Swirls and stamping

This is a very simple card using a background card from the Kanban Gentleman's Journal kit that already has gold foiled swirls on it. I stamped a few of the Indigo Blu stamps from the 'take the time' set, using memento rich cocoa - it didn't stamp too clearly on this card, but I rather like the slightly 'old' look that it's produced. As there is a lot of gold foiling on this card it's one of those that's difficult to photograph.

Vintage Christmas

Yesterday was Rudolph day on Stamping for pleasure (it's Rudlph day on the 25th day of each month) and this time we were asked to produce six cards or other festive items.

It so happened that my Hunkydory kit from C & C arrived yesterday afternoon - I bought this so that I could make some quick cards for my Tearfund sale - so I decided to make six cards using some of the Vintage Christmas collection.

Simply stamped ATC

When I was in Eastbourne recently I bought quite a few new stamps, so I thought it was about time I used one of the Indigo Blu set 'take the time'. I've made a monochrome brown ATC, simply inking with memento rich cocoa. I added some glossy accents to the front of the watch to make it look like glass and added a few buttons for dimension. Edges were inked with a copic.


This is for:
