FOR SALE – Stamps & Dies For Sale

Hello, Crafters.

I know it has been a very long time since you’ve seen a post here from me.  Life over the past two years has been a tough learning experience, but I am finally beginning to emerge from the chaos.

I have started the year with a few “goals” that I would like to achieve.  I don’t usually make goals, since I really believe in just authentically being who you are all along the way, not just at the beginning of each year.  But I did write a few things down that I really want to accomplish this year.

One thing that happened last year is that our daughters moved to new bedrooms in our basement, which required me to move my crazy stash of craft supplies upstairs to their old bedroom – my new craft room.

craft-room-01.jpg

It was such a herculean task!  The pic above only shows one wall of the room, but the wall opposite of this and the closet are both full of things, as well.  The entire time – every time I carried yet another ridiculous box of supplies up those 14 stairs and down the hallway – I promised myself that I would go through it all and de-stash as soon as I possibly could.  DOWNSIZING and SIMPLIFYING are my ambitions for 2018.  And I am happy to say that I actually started doing that before the end of the first month of the year!

So, I am starting with some of my little- or never-used stamps and dies and embossing folders.  Before I get to the list, I would like to state a few process/housekeeping notes:

  1. I am only shipping within the United States.  I apologize to my international friends, but I am not able to do the extra work of dealing with international sales and shipping.  I will ship USPS First Class, calculated as per how many items you are purchasing.  Most of the items listed here are flat stamps or die sets, which are no more than 1 or 2 ounces each, sometimes 3 ounces when a coordinating die is included.  So I am estimating that shipping will probably begin around $2.66-$3.00 and increase from there according to how many items are purchased.  I will add on about $.30 for each additional item purchased, until the price reaches $7.50, at which point I will send it by Flat Rate Priority Mail.  Please remember that these are my “guess-timates” and that actual USPS rates may be different
  2. Please email me if you want to purchase something.  I will not reply to comments on this post, so you will need to email me at:  laughadaisy (at) hotmail (dot) com.
  3. Sales are first come first served.  If I have more than one response for any items, I will simply take the first person who emails me.  Please list the specific name and/or item description from below each picture, and be sure to include your PayPal email address for the invoice and also your zip code so that I can obtain a shipping estimate for you.
  4. Payment is PayPal only, even if you are local.  Please wait for me to send you an invoice.  Payment must be made within 24 hours of receiving the invoice.  If the invoice has not been paid within 24 hours, I will cancel the sale and list the item(s) as still for sale.
  5. I will not pay for a refund unless you choose to purchase insurance for the package in advance.  Please let me know and I will add insurance cost to the invoice before you pay.
  6. Please ask in advance if you have questions about the size of any item.  I will try to list the general measurements of each stamp set TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE.  But if you are confused or wondering about an item’s size, please ask me before you claim it.
  7. Stamps will be shipped with the original clear backing sheet whenever possible.  Otherwise they will be on a blank clear backing sheet.  Most of these sets have never been used and are still in mint shape, although you can see from the pictures where there is very minor staining or discoloring of the stamps.  I will specify in the description if any stamps are missing from a set.  And although Papertrey Ink stamps are pictured here in CD cases with label pictures, the stamps will be shipped on clear acetate sheets without labels.  The pictures are merely to clearly show what is included in the stamp sets.
  8. Dies will be shipped adhered with tape onto a piece of lightweight cardboard with magnet sheeting attached to it.

The Sending Hugs Collection

I HAVE A FEW CRAFT SUPPLIES LISTED FOR SALE.
PLEASE STOP BY MY SALE POST HERE
TO SEE IF THERE IS
ANYTHING YOU WOULD LIKE!

 

I am here today with a few cards to share, a group that I am calling the “Sending Hugs Collection.”

About a month ago, I created this card with an embossed sentiment on a little block of black cardstock.  At that time, for some reason, I cut a bunch of extra pieces and embossed the same sentiment onto all of them, after which they sat around doing nothing for a month.

