Craftroom Purge--Stamps and Dies for Sale!

Sunday, January 29, 2017

Back in November I started a craftroom purge by putting most of my Flourishes stamps up for sale, and I said I would have dies listed in a few days. Well, sometimes life just doesn't want to cooperate with my plans, as I promptly ended up in the ER--more than once! But, now, with a diagnosis in hand, and treatment started, hopefully, I won't need any more ER visits for awhile. So, I'm giving this another go!

I have Pinterest boards set up for the items I have for sale. If you see something you want, just email me at inkup.blog at gmail.com with a list (first-come, first-served), and your zip code, and I'll get back to you with your cost, including shipping. I will be taking payments on PayPal.

Most of the items I am selling are gently used and are not in their original packaging. (The majority of my stamps and thin metal dies are stored in DVD sleeves similar to the method Jennifer McGuire uses, and that is probably how they will arrive to you.) Some stamps are stained, but that does not affect how they stamp. All sales are final.

I will be adding more stamps to the Pinterest boards as I can, so if you don't see something you want right now, keep checking for new items.

New Baby

Sunday, November 20, 2016

No, no, no! I don't have a new baby! But, I do have a new baby card.
Pardon the poor picture quality. I took this with my iPad and no flash. In real life the colors are more pure than in this pic.

The color on the pic of the inside is closer to the real thing.

This card will accompany the car seat quilt I posted earlier. My daughter embroidered a quilt label for the quilt. We even digitized the carriage ourselves! It turned out so cute:
Finally, I realized a few days ago that I hadn't posted pics of the quilts my daughter and I finished. 

My daughter's first quilt!

My first completed quilt

 I love having a "surprise" color on the quilt back.


Thanks for stopping by, and have a Happy Thanksgiving!

I just love the Crazy Dogs & Cats stamps and dies!

Car Seat Quilt and Upcoming Craftroom Purge and Sale

Sunday, October 30, 2016

After a year of almost non-existent cardmaking, I've decided it's time to clean out the old craftroom. Very soon, I will be posting links to lists of gently used papercrafting supplies that I am selling. There will be a little bit of everything, including Spellbinders dies and Flourishes stamp sets, all at very good prices! Keep watching for my next post!

In the meantime...

Just popping in to say hi and show you my latest creation. (Sorry about the photo quality. It's been so long since I posted anything, I've gotten rusty on my photo editing program.) This is a small quilt made for covering a baby in a car seat. I got the free pattern here
I used a 5" charm pack from Missouri Star Quilt Co. called Giraffe Crossing 2, and the teal dotted border fabric is from the same line. I'm starting to think that I can't craft without Tim Holtz in my project somewhere. The brown vintage-y fabric is Tim Holtz Eclectic Elements Ledger fabric. The yellow backing and binding is a super-soft poly fabric called Minky. It feels amazing, but this is probably the first and last time I'll use it. It is really hard to sew on my little machine, and my shoulders paid a big price.

Here's a look at the entire front of the quilt. I did a self-binding with the Minky. You can see the ties about a third of the way down, on the sides.


I was a little worried about doing any free-motion quilting on this because of how stretchy Minky is, so I mainly stuck to using my walking foot and stitching in the ditch, but I did do some swirls in the outer border, and it turned out very nice. 


I hope you have a fun and safe Halloween if you are out and about tomorrow night. For the holiday, here's a recipe for homemade candy corn that is delicious. My daughter made the pumpkin face from leftover candy, so you aren't limited to just making corn shapes. It's not the easiest recipe to make, but it tastes much better than the candy corn from the store. 

Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Haunting!
