Alpha Stamps Gypsy Fever Blog Hop
I don’t know what it is about gypsies: the cacophony of colors, the sparkles and coins, the fun fortune, the gorgeous crystal balls but they all of us at Alpha Stamps in a feverish state. No worries, this is one fever you’ll be glad to catch so we hope you’ll join the fun, join the Gypsy Swap and play along for your chance to win a gorgeous gypsy prize. We’ve peeked into our crystal ball but we’re not telling. If you want to find your fate, here’s how: if you visit all 4 Design Team Members’ blogs and figure out the fortune, you will have a chance to win over $100 of art supplies chosen for the Gypsy Fortune Teller Swap! Read each blog carefully and look for the word in italics. Unscramble the words and be sure to leave the Gypsy Fortune in a comment on the Alpha Stamps Blog!
Plus, one person who comments on this post will be chosen at random to receive a piece of art created by me. I’m offering up this Fairy Follies Theatre created with the Small Nouveau Theatre Collage Sheet as well as the Small Diorama Box; both from Alpha Stamps.
With the glittering gold and punches of red, it reminds me of some of the gorgeous gypsy supplies, currently on sale, including FIVE new collage sheets designed especially for this swap. The goodies were all so gorgeous I had a hard time picking and choosing for my design team projects. They’re all so fun and inspiring that I have so many ideas I’ve decided to participate in the swap myself. It will be my first-ever swap and I can’t want to see everyone’s stunning creations.
With the gypsy theme, I knew I wanted to do something with a crystal ball so I decided to create one. I use a plastic ornament and placed the gypsy inside the ball for a change. The ball is perched upon some teeny tiny dice on a table made from a Mega Bottle Cap that has dominoes for legs. Of course a gypsy has got to have beads and fringe, so the table trim is the fun and fabulous Yellow Gold Beaded Fringe.
For my other project I used the Concertina ChipBoard Pennants to construct a Gypsy Caravan. As you can see here, you can peer inside to see the fortunes being spun and told. I also used the Card Players Collage Sheet, the Gypsy Beauty Collage Sheet, the Talisman Collage Sheet, the Queen of Hearts #3 Collage Sheet and several other selections from the gorgeous Gypsy theme.
I’ve got my eye on several other components for the Gypsy Swap including the Brass Halo, the Indian Matchbook Labels, the Iridescent Moon Mix and the Phrenology Collage Sheet. I do hope you’ll join this glittering gypsy gang and take part in the swap. What Alpha Stamps products have caught your eye?
