Time to burn your rubber stamps?

Not literally !! lol

I picked up this Walnut Hollow Creative Woodburner Pyrography tool at Michaels Stores with a coupon the other day on one of my bargain ventures..it’s just a cheapie one and comes with 4 tips.  I wasn’t sure if I would still enjoy it; or get to use it much, so didn’t want to spend too much… but it’s actually a nifty little tool. I haven’t done any pyrography since I was in my 20’s …. and it shows lol. But I think I’ll be having a play with this and all the wood blanks I seem to collect haha.

You don’t have to be a fab artist to enjoy pyrography there are a tonne of patterns available..and if you just want a quick way to get a design on your piece… grab your stamps and an ink pad.  Alternatively, use the method I showed in a previous post  to transfer the design using your printer and a laminating sheet.

I had a quick play and just used this W174 Patient Pup stamp I picked up on Christmas Clearance and a brown pad to stamp this lightly on the back of my desktop easel for a guide..gave it a quick wash of color with some markers when I was done.

another fun way to use all of those fab stamps in your collection… practise practise practise !

I would say this is the last craft haul for the year….

BUT.. Grandma just sent me a Joann Gift card lol.

I had a quick run through Michaels on Wednesday night and Hobby Lobby yesterday… I guess today it’s Joann day haha

anywho.. here’s a quick look at what I picked up, got some great deals.mini-spree

I finally got my 12×12 frame for my Brianna Blaster project…. I inked it up in black and brown last night  for an old distressed look using a Craftsmart Black Dye Ink pad and Ranger Tim Holtz Distress ink pads in Burlap and Walnut. Michaels don’t appear to be carrying  the larger ink pads anymore. Little man picked out a small wood frame for one of his projects.

I also picked up 4 packs of 6×6 canvas panels board for the lil guy to use with the Gelli Plate we just got.  In the Christmas  Sale  section we found a 3 pack of fondant rollers which will be fun to play with. they have 3 Christmas designs on them.

I grabbed a few reels of ribbon,  some Celebrate It Tempo sheer black…  and a skinny lace in green that I use for lacing up cards like this.




And then I also grabbed 3 sets of clear stamps.. all on clearance andstampendous_skaters 2 of  them have matching dies.  I have been wanting this Stampendous Poinsettia one and when I saw it down to less than $5..I had to grab it.  Then we grabbed this one for the little guy, it is another Stampendous  called Skaters also under $5





and lastly this little set by Inkadinkado Warm Wishes.

I also snatched up a couple of wood mounted stamps, the Patient Puppy was also on sale for under $5 and the fFern….I got 50% off with my coupon.



Of course I had to stock up on Recollections card too since it is on the buy 5 for $10 deal again.

And to make matters even better the young lady also  tacked on a 30% off everything code for me too.  So that little haul from Michaels cost me just $66 instead of over $130 at regular price.

Then we have  Hobby Lobby… I got the two oversized sentiment dies by Momenta Believe & Dream on clearance for $5.99 each and  hubby and I each grabbed a set of the Chameleon pens  with the 40 % off coupons.  SCORE !  I have now completed my Chameleon set…   minus the fabulous case..which I would have loved.

..   but such is life.  $74  haul for only $46 .. can't complain at that.
