Stamping fun..

IMG_2855 (Medium)Todays card is similar to yesterdays – same colours, and stamp set ( serene silhouettes from stampin up). I also used the same free embossing folder, and the ribbon and sentiment are also from stampin up. The chalk ink I used is Prima brand – I like them for colouring my stamps if I want to use more than one colour in the one stamp as they are a little stamp pad and I have more control over where the colour is going on the stamp. The flower is also Prima.Today I found some neglected paper so I have been making some retro 50’s style cards – lots of buttons and ric-rac. Til tomorrow….

IMG_2854 (Medium)Now and again I get out my inks and stamps, and go to town! For the next few days we will have a stamping special where I will show you what I have been working on lately.This one uses all stampin up – cardstock – pretty in pink,raspberry ripple and primrose petals. The stamp is from Serene Silhouettes stamp set and stamped in Raspberry ripple ink, and even the ribbon is stampin up! I die cut a circle through the top two layers of cardstock so that the lowest colour showed through, and I have just realised the embossing folder I used was not stampin up – it was a freebie off the front of a magazine. Had a lovely crafty afternoon with some other like minded ladies, swapped tips, saw what each other were working on, and enjoyed afternoon tea together – it was lovely after doing lessons back to back this week to just sit, craft and relax! Til tomorrow….
