My first RubberMoon order + DecoArt sponsorship

My first order from RubberMoon Stamps finally came! It's my welcome package for being on their Creative Dream Team and I tell you what - these are beautifully made and packed with some amazing detail. I'm really excited to start working with them :) 
I also received news that I've been accepted into the DecoArt Helping Artists Program. Yippppeeeee! (This simply means that they're sponsoring me to create art projects, using products from their DecoArt® Inc. company.)


Now, let me show you a closer look at these stamps...
my RubberMoon welcome package :) (Includes Gina's Designs chipboard pieces and ATC and the Art Squares are from Inchie Arts; these are sold separately)

Here's what each stamp looks like, stamped on a piece of scrap paper....

From top, left to right: 
Dear Frida
Panda
Bamboo
Kae Pea - New Moon
Large Fern
The Baby has Arrived
Save the Date
Baby Carriage
Sitting in a Tree

I couldn't wait to test these beauties out, so, I jumped right it and created this 4x6 art card, recycled from an old postcard, featuring the Kae Pea - New Moon stamp.  

(Unfortunately, it's not a tutorial...but I hope you'll like it, anyway.)

I am going to the MOON!!!

Well, not literally...but I do have some amazing news I'd love to share with you:

It's official and at last, I can shout-it-from-the-rooftops that: I've been selected to join the creative design team of RubberMoon Stamps!!! Eeeeeekkkk! What a blessing - I'm so honored to be part of this amazing company. 

*** A big 'THANKS' to Kae Pea and the selection committee for this opportunity. ***

It seems a li'l bit ironic, due to the fact that I LOVE gazing up at the moon, day and night. The moon is so mesmerizing and hypnotic to me. I have created some of my best work in the wee hours of the night; just me and the luminous moonlight. All I can say is this: It was meant to be for me!

I'm one of the 6 new people they've chosen, from over 40 submissions! Wow! Someone pinch me!  Also, some of the alumni (past RubberMoon contributors) will be joining, as well. Our term starts this month and ends in December.

You can find my posts, once a month, on their blog...my first project will be published later this month!

Please click here to meet all of our team members. I think you will be impressed!

Make sure you visit the RubberMoon blog every Tuesday and Friday to see our art projects and be inspired!
