WOYWW83 and a new year



This is what my desk looked like when I finished the card in yesterday's blog post.

In view top left is a blank blue card that I made using my sketch flavor of the month (noticeable in many of my recent card posts)...the snowglobe stamp I used for my holiday cards is still loitering (he really should move on)...just below it is a humongous glue pen that I recently found in my stash that worked great for covering the large space I glittered in yesterday's card...my magnifiers with a yummy bling chain that I picked up a few months ago (so nice to always know where the glasses are, especially with my cluttered desk)...a couple of Suzi Blu Unity girls (love 'em)...and a whole mess of Lawn Fawn stamps.

I've become fond of Lawn Fawn. I've always been skeptical of clear stamps. Thought they weren't weighty enough for a good impression. But I guess I was wrong or they've been improved upon. Lawn Fawn stamps are crisp and clear and what I love, love, love about this type of stamp is that I can see exactly where my image is going. I just don't have that kind of confidence with the unmounted rubber stamps. My sentiments are always a little crooked. I'm resigning myself to the fact that if that bothers me enough I'm going to have to use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to line it up and that's just another step....

Anyway, yesterday I gave a link to Lawn Fawn if you're curious. Really adorable stamps.

Cindy I love your sketch flavour of the month, I looked back at the earlier cards and it's a great LO. Don't think I've ever seen a glue stick quite that large before! The clear stamps do vary, Penny Black and Hero Arts are excellent as are the clear Tim Holtz stamps you can get in Michaels, but some of the others leave a lot to be desired!

Yep, that snow globe has got to go. Christmas is over (grin). I am not a fan of clear stamps because I can't get them to stick to my clear blocks. I get them inked up, turn them over to stamp, and while the block is still in my hand, the clear stamp falls off onto the piece I want to stamp. VERY frustrating. Gotta admit Anna Griffin ones are the worst. Hope you have better luck with yours. Now, TAG, You ARE IT from a very late 16.
