A lovely Crafty Day....


Hi Girls

A couple of days ago on Create and Craft, the lady from Card-io Wendy was on, I recorded the show, so that I could have a go at making some cards using one of the Card-io sets I have and have hardly used.
I ended up making quite a few cards (using a few other "Tiny" stamps I had too.) It did take me a few goes to get the right shapes I wanted, and I masked off areas on some cards and that was a bit tricky (I am such a messy crafter, get ink all over, so white space is usually a no no!)
In the end this is what I came up with. Not as neat as the talented Wendy's cards, but I really had great fun. I am hoping to buy a couple more sets in a couple of weeks at Port Sunlight Stamp Show.









All the stamps used are a mix from different sets, so won't list them (couldn't anyway!), There are also two Card-io Sets and a trailing Lavinia Stamp. The little silhouette bird stamps are from a set by Craftwork Cards. All the inks are Memento/brilliance Cat's Eye's, I find these easy to use with little stamps as they are small and have the pointed end. The Sentiment stamps are woodware.

These are gorgeous Debbie. I love the colours. I bought some small stamps on Saturday to have a play with. Off to see it I can do a catch up on my ipad for the create and craft show. Hugs Mrs A.

Lovely work Debbie, especially the second card, love those colours. I actually ordered those stamps from C&C and the postman has just this minute delivered them. Shame I have to work later and won't have time to play today. They are great for knocking up really quick and pretty cards if you've forgotten someone.
