Cherry Pie gadget stores

I don't know how many of you know that several of my rubber stamps images are also sold as T-shirts, mugs, stickers, ipad/ipod/iphone skins, keychains, house items and many others.
I have licensed some of my images for years and I would like to invite you to check them out.
I can always add more images. If you particularly like one of my stamps and you are interested in having a T-shirt or any of the other items you will see in the stores, I can do it for you.
The zazzle store even lets you customize the items. You pick what you like and you can add names, words, change color etc...
Check it out here ZAZZLE STORE


I also have several Cafepress stores. My most popular one is cafepress.com/lenzart that was also the first one I opened. 
Here you can see the Dancing Skelly store
and I Am a Goddess and the Cat Smiles store :-) Check out the apron. It's one of my most popular items. Any cat lover cooking friend will appreciate it.
These are just to name a few of the several other stores I have on Cafepress.

The newest store I opened is with Society6 and here's the link.



   I hope you find something you like and some new gift ideas for the "difficult" friend. A personalized T-shirt or card or mug is usually appreciated and these items are quite affordable too.
There is also an easy return policy so give a look around!

New brochure for the latest rubber stamps

Today I worked at a brochure. It was a lot of fun (and many hours on Photoshop....).
Here's the result. It's a tri-fold format brochure and I sent the pages to Vistaprint for the professional printing.

It's been a while......

Summer flew.... and it's still too hot here in FL. Looking forward to October in hope of some real breathing!
I'm sorry I neglected this blog and I don't have any new stamps to announce but I will work on it and hopefully something will happen before too late!
Meanwhile I show you a few cards from the last swap with my Yahoo group. If you want to see all of them, you can join the group. We have so much artwork in the photo folders!

This swap was dedicated to Edgar Allan Poe

The Hoppin' Winner!!

It's the prize drawing day! I had 114 messages and I'm really happy and grateful. It's been fun to meet you all!

And the winner is........ #5! (Lucky me that I didn't have to count too much!)
Thecraftypagan, or Rowena from the U.K., won this ATC booklet that will be mailed as soon as I get a mailing address.
Congrats Rowena! Hope you will like our collaborative effort.... and maybe you will join us in the Yahoo group to play with us!
 In the next days I will show the photos of the pages inside the booklet. First I wait for Rowena to receive it so I won't spoil her surprise :-)

Have a wonderful Springtime! Ciaooooo!

Spring giveaway! Hoppin' Good eggs!

Here's my giveaway! You must leave a little message on this post between today and March 28th to be entered for winning it. On the 29th I will draw a winner using the random number generator.

Remember to go check the other "good eggs" at http://hoppingoodeggs.blogspot.com/
Each blog listed will offer a giveaway too!

Here's what you get from me: an ATC booklet with 12 ATC's made by my Yahoo group! It's our last collaborative project (or swap). I was left with one extra booklet since one player dropped off and now here's your chance to win it! The theme was "WORDS" so each page has a word written somewhere and some wonderful stamping to illustrate it.  Here I show only the photo of the cover but if you join the Yahoo group you can see every page in the photo folder.......

Good luck and happy Spring to everyone!

PS. I want to make clear that everybody can post, no matter where you live! I ship worldwide at my cost. The only problem is that you must give me a way to reach you because some of these comments are coming without a way to write you back or to find you through your blog! If I pick one of these winners (like PaulineC to name one), I will have to pick a second one and you will loose the chance to win! :-(

March giveaway(s) from Cherry Pie!

I don't know where time goes. It's been nearly a month since my last post....... life got in the way, weather was colder than Florida residents can handle and I had a lot of work too. Always welcome of course....... but I'm not keeping my promises of posting here regularly and offering new giveaways........
Soooooo.......... now I will have two giveaways! One for everyone and one for one lucky winner.

March is my birth month......
First giveaway: I'm giving a 10% off to all orders over $25 (before taxes and postage) that I get until end month. ONLY orders from my website and NOT from eBay or etsy!
In order to get the discount you must mention "10% happy birthday" in the message window of your payment.
I will refund your account as soon as I process your order.

On March 24th (my actual b-day) I will post a giveaway. It will be something handmade........ come back to see what it is! :-)
I will pick ONE winner among all the comments I will get in the next post.
You will have only 5 days for leaving a comment so make sure you come back to this blog one day between 24th and 28th March!


Happy Spring! x

My OWOH win!

Tomorrow I will mail the 3 gifts to their winners...... meanwhile I want to show off one of my wins! :-)
I don't have it in my hands yet but it's travelling from England this week and I can't wait to get it. I want to show you the photo because I think it's so cool and such a neat gift idea!
 
It's a sterling silver pendant. I choose the personalization including the butterfly and the color of Swarowki bead (I had an AB because I like diamonds! ;-)
Plus Catherine added the star charm because I like stars and she didn't have a stamp of a star for my symbol.
Isn't it cool? Visit Catherine's etsy store to see all she does and sells!

PS. I got it and I LOVE it!

Gothic arch

OK, I admit it's not all new work. I made that Gothic arch a year ago or more... you can also see it in the old posts...... but I repainted it and I added the background ....A little recycling...... :-)
The background is done with tissue paper.

Halloween art

I love Halloween and all the spooky decorations........ it's the only holiday I truly enjoy.
I drive around every year just to see the graveyards popping up in people's lawns as long as monsters, witches and carved pumpkins. I wish I were a child in America!

I want to start stamping something spooky soon. Meanwhile I attach here one of last year's cards.
I'm going to feature all the spooky art from all members of the Cherry Pie ning group soon so please join the group if you haven't already and share your Halloween artwork with us. At least one Cherry Pie stamp is preferred...... Check the beautiful Goth, magic, spooky stamps from Cherry Pie!

Waiting for the Art doll swap pages......

While waiting for the players to send in their pages, I have played on an extra one myself. This is not my main entry in the book (that I'm keeping secret until I send all the books back).
I have used only the art doll plate to do this. First I cut out all the doll parts that I stamped on an old dictionary, then I made my naked doll by sticking the pieces together.
After this I stamped the body on the reverse side of pink paper and I cut it out adding a skirt.
Last I stamped the shoes on the reverse side too so I could have pink shoes instead of black.
A little glue, some hair doodling and a fancy hat finished the doll that was attached to a piece of scrapbook paper and stamped with the tiny Cherry Pie butterflies. Pretty easy fun project.
