More Skull And sCrossBuns!!

I've already told you all about this amazing shop called Skull And CrossBuns run by an amazing artist and mum of two from the UK called Emily, right?

Well, I'm just here to show off the amazing new goodies I got myself from her shop! After getting my two awesome custom stamps made, I fell in love with some her stamps in stock, and so I went and got me some!

It was just after I had come back from Maiden's concert, so of course, I had to get her Keep Calm and Rock On! stamp, and thinking of adding a more personal touch to both b-day and Holidays cards & envelopes, I got myself a super cute Cupcake stamp and a Skull & Cross Canes stamp that is perfect both for Hallowe'en and Yule/Christmas/Winter Solstice!

Aside from how awesome her stamps are, one of the best things about Emily is how cute she makes her packaging, you almost feel bad for ripping into it!

Not only I got my stamps, but she also sent me an extra one, quite the perfect companion for the Keep Calm and Rock On! stamp, a Devil Horns stamp! (I'd like to remember here the great Ronnie James Dio, who was the one to bring them to rock'n'roll!)! These two really are the perfect pair! I can't wait to start using them, though I'm still plotting how!

The Cupcake and Skull & Cross Canes I already have a very clear idea of what I'll be using them for!

Cupcake stamp I've already used for adding some cute cupcakes all over a friend's b-day card and envelope! No more sending boring envelopes in the mail, I'm all for making people smile before they even open the envelope! ;) And this cupcake is perfect for it! So cute and even has a heart!

Skull & Cross Canes will be my stamp for adding a personal touch to all my holiday cards and again, envelopes! I always think envelopes look too boring all blank with just the address on them, and drawing something by hand on all of them can be a bit daunting, perfect solution? A stamp!

These are for sure not the last stamps I will be getting from Emily's shop, and we're already plotting together a super special stamp, but I won't be saying any more, waaay too soon for that!

  8. I LOVE the "Keep calm and rock on" stamp. That one is adorable. In fact, they all are! I agree that it's nice to have a package that is fun on the outside as well.

    It's funny you mentioned Dio. He died the day I graduated from college, so I threw up some devil horns in his honor as I was sitting among the graduates. ;-)

  9. Thank you for introducing me to this awesome shop! Her stamps are adorable!!
