What a day at the CHA...

Hi there.
Thanks for popping in!

It’s 6am and I thought I’d catch up with you before the show. 
Yesterday went swimmingly - really well.
After all those fears and worries about it!
Lots of interest, plenty of orders.
the Groovi went down an absolute storm, 
so tomorrow I will go back!!
I met lots of very genuinely interested and hands on women.
A few suits looking to make a quick buck out of us, but the creatives were there in force.

In the meantime,
how about a quick step by step 
using the new wee houses and shops?
These stamps are awesome!




Stamp out a selection of them next to one another 
on a piece of Theuva Card, and colour one of them in.
Cor, wouldn’t you just love him for a neighbour?


Let’s glaze the colourful one.
Go over the colour with a Versamark Pen,
and coat with Clear Embossing Powder


Heat gently from underneath using a heatgun.


Cut out masks.
I go back and forth on whether we should get the masks machine cut and supply them.
On the one hand it’s very convenient.
On the other hand, they are really easy to cut out.
Mind you, so are the Letterbox stamp boxes, 
and we can’t make enough of them!
What do you think?
AYE or NAY?


Cover the houses, add a mini moon mask, and then 
lightly dust back and forth with a Clarity Stencil Brush

loaded with Black Distress ink.
These brushes were selling like hotcakes here at the CHA yesterday.


 Trim the card back and edge with a Black Sharpie pen and ruler.


Mount on a piece of card which brings out the colour 
in the house that you don’t want next door.


Keep it simple, eh.
I’d best get up and get going.
Lying here in bed with my Mac Book Air isn’t going to get it done!


Love and hugs from California,

  9. Knew you would be a great success. Don't know how you still had time for a tutorial for us. You must be exhausted and another long day ahead. Think the masks are a great idea. Knock them dead again today. You are so brilliant at what you do.

  17. So glad it's all going well, Barbara, especially re Groovi, which is such a genius innovation crafty people are bound to love it! And I love these wee stamps too. Re your question, I'd say Aye to getting a machine-cut mask with the wee houses stamps. Yes, they're quite easy to do, but those tiny chimneys need precision cutting or we end up with white tidemarks around them so, I'm an Aye! :) I love using all the small stamps – it's fantastic that they can be used together to make so many different designs. Hope everything keeps going well in California! x

  18. Hi Barb,
    So pleased to hear that yesterday went so well - I knew it would as Groovi is just a fantastic product. Really like what you have done with the Wee shops and houses. I think masks would be a brilliant idea. I don't mind cutting out but then I lose the blooming things! So yes a big thumbs up for masks from me. I hope today is as big a success ( or bigger) as yesterday. Love Alison xx

  19. So glad to hear that things are going well. I'd say a definite yes to the masks; so much easier to keep track of on a sheet.

  22. Mask every time for me, please, as I am just starting out with masks/stamps so anything that makes things easier is a yes from me. Don't work too hard, Barbara.

    ReplyDelete
  23. hope day 2 is as good as yesterday, I am sure it will be. Masks sound a good idea to me, they would be an exact fit & lie snug to the paper when adding colour over them as with the moon mask.

    ReplyDelete
  24. It's an Aye for me. We, your followers, never had any doubts that Clarity and the Groovi would go down a storm in the States. It is just too good a product not to work. Glad it is all going well over there. How many more machines does Dave need to fire up? xxx Maggie

  25. You are so right - these stamps ARE awesome and I AM going to buy them and I would also buy the masks if they were available 'cos I'm a real beginner at this (actually I haven't even started yet - just limbering up so to speak). So pleased everything went well for you yesterday.

  33. So happy that the Groovi system is going down so well. It's a wonderful system. In fact I have been in the groove this morning making a card for a friend. I love the wee houses but haven't ordered them yet for the simple reason I have ordered a lot of clarity recently and am dangerously close to being addicted! However the masks just might sway it! If you didn't do masks they will fall in my basket very soon! Have a good time in LA xx

    I love having the masks with the stamps. The masks don't take long to do ... but I always want to get on to the colouring part. Maybe I'm just too impatient!

    I'm really pleased you are having a good time at CHA, I knew you would be fab and that you and all things Clarity/Groovi would go down really well

    Hope the rest of the show and your journey home goes well

    PS - I don't think I would use masks for the houses so personally i'd prefer to see them as an added extra so people can choose to buy the stamps with or without the masks.

