Today, I’ve been really, REALLY messy, to make up for the clean cards I made in the last couple of days, lol. I’ve been making Marvy Metallic Backgrounds and Twinkler backgrounds – this one was my very own idea, too – not one I found elsewhere, so I’m quite proud of it.

One of the advantages of having had a stamping business was that I had to have a supply of most things I sold, so that I could demo them and also so that the people attending workshops and Stamp Club could use them. I know it sounds daft but it was sometimes a disadvantage because there was just too much to choose from and Twinklers were no exception, although I rarely use them now, which is a shame. They’re so glitzy and the colours are so beautiful. My set is the larger sized jars and in amidst all those pretty jewel like colours, I found some of the smaller Twinklers – 13 in fact – which we must have used before the larger sized jars arrived! So if anyone would like them, just leave a comment here and I’ll put your name in a hat. If they’ve been used at all, they’ve been VERY lightly used, but some of them have no lids – I don’t use lids because they jam if you put them on when the paint is still wet…

The colours are:- Fuzzy Peach, Stargazer, Coral Berry, Wisteria, Evening Primrose, Razzle Berry, Nutmeg, Black Orchid, Bolivian Blue, Oregano, Caribbean Mist, Jasper Red – I think!!

While I remember, I also have a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder that I managed to double up on – don’t know how, but it was probably while doing classes or something… again, very lightly used, although I can’t tell the one I’ve used more from the other now. If you’re interested in that, please leave a comment. It’s the Birds and Swirls design.

I’d VERY MUCH appreciate it if you’d stipulate which one you’re interested in – Twinklers or Embossing Folder – or I won’t be able to enter you for the draw. I’ll draw a name over the weekend.

32 very much appreciated comments:

Glennis said...

I hope it is OK to put my name in for both draws. I have never tried those paints but I love anything that glimmers or has a metallic sheen. The cb folder looks great and one that I do not have.
Thanks for the chances

Finally - I'm halfway to leaving a comment. Wanted to even without the candy I just loved the bleeding tissue item - definitely going to have a go at that!.
I have the folder - and lots of Twinklers (though not those colours) but I'm not commenting for the sake of candy! Have been following your blog for ages and have only just mastered the 'follower' bit! What a Dodo LOL

Oh I'm so glad life is getting back to normal and you are making a mess again, lol.
I love my twinklers too although I don't have any of those colours. I also don't bother with the lids cos they're a blooming nuisance.
Pretty please enter me in the draw for the twinklers. Thank you, x
