Playing with my Tree Stamp


Another beautiful day in Somerset, the sun is shinning and its warm. I do hope this lasts for a few more weeks, or even the whole summer, well most of it, after the last few years it would be lovely to have a real summer. It is the type of day that makes you feel alive.

Another day when I can't upload anything onto my gallery which is really annoying me and the moderator got my feelings yesterday, today things are no better as now I have a picture of glitter saying there is bug in the system. I know what the bug is, a total cock up that Do crafts have created, never mind today I am bring you a card that I played with. I am still waiting for the moderator to reply, but after what I said he might even throw me out.

I don't do a lot of stamping, I am really not a stamper although I brought this tree stamp at the show (Bath and west showground at Shepton Mallet last year) so far I have used it for Christmas cards but I saw in the Papercraft Inspirations April issue, a stamp picture with a tree. I never thought I would be able to do it, and after a play these are the results.

The blue ink at the top of the page and then going into violetand then green I don't have many inks so I was limited. Then I used the tree stamp Penny Black 3880K Fantasy stamping first in violet and then in black in the front. and this is a close up.

I mounted it on blue shinny card and then onto a blank white card with gold peel offs in the corners and gold peel off Happy birthday. Plus some blue ribbon down the side and tried with a small bow, which I found in the craft shop at Millets Garden Centre near Abingdon, when we were there over Easter.

I was very happy with my efforts and for my first effort I was so pleased I used it to make this birthday card.

This weekend the show is back at the Bath and West showground, so I will be going over the weekend and looking forward to seeing new things and new ideas.

I hope your are enjoying the lovely weather where ever you are and thank you for visiting my blog today, any comments you wish to leave will be appreciated.

Happy Crafting
Hugs Margaret