    Really pleased (but not surprised!) that the Groovi system is doing well in the States. Now you can relax a bit and enjoy the rest of the trip without the anxiety of it being a hit or miss.

  73. Masks please agree with everyone else and they cling so well that ink doesn't bleed under them. The stamps are on my wish list and masks would also be. Glad Groovi is going well I think we all had more confidence than you I remember your first TV presentation and it was back to the old sweaty palms! On benefit is that it stops you getting complacent and keeps you focused on the customers so you are always on to a winner. XX

    I'm so pleased all is going well for you and they love Groovi and Clarity. We knew you could do it! Today's artwork is gorgeous haha I think I would probably be in the house opposite this one knowing my luck! I think the masks will be useful, especially for people who use colour bursts - I've not tried them yet but love how they look.
    Take care and have fun

  79. Glad everything is going so well. Yes to masks from me, in fact I think all of your stamps should have masks - I'd buy them to match my stamps. Having masks to go with the stamps might also be unique to Clarity. I'm just going over the challenge blog as I got an email saying my entry is on it. This is the first time I have put in a card!

    3. Thanks guys for your kind comments, I was just pleased that I had come up with an idea. You lot are so creative. Donna, I started with Process Magenta and took it off with Pistacihio (system 3) I then stencil brushed with Adironack Cranberry. I find it really funny seeing all the entries appear as I could only think of one way of doing my card - so many different ways to do the same thing!

      Delete
    4. That's what I love about the challenges, we all have the theme but not one card is the same or done the same way. Thank you for the colours, I was hoping they were system 3 as I haven't got any Fresco paints (yet!) Good luck in the challenge. Xx

    I haven't got any Clarity mask yet, but I get envy every time I see you using them, so I'd say yes!

  82. Funny, great minds and all that, just finishing a card for my father-in-law for his birthday with similar idea, check it out at https://kazzieb.wordpress.com. I just picked out some of the houses in a colour panel using Pan Pastels. Glad event going well, not surprised they love Groovi, don't we all, but hoping this really puts you on the map in U.S. I definitely vote for masks, all for making life easier. Enjoy rest of your event, looking forward to seeing Ken with you on Hochanda on your return. Hugs Karen xxx

    2. I was watching the stampboard lady on Hochanda who just used sponges to apply them from outside edge in. Check her out when she is on, she made it look easy and I was pretty pleased with how background came out. I'll post another picture tomorrow of a wee house on stampboard, this looked OK too for a first attempt. I guess if you use a little like inks with makeup sponges and do a Barbara, build it up slowly, seems to work. At least given me confidence to try and use them some more as they are delicious colours. Have a play and see what you come up with. Good luck Karen xxx

    3. Hi Karen I've got the sponges that go with the pan pastels I use them for my inks too I think I put too much on as it comes off might try with a little less and what the stamp board lady thank you for your help xxx

    4. Found stampbord lady's name. Fiona Jones, this is her website www.projects4crafters.com and she has a blog too. I checked out youtube and the idea is you just sweep twice across the palette, don't go round and round as you get much too much. Guy who invented them says if you are getting lots of loose powder on top, you are overloading the product. Less is more as our Barbara would say

  84. Hi Barbara, So pleased all is going well. Great that the groovi is appreciated in the USA too! You deserve success. Masks for the wee houses and shops would be fantastic! Enjoy the rest of your trip. Hugs Marian

  85. Hi Barbara
    It's wonderful to hear that things are going well. I never say no to a mask and yours are so good. The ink doesn't drag as much as it does on paper ones. Looking forward to more news from the CHA.
    Hugs from Chris X

  93. Great little house stamps and so attractively arranged in your blog and TV samples. I do like the effect of highlighting one. Yes we can cut out post its but very fiddly and less durable than masks.
    Pleased its going so well for you over there. Carol

  94. Loving your artwork with the new wee houses, wasn't sure I needed them but your artwork and that of the DT have convinced me otherwise so they are on the wishlist.I would definitely welcome the addition of masks for the wee houses and shops.
    Glad all went well, how could they not love the Groovi system, it's amazing!!!
    Have a great day xx
