Whoops! I'm late...

with my blog post for PaperArtsy! Here's a sneak peek of what I did this time with Darcy's stamps:


Don't fall off your chair - I've used muted colours! That was deliberate - I wanted to show how these stamps suit all styles, so get out your papers, brads and ribbons and have a go!

Thanks for looking!

Craft barn Demo

Had a lovely time on Saturday demoing at the Craft Barn. Many thanks to all who came along and for putting up with all my chatter!
Here's some of the stuff I made using Darcy stamps and the gorgeous Marion Smith papers:




I've got a class on Saturday 19th using the Darcy stamps again - we're going to make a tag book and box:


It should be a fun day, so come along and join us if you fancy it.

Thanks for looking!

Delectable Darcy Stamps...

I'm demoing with these on Saturday at The Craft Barn. I've tried to show how to create different looks using papers, Distress Stains and metal. Here's a sneak peek:




As you can see there's lots of different looks you can create. So, do come along and join me if you can. 
You can also see Jane Gill and Carole Cockbain demoing as well so should be a good day.

Thanks for looking!

Ring, ring, ring ....

on the telephone.
Here's a card I made using one of the new chunky tag stamps from Crafty Individuals:


Quite subtle colours for me! I've layered the tag onto a piece of patterned paper that's been stencilled over and then onto more patterened paper (Prima, I think!). Here's a couple of close-ups:

I could have danced all night....

As it's the last day of February and the February Challenge over on the Crafty Individuals blog, I thought I'd better post this tag (I know - I'm late!!!):




It uses CI-337 with Gelatos in my favourite colours and the Crafters Workshop 6x6 Confetti template. Instead of using black for my silhouette which seemed a bit harsh, I've used StazOn Midnight Blue with black pencil rubbed round the edges.

Thanks for looking!

Who could resist these two?!
Stamps used: CI-370, CI-381 and the stars and text from CI-374.

Thanks for looking!
