February Craft Stamper

February Craft Stamper is out this Friday, January 1st. Looking at the Craft Stamper website ,it seems to have some great projects once again.
My project this time was stamping on glass, which did prove to be quite challenging! Here's a sneak peek of one of the glass items I decorated:

Thanks for looking!

In the Bleak Midwinter...

Well, that's what it feels like here! The boiler's broken down!!! Typical, just before Christmas and when I've got my 85 year old mother staying who's broken her leg (in Singapore actually - she had to be repatriated with a nurse escort, but that's another story!)
The plumber's here now putting a new boiler in - he's got 3 men on it just to get it done by tomorrow - I'm so grateful.
Anyway, as I can't go out I've made another Christmas card to wish everyone a Happy Christmas and to thank you all for taking the trouble to visit my blog and leave comments.
It looks like this close-up:

Recognise those stamps? They're from the Elusive Images Snow is Falling plate. And in full like this:

The words are from the Crafty Individuals Christmas Trees CI-257 and the snowy flourish is an Inkadinkado Filigree Snowman set.

Happy Christmas to you all!

On your bike...!

I haven't had time to blog much lately as we seem to have had one crisis after another, finishing off with the boiler deciding to give up the ghost on the coldest night of the year! It's always the way isn't it!

Anyway, here's a card I made for my nephew Huw's birthday. It uses the Boys on Bikes stamp from Elusive Images and is finished with the Cogs and Watch parts from PaperArtsy:

I rounded all the corners - don't know why, just felt like it!

Thanks for looking!

January Craft Stamper

Yes, January Craft Stamper is out in the shops this Friday and it's a great issue.
It's got loads of different ideas in. Here's a sneak peek from the Scraps to Scrumptious article I wrote - this card uses the Elusive Images Butterfly Poppy and Daisy collage stamps:

Actually, that's the only sneak peek I can give you as I forgot to take any more photos!!! You'll just have to buy the magazine!

I also took part in the Stamping Contrasts article which uses the fabulous Keeper stamps by Artistic Outpost from Happy Daze - I'm not telling you how many of those sets I've got - just can't resist them!! You can see extra ideas on the Happy Daze blog.

Thanks for looking!
