Tip/Technique Hop - Skipping Stones Designs

Hello everyone,

I'm here to share a tip with you on how I store my stamp sets when they first arrive in my craft room. I like to leave out my new goodies so that I can look at them and play and use them in different ways.  Then, when I'm all done I put them into their storage pockets.  So what I do to be able to get into them easily, I cut off the tops to the cellophane packaging.  That way I can take them out without having to undo the bottom and tare it apart.  

Now on with my card.

Gold is the in right now and I am tickled with that.

I used the the feather from the Victorian Summer set and the sentiment is from the Dandelion Dreams stamp set, which is one of my favourites.  I used gold pigment ink to stamp the feather and a chocolate die ink for the sentiment.  Then I finished off the card with some chocolate and gold sequins.

Be sure to show the rest of the Team some blog.  There are lots of tips and techniques to share with you.  Also stop buy the shop there are lots of great stamps!  You have until Oct 14th at 5pm EST. 

Coralynn - you are here!

  7. Such a beautiful card Coralynn and a great tip!

  8. I was just thinking a couple days ago that there must be an easier way to get the stamp sets in and out of their packages without messing with that adhesive flap that is forever sticking to the wrong thing. Thank you for "permission" to cut the package open!!! :) lol....
