Thanks for popping in.
Been clearing up from Friday’s Facebook LIVE Moment of Clarity, when we put those cool Lino-cut stamps through their paces. Did you join us?
We’ve decided to have another stampy Craftalong session with them on Wednesday, June 2nd at 7pm. So that will give you plenty of time to order them if you haven’t already got them. I’ll let you know ahead of time what else you’ll need to join in, which ink pads etc. But you can always improvise, can’t you! I’m thinking Distress Oxides, but alcohol inks would be great too. Let me have a think…
They are very cool, even if I say so myself. Dave brought up a piece of sanded wood from the garage, and I stamped the daisy in black archival on the wood block…perfect.
Love that authentic grain. So arty! I wiped the edges with a cloth before it was completely dry, to age it, and push some ink into the grains…
If you join me in the SHAC SHAC tomorrow at 10, see if you can spot this little wood block behind me on the shelves!
Something else I wanted to mention. Remember the WIGIG Sale we had a couple of weeks ago? The When it’s Gone It’s Gone Sale? Well, you certainly seemed to like that idea! And we are very happy, because it helped us clear a few shelves too! So we decided to have another WIGIG WEEK! The stock levels aren’t quite as high on the hundreds of plates and stamps we have loaded into the HALF PRICE sale offer this time, but nevertheless, we can do this thing! Starts tomorrow and runs for a week. Unlike our usual sales, when we just keep making, when it’s gone it‘s definitely gone though.
And, as if you needed encouraging to have a rummage when there’s a bargain, we are also giving away a pack of my very Favourite Toscana Papers FREE when you spend over £30.
Cor. I’ve just had a thought….
- Stamp Daisy Lino cut somewhere cool on the paper that looks like there is a little pond with reeds.
- Archival Black is best.
- Trim back, so the other half of the paper can be used for another project.
Edge with a Black Sharpie pen
- Use our glue runner to attach to a white cardblank that fits. I went with 7×7 inch.
- Stamp a sentiment into place, or use a sticker. This, believe it or not, is a stamp! I LOVE THESE LETTER PRESS STAMPS!!!! Look out for a rather super collection on the horizon…
And I still have the paper half with the pond or lake to play with! Cool.
Anyway, as I was saying, the pack of 10 papers is free if you spend over £30. And you don’t have to spend it in the sale only. You can spend it on anything you fancy this week.
As soon as the total exceeds £30, we will automatically add the pack of papers. And should you order more than once, well then I’m sure we will add another pack of papers! It’s not like you won’t use it !! Mind you, if we run out of these Toscana papers, then we may have to send you a different pack of favourites papers. I’m sure we’ve got plenty in the cupboard though!
Here’s to safe crafting and happy shopping!
Stay safe –
Love and hugs,
