Thanks for popping in!
It’s 6am and I thought I’d catch up with you before the show.
Yesterday went swimmingly – really well.
After all those fears and worries about it!
Lots of interest, plenty of orders.
the Groovi went down an absolute storm,
so tomorrow I will go back!!
I met lots of very genuinely interested and hands on women.
A few suits looking to make a quick buck out of us, but the creatives were there in force.
In the meantime,
how about a quick step by step
using the new wee houses and shops?
These stamps are awesome!
Stamp out a selection of them next to one another
on a piece of Theuva Card, and colour one of them in.
Cor, wouldn’t you just love him for a neighbour?
Let’s glaze the colourful one.
Go over the colour with a Versamark Pen,
and coat with Clear Embossing Powder
Heat gently from underneath using a heatgun.
Cut out masks.
I go back and forth on whether we should get the masks machine cut and supply them.
On the one hand it’s very convenient.
On the other hand, they are really easy to cut out.
Mind you, so are the Letterbox stamp boxes,
and we can’t make enough of them!
What do you think?
AYE or NAY?
Cover the houses, add a mini moon mask, and then
lightly dust back and forth with a Clarity Stencil Brush
loaded with Black Distress ink.
These brushes were selling like hotcakes here at the CHA yesterday.
Trim the card back and edge with a Black Sharpie pen and ruler.
Mount on a piece of card which brings out the colour
in the house that you don’t want next door.
Keep it simple, eh.
I’d best get up and get going.
Lying here in bed with my Mac Book Air isn’t going to get it done!
Love and hugs from California,
