Other then watching the awards our weekend was pretty basic, my accomplishment of note being that I managed to get all the laundry done and also finished a card (yes, only one). Weekends seem to go by so fast, and lately during the week I haven't had time to sit down and stamp as much as I like. Hopefully this week I can find some stamping time, especially as I get pretty grumpy when I can't find the time to stamp.
Here is the card I made yesterday, a plain card, but it was fun to color with copics:
Isn't that the cutest boy stamp? The stamp came from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design, I absolutely love her shop! And if I get some time I will make some more cards this week with the other stamps I have from her shop.
It takes me forever to figure out what I want to do with a card, but eventually it comes together : ) Anyhow, how about some stamping stuff?
The Pearl Pens I ordered from Susana arrived early last week, and let me tell you they are everything you have ever dreamed of in a dimensional pen. I have only had time to sample the product, but I can't wait to use them on a card! And Susana now has the white pen in stock! Not only are the pens great, but Susana has the absolutely BEST service, I placed my order and three days later I had the pens in my hot little hands!
Color Wheel: This is a great reference to help you pick out colors for your projects. Lots of information on color, all of which is easy to understand and follow.
Iridescent card stock: I have read that this card stock is great for card making, haven't tried it yet, however it is on my list of things to order and try.
GREAT flower tutorial: Wow! This tutorial is wonderful, it shows you how to make Anemones, and let me tell you they look amazing!
The "Cinch" by Memory Keepers: This looks like a great tool for those who make books and albums. I especially liked how it seems to be very easy to use (ease of use is something I look for in tools).
And here is a Mica Gloss video. I bought a few colors of the Mica Gloss last year and have been looking for a video ever since. If you haven't tried these yet I can tell you they are GREAT! Amazing ability to blend, and the colors are wonderful. I especially like the shimmer these inks give your project:
Ok, that is it for today, I have to get ready for work and out the door in 15 minutes (luckily the laundry is done so I might be able to find something to wear).
Have a GREAT day everyone, see you next Monday.
