My son’s birthday card…. I think it’s a little OTT but I enjoyed making it
I even used glitter…Ooooh!!!
Just a bit of catching up again.
Still more to come, so I’ll be back soon.
Thanks for looking.
I bought this set of stamps ages and ages ago (from Ebay) but didn’t really use them, so when I spotted them, I thought I’d have a little play and I love the results!
These two cards are from a set Mum brought me when over from NZ a few months ago… I didn’t find them easy to use but I played with them for a while, just messing, really.
There’s another one somewhere, but I don’t appear to have taken a photo.
This card is made with one of my all time favourite stamps – the grasses! I tried for a long time to get hold of it and since I have, I’ve used it a over and over again. One of my best ever buys, though you can only see a little of it here.
And another I made a little while ago…
Plus, a drawing…
See you very soon!
I’ve been bitten by the stamping bug AGAIN! Hurray!
I’ve had so much fun, playing, the last few weeks, but it’s definitely an addiction…
Just thought I’d share a few of the cards I’ve been making.
I decided to break myself in gently with simple cards… always easiest and, besides which, I have always loved clean and simple!
Then I went back to a few of my unused playtime results…
I’ll be back with some more…just wanted to get to grips with WordPress again and make a start.
It’s great to be back 🙂
Do you sense a theme? I don’t know why that’s what I’m drawn to this year, but I’m just going with it and enjoying it. Lots of glitter on this and some flicked Crafty Notions white spray for snow. Iced Spruce works really well for snow and background trees. The greens are Adirondack Meadow. Words aren’t stamped well, but I still like the patchy look. If I do this again, I’ll go off the page to make it more realistic but time’s run out for now.
I’ve just stamped a stack of simple card fronts and will be trimming and mounting them tonight, while I’m catching up on a couple of my favourite programmes, missed while I was away for the weekend. At least I’ve made a start and although some of them are the same, I’ve varied them slightly. I have loads more to make but I just seem to be making more mess right now and can’t find a flipping thing in my stamping room. One day I’ll learn not to leave everything until last minute – or will I?
I’m entering this into this week’s Drunken Stampers Challenge, which is Glittery Holiday.
Just like buses, nothing for ages then suddenly you get a few posts, lol. I finished these over the last few days but haven’t had chance to photograph them, partly due to lack of light!
The first one is for the One Layer Wednesday challenge, which is to use nothing but a Greetings stamp on two cards, using different colours or placement. Just sneaking in by the skin of my teeth on this one, even though I had hoped to take part earlier in the week!
My first one is embossed in glitter gold EP on champagne pearlescent card.
The second one obviously uses the same stamp, but this time it’s embossed with Pearl Gold EP on a cream 6×4 card. Hard to photograph in this grey light.
Well, since I messed up last time and this has almost become a black and white challenge (with a hint of colour, lol) I thought I’d make some more cos I love black and white and especially with a hint of colour! This is the first of the batch – more to follow when I finish them off.
