Playing with flourishes


Sorry to everyone who keeps popping over and seeing there hasnt been a posting for while. I have had a few problems with my back and havent really been very inspired to do much at all of late. Anyway enough of that, I have been playing with my new set of stamps. STAMPS? I hear you say. It is true I am not really a stamper and havent stamped for at least 5 years. When, from memory it was only anitas stamps that were readily available. But I have been browsing the net and of course asking my blog buddie, Terrie B and just love the autumn leaves flourishes and swirls. They are more me, so without further ado I gave them a try. All this acrylic stamping is so much easier than guessing where your image may turn out. I have a long way to go before I am a pro, but I enjoyed it anyway - Oh yeah except for running off to the sink every 5 minutes to clean them. Perhaps my next mission in life will be "the self cleaning clear stamp". I also had a play with these new hydrangea blooms that I now have in stock. (A pack of 60 is just £1.65). Who know I may even jump on the Tilda bandwagon next....
So I made these for mum, as her card box is getting a little empty and without a doubt, they are definately her cup of tea.




Thanks for looking, supplies are: Brads, eyelets and blooms - Poppicrafts. Papers - Pink petticoat and basic grey. Ribbon - ribbon oasis.
Oh yeah, nearly forgot - later this week there will be another Poppicrafts competition with more candy to win.

So glad you are back -no pun intended. Having just found you it was a shock to find you'd disappeared, but assumed you'd had an upset of sort. Hope you are truly better now! Popping off to the shop now to catch some of those blooms. Beautiful!
