Whipper Snapper

I have had this Whipper Snapper stamp for ages and have hardly used it!! I think we are all the same, we all have so many stamps that they very rarely see daylight lol. So I am trying to use the stamps that I haven't used for a long time. This stamp is called "Flowers for you" (LY818) and like to title says it is by Whipper Snapper.

Backing paper - My Minds Eye

Ribbon - Dovecraft

Flower - SU punch 5 petal flower (112829) From Jules

Oval greetings - stamping up oval punches and Oval all stamp set from Jules.

Hope everyone is ok have a good evening

Just wanted to show you a picture of the new rack I bought for my craft room. It is made to store your ink pads. The only ink pads that don't really fit is the SU ones which you can see at the bottom right hand side. Other than that it is perfect for storing your ink pads and the shelves are removable so you can store slightly taller things like your stickles. I bought this rack here.

It needs a few more ink pads to fill it lol, but I am working on it!! Please excuse the wonky photo. My photography is rubbish lol.

Hope everyone has had a good weekend so far. Back later with a card.

Christmas Fairy Doodles

I made this card with one of the new christmas Fairy Doodles stamp sets from Buzzcrafts. I love these little designs and they are fabulous to colour too

I stamped the image on to white card and coloured in. I then chalked the image with Versa magic chalk pad then over stamped a swirl stamp around the edges of the image. I also stamped the swirls down the edge of the card blank and cut around the image to give the edge of the card a little extra detail. I made the buttons by making some matching backing paper in the same way as I chalked the card, then I punched them out with some round punches. Then I punched some holes in the centres with my Crop-a-dile. To finish them I heat embossed them with Ultra thick embossing enamel. The image was then mounted on Silver Miri card and I also stuck a piece of silver miri board on the inside of the card to show off the edge of the card.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend.
