Here's my order from Hero Arts. So much goodness in this, and I've already started making stuff.
Half of these die sets go with stamps I already own, including Color Layering Octopus and Happy As A. The alphabet is very small and inexpensive so I thought it perfect for experimenting with an alpha set to see if I would use a larger set. I've been limited to a few heart punches and wanted that basic shape in the infinity dies to see how I will use them. If they work out okay for me, I'll definitely get some more of the infinity dies. Those are potentially very useful.
The color layering branches set (with dies) is just so pretty, and I love, love, love the tiny birds in it. The birthday balloon animal set fills a need for some more birthday sets. (I make so many for Karen's Card Shop.) And finally, the flower set seemed funky and fun, but after playing with it a bit, I'm struggling. Oh, well. I'll figure something out.
Handmade Watercolor Paper
Jennifer McGuire sang its praises, and I bit.
So many stampers make these look great. Why not?
For years, I hardly ever used purple. Lately, it's been more appealing to me, so another shade in my ink collection will get used. For the record, I still loathe fairy vomit (also known as Orchid Opulence).
What have you bought lately that you're lovin'?
