Sunday Stamping - Valentines Stamping Skittle


Hello, Fireflies!

Sorry I'm a little late today!  I have a good excuse - it's my birthday!

Which probably means that tomorrow's post will be late, too...

Today's stamping challenge was either Valentines' Day, or Anti-Valentines' Day.  I personally don't celebrate the day because I think it's a Hallmark holiday.  But, the hubby and I do enjoy the day after, which is the day all the candy goes on sale!

Today's look starts with Sheswai Yowza.  And, YOWZA it is! so pretty and vibrant - and on sale at Ricky's NYC for about 3 bucks!

I have been trying and trying to get the Luminous Color Club flakie collection from Llarowe, and I finally scored it!  This is Color Club Pink Planet, a lovely flakie combo of copper, green, and purple in a slightly pink-tinted base.  Reminds me of the Nfu-Oh flakies!

I decided to do a different stamp on each finger.  DRK - A had a bunch of different heart stamps, and I couldn't decide!  I used Essie No Place Like Chrome for the stamping.


I had a little trouble with some of the stamps.  My fave is the skull with hearts for eyes... there were more hearts on the stamp, but my nails are too tiny to really show the detail!  Those of you with larger nail beds are so lucky!  I have kiddie-sized hands.


I love how the flakies peek through.  I love flakies.  Have I said that already?

I'm celebrating today with my free Grand Slam breakfast at Denny's! How exciting, eh?

    1. LOL, I was exactly the same way when I first got into stamping. I was lucky (or unlucky!) enough to come across someone who needed to sell a bunch of plates, including some from international distributors, when I first got started. If you join some stamping groups, they often put together group buys for international plates, or get coupon codes. Pueen and Shany and Bundle Monster and Cheeky have some good plates for decent prices on Amazon.com, too.

    1. It's why I still do these challenges! I need the practice - and the inspiration. :) lol. A squishy stamper, like the ones sold at Winstonia or Ninja Polish really upped my game, too. It made stamping so much easier! (although, as you can see, still not perfect! lol)

    1. Thanks, Autumn! I enjoy stamping, but it can get addictive - there's always a new plate that I want! The best bang for your buck is probably finding some Cheeky or Bundle MOnster plate sets or XL plates on Amazon. Pueen is also a good deal, too. There are so many international plate makers I want to try!

Thank you for your comments! They mean so much to me, and I read all of them, even if I don't always have a chance to respond.
