...ahhh stamping


Ed - ink colous are Ocean tides ( Papertreyink), Smokey grey (Versafine) and Tim Holtz distress ink Antique linen (Ranger). Ta for asking.


Finally got a moment or two to stamp - Used the Guidelines 2 set for the patterned paper and the Anniversary set teacup (all PapertreyInk stamps and card), with polka dots basics for the spotty backgrounds. Ocean tides (again!) and a wee sprinkle of PTI bitty dot paper, kindly donated by Genevieve, thank you chickie.

Used some distress Ink around the edges to make it vintagy. Lugged out the sewing machine even, full of energy last night.

And do you like my flowers? - finally gave in and bought some prima ones - really like these, also had a wee bit of felt swirly stuff in a drawer, seemed to work.

Went to the Stitch and craft show in Belfast today, have to say it was better than previous years - I love all the wee stalls with women from various groups all making lace and spinning yarn and all that. Loads of cardmaking supplies this year and found a few stamp shops I didn't know existed!! Must get my stamping buddy organised and do a wee shop hop some of these days.

Hope they tickle

  10. First time visiting your blog . . . I love your cards! . . . just wondering though, are you using craft ink? I haven't 'splurged' yet to buy any and noticed your guidelines looked like you had maybe used some on it, I love how it turned out. I'm also a newbie to Papertrey . . . Been a Stampin Up! nut. :o)
