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.

Sweet Stampin' Challenge... Anything but a Card~

Hi Girls~

The Challenge over at Sweet Stampin' this week is to make "Anything BUT a Card".

Don't forget we are a Stamping Challenge, so a touch of Stamping is required on your project somewhere please.... But Good Luck and have Fun!
Sponsored by The Ribbon Girl.

I have made one of my altered Note Books for this one. I love making these and they sell really well at my Fairs too, and seeing I have a local Fair tomorrow, this one will be in my box of goodies.

For this one I have used some papers from my stash, paper flowers, pearls and an Inkidinki doodles Letter Stamp. The punched edge is by Martha Stewart.
I love this Nestie Shape and use it quite a lot, it's one of those that you can use either way round too so very versatile.

Paper Piecing at Sweet Stampin'..

Hello Girls~

Another great Challenge awaits you at Sweet Stampin' this week, one of my favorites...Paper Piecing.
Our Sponsors this week are Live and Love Crafts.

I love this challenge, nothing nicer than finding bits of paper to PP.
I have chosen this Julie Nutting Doll for my card, I have PP her dress. I do this quite often and never tire of it. I have about four of these dolls, but this one is one that I usually go to and is a favorite!
I used some text paper on the base of the card, then stamped some random flowers, sentiments and texture stamps over the top. The doll was stamped on tinted cardstock, I coloured hre hair with copics.
All finished off with a few Hobby House Pearls.
