The Inks Are Out - Stamping Fun...

What a miserable week!  Getting a little fed up now of all this rain.  On the plus side I have been able to get my inks out for some stamping fun!!!!!.  I loved this stamp set as soon as I saw it but hadn't used them - daft I know!  Not any more - I will be using this set lots as it is really versatile and love how this card has turned out.  Really suitable for masculine cards.

Hope you enjoy.

Catching Up - Pics from our last Stamping Class


Whilst clearing up my computer pictures, I found the cards we made at our last stamping class and realised I had forgotten to share them here.  I really enjoyed this class as everyone used the same technique but all of the cards were so unique.  We used colour combinations to show that the same card can look so different just by changing the colour of the ink and ribbon.  Right better go and start preparing for our next stamping class - hope you enjoy.....

Inky Fingers & Stamping Fun ...

No matter how many different cardmaking techniques I try, I still come back to stamping so whilst the rain came down I got out my stamps and had a play.  I really didn't have a card in mind I just wanted to create some toppers but as soon as I stamped this image I just had to turn it into this lovely card - loving purple at the minute....

Supplies used - Stampin Up Faith in Natures Stamps, Stampin Up Elegant Eggplant Ink & Dovecraft Purple Ribbon

Catching Up on Blog Posts - Belated Mother's Day Card

Whilst reviewing the blog, I realised I had not shared with you the card I made for my amazing Mum this year.  This is a really simple card but looks so effective.  I used a Dovecraft Circle Punch and different embossing folders to create the effects and very pleased how this has turned out.

More card ideas will follow shortly......

Digi Stamp & Pro-Marker Fun!!!!

Been having lots of fun with Pro-Markers this weekend, trying different styles. I came across this Digi-Stamp from the Digistamp Boutique which is ideal for Pro-Markers. A slash of Stickles and paper flowers is all you need to really make... this design special.

I am taking delivery next week of some of the new Spectrum Noir Alcohol Pens so it will be really interest to see a comparison. I am a real Pro-Marker Fan and I have heard mixed reviews about these pens but thought I would give them a go so will report back with a review for you all later in the week.

Hope you enjoy.....
