Default You have been bitten by the stamping bug...

And just like Spiderman, you have developed a super-power.

What is your stamping super-power?

Good one Linda. Mine would be drawing. I admire the stampers who draw their own images on their card! What's yours?

Gosh this is tough. Several things practice is not helping with...like coloring/shading or layout or fussy cutting....

I dont know how to explain it. I need to be able to actually do what I see in my head. Actualization isnt quite right. I have the motivation. I dont have the capacity. I can do techniques but they dont come together right. And then I struggle for a compromise. If I never get skin tones right I can live with it. I guess the closest would be layout.

After a crafting session, I would need only to stare at the mess that I left and all my tools and supplies would teleport back to where they belonged, leaving a clean area for the next onslaught.

(This would also be a useful skill in non-crafting life - my desk at work, putting away laundry . . .)

I'm like Cheryl with a C, only more like Jeannie with a J, as in "I Dream of..."

I cross my arms, blink my eyes and what I need miraculously appears. Another blink when I'm finished and it is magically put away.

I think I killed two birds with one blink, well 2 blinks: I never lose anything anymore and I never have to clean up!

Does anyone remember the Disney film "The Sword in the Stone"? Merlin packs up his entire house into a carpet bag by enchanting everything to dance its way over and get small enough to fit. Yeah - that's how I roll in my craft room, super power-wise. It all fits in a small satchel I can carry everywhere, and there's ALWAYS room for more!

My super power would be to think of any product or tool that I want to use and have it magically appear on my table. No buying it. No storing it. No putting it away.

But if I couldn't have that power, I think I'd take Carla's power of being able to draw or Cheryl's power of wishing everything back to its place when I'm done.

The ability to find anything in my quilt/scrap room in just a few minutes. I often have to unload three plastic tubs from the closet, and get the bottom tub to find that piece of embellishment,lace,raffia, but I can do it with ease.
Dh thinks my room is always a disaster, but doesn't look that way to me.

Time would stop. I would go to my table, snap my fingers and time would stop. I would make cards, re-org my supplies, clean off my work area or mop my foor - then snap my fingers and my watch would say 3 seconds later.

No more having my whole day get sucked up by the craft room.

I don't live within many kilometres of anyone who stamps so my superpower would be to be able to fly, with all my supplies, to any stamping get together that would have me join.

I like the idea of time traveling....so I could enjoy all the stamping I want without having to lose time with family and keeping up with my responsibilities!

I sure would like to learn more painting skills: Linda, Sallie and Dina come to mind. Also, would love to be more successful at CAS: Birgit, Karen Dunbrook and so many others have mastered it in a way I only occasionally achieve.
Hmmm, inventing a super duper stamping tool would be fun too!

Wait....here's the real one I need, Contentment would be a superpower I'd really like so I would not always want the latest greatest thing or to be more like other people!

My super power is shopping and hunting down bargains for the craft supplies I want. My other developing super power is learning to be more imaginative and let the creative juices flow.

I've been trying to think what the best use of my wish would be... I DO like the **Snap** and things are put away!

Then I thought about the Money Tree I have been trying to plant for years. Maybe it's a super power thing? What think you all about a Money Tree? I would be happy to provide cuttings... at a reasonable fee of course haha

My super power would be the ability to laser cut paper with my eyes so I could cut out anything (crafting wise) I needed without having to use aNY sort of cutting machine whether it be manual or electronic.
My secondary superpower would be the ability to stop time. Because if I could do that I wouldnt need things to magically put themselves away.

Even if I could stop time, I'd still need my put-away super power. Because every time I start with cleaning up and getting organized, I find things I forgot I had, and OOOHH SHINEY - and I'm playing instead of cleaning again.

Easy: my superpower would be to stamp a sentiment anywhere on a card I want, on any surface including textured and watercolor paper, and have it stamp perfectly every single time.

PS no need to chime in about the MISTI — my superpower costs me nothing

My Superhero Friends, I have a challenge for those of you with attainable super hero skills. Start doing your homework and practice to achieve that goal. After posting mine, drawing, I realized I could do something about it. I've found some great tutorials and am starting with the basics. I dragged out a sketch book, pens and pencil and started practicing. Progress is slow, but it's progress! I've got pages full of eyes, lips, noses and faces with a few silly birds and animals thrown in for fun. After all, fun is what this marvelous hobby is about

My sister worked her way through THIS BOOK, and saw a huge difference in her drawing. I have it in my Amazon cart, waiting for the next paycheck...

Hard to top the "blinking" things back into place, but then, I get inspiration from some of the mess left on my workbench, so I guess if it were always put away, I'd never get those moments!

#1 would have to be having perfect control over my blade when carving a stamp, so that I never have those little gaps or lumps no matter how fine a line I am carving.

#2 would be perfect control over mySELF when applying inked stamp to paper. No matter how I line things up (even with a positioner) I invariably twitch at the last nano-second. Oh well..that's what builds character, right?

My superpower would be amazing eyesight to see very tiny things, close up and far away. I have never had good eyesight, but as I have reached the upper 60's, I'm having trouble seeing things---a tough thing when life is crafting. I've had surgeries, lenses, glasses, ah well, you asked!

Wow. That is so cool. Did you have any previous drawing experience?

I drew a sink for one of my HYCCT cards and my son thought it was a serving tray. In short, my drawing skills stink and I could use help. I'm not interested in drawing people (at least not yet) but I would love to learn how to draw tea cups, pencils, chairs, tables and that kind of stuff. Do you know of any tutorials that might help?

Sue, how about that book? Is it for drawing people or are there tips for drawing objects?
Edited to add that I just looked "inside" the book on Amazon and it's a people drawing book.

This would definitely be mine too!! I have a small craft room so with a messy person like me it doesn't take long for there to be things everywhere!

While there are quite a few exercises that are geared toward that, the few that I did with my sister when we were together recently were more about perception and "seeing" things in unorthodox ways so that it's easier to translate 3-D to 2-D. Those skills would be helpful no matter what the subject matter is, I'm thinking...

Does doodling count as experience, My dad used to draw these funny cartoons, face profiles and silly animals. That's been my repertoire for the last 55 years! I've been inspired by the SCS challenges that require drawing and pages on Pinterest. I practiced eyes first and was amazed at my improvement. Bonus, since I've got a pen/pencil in hand, I'm not snacking at night!!

Sue, I'll have to check out that book. Sounds like just what I need!!
Melissa, If I see any other good tutorials, I'll pm you.

Bonus, since I've got a pen/pencil in hand, I'm not snacking at night!!

Sue, I'll have to check out that book. Sounds like just what I need!!
Melissa, If I see any other good tutorials, I'll pm you.

My super power would be to build on an extra room for my craft room! LOL Now THAT would take some doing!!!!! LOL

My super power would be extraordinary vision! Then I would be able to see where the things I drop really are! Plus I wouldn't have to take my glasses off to see the tablet or fine detailed work!

Ha! I have to put glasses ON to see detailed work. I keep a pair of +3.50 in the craft room.

Carla, I looked inside the book on Amazon, and remember reading that the author thinks doodling while younger is a big help on learning to draw. I think this book is going on my wishlist.

I don't think there's such a group here. You could start one - I'd join it!
