Hey Guys! I've got another fun Craft Monkey Destash Bash project for you from Stacey who blogs over at Our Daily Walk! Are you ready for this amazingness!
Hi! I'm Stacey from Our Daily Walk and I'm so excited to be posting on Craft Monkey today! When I saw Heidi was asking if anyone wanted some free craft supplies I had to think about it for awhile.....Just kidding! I was so excited and said I'd love to be apart of the Craft Monkey DeStash Bash! I'm so glad I did, because I've been having a great time with the things she sent.
I know other bloggers have already explained the DeStash Bash, but just incase you weren't paying attention, Heidi wanted to simplify and get rid of some of her craft supplies, so instead of just taking them to Goodwill, she asked her followers on Facebook if anyone wanted them! (It pays to follow your favorite blogs on Facebook!) There was only one stipulation...Make something with the supplies you receive and do a little guest post!
Here's what I received...
Stamps and stamp supplies!
I was so excited. One of my New Year's Resolutions this year was to send birthday cards to every single person in my family. Yes, every.single.person. Which obviously also includes the hubb's family, too. We're talking grandparents, parents, siblings, brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, and on and on.
That's a lot of cards!
When I got these I honestly thought Heidi had read my mind and knew of my card dilemma! Instead of having to buy tons of cards for my family, I could just make super cute ones myself!
Here's a few I've made so far...
I have never played with stamps more than just the regular stamp it in the colored ink and you're done. With the VersaMark and the Pearl Ex pigment powder, you can stamp it and pick the color you want! It leaves the prettiest shine and is so subtle and pretty. The silver ink was also so beautiful on the cards. I love playing with it, and so did my girls!
I have two girls, ages 2 and 3, and they absolutely love doing crafts. And with Mother's Day coming up, I thought I'd let them make some cards for their Grandma! My oldest daughter was so excited and had so much fun, she hasn't let go of her card since. But, my youngest daughter let me take a picture of her creation!
Yes, it's wrinkled, but I think her Grandma will love it anyway!
Thanks Heidi for all the fun new toys!! I think we will be entertained with all of this for a long, long time! You can check out my blog, Our Daily Walk , to see more of my family's fun adventures together!
See You Soon,
Thanks Stacey! I'm glad your daughter was able to get in on the crafting fun too! Thanks so much for playing along and sharing your card making skills with us!
