Today is a little bit of a different post.....
I have had to face it, after years of creating, blogging and being part of numerous design teams, I have had to decide to do a massive clear out. I am a huge hoarder of stamps and papers and my craft space is simply not big enough to hold it all, nor is there an earthly way I can use it all.
So here is the deal:
I am offering surprise packages for £12.
With Christmas not too far away, you may want to treat yourself or someone else with a little surprise pack like this....
For UK people the price of postage is included, for people outside the UK the price for postage has become so expensive, a minimum of £8 for the size of package you would be getting, that I would have to add a price onto the total and would have to request you pay for the postage too. I would negotiate a price with you depending on where you are.
Each pack will contain:
10 papers size 12 x 12" Brand new and in good condition
10 papers 6 x 6 and 8 x 8" (a mix of both) Brand new and in good condition
10 stamps (mounted rubber or polymer, a mix of both) these have been used so are not new, but in good condition!
And as a little bonus to say thanks, a card, tag or little book made by me.
Here is a sample of some of the papers, remember there will be 10 stamps also:
Papers will be a mix of older collections from: Graphics 45, Prima, Tim Holtz, Kaisercraft, 7 Dots Studios, Bo Bunny, Pion Design etc. All 12 x 12" papers are double sided, the other papers are a mix of one or two sided papers. All of the papers are high quality and will include some vintage, shabby chic etc styles. They can be used for scrapbooking, card making or mixed media work.
Most of my visitors here will know my style, I will try and be fair in the selection of both papers and stamps and include a good mix, there will be no cute stamps and some of them will even be brand new.
If you are interested, please email me
STOP PRESS, THE SALE IS NOW CLOSED! THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR INTEREST!
Now before I sign off I just wanted to show you how I used some of my papers to create backgrounds for some of my Christmas cards. Any paper can be altered to look totally different, that's part of the fun of using papers (well I think so anyway....)
Here is the finished card
Here is how it started, a piece of a Prima paper, not at all Christmassy.
Add some Gesso, sprays and paint (a piece of kitchen roll for texture and baby wipe to blend out hard edges are great for this).
Add a Tim Holtz Layered Snowflake, (I added another die on top and a little metal embellishment, spray them as well and add lots of glitter
Add a stamped sentiment, this one is from Tim Holtz
Mat it on matching card and you are done.
Here are two further finished samples, done in exactly the same way:
This one uses the Layered Leaf die, again on top of some Prima paper
And here is yet another one using the Layered Snowflake.
Well, hope this has given you some inspiration, have a good week!
Thank you for visiting and stay inky!!
