please... leave a comment if you like. Thanks. Here goes some of what I've made and worked on. Tfl :) The top two front and back are for a Mail art swap,the them is Vintage Grungy. The Splatter Grunge is from Stamp Cabana and the ink I used is Lighting Black,which has gold pigment ink with the black ink, it's really cool ink by Brilliance which I haven't used in a while and was fun to play with for a change. The papers are from Graphic 45. I cut out windows and put acetate inside to create a window on the front and back and then created a scalloped frame to use around the windows. I used my Spellbinders square nestabilities.
These bottom two front and back are made with Blackboard cs from Michaels line, I then stamped the background with gold ink and then stamped using white frost (Colorbox ink) and used extra fine white detailed powder, which I bought in bulk yrs ago and have about a cup full left. Which will last another lifetime for me...lol On the back I did the same as the front and carried the theme on. Made a coin envy. I used my We R Making Memories Envelope Maker board that I bought two yrs ago from HSN. I love this thing and use it all the time to make my homemade envies. I have all the templates from Green Sneakers that I bought at my first convention in Cleveland Ohio back in 1983 (30 yrs ago when I first started stamping) Their templates are really nice and easy to use too. But the Envelope Punch Board can make so many more things. Just type in search box at youtube "Envelope Punch Board" and you will see 100's of ways to use and make things. I've made a SnowWomen for a thank you favors and many other things that I wish I took a scan of and posted, they are long sent on to my pen friends. I just can't say enough about the Envelope Punch Board by We R Making Memories. Stamping Up has even got We R Making Memories to make their boards for them as well, that's how much fun they are to use. Thanks for looking. Hugs!
