This is a hugely exciting post (Not!) about my clear stamp storage solution.
I can also keep any special instructions in the back or...
...Post-It masks that I've cut out.
So there you have it...my incredibly interesting (yawn) clear stamp storage solution.
It's gotta be up there with the invention of the internet or landing on the moon on the scale of 'interestingness' & 'enlighteningnessnessness'
I'm off to get a life... see yer x

The countdown to our Sof' leaving home for uni' is now into the final week... Sniff! Today has been a day of packing and checking that we can actually get everything she needs to take into the car. As a shoe & clothes-a-holic it's been quite a traumatic experience for her having to narrow down what to take and what to leave behind.
Can you imagine what it would feel like having to make the same decisions with our crafty stash...what to take, what to leave behind....Shudder!
Anyway, enough rambling. I've used MFT's Blissful Blooms stamp set today. I made a circle stencil using a plastic divider (scroll down to penguin post for details) and loosely taped it down with Post-It tape.
I stamped around the stencil, masking the images and moving the tape as I went along.
I love the vibrancy of Zig Clean Color markers, so forgive me (again) for using them.
This time I remembered to photograph as I went along so you can see the colours I used.
If you're still wondering whether or not to give the Zigs a try then I really can't encourage you enough...I have no regrets except I wish I'd found them sooner.
Finally I used a brilliant die, again from MFT, called Pop-Up Birthday that leaves the bottom of each letter in tact so that the letters pop forward...Genius!
Behind the letters I stuck a small strip of card that I'd coloured with patches of colour so that they would show behind the popped-out letters.
A few clear gems, sequins and a swoosh with a Wink of Stella et voila!

I don't have a black so used the Light & Peacock blues to colour those cute little penguins.
3 shades of pink for the rubber-ring and drink, but trust me you don't need 3 pinks. You can get sooooooo many shades with just 2 pens.
Greens, oranges & yellows for the little fellas trunks and beach towel.

I could have sworn but I won’t, wot wiv being a lady n’ all that, that I’d posted this card before but it appears not. Found all these photos on yee olde laptop.
Twas made back in March with a floral stamp set from Mama Elephant called ‘Freestyle Florals’. I stamped lots of the images & embossed with silver pearl Wow embossing powder.
I painted them with Windsor & Newton watercolours & then fussy cut them…
…before adding them to my card and stamping a sentiment from Winnie & Walter.
I’m sure I’m losing the plot, off to quadruple check my blog again…if you’ve seen this card before just smile & wave.
