Well, we’re getting a major ice storm in Indianapolis. It started earlier than predicted, and it’s going strong. We’re planning on hunkering down and staying in. Those of you who must go out, please be safe. It’s bad and worsening. There are already power outages and traffic accidents.
Onto a lighter topic… recently, I bought my first set of stamps from Skipping Stones Design. I’ve been trying to buy less stamps because I have SO many that I do not use (Some that have never seen ink which is wrong on many levels). When I saw this set, I had to get it though (for a variety of reasons)
I mean really, how cute is this set of stamps??? I got it in the mail and was wanting to ink it up and found that Skipping Stones Design has a sketch challenge. How perfect to inaugurate the stamps with a challenge?
Here was the sketch:
And here is what I did with the sketch:
I have a very sweet friend whose birthday is coming up, and this card is for her. I think she’ll really like it (she’s a fellow card maker and appreciates getting the custom made cards). You cannot tell in the photo (and I tried to catch in some other shots but didn’t do too well), but I put Stampin’ Up Crystal effects on the purse to give it a patent leather look to it. In real life, it’s a nice effect.
Question for you all… Stampin’ Up’s Crystal Effects really gets gummed up despite my best efforts to prevent it from occurring. For those of you who use the other brand, Glossy Accents, I think? Does it also get all gooped up?
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great week. For those of you in Snowmageddon or Icemagedden, be safe out there.
Hugs and blessings.
