I finally bought the Papertrey Ink Doily Details die set , I picked up a couple of stamp sets and the new Bright Buttercup inkpad as well. The bag in the back has some alcohol sprays I took to a crop, but haven't put away yet.

There are punch out tools as well, but I thought I'd use them a bit just poking out the cut outs that stick. It's a sort of meditative thing with a productive bonus. At least for now.

I've had a bug for about a month now, that is getting boring, but (knock wood) finally seems to be be passing slowly. Head over to Julia's Stamping Ground for peeks at more crafty spaces.

Your desk is so very tidy. I love that die. Glad you have a tool to poke out all those pesky bits.

Have a great week

You are very patient. Have you tried that tool that has the brush? I have one, but I haven't cut out such intricate designs to use it. April #67

They are lovely dies you have there - but, oh, what a lot of poking out. Some dies just come out really easily, don't they - but some take ages to poke all the bits out. Glad you find it relaxing and therapeutic, though!!
Take care as you recover. God bless.

Lovely die, have you tried running the die through your machine either with waxed paper, or a used.even unused, dryer sheet? Tends to make those bits drop out a lot easier. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #12 xxx

There's less on your desk than I would have thought. I like the dailies and agree with you about the meditativeness (for now). I LOVE the yellow ink pad, what a lovely colour!
