Hi, I'm Buffy, and I'm a Stampin' Up!(r) hoarder. It's a sad – but true – fact that I buy these lovely, lovely products, then hoard them, because I don't want to use them up. (Like I can't buy more, right???) Anyway – I bought the Very Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware a couple years ago, and decided I'd better start using it more. Actually, I have been using it, but there's a lot of stuff in that little box. (Trust me; I knocked it on the floor by accident and had to pick up all those tiny little pieces – and the not so tiny pieces. There's a lot in there.)
For the third May project, I chose a little magnet made from the Hodgepodge Hardware. Check it out –
I used my sadly neglected Craft and Rubber scissors to cut the bottom tab off. Poor scissors. They don't get used much since I don't need to trim stamps now that ours are die-cut. But they're great for cutting hardware pieces. Safety note: Be sure to wear protective eyewear when cutting any kind of metal!
This project is so cute – but very simple. I inked the "All a Flutter" butterfly with markers, then coated it with VersaMark and embossed with two coats of Glassy Glaze. Add a punched piece of card stock or designer paper, a little ribbon or cord and that's it. I meant to add a little glitter in the last coat of Glassy Glaze but forgot.
Here's the complete list of supplies.
Stamp: All a Flutter
Ink: VersaMark; Stampin' Write Markers – Rich Razzleberry, Dusty Durango, Certainly Celery
Paper: Whisper White card stock, Razzleberry Lemonade DSP
Accessories: Very Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware, gold cord, mini glue dots, Glassy Glaze enamel, heat tool, modern label punch, craft & rubber scissors, magnet
Off to a workshop! Have a wonderful holiday. Don't forget to check in on Tuesday for the "last chance" lists. I may have to post it a little late; I have an out of town meeting on Tuesday morning (bad planning!), but I'll try to either stay up till 2 a.m. or get up a little earlier to post the lists.
Speaking of last chance lists., please remember that all retiring accessories are "while supplies last," so if there's something you really, really want on that list, you should order early to avoid disappointment. Retiring stamp sets, however, will be available through June 30. You can order 24/7 on my web site – and take a peek at the Clearance Rack while you're there. Lots of items have been ordered, and most are 60% off the catalog price!
