Blog Candy

Today, I’ve been really, REALLY messy, to make up for the clean cards I made in the last couple of days, lol. I’ve been making Marvy Metallic Backgrounds and Twinkler backgrounds – this one was my very own idea, too – not one I found elsewhere, so I’m quite proud of it.

One of the advantages of having had a stamping business was that I had to have a supply of most things I sold, so that I could demo them and also so that the people attending workshops and Stamp Club could use them. I know it sounds daft but it was sometimes a disadvantage because there was just too much to choose from and Twinklers were no exception, although I rarely use them now, which is a shame. They’re so glitzy and the colours are so beautiful. My set is the larger sized jars and in amidst all those pretty jewel like colours, I found some of the smaller Twinklers – 13 in fact – which we must have used before the larger sized jars arrived! So if anyone would like them, just leave a comment here and I’ll put your name in a hat. If they’ve been used at all, they’ve been VERY lightly used, but some of them have no lids – I don’t use lids because they jam if you put them on when the paint is still wet…


The colours are:- Fuzzy Peach, Stargazer, Coral Berry, Wisteria, Evening Primrose, Razzle Berry, Nutmeg, Black Orchid, Bolivian Blue, Oregano, Caribbean Mist, Jasper Red – I think!!

While I remember, I also have a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder that I managed to double up on – don’t know how, but it was probably while doing classes or something… again, very lightly used, although I can’t tell the one I’ve used more from the other now. If you’re interested in that, please leave a comment. It’s the Birds and Swirls design.

birds and swirls

I’d VERY MUCH appreciate it if you’d stipulate which one you’re interested in – Twinklers or Embossing Folder – or I won’t be able to enter you for the draw. I’ll draw a name over the weekend.
