Going to the Works in Progress Bin

Going to the Works in Progress Bin

Yes, I do have a works in progress bin, for stamped images that need a home on a card or page. I frequently forget that it’s even around. But, while poking around, looking for ideas for this month’s card party, I pawed through my works in progress bin and decided I really should use up these:

These are transparencies, that have been stamped with staz-on ink. On the reverse side, a mixture of dimensional glue and dye re-inker was rubbed on the transparency, and then a crumpled piece of white tissue paper was tapped lightly onto the glue mixture.

It really is that simple.

These pieces have been sitting in my works in progress drawer for over a decade. Really. It’s time to use them up or toss them, don’t you think?

The bee one seemed to be the simplest one for me to use to start out with, especially since I had a new stamp set from Stampin’ Up that I’ve been saving up to use for this month’s cards.

A few pieces of scrap paper from my scrap bin punched with a fiskars punch, a few stamps in a coordinating hero arts shadow ink — or maybe it was a Tim Holtz distress ink! I can’t remember. I’ll link them both up, either would work.

At any rate, a fairly simple card, if you’ve already got your focal piece collecting dust somewhere.

That’s what you should do! If you’ve got any unused stamped pieces languishing away, put them on a card today!

Don’t forget, if you’d like to get a card from me, make sure you’re on my email list– the sign up box is at the top of the page.
