Last night was crop and we a wonderful time. My creative energy was not to par so I made a couple of funky looking cards before settling on a design right from the idea book.
In the process of playing we were able to use some old and new products and review them as a group.
I have had a kit in my crop bag for years and for some reason never opened it! I normally have a sanding block on my work desk and I guess I never needed to crack open the kit until last night! What a nice little kit. It has great sanding power with little effort and beautiful results.
This new scrubber is the size of a stamp pad but boy does it clean some stamps! I was using StazOn ink with the StazOn cleaner on this little power house and almost all of the ink came off my stamp! I have always had problems getting StazOn off my stamps. I also love the size because it is small enough to fit into our crop bags without sticking up!
If you know me you will know that I am not a huge “marker person”. When they announced the new Alcohol Markers at convention I was more excited for Kaela than me. She wanted to start using Alcohol Markers in her art and I wanted an affordable way to start her collection. (win –win). Last night I used them for the first time! Holy Cow I think I am going to be a “MARKER PERSON”! They have almost no streaks and are so easy to use. I have not tried to blend but I think I will have Kaela show me how. Amy came up with embossing the edges then using the markers to color so I think I will try that soon just to play. But now I have even more on my wish list to buy.
Pun Fun Stamp:
This is the stamp set that I was using last night. I do not have artwork yet (long story) but as soon as I do I will post the final card. I was using the lemon stamp. Find Pun Fun in your catalog and you will see the card I am working on. I had so much fun making one that I started making a set
I know it is a sickness…..
