made for a fantastic background option! Another big, fat THANK YOU! to Emily @basecampprintingco for letting me make a mess of her shop and for digging

Ten Prints In Ten Days!!! #Teninten

Ten in Ten  —  Ten prints in ten days! Talk about crazy!!!

ten in ten prints

Howdy Folks! This past few weeks I joined Emily of Base Camp Printing Co. (See her 10 in ten on Instagram: @basecampprintingco) in an attempt to produce 10 prints in 10 days. It was a wild ride and made for some late nights, but I couldn’t be happier with the body of work that came from it! All prints are available in the shop! Should you find one or two that you fancy,  just click on the title and it link you to the Etsy shop!

Also, a big “THANK YOU!!!”, to all that purchased a “Jorja Fiddle” print. Thanks to you, we were able to raise and donate $200.00 dollars for EHE cancer research. For more info, visit http://fightehe.org. This organization is raising money for research into the type
of cancer that Jorja fought for so many years.

For you Instagram followers (@onthetrolley), be the first to answer these 3 questions and win a free #teninten print of your choice! (Not including the “Jorja Fiddle” Print as this is to raise money for EHE Cancer Research.)  Good Luck!!!

Question 1:   Where was Johnny Cash Born?
Question 2:   Who wrote the song Pistol Packin’ Mama?
Question 3:   Where can you donate money to help fight EHE?

GOOD LUCK FRIENDS!!!!!!

Chicken_process_1

then transferred it to the stamp block and got to carving!
Chicken_process_2

It was off to the races, 1st layer, carved and printed!
Chicken_process_3

Here’s a close up…
Chicken_process_4

Decided to add another color… a touch of red…
Chicken_process_5

With the red done, it was back to the original block,
carving the 3rd/final layer from the initial yellow block.

Inking up the final block… onward and upward…

Holiday Card Bonanza!!!

It’s that time of year!

Time to send out your very best, be it truth or lies, to all those you care the most about, or to those you kinda-maybe-sorta care the most about,  or at least to those you care enough about to make them insanely jealous of all your incredibly awesome accomplishments.

Good news, we can help!

Holiday Cards

That’s right, we carved up 3 new cards for the holidays and hope you will get in on the fun. You can use these along with your favorite family pic or just add a friendly holiday greeting and “get it in the post” (say it with the accent) to your Auntie Em across the pond.

Here’s some ideas we put together:

A. JOY A7 Sample    B. Eggnog A7 Sample    C. Noel #10 Sample

A.  JOY: A7 Card (5″x 7″ Landscape) Printed on Cranes 110# Lettra with a 4″ x 4″ pic.

B.  PEACE LOVE & EGGNOG: A7 Card (5″x 7″ Portrait) Printed on Cranes 110# Lettra with a 4″ x 4″ pic. (Also added some fancy gold lick’em stick ’em photo frame corners!)

C.  NOEL: #10 Card (9.75″x 3.875″ Landscape) Printed on Cranes 110# Lettra 3.5″ x 5″ pic.

We just used a little double stick tape to attach the pics, but hey why stop there?
Get crazy, use brads, glue down some ribbon, you could even go as far as sewing on the the pictures. Main idea here is to get creative and have fun with it!

There is one catch though team… they are in limited supply.

So what are you waiting for?
