As you can see, I was inspired by Linda’s very classy colour scheme. I’ve used an oldy by Elusive Images called Harlequin Christmas, and instead of using gold embossing paste, I’ve embossed the background and images with Stampendous gold detail embossing enamel. I finished off with some gold ribbon bows and punched Woodware stars, a pearly brad on the tag, and stamped words from another EI set on the card.
I was inspired by the colours, trees and stencilling on Linda’s week two tag. I base-coated my card and tag with PaperArtsy Snowflake Fresco Finish Paint, then stencilled with London Bus Fresco and That’s Crafty! Dinky stencils Floral Background and Diamond Circles Background. The trees are by Artemio, and are stamped with Wendy Vecchi Fern Green Archival Ink. The sentiment is by Elusive Images, and is stamped in Potting Soil. I inked the edges with Potting Soil, then added some Tim Holtz Gilded Accents Remnant Rubs. I finished off with a sprinkling of Stampendous Frantage Aged Gold embossing enamel.
I was inspired by Linda’s colour scheme and the embossed stars on her tag. I used vintage photo and stormy sky distress inks and PaperArtsy stamp set by Sara Naumann ESN18. For the stars, I mixed some Golden regular semi-gloss gel with a drop of Golden iridescent bronze fluid acrylic, to apply through That’s Crafty! Dinky stencil Star Shower.
I’m ready for the new month for a change! A simple spread, using PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paint and Infusions, with the mini hexagon gel press plate, and PaperArtsy Seth Apter stamps. I used Darkroom Door alphabet stamps for the title.
I’m off to Port Sunlight’s Happy Stamper show tomorrow, demonstrating on the PaperArtsy stand. I can’t wait! And, our dear son Gordon is moving out, and up to Manchester, so we’ll be just the two of us rattling around our bungalow after this weekend. Proud, but sad to see him going.
Welcome to my blog. I'm a 47 year old mum of two teenagers, who is addicted to stamping and altering. Since I discovered rubber stamps, they have taken over my life! I hope you get some inspiration from my blog. Thanks for looking, Alison xx
