Good morning, stampers.  Hope you’re well.

Yesterday I had a bit of a different kind of play – less inky and a bit more organised, playing with different things.

For the Ladies Only Challenge at Allsorts I made this pretty, girly card…I used Spun Sugar for the stencilled background and Prisma Pencils to colour.


Next time I’ll be a little more concerned about where the wording falls – I was so busy making sure the words stamped straight, I didn’t notice the t was on the shoe.

This one was just a simple Penny Black stamp I use a lot for quick cards – I don’t know why but I just love this little sheep! I dry embossed it with one of those partial embossing folders to take away the plainness.


I tried this card last week, but the word didn’t stamp properly and I was really frustrated with it. When I checked it the foam underneath was undercut on all 3 of the set of stamps – I didn’t expect that from Hero Arts. I decided to unmount them and put them on EZ mount – much easier to use and far more reliable now Smile


That’s actually Citrus ink but the photo doesn’t show the brightness well.

While dry embossing, I did a little more on this card.



This one is for the Floral Delight Challenge at Crafty Cardmakers. I love this flower stamp set! The flowers are very  simply coloured with Prisma Pencils and I cut the word stamp in two to give more options. The edges are sponged with Bundled Sage Distress Ink.

I’ll also enter the

Addicted to Stamps Anything Goes Challenge.


Thanks for looking

See you soon
