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

Oh my! Beautiful card. This reminds me that I have a box of peg stamps by Rubber Stamp Tapestry that work like these. I need to pull those out again sometime.

The soft colours in your wreath are very pretty. I never think of doing wreaths apart from Christmas but your Summer time one is lovely.

Hi Chris,

I don't know what a peg stamp is.... please explain. Or, maybe not. I don't need to find anything new!

The card is very pretty. I can see why the sentiment stamp is one of your favorites. I love the font.

Oh, gotta go check out your owl card!

Hugs,
Kay
