Dr Coffin’s Apothecary of Delights (Published)

Hello Everyone
To start this new week I want to squeeze in a quick post before I commence with sharing DT samples.
The latest issue of The Stampers’ Sampler contains pages of Halloween inspired artwork and I cannot begin to tell you how thrilled I was to have seen my submissions published within the pages.
One of the pieces I have published is this altered quad slide mailer which I had altered with Oxford Impressions’ Dr Coffin’s Apothecary set (available from Oxford Impressions and in the U.K. from That’s Crafty)lynne3Although not photographed in the magazine, this is the inside of the mailer. I so enjoyed altering this mailer, creating texture with very few paint supplies and a heat gun and being inspired by the stamps themselves.
lynne11Soon enough I will be sharing more of Dr Coffin with you but for this week I will be focusing on DT samples for new stamp releases from Darkroom Door and Crafty Individuals but before I leave you, thank you for your comments on Mr Turtle and for the chuckle I had reading that some of you thought he was experiencing an underwear adventure not an underwater adventure!!!  In a few up-coming posts I will be sharing samples, again, that see me outwith my comfort zone.
Have a wonderful week.

    OMG, Lynne! The inside of this mailer is spectacular!! Why didn’t Stamper’s Sampler feature a picture of the inside of this gorgeous creation, I don’t know! But, I’m glad that you’re sharing your pictures!! I may like the inside even more than the outside!! 😉 You’ve got me looking at my Dr. Coffin’s Apothecary set now…hmmmm…Halloween is right around the corner 🙂 Happy Monday!! XOXO-Shari

    Not surprising they published it – it’s amazing! Though if, as Shari says, they didn’t print a picture of the inside then they really missed a trick! It’s such a wonderful stamp set… doubt I’ll have a chance to get it out to play this year, sadly.

    Beautiful piece Lynne, looks like you pulled it out of an old drawer in some old antique shop, so realistic is your aging on this. ~Diane

    Hey Lynne – I have been gone a lot this summer and entertaining grand children – tons of summer work to be done.
    Your make is fabulous – I don’t know what an altered quad slide mailer is but I sure do love what you have done. Not only did I order this magazine but I subscribed to it as well. I really do love seeing what all you do!

    Fabulous piece Lynne, so well deserved to be published in the Stampers’ Sampler!!! I’m thrilled for you! I totally love the look of this quad mailer, both the outside and inside are wonderful… I also love the way you have used this lovely Crafty Individuals chipboard on the top, that makes great addition! 🙂 Coco xxx
