Magazine Freebie

The stamps used on this card were a freebie from Papercraft Inspirations magazine. I copied the card sample from the magazine almost exactly, but at least I now feel that the purchase has been justified.

A Very Simple.....

Valentine's day card, inspired by one from PTI's blog. The hearts are punched using a SU punch and the sentiment stamp is also SU.

Play Day

Last week, Karen and I decided to have a play day, with the intention of doing a project we had seen in Craft Stamper, using Paper Artsy stamps. Karen's turned out beautifully, but me being me, I didn't like mine, so I painted over it all, before heading home! Finally after a week of 'faffing about', I decided to use SU stamps (with the exception of the LOTV sentiment stamp), coloured with SU markers and SU 'Every Day Enchantment' papers and turn it into a present for Mother's Day. The central picture was heavily inspired by a sample in a SU leaflet.

I decided....

to dust down my craft stuff and make a couple of cards today. The first card is inspired by one from the PTI blog and was made using PTI and SU stamps and SU inks and card.
For the second card,  I used one of the very first stamps I bought, many moons ago, 'DIY Frame' by Funstamps. The sentiment is by SU.
The colours aren't very accurate, due to lack of daylight -  they're much lighter IRL. (Edit: photos now updated)
