Information about the Delicata ink from Stampin' Up!

If you like the Delicata ink that we have been using for several months, and haven't ordered it yet, now is the time (before it is GONE! The Celestial Copper is GONE!).  You can find the product information on page 16 in the Holiday Catty.  I really like it because it provides a beautiful gold color without embossing.  Let me know if you have any questions.  Susan Elise

Oval Brush & Masks

Delicata Ink Mask and Oval BrushMarti also reminded me that I hadn't let you know about a new brush that makes 'sponging' color onto cardstock very easy.  Traditionally I would use SPONGE DAUBERS (#133733, page 181 in the annual catalog) to add ink over a mask like the one above but I found a new brush being used on a video and decided to try it.  It is a BEAUTIQUE Oval Brush and I ordered it on Amazon also.  It is a make-up brush and comes in a variety of sizes.  I don't know who 'discovered' that it is a great art tool but it makes 'sponging' easy and quick.  I was using the  BASIC PATTERN DECORATIVE MASKS on page 35 in the Holiday Catalog and DELICATA METALLIC INK (page 16, Holiday Catalog) to add a design to the tops of my coffins.  This soft oval brush is just right for the job!  Try it!

Art Glitter

Marti reminded me yesterday that I hadn't added 'art glitter' to my blog posts.  Sorry about that.  In our October Team (Southern Stars) meeting Sarah Williams mentioned a new glue in response to my expressing problems when I was creating my coffins for Halloween.  I was using Tear and Tape and it was taking a long time to make each of the coffins.  Too long.  Sarah (who always has great recommendations) said that she has been using the 'art glitter' designer adhesive ~ it dries clear and sticks quickly and securely.  I ordered mine from Amazon so, of course, it arrived quickly and I started using it immediately to finish my coffins.  I have been using it since so I wanted to recommend it to you.  You can also find it at along with the largest line of glitter you ever saw ~ about 1,000 different colors!!!

Yesterday was fun!

I thought I would share some pictures from the UNIQUE BOUTIQUE, yesterday ~ supporting LEE'S FRIENDS.  There were about thirty vendors there ~ from Avon to Tupperware ~ and all of us in between.  It was a very FULL house!  I brought my cute little paper pumpkins, treat boxes, fabulous cards and LOTS of information about STAMPIN' UP!  Of course my table looked a little Halloweeny so I wore a cute little hat that I found at the Leigh Memorial Hospital Gift Shop earlier in the week.
