Jane again!

Here are the other two projects I made with the Artistic Outpost Jane's Countryside stamps from Happy Daze. The first is a picture:

As you can see, I had a lot of fun teaming it up with the floral Pink Paislee Sweetness papers.

For the second project, I made a brooch:

Jane's embroidery

If you saw my WOYWW entry with the Jane Austen stamps, this post shows one of the projects I made. Here's a close-up of Jane:

And here's the full view:

I was searching for something to use and found this old embroidery hoop which seemed very apt!

The stamps are Artistic Outpost Jane's Countryside and are available from Happy Daze. I've teamed them up with the Pink Paislee Sweetness papers (also from Happy Daze) which have those lovely floral corners that you can cut round and overlap. I thought I'd better add in some (very basic) embroidery as well!!

Thanks for looking!

Route 66

Here's a close up view of that block of wood thingy you could see on my desk on Wednesday:

It uses Artistic Outpost stamps Route 66 available from Happy Daze.
I've gone for primary colours - don't you just love that cactus stamp?!

Thanks for looking!

It's that time again - WOYWW!

This week I've got the Artistic Outpost stamps out, available from Happy Daze. I love these stamps - they're just a little bit different. There's a set there with Jane Austen - I'm going to do some artwork with those. And then the motorbike thing (another block of wood!) is another set called Route 66 - great for men's stuff.

Thanks for looking!


The clay gargoyle was made for me by daughter when she was at middle school (she's now 15). It always makes me smile!

Butterfly tree...

Believe it or not, this is an offcut of wood - I think it was a sort of plaque thing cut in half - that I've decorated with paint, papers, stamps and die cuts.
The stamps are all Crafty Individuals, and I've used quite a few different ones and parts of images as well:

The little girl is from one of the new sets CI-292 She just seemed to be looking in the right direction! The leaves and flowers climbing up the tree are from CI-149 and CI-262.
If you look carefully you can just see part of the Steampunk Butterfly in the background and the birdcage.

The diecuts are also from Crafty Individuals, from the Collections range. I just loved this tree and birdhouse.
The gold paint I've used is Eco Green Pure Gold from The Craft Barn. It's a really lovely gold.

Thanks for looking!

More ducks...

I've used that wonderful duck stamp again from Crafty Individuals but gone for a different look this time:

I've used Crafty Individuals papers as well and stamped the corners with part of the Steampunk Butterfly and some cogs and text from the Crafty Elements Ship set. The diecuts are done on the Silhouette:

Thanks for looking!

Happy New Year!

Here's another card with Crafty Individuals Steampunk Butterfly:

I've teamed it up with 7Gypsies Victoria papers this time for a completely different look.
