Thanks so much Gayle. I always look forward to your comments on anything I make. Glad you like them all. The dies you like are by Penny Black and are called Ribbon Stackers. It is a set of 4 and I got them on sale when a physical store here was closing down. I like them too.
Good Morning Gayle, thanks so much for your sweet comment on my ornament. In answer to your question. I stamped some of the ornaments with Gina's Black Amalgam and some with Memento Tuxedo Black - either works - the stamp has to be inked really well. I didn't get a good impression on the first holly ornament I did and remarkably was able to line up perfectly for a second impression. I did not spray a fixative on the ornament. If I were making these on tiles to use as coasters they would have to be sprayed. As a side note, I had made some these years ago some with good stamping, more not so good. I bought some last year thinking they could be stamped in the MISTI, but found they're too thick.
Thanks Gayle - I'm happy to be home although I'm not yet settling into my craft room as much as I would like. Glad you like my cup. Love all your Halloween cards they are great. Got to make one for the little girl on my street and I still have Xmas cards to make although I did manage to get a good start on those prior to my trip.
The nail polish marbling I did one afternoon, gave me a few different pieces to play with, although I found it quite difficult to get anything to stick on top and had to really work to get the water background piece to stay put. As well I found that some of the polish flakes off if touched or flexed in anyway so I had to be careful of that too. Still I like how it turned out particularly as the only part of the card that I planned was the mermaid and the water piece. It always amazes me how the creative process works at times.
Hi Gayle, I really appreciate your lovely comments on my recent cards. I haven't had time to make many cards lately, but I'm having a ball with Tropical Tidings - you'll love it - and now the Autumn Wreath Builder. Hope you're not having any flooding where you are.
