New stamps, new TV show


Good Morning peeps, hope everyone is OK.

I have a quick share of a couple of the cards I made using the new Stamp Addicts Floral stamp sheets which will be previewed on Create and Craft on 9th March at 1pm, so don't forget to pop the date in your dairy.

The top one is fairly simple, I masked a panel across the card and repeat stamped the agapanthus flower using Hero chalk ink soft apricot, then the main flower twice using Adirondack eggplant and the same Hero ink, cut out and decoupaged, some cord and leaves cut from a Sellbinder die and finito.


For the second card I inked a piece of Fabriano watercolour card with TH distress inks worn lipstick, shabby shutters and broken china and spritzed with Glimmer Mist iridescent gold. I then stamped several of floral stamps with Archival black and gold embossed one or two along with a moon using  from Dottiness stamp sheet, cut the piece into six and mounted onto gold linen cardstock.

Thanks for popping in and whatever you have planned, have a good day.

  18. They are both superbly effective & I love your mosaic technique in the second one. The first one really shows how one stamp can be used so effectively to create a coherent whole. I sat looking at these & just marvelled at how different the look of the each is.
