I'd like to think I do - especially being a flipping Pixie!
I've seen the UIU (Use It Up) resolutions that so many crafters seem to be trying to follow for the whole of 2012. Eeek, no way can I do that - I'll give up chocolate (fairly easily in fact), new shoes, wild parties (ha, never get invited and wouldn't have the stamina anyhow) and even, at a push, ironing :)) But, I can see the reasoning behind the resolution so this is my take on it - I hereby pledge to go right through my basket of unused stamps and other goodies and make sure I do at least give them a whirl before putting them into their rightful homes. Sorry, I just know I can't do better than that so am not even going to try kidding myself:(
As a start on the 'unused stash' basket I made this card using some Lavinia stamps I bought at Ally Pally last September plus an unused LOTV sentiment as well as a Lyndsay Mason stamp - all for the first time:
- 5" x 7" cream card stock
- TH Distress ink pads in Faded Jeans and Peeled Paint applied with duster brushes (with a die cut circle to mask off the moon area)
- Lavinia 'Moon Fairy' stamp, with toadstools using stamps by both Lavinia and Lyndsay Mason
- LOTV 'Believe in Fairies' sentiment from the 'Dreamy Days' set
- Josy Rose baby blue star shaped nail heads
I still struggle leaving empty spaces which is why I added the stars - one day I'll crack it perhaps!
Oh boy, talk about Friday 13th here - I wrote up most of the snippets posting yesterday, all ready for tomorrow (and believe me, it ain't a quick thing to do) and then Mr Blogger kicked me out and I lost the lot!! Am now using Gedit in Ubuntu to compose at least the text part of postings - trust me, there was a bit of 'banging head on desk' here yesterday. Err, amend that to a LOT of head banging on desk!!!