I haven’t been feeling particularly creative since then.  The circumstances of my life as it is right now include random bursts of “crazy” which come out of nowhere to ruffle feathers and leave a mess behind.  Then I clean up the mess as best is possible, and life moves on again.  That is how the last few years have been for me – Not much normal with lots of random bursts of crazy.  I am getting better at managing the bursts, so that they don’t feel quite so threatening and deconstructing to me.  But they are still there, and I never know when a burst will happen.  Sometimes it takes a week or two, or more, to weather the storm, clean up the mess, and get back on my feet.  Often during those times, the things I love to do don’t easily fit into my schedule or into my psychological ability to switch gears.  So, my process of blogging will just have to include the fact that there will be periods of silence when the disorientation hits and until it passes.

At any rate, after belatedly seeing the most recent Color Throwdown challenge, I was able to muster a little bit of creative thought over the weekend, which included dazed moments of just sitting at my craft desk staring at those little black blocks of cardstock with the embossed “sending hugs” sentiment.  Other embellishments/elements/images that were sitting around on the desk were eventually pulled into my efforts, and the following collection ensued.

Here is the particular card that was inspired by the Color Throwdown challenge:

ENCG-009-01

I know these colors aren’t quite the actual match for the color combo, but I wanted to color the flowers in different colors, and my eyes saw the peachy color of the strawberry lemonade in the glasses and pitcher, so I added a touch of that to my bouquet.

489

 

And here are the rest of the cards that followed:

ENCG-008-01ENCG-007-01ENCG-006-01ENCG-011-01ENCG-010-01

After using 4 of the black sentiment blocks, I realized that I had a freebie stamp sitting there on the desk looking up at me longingly, so I used it for the last two cards instead.

 

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

This card is my first entry into an Altenew inspiration challenge.  I’m not sure I came very close on the actual photo colors, but I had a good time creating this card!

The camellia image is one that I stamped months and months ago but am just now using on a card.  Those layered Altenew flower sets are fun to work with, I tell you WHAT!!  I am much better at layering stamps now that I have a MISTI positioner, so I have much more fun with these types of sets as a result.  (I have a stack of these flowers in a rainbow of colors just waiting patiently to be used someday!)

Also, another word die in action here.  I Wink-of-Stella’d the black cardstock for a little sparkle there.  And the background is another of my sponged panels.

Again, this is for the Altenew March 2018 Inspiration challenge:

First usage of my Stemmed Statements stamp set here.  I am thinking that I should have purchased a TON more of the Pale Peony papers during the big sale last year.  I really love this gorgeous color, and I have swept through much of the bitty dots part of the package already.  I can tell that it will go fast!

Loving the flowers in this stamp set.

This card is up for the Fab Friday #133 challenge:

Do you get the feeling that you’re being watched?

I think I would like this card slightly more if I hadn’t gone the extra step of trying to stamp in the eyeball section on this little birdie.  One minute it was fine, and the next there’s this creepy look on its face.  (LOL!) 😀

Ah, well.

Loving that Taylored Expressions “weathered” embossing folder, at least!

Anyway, this card is for the CASE This Sketch #263 challenge:

This is a card for the My Favorite Things Sketch #376:

Try as I might, I just could not work that sketch in its original form – vertically.  So I tipped it on its side and went with that.  The flower was created using some of the sponged panels I’ve had sitting around for months.  I haven’t used that Plentiful Petals die very much, but I sure do love it when I do!  Wow!

I am also using my word dies much more.  I have been hesitant to use them, because I am not very patient with intricate dies.  But I have found that using some adhesive-backed fun foam on the back of my cardstock gives it a bit of reinforcement, and then I am able to work with the word dies better.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Here today with a card for the Freshly Made Sketch #328 challenge.

That little square on the right gave me a little angst, but all’s well that ends well, right?  I used my new Mixed Bouquet stamp set for the flowers.  And I think I am on a navy blue kick – can’t seem to leave my Enchanted Evening DP alone.  And Berry Sorbet is my new go-to color.
