Tuesday's Tips - Pink Erasers???

 How can a pink eraser help you with your stamping? 

If you rub a pink eraser over your stamps it helps to condition them and allows the ink to grab onto the stamps better.  Wow! 

Who knew this was just what I needed to condition my stamps.  Have fun stamping and Happy Crafting!


Let the Good Times Roll Overview

So sorry for the delayed post today, had doctors stuff to do.  All is well.  Let's take a look at the new bundle Let the Good Times Roll.  This set is located on page 7 of the new Occasions Catalog 2018 located on the right hand side of my website.  It comes with 14 photopolymer stamps including little roller coaster cars and presents to put in the seats of the roller coasters, sooooo cute!  The stamps set is $16.00 alone (145687) and the dies, which have 11 dies included, (145650) are $32.00 alone.  When you bundle this set and purchase both dies and stamps you save 10% and the set is $43.00 (145959).

I love the fact that this set creates a 3d roller coaster track.  My husband loves it when I make 3d cards and this is one I will have to purchase just because of him.  But can you imagine the surprise and awe that this card will bring to someone's face!  

The stamps include 3 sentiments that are "Hope your birthday is a thrill to remember" (my personal favorite) and "Let the good times roll" and "today is your day".  All great sentiments that can be used with other stamp sets to make them more versatile.  You know I'm all about the versatility!  Let's get more bang for our buck.

Overall I love the 3d part of this set but I'm still racking my brain to see what else I can use this set for, I thought about carnival themed invitations, carnival boxes there's more much more.  

When you get this set for yourself please message me a let me know what you come up with, I would love to see your ideas!

Happy Crafting!
