... Were you at the party, did you see the new stuff?


So did you go to the Stamp TV forums last night to see all the new sets at Gina K's? This was one of the cards I posted at the party - it got a little crazy and I was having trouble keeping up with all the posts, but it was so exciting to be a part of the release! Big news for me was that five former WMS sets re-released at Gina K's last night, have you seen them?

If you have not already seen the new releases, you can pop over here to Gina K Store and see all the new goodies in one go.

Also there are blog hops planned, so stay tuned, I have LOADS to show you from this release!


One of the sets revealed was Fill it with Flowers by Melanie Muenchinger, and I used it for this card - I literally filled the large cup image with a flower, lol. I love to try and find unexpected ways to use stamps and I cannot tell yo how good it feels to be creating again!

It was a simple job to make a reverse mask for the mug image but cutting the mug OUT of a sheet of paper and setting the hole over the stamped image. I just stamped the flower within - couple of how-to pics here.


You get the finished, decorated mug.


Next thing was to make a mask of the mug and taggy shapes, I use post it notes. Easy to cut and stick themselves down.


Then I did a little sponging because I never got around to buying air canisters for my copic airgun...


Et voilĂ  - a nice background to highlight the white mug. All that was left was to punch a wee hole for the tea bag string and slit a tiny opening at the top of the mug and feed the string through. I scored the frame in a trellis using my scorpal. Hope it tickles!

  2. That's lovely Claire! Can try this with stamps I've already got - thanks for the inspiration! Meant to say before now, having been there at the start of WMS I was sad to see the end but so pleased to see you moving on and still inspiring us. But what will I do for beautiful Christmas stamps in 2016! :o)
