Circus Dogs & More Moldy-Oldie Fun!

Howdy friends! I spend most of my free time over the last couple of days trying to get my studio under control. The summer is hectic, the kids are home, packages arrive, projects get done but not put away and there there was the rummage sale (ever notice how rummage sounds like rubbish?) where I picked up a garbage bag full of wool felt and various other craft supplies for $2…wow, that is a lot of piled up craft-crap to deal with! So then I sorted, and put away, came up with a great way to store my fabric (the felt is in a plastic tote and nice and flat…until I pull out a piece from the bottom and it is a mess again, clearly the felt situation needs more consideration but that is for another day!)

When I was cleaning and sorting I cam across another moldy-oldie tool I loved called the colorbox stylus with moldable tips. Wow, this is fun, you heat the tips with a light bulb, press it to a texture such as a stamp (I used the bubble background from Lost Coast Designs) or embossing folder and you have a cute shaped stamp. Don’t worry, you can also do this with cheap kids foam blocks from the dollar store! Why am I gabbing? Just watch the video! We will make this card from start to finish and drag out other oldies but goodies too!

Fun huh? I love the crepe paper and stenciling too, it is great when we can mix and match old with new and come up with a look that is all out own dontcha think?
