New Create and Craft TV programmes

I am calling on my agency staff again to share a few cards with you.

I do think there is a bit of improvement at this end and the physio seems to be helping oil the cogs so I hope it won't be too much longer before I can join you all properly.

I have been doing some crafting, just short bursts as and when and have been enjoying playing and creating samples with the latest set of stamps from Sarah at Stamp Addicts. These are the transport set which will be aired live on Create and Craft TV on 21st March at 11am. There is also a new Stamp Addicts programme this Saturday 26th at noon featuring the new fairy stamps, so don't forget to set your record button.

The card above uses the train from the set, there are several more images which I will share with you soon, along with the lovely Stamp Addicts Countryside sets. I stamped the image with versafine sepia and embossed with detail clear, then shaded round the image with TH broken china. The DP is October Afternoon and the frame was cut with Nesties. This is for the following challenges:

Paper Playtime - Technology (trains are on their list)
Paper Sundaes - Masculine colours
Cards for Men - Recipe
Shabby Tearoom - Buttons and bows
Bee Crafty - Tatty or Buttons

My second cards was cut on the Cricut and the scalloped circle a Marianne die. The image is Hero Arts S5049 Flower Wreath and the sentiment and frame Hero Arts CL384 Floral Frames which I coloured with Copics. The butterfly is a Cuttlebug cut and emboss folder using vellum. I only has a small piece of the floral DP............which means Jules that it's a "Snippet" just for you...............which matched really well but as there was not enough for the top section of the card I stamped a white circle with various leaf stamps using TH distress inks mustard seed and sage. This is for the following challenges:

One Stitch at a Time - Anything but square
Pollycraft - Pearls and gems
Incy Wincey - Punches and dies
Oldie but goodie - Spring is in the air
