Viva Las Vegastamps! DT Tryouts!!!

I love this company's stamps- Viva Las Vegastamps! they are quirky, fun and detailed. Totally up my alley. I so would love to be on their design team. One of my favorite things about these stamps is they drive me to create unique and interesting projects. 
My first project for the tryout is this colorful quirky altered lunch box. Super glossy, with bold beautiful color. I used lots of the stamps on this mainly from plate 922.

 This tin will be a box to put Project Life cards in and is a gift for my sister-in-law for Christmas (shhhh don't tell her). I used a tissue paper technique to get the stamps on the tin. I will be sharing how I did these techniques in later posts over the next few weeks. 
  Here is the backside of the tin- love this funky "Sitting Elephant" guy! 
 Some close up shots with the great detail that makes me love this tin. "Whimsical Bug" hurdles the latch. The more time I spend with this tin the less chance my SIL will have of getting itl!!!!
My favorite stamp shockingly is "Whimsical Owl".

Here are the shots of the sides of the tin. The kitty quote is something my family  reference a lot. Yet another fun thing about making your gifts you can personalize them to fit the receiver. 
Side 2: of course the fish in boots is trying to get the flying bee called "Bee Hung Up"!

My 2nd project for the Viva Las Vegastamps! DT tryout is a mixed media canvas. There are multiple techniques on this canvas but one of my favorite stamp techniques is turning a stamp into an embellishment using utee. Again I will share this technique later in the week but it creates a unique embellie that you can color to suite your canvas, scrap book page etc. Very dynamic and with a cool metallic shiny finish. 
On this canvas I used the Viva Las Vegastamps! Moon stamp. Ironically I have wanted a stamp like this for years so I was very excited to find it! Here is a close up of the embellishment. Totally cool!

 3rd project is an art journal book. The cover was made with a gelli print technique. The colors are vibrant & luscious.


Inside the book all the pages are gelli prints, comprised of paper, tags, envelopes with fun flips and flaps. I put some of my favorite stamps and quotes in this book. The stamps were colored in different ways, some with spray inks, markers, twinkling H20's... This is actually a class I just taught on the weekend- I love this little book!!!

Back ground gelli plate with some hand made washi tape. Here I used one of the "whimsical houses" stamps from plate 910a. The "skinny girl" comes from plate 922.

Here is another page using the "whimsical bird in mask" eclectic & fun Viva Las Vegastamps! For a stamp addict like me this company is heaven! Thanks for taking the time to look at my creatios and giving me the opportunity to join your great company.
