A dreary, dreary March day around here yesterday led me to my local Archiver's for a little pick-me-up. Here's a few of the things that came home with me:
Love this cheerful paper from October Afternoon! Just the thing to get my mind off the gloomy weather and onto spring!
I've been able to resist the last few offerings of paper from Graphic 45, but their new line, "Olde Curiosity Shoppe, was irresistible.
This paper from Simple Stories called Documented will go fast.
Two new stamps sets, the one above is a Tim Holtz set which was from Archivers. The one below is something I ordered on-line, but which I know will get a lot of use.
Love these mini alphabet playing cards from Tim Holtz, too!
Saving the best of my purchases for last -- Tim Holtz' new Distress Markers. Along with the detailer water pen. I already played around with these a bit and I'll just say that I absolutely adore them! Been having fun playing with different colors on stamps -- wow, it's been a long time since I felt like doing that. They are very easy to blend with the watercolor pen and there's a great variety of looks I think one can achieve with these. Nice spring colors, too!
Jacqueline has been showing off some wine labels here son gave her (we should all have sons who bring home stampable ephemera:) She was nice enough to send me some and so I played around with the wine label and my new Distress Markers to create the card below.
Finally, the spring edition of Take Ten arrived recently with a card I had created as a designer for Artistic Outpost using one of their stamps from Huck Finn set.
