Stamp Festival Treasures

Hello Everybody,

Thanks for all your lovely comments, they were very much appreciated.

As some of you already know, I went to my local Stamp Festival at Hulme Hall in Port Sunlight last Saturday and came home with some goodies of course.

I count myself very lucky indeed to have such an event on my doorstep, well a 20 min drive away. It was very busy, but it was great to see some new artists showcasing their gorgeous stamps. Needless to say I had a ball ….

Here is a card I made using one of my new goodies …

Take Time


The set I used is called ‘Flowers Grow’ and is by Crafty Roo Designs.

For this one-layer card, I inked an acrylic block with bashful blue and pistachio pudding and stamped directly on my base card. I then used wild wasbi and marina mist markers to colour my stamps to stamp the growing plant, flower and sentiment.

I like the card in it’s simplicity and for the soft almost watercolour look. Initially I thought about adding a doodled frame, that was before I finished stamping. I now feel that it would be too heavy and detract from the simple beauty.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

House of Cards – photo inspiration, any style

Hope you feel inspired! Back soon … until then

Happy Crafting!!! 🙂
