Hi everyone! How are you?

This weekend was Pittsburgh's Rubber Stamp show - its just a dinky thing, but all we get! My friend Josette and I go together every year and usually make a B-line for the Stampers Anonymous booth (we're both gaga for their display and selection of Tim Holtz products) but this year we found another booth that we loved.

It was from The Stampsmith, based out of New York. They specialize in super-detailed photo art stamps. We did a make & take using their new Landscapes plates, but I just loved their vintage images. They have a lot of movie stars (think Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield) and oodles of vintage images. They are made from photographs, so they are really detailed and fun to play with! I picked up the Fruit Crate Labels plate and another that I'll share later :)

I got to stamping right away!

I used the image of the Pear label, and colored it with a selection of my lightest Copic markers. I paired (hah!) it with some paper from Cosmo Cricket's Early Bird collection, and some other odds and ends. Good stuff! I can't wait to see what the other labels look like inked up.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope your day is fantastic!
