But that means it's Wednesday, and time for Whats On Your Workdesk Wednesday, hosted by our lovely Julia over at The Stamping Ground.
On my desk right now is the pile of Hot Foil projects I was talking about trying last week. There are two posts below this about them, both are very picture heavy, which is why I split it in two. If you want to check them out, you might want to come back when you have some spare time😀😀But it works extremely well, and what's more, you can do it with an ordinary iron as well.
The small metal stencils are for the next round of experiments- I want to see if it works with normal press down foil,like the Stix2 ones above, and also if the process will work with Dreamweaver pastes, and then stamping with a glue pad. That's something that's never worked very well, so I'm going to see if heat makes it work better. It would also mean I could foil stamped images. So we'll see.
We paid a visit to Amelias Crafts on Friday, and these were the things that I put in my basket. I liked the Woodware Wreath stamp, that's going to make some nice simple C Cards, and that Embossing Folder has lovely wavy lines on.
However, this picture is what Beloved Hubby added to the basket.
A Sweet Poppy Dragonfly stencil, and a whole pile of stamps. Those feather stamps are HUGE! To give you an idea, that pack is A4 sized.
This pic is an idea I picked up from Diana Taylor at Velvet Moth Studios blog. She was storing spare die cuts in trading card/ currency pouches in an A4 binder, which I thought was a great idea, so I've just done the same with all my spare ones.
