After sorting through all my digis the other week I thought it was time I did the same with my stamps and have finally got them in some sort of order. I was hoping to find Mojo hiding in the back of the cupboard ready to come and have a play but no such luck! Still I did manage to get a couple of cards made using some of my older stamps and I've found a mountain of NBUS stamps which I've put out ready to ink up.
For my first card I used a LOTV stamp coloured with Promarkers and chalks. As Mojo wouldn't come to play I found a super sketch to follow and used a loose sheet of paper (so not sure of make), some snippets of card and a length of twine. I left it without a sentiment for the time being as I reckon this would be fine for a birthday or retirement or even father's day.
This is heading over to
Penny Black and More challenge 'for the boys'
Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge 'sketch + stamped image'
I just got a pot of Ranger gold embossing powder and wanted to try it out so I reached out for the nearest piece of card (which had been dry embossed using an Embossalicious folder on one corner) and used a Uniko stamp from the Pure Florals Gerbera set. I decided to try and make it up into a card so used some thick (Hunkydory I think) patterned card as a base card then added a gold peel-off sentiment, stick on butterfly and some pearls. When I asked Hubby for his opinion he replied 'pretty'.... so hopefully it didn't turn out too bad although I'm still not sure about not colouring the flower.
This is for
Uniko challenge 'flowers'
Stamping Sensations challenge 'anything with flowers'
That's it from me for now, hopefully I can motivate myself to get a bit more creative as I've got some fabulous new stamps to have a play with as well as some more Mo Manning digis printed off and waiting to be coloured. Thanks for popping by today and I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend.
