Cards Made With New Stamps





These are my first cards made with my new stamps. I really enjoyed using these stamps and decided to try something a little different. I used scraps of paper from my stash that had been around for ages just stuck in my scrap draw. I used Whisper pens for the colouring and Tim Holts Distressing ink. The Flowers and from my Prima Bucket and the ribbon used is from Little silver hat.

Hope you are all well, I haven't blogged for a few days as I managed to fall over while playing football in the park with my little boy! lol. Think I will leave football alone and stick to crafting, much safer I thinks!! (especially with Flip flops on!

Hi Maria, I hope you're much better now!!!
I had to stop by and say how gorgeous these cards are...they are different for you, but absolutely stunning!!! I'm envious, the 'distressing' thing never seems to work out for me, so I've kinda given up trying...maybe you've inspired me to be a wee bit braver.
Luv'n'Hugs
