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.
