Paper Crafter's Library Spotlight

A big THANK YOU to Andrea for offering me a company spotlight on The Paper Crafter's Library. Thanks and a warm welcome to everyone who is visiting my blog for the first time as a result :)

As you probably read in the Paper Crafter's Library I am offering some blog candy! There will be a draw on both their blog and my own for a set of three stamps. Simply write a comment on each post to be entered into both raffles.

This candy will include: Ornament Faerie, Celtic Dove Set and Celtic Heart. On the Paper Crafter's Library I will be offering Water Droplets, Circle Cluster Set and Celtic Star 2 through their site.

Here's a picture of this blog candy! Thanks for your comments! Much appreciated :)

I've also got a couple of cards to show you. I had a lot of fun with paint and layering the stamps. When it was obvious that the page wouldn't work as a whole I cut it up and formatted it into two cards. I used watercolours and Memento inks for the Sea Bubbles Set stamp. Free flowing fun.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Don't forget to pop over to The Paper Crafter's Library. I will have an updated biography up there beginning at 8:00AM tomorrow (Friday) as well as three more stamps up for grabs.
Ryn

  6. Ryn -

    I first saw your artwork on Linda Cain's blog. She created a piece of art using your water droplets stamp. I remember thinking then how stunning they looked. Having read your story, I give you lots of credit for following your dream. I know it could not have been easy. But, I for one am glad you persevered, because now I can buy the fruits of your labor - LOL!
    Have a wonderful trip and can't wait to see what lovely peices of art come from the trip.

  10. I'm here by way of PCL. What a great reference to add to your growing resume -- ha! I love successs stories. Your work is incredible and a nice addition to the sometimes predictable world of stamping. I'm really liking the water droplets and circle stamps that were featured on PCL, but also love the Celtic Doves and the Heart of Light. I love Celtic knots. I'm looking forward to hearing more about your big trip. I'm sure you'll get a lot of inspiration for new designs and projects to incorporate into your growing repertoire.

  23. Ryn Sweetheart,
    I'm so deeply touched & inspired by your story. I was introduced to your circle & water droplets stamp set by Eileen Goodwin in one of our online groups a few months back & the STUNNING heARTistry that came from those textures, still just warms my heart to this very moment. I'm sooo excited for you & that Andrea showcased your journey along with a give-away. This is truly amazing and no words can express my gratitude for you generosity.

    Here is to wishing you the best on your trip & looking forward so much to getting my order...as it's been a looooooong anticipation for me to receive the sets that started my inspirational love for your heARTistic journey. Best Wishes and much Love to you.
    HUGS xx

  26. wow your stamps are fantastic. I love the Celtic ones a lot and I love our card that you made with them. I am always searching for new ideas and I like the leaves. We are here in Fl so no change of season so to speak but still gives me ideas. I got here from the Paper Crafter's Library and will go back there for the comment. Good luck with your business I know it is tough to get started as I just got my online business online and hope it takes off soon.
