Craft Stamper ATC

This ATC is based on a card project I recently had featured in Craft Stamper magazine (February 2008 issue). The background is made using a piece of black card with glue applied all over. On top of this I placed a piece of white tissue paper and scrunched it before pressing it down. It was then inked using black Stazon. The stamp is one of my favourites. The brads are from Papermania.


The background papers are some I have had for ages and haven't really wanted to use. They are by Tim Holtz. This stamp is from Putting on the Ritz and was inked with Stazon.

Vintage Swimmers

The stamp is from Inkadinkadoo and has been inked using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink Pad. The flower is by Prima and the background pattern is from a Cuttlebug embossing folder highlighted with Distress Ink.

Nana 70

I made this card for my boys to send to their Nana for her 70th birthday. I have to admit I stole the idea from my card swapping buddy, Susan. The bags and shoes are by Hero Arts and stamped onto acetate. The pink card underneath the images has silver ink applied randomly with a baby wipe. The various brads are from Papermania and Dovecraft.

Mum is 70

My mum was 70 earlier this month - she doesn't look it though. I made this card using DCWV Pocket Full of Posies papers. The vase stamp is from a recent Hobbycraft sale and cost me 29p! The flowers are the gorgeous Primas. The swirly stamp is from Inkadinkadoo and I embellished it with flower brads from Lakeland.


Made this card for a friend of my husband who just became an auntie to twin boys. The letters are cut using Quickutz' Phoebe alpha. I used various papers, the blue embossed one is by K & Co (I think).
