Daisy Delights

The Daisy Delights stamp set and punch were SO popular during the demonstrator pre-order (before the Annual Catalog went public) that it seemed to be on perpetual back-order.  That situation is finally straightened out, so I feel safe in sharing this card:

The Fine Tip Glue pen is more than adhesive – it gives a great shine – but do it when everything is finished and you can set your project aside to dry. It takes a long time, at least in Hawaii.

A Cozy Christmas (not a Maui Christmas)

We don’t have scenes like this on Maui at all, but it doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy them:

Maui Stamper Cozy Christmas Hearth and HomeAt convention, one of the presenters showed us how you could make little pin-point dots on a piece of card stock with our new Fine Tip Glue Pen and add Dazzling Diamonds (don’t tell) for this snowfall effect.

Maui Stamper Cozy Christmas Hearth and HomeI took it a step further and added snow on the roof, the trees, and the windowsill.

Maui Stamper Cozy Christmas Hearth and HomeI tried the same card again using Basic Black and some of our retired Silver Encore card stock, but I still felt that the sponging for the sky needed to be deep blue – this is Isand Indigo and Night Of Navy.

I’m ambivalent – do you have a preference?  One thing I’m sure of:  the Hearth and Home Window frame Thinlits are a big hit!

A calendar for September

I chose an old favorite for my September easel calendar.  I must not be the only one who likes it, because it’s still available in the 2015-2016 Annual Catalog:

Maui Stamper DIY Easel Calendar September 2015

  • Stamps:  Summer Silhouette
  • Color Palette:  So Saffron, Hello Honey, Early Espresso
  • Accessories:  Dazzling Diamonds

I’ve been a little wild and crazy with the Dazzling Diamonds lately, and I hope I don’t get too careless.  Mr. Maui Stamper is NOT a fan of glitter on the run.  If it is firmly attached to something – anything – he will tolerate it, but glitter in the air, on clothing, or (especially) on the furniture drives him crazy.

But look at those beautiful sparkly bits!  It absolutely had to be done.  Can I let you in on a little secret?  I just added those Dazzling Diamonds a few days ago with my new, about-to-be-released Fine Tip Glue Pen from the Holiday Catalog.  Tombo will always be The Wonder Adhesive in my book, but the Fine Tip Glue Pen is going to need some special recognition too.

Be sure to visit Cheryl and Crystal to see what they’ve created for this month – and stay tuned if you’d like a set of blank 2016 pages for your own creative calendar!
