Ahh, there is The Greeting Farm - Oh Boy! Ian, what a cutie. That slither of patterned paper is what I used to paper piece his shirt - now if that ain't resourceful.. you know the rest. Along side Ian are my very shabby looking boxes of ProMarkers. I must re-vamp them, but hey.. I'll just be saying that to myself for months while I get on with more adventurous and exciting stuff. In that Kraft-y coloured box to the right of the picture are all my new stamps which I have recently acquired, along with some ribbon from The Ribbon Girl and a few Kraft envelopes from Maya Road.
This morning my order from SU! came - super excited. I got the 'Bliss' clear stamp set from the saleabration, gorgeous designs - I'm off to make a card with them right now. Along side my first ever wheel stamp thingy - you know the type. And of course.. *drum roll please* some Crumb Cake ink - I'm waiting on the cardstock to arrive in a seperate shipping - it must have been flying off the shelves!! I plan on doing a comparison video between Bazzill Kraft, PTI Kraft and SU! Crumb Cake, once I have them all of course. So look out for that if your into you Kraft as much as I am.
The picture that follows is my order from Quixotic Paperie - fab site and super friendly and helpful (and talented) staff.
Can you tell I'm a fan of The Greeting Farm? Their images are adorable! Along side those are two rubber stamps from Kenny K's new collection and also a Marianne Creatable Die - Ribbon Flower 1 I believe. You can see it in use here. Its gorgeously gorgeous. But a pain in thee ass to remove the paper from after you have cut it.
QUESTION/ADVICE: Does anyone have a tip or trick for getting the paper out of the Marianne Dies without actually destroying the die or the paper and one that doesn't take half an hour. I was on for at least 10 minutes last night picking the paper out with the very tip of my craft knife! What a faf. But apart from that - beautiful results!
Thats all for now - I'm off to make a few cards with my new stuff. New stash doesn't leave that Kraft-y coloured box until it has been used at least three times (stamps that is..) I'm sticking to my resolutions as much as I can - I promise. *sweet smile*
