Craft Goodness for Sale!

Update - some items sold 
Soiree Mama Elephant

Summertime Charm Lawnfawn
Whats Cooking HeroArts

It's a rainy summer afternoon here in Chula Vista, California. (Rare I know...) I have been dormant from blogging and video making. My creative endeavors seem to have been far and few between, I still love to make things and most of my projects are for specific events, people or purposes. What I realize is that I simply have too many things and I am committed to focusing on what I enjoy the most ... all of these items I really liked when I bought them but now I am focusing on the types of card, projects and memory pages I want to make -- so some things need new homes and crafters who will break them out and put them to good use. More stamp sets and crafting items will be posted as time permits.

The scoop on all my goods:

  • many things are brand new and not too old
  • most are universal in design and offer lots of versatility 
  • a few have pieces "missing" which means I bought it for the one or a few stamps or dies that I liked, but the balance of the set is not going to be used by me, and is being offered at a nice discount
  • if a stamp is yellow it still stamps fine the photopolymer clear stamp material has just turned a color
  • I have a dog who hangs in my craft room but does not craft
  • our home is 100% non-smoking
  • the prices shown in the photo includes the basic USPS shipping in a standard envelope and any payment processing fees
  • payment via Paypal only
  • U.S. customers only due to international shipping and duty costs :(

Baby Shower Gift Wrap and Hand Made Card

Special Decorating for a Special Occasion

I was inspired by the Stretch Your Stamps 2 Class.
I made the card using the Floral Stamp Builder lessons
and then cut some vinyl with dies and affixed the die cuts to 
this red beach bucket from Michaels Arts and Crafts.

Adding white tulle and pink tissue paper -- voila!
Better than a store bought gift bag if you ask me.

Happy Crafting!

Fierce Card - Stretch Your Stamps 2

Stretch Your Stamps 2

Versions of Stamp Builder Cards.

A great sentiment for a new baby girl card!

I was inspired by one of the card designers and utilizing a Spellbinders scalloped oval die to create an embossed frame.

I used the AveryElle Laurels stamp set, WPlus9 Fresh Cut Florals and Strictly Sentiments for the design under the sentiment.
The sentiment is from Mama Elephant Everyday Greetings,
Three ink pads - see supplies below.
The gold ink is so beautiful it is Delicata Gold.

Tsukineko Delicata Golden Glitz Metallic Pigment Inkpad, Full

The bottom card was my test card,
I tried the double or drop shadow ink and had to cut a new oval but I decided to photograph it anyway.

It seems to have separated... I will post a video of my experiences with three white inks.

Lawn Fawn Critters in the Burbs stamps and coordinating dies.Craftwell eBrush Airbrush System - sky, tree and grassCopic coloring, embossing, wood grain washi tape, paper piecing and masking.Love you die cut Simon Says Stamp.

I decided not to keep the Craftwell eBrush Airbrush System. I thought for the cost it would not be a tool that I would use regularly and I will stick to the Copic Air Can solution. The eBrush was inconsistent in its ability to fit my sized markers. I may do an unboxing and demo video if you are interested.
