First Try With Peg Stamps

I was watching Create and Craft this morning where the products being demonstrated were by Card-io stamps.  They specialise in peg stamps.  I have had several sets for ages and not really used them and was inspired to play!  Here is my first attempt using them.

The set I used is Oriental Blossom and the inks are various colours of VersaColour along with Coffee Archival.  The sentiment is a an old wooden Penny Black stamp which is one of my favourite birthday stamps.  I added a little Glamour Dust for sparkle.  I will be using my peg stamps a lot more now, they are definitely addictive!  I need lots more sets too!

I would like to enter this into The Crafting Musketeers challenge which is 'Summertime'.  Please hop over and see the DT fab projects and other entries.

I hope you are having a fab weekend.  Thank you so much for visiting me, I appreciate it so very much!  Take care! Christine xx

Its a Hoot!

Firstly, I would like to apologise for being out of Blogland for which seems like ages!  Its due to mine and my husbands health problems.  Things are a bit difficult so I haven't been crafting hardly at all or paying blog visits.  I am so very sorry!

Here is a card I made a while ago for my Father-in-law's birthday.

The cute owl stamp is Hoot designed by Sam Poole from Creative Expressions and the sentiment is from the same set.  He is stamped in Coffee Archival, embossed with clear powder and coloured with Promarkers.  The bark background is made using a Creative Expressions embossing folder rubbed over with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  The hole is punched out and brown card added behind.  The branches are cut with Spellbinders Cherry Blossom die.  I hand cut the banner, added some brads and Card Candi coloured to match and job done!

Thank you for visiting me.  I can't tell you just how much your support means to me!  Tomorrow I will start visiting as many blogs as I can manage.  Take care and have a good weekend. Christine xxx
