Release Day and Farming Oliver Previews

All new fall stamps are now available!  Click here to start shopping now!  Thank you for all the fabulous comments on Lucy...Brent really appreciates them too. :)

My new Basic Grey paper came on's about time, lol. So I just had to open and cut into it right away!  I colored in Oliver's overalls and hat with my B97 Copic marker and then took a piece of denim and put some colorless blender on it.  Then I pressed it against the blue to get it texturized. 

Paper: Basic Grey Pyrus
Stamps: Sparkle Creations, sentiment is Amuse
Copics, PTI Buttons, and Twine

Today I am giving away a Farming Oliver stamp. Make sure to check out the rest of the DT's lovely creations and then come back and comment on the Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps blog for a chance to win. You have until midnight EST to comment and the winner will be announced tomorrow morning.
