Sharing one of my favorite photos today. This is Spunky, as a baby, he couldn’t even sit up by himself. I was trying to take a cute photo – I even used real black and white film! Anyway, Buster had to come over and see what was going on. He was sooooo good with the boys!
You can find more details on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog!

Today I have a 5 x 7 canvas with stamped tea cups, precariously stacked.
I had the idea in my head, loved the direction it was going in with the stamped and colored cups, but then it just seems like it needs something else…but I ran out of time and brain cells over the weekend. This is one of those things that I’ll set aside and most likely rework until I am happier with it.
On that note though, I like that it really looks like an elegant Victorian tea cup. I used embossing ink, carefully applying it to the rim only, by inking just that part of the die template, called reverse stenciling. I embossed in the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® machine, then added embossing powder and heated.
The saucer is heat embossed the same way. I curled the cups to make them look rounded, and used SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ 3D Foam Squares and Crafty Foam Tape to give the cups some lift.

Welcome to our TWO-day event!
You should be joining me from Natalie Denver’s blog, if not then head to the beginning on the Unity Stamp Co. Blog.
With all the blog-swaps that are happening out there lately, I can’t think of one more exciting than when the amazing women of SPELLBINDERS™ get together with the rock stars of UNITY STAMP COMPANY!
We can’t wait to show you a special line of coordinating products featuring SPELLBINDERS dies and SAMANTHA WALKER for Unity Stamp Co. rubber stamps!
Not only are we thrilled to be collaborating on such a special 2-day event, but ONE of you will win ALL of the coordinating stamps and dies from the Samantha Walker collection! We will also have 1 winner each day from the comments that will receive 1 Samantha Walker stamp set and coordinating dies.
So be sure to enjoy our hop both days, leave comments on all of the blogs each day and check back to see if you won!
(winners will be posted on Wednesday, October 19th on the Unity Blog and Spellbinders Blog)
My project is a candle band and coordinating gift box.
I used the Ornate Artisan Tags and Accents die template set from Spellbinders. There are a few more dies in this set, but these are the ones I used on the project.
I stamped with the Ornate Artisan Stackers stamps, which coordinate with the dies, and were both designed by Samantha Walker! (This stamp set is huge, these are just the ones I used, there are so many shapes and phrases in this set!!)
For the coordinating box, I used Spellbinders Edgeabilities® Classic Triple Scallop set to make the band around the Square Petal Top Box.
Of course I used my Spellbinders Grand Calibur® machine!
Papers are all from My Mind’s Eye, Stella and Rose Collection, Hazel and Hattie pattern sets. I stamped with Clearsnap Colorbox Black Pigment ink. I used SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ Black 3D Foam Squares for the layers on the candle and Crafty Power Tape to hold the ribbon on the back of the label and a few small pieces on the box tabs and to wrap the Classic Triple Scallop band. Ribbon is from Offray.
