A Make from my Charity Craft Day

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope that you are having a good weekend. The weather hasn't been too kind down here and our fence has suffered. We had a nice time with my parents,we got the shopping we needed for holiday done and we saw the new Dad's Army film. Not too bad for a Saturday.

The previous Saturday I went to a charity craft day. I was very pleased with the stamps I came home with and the projects I completed. One of them I liked a lot but I just felt that it needed a little bit more.


The middle of the card is what we made at the craft day. I just wanted to use it to make a bigger card. All the stamps I used came in the Birthday Blooms set that we were given in our goody bag when we arrived. In fact all eight of the projects for the day used the same set which was just brilliant for inspiration. What I added was some matting and layering. I also added a wider black mat and I stamped the smaller flower stamp with Perfect Medium and heat embossed it with a fine detail white powder. I do like heat embossing to create backgrounds. 


This is of  the sentiments that comes with the set. 


These little flowers are so pretty they were stamped in black and coloured with water based pens. 


These are the stamps I came home with I was well chuffed. I have used the large flower stamp twice since last weekend it is  very pretty. 


I hope that you enjoy the rest of Sunday and the week ahead. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

  12. Jackie, your new stamps are wonderful! I like the added background. Like you, I prefer larger cards and frequently change small "class" cards in similar manner. The black and white is sticking and elegant. It's a beautiful card!
