Stamping for fun ...

Hi Everybody,

Sunday was Formula One day and so while Griff was watching that I was up in the craftroom playing with stamps.

I don't profess to be a stamper and I am not very good at it.

But this was the effort I produced with some Sheena Douglass stamps I have had for quite some time and have never used ... shame on me !!

They are from some of her Little Bit Sketchy Collections  and they are quite big

The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed first and the background added after. I stamped the big flowers and colored them with Distress Inks and inked the edges

Then I fussy cut them out and  added glaze to the top to make them shine and once dry I have layered them up.

Ribbon was wrapped around the top and the whole panel was matted onto some deep rose pink card.  The base card is matted and layered with some patterned paper onto more of the rose card.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  20. Good morning Christina, the card is beautiful, I used to do a lot of stamping, but tend to use the dies more now, though stamping and colouring is very theraputic. It is a lovely card thank you for sharing with us xx

  21. I love stamping, and your card is lovely! I like to stamp and then use the dies to cut the shape out, but fussy cuts are so beautiful. Thank you.

  24. Good Morning Christina :) "Not very good at it". Seriously! I think you have a Blog full of followers who would beg to differ! This stamped card that you've created is gorgeous! I love it!! You've stamped it and put your "Christina Touch" to it and made it beautiful. And I always love it when you try something a little out of your comfort zone. When you grow from it, so do we! I would love to see some more stamped cards and perhaps a video. Thank you sooooo much for sharing this card and technique today; and for all you do for us. Enjoy a beautiful day. Big Hugs.

  34. Hi. Christina, well you have done a great job on this card Christina, the stamping is first class, I love stamping and have so many of them but never have been very good at it, I'll give it another try and hope it will be half as good as yours. The card is beautiful.

  38. I really LOVE this card Christina, so very pretty and so different from the kind you usually make! The colours a fab and I love that idea of glazing the flower sections before layering them up, brilliant and an idea that I shall be using on my next card with hand made flowers! TFS!

  39. Oh dear, my Granddaughter hit the enter key before I finished my message .... so sorry about that! I was going to say, I also have quite a lot of Sheena Douglass stamps that I have yet to use, and I have had them for ages! So now, perhaps I shall actually get around to using some soon! lol!
