Welcome to the forth day of fun! I’ll keep this short and sweet, because I have a big project due today for class and am working my butt off to get it done in time. Oh, how I can’t wait for these crazy, excessive assignments to be over with. Only six more weeks.
Today, played with the new Summertime Charm stamp set and dies from Lawn Fawn and made a cute little jar of wishes. I stamped the jar and label twice – once onto some Neenah white cardstock and then another time onto masking paper. This way, I could mask off the label and the border around the outside of the jar for stamping in the stars.
I stamped the stars with Memento black ink once and stamped again before reinking, creating some nice grey outlines mixed with the black ones. The generation stamping, overlapping the stars and coloring with copics all helped to create this fun, vellum-like look. They look almost magical in the jar. The dies worked perfectly to cut out the jar and the stars. Can I remind you how much in love with that thin white border I am? Because it make everything stand out so well against the pink patterned paper. Love!
Here’s a look at today’s fab giveaway. A big thanks to Lawn Fawn for sponsoring this giveaway (they provided some of the items and I paid for others). Love you, LF!
How it works: All you have to do each day to enter is answer the question of the day. Of course, you could be fabulous and spread the word to your facebook friends, twitter followers, etc. by sending them to my blog as well. That would be really cool of you! You can leave a comment (just one comment, please – only the first one will count) until the end of March 31st, 2013. I’ll be drawing, notifying and posting the winners sometime on Tuesday, April 2nd. All winners will be randomly drawn using a number generator. International entries are welcome, but I do ask, if you’re under 18, that you have the permission of your parent/guardian(s) since you will have to give me your address so I can send you the goodies!
Here’s the question of the day:
What part of your craft stash needs a little TLC (tender loving care)? Reorganizing? Labeling? Time to destash?
The area most in need of attention in my craft area right now is definitely my collection of stamps. Since I’ve been in my current apartment, I don’t have enough wall space to hang my stamps like I did in my last place. So right now I have them in bins organized by manufacturer. This might work for some people, but it’s driving me crazy that I can’t see all of them out in the open! I’ll let you know if I come up with a better solution, but for now I’m just counting the days until we move again in August so I can once again have a wall full of stamps. Lol!
Thanks for joining me today. Wish me luck on getting this project done in time… I’m going to need it! And see you tomorrow for the big re-release of the Design Principles class. I can’t wait to re-introduce it to you!
