Craft Stamper Project

I just had to do this project, designed by Jean Hardy, that was in March's Craft Stamper magazine. Apart from the paper choices, mine is virtually a direct copy, so I can't take any credit for the design, but I loved it so much I thought I'd show you. The frame is made from chipboard, coated in modelling paste and then painted and inked with VersaMagic inks. The heart and rosette are made from clay and the rest of the embellishments are chipboard, which has been painted and foiled. The chipboard shapes, papers and stamps are from Crafty Individuals.
I also thought I'd show you my Mum's Mother's day card (hopefully she's not looking), which has been made using an "Elegant Step Card' from Whichcrafts. The stamps are from LOTV and have been coloured with Copics; the papers are Papermania; the fence die is Magnolia; the flower is a Dienamics die and the butterfly and leaves are Martha Stewart punches.

Sarah's Cards Retreat

Just returned from a fab weekend away at the Sarah's Cards Retreat. Nothing better than spending a whole weekend with fellow crafters!
Four out of the six LOs we did are shown below - I still need to finish the others.
