Back to the stamp room

I was back in my stamp room today...still organizing and purging. It amazes me after 4 years dedicated to stamping how much stuff a person can acquire. But I know I don't need to explain that to you because you're probably in my boat too!

Today's card was created around some BEAUTIFUL patterned paper I acquired through dumpster diving *lol* (did I say that out loud?). At the end of CHA some of the worn or torn paper is discarded...I couldn't resist giving this patterned paper from Deja Views (Little Yellow Bicycle) a loving home despite the wear and tear and tape...take a peek...(this was one of my FAVs for patterned paper at CHA)


Stamp Set(s):
-Bunny by Inkadinkado
-A treat for you by A*Muse

-Brillance Graphite Black

-White Prismatic by Prism Paper
-Little Yellow Bicycle by Deja Views

-Pop Dots
-Ciao Markers by Copic
-Nestabilities by Spellbinders

Now onto some CHA projects...

Q (refer to Monday's post)
Ali-where are the chipboard letters from (what brand, site,etc) in the first photo? Looks like there are two sizes, I'm interested in either, but the teal ones especially.

That pic was taken at the Basic Grey booth. Although I can't be 100% sure, I would assume the letters are from the new chipboard monograms through Basic Grey. They have quite a few to choose from.

Q (refer to Monday's post)
Could you give me some details on how the clock versions were made please. It was great to have my first comment answered. I know your time is precious and I appreciate all you share.

Both of these clocks were clocks you would pick up at your local department stores like Walmart, Target etc. They just applied patterned paper to the clock most likely with modge podge or a form of adhesive that would work with the given surface after which they applied embellishments over top. I know there are clock kits you can buy (the hands and motor) and then you could also purchase a surface like a plate and drill a hole through it and adhere paper to it. You could even buy a big piece of chipboard, paint it and then apply patterned paper too. There are many different possibilities. I hope that answers your questions.

Have a terrific day.

I think you hit pay dirt with that dumpster dive! It's gorgeous paper!

Alli, I was wondering if you like your light kit? I am thinking about ordering it. Would you say it was worth it for you? Are all your new posts using the light kit?
