Hello there! Well its been a long old week - and yet time has run away with me and I almost missed Christmas card club...only one card made and its not the best - but still ... that'll teach me to take too much on!
It is a bit more glittery than it looks here - I do hope it will do Kate?
Here's my mum's make...
Mum used a kanban stamp.
Have a great Sunday - we are off to a Dickensian Christmas market - looking forward to it!
Hello there! Just wanted to add some makes from the vintage flowers shows for Indigoblu on hochanda last week. I love these stamps!!! There's a part 2 coming up this week with more vintage flower stamps being released on Hochanda.
Here's the last show's samples:
Loved working with these stamps - sadly haven't been able to join in with the new shows samples - just too busy! Hope you can check out the shows anyway!
Good morning! How are you? I do hope you are well and happy. Things here are awfully busy but I am plodding on. I nearly missed the christmas card club this fortnight but luckily my mum is on the ball and she reminded me - so here I am. The theme this fortnight was 'anything goes' ... I used some new stamps from Paperartsy to make two tag cards...
I already had the tags made so just added the cow images and stamped over the card to make the background. All I needed to do then was a quick batch of paper piecing and my cards were made.
Mum's cards are two she made whilst at the cumbria crafters retreat with Jo Rice - I can't even recall if I have posted my makes as yet.
stamps are by lavinia...
Hope you have a great Sunday - we are off venturing at some point!
Hello there and Happy November! I do hope you are well and happy! Time to share a new challenge with you since its the first today. The theme at Countryview challenges is handstamped image. I really enjoyed this one - stamping is my favourite thing! Here is what I made:
Two cards made by stamping one background image.
I started by using inks and a mask and a landscape stencil to create a background...
then I used a paperartsy stencil to add some of the flora.
Then the stamping - my favourite part. Paperartsy stamps here - all by Kay Carley.
Colouring - mostly using water colour pencils.
Then I cut the picture in two to create two cards - this first one I just added a sentiment.
To the second I added more stamping in black with Lavinia stamps.... and a sentiment.
