I also bought another couple of Christmas stencils from Sweet Poppy in their sale, I was very taken with the bauble one, as I'd seen some Christmas Cards made using a rubber stamp in the same sort of lay out. I think these will look amazing done with the foil & laminator technique.
I'm actually starting to feel more like crafting, now that I seem to finally be getting beyond this blasted cold/cough/chest infection.
Mind you, maybe I'm making work for myself- they don't have to be heat embossed really.
A quick bit of back info on things mentioned in the past few weeks- first, the Groovi Grip. I've put this onto my rulers now, and also onto my Stix2 layering thingy. It works like a dream, the ruler stays put with just the slightest pressure from your fingers. I also discovered it's not actually sticky, it's a static cling. So once you smooth it down, it stays put, but if you want to take it off, there's no icky residue to get rid of.
Second, the Versafine Clair Fallen Leaves Brown. I emailed Tsukineko, and told them what I was seeing, and asked if I had a faulty pad.
