Hi guys! Hope everyone is well and that those in the UK had a good bank holiday weekend! The weather was a bit rubbish though wasn't it?! Just below this post I've announced the winner of my Sweet Pea Stamp candy giveaway so be sure to check if its you! If you didn't win you'll have another chance in a couple of days, so keep you're eyes peeled!
When I cut back on some of my Design Team work a couple of months ago the main reason was to be able to create all the new things I had running around in my head but with DT committments just didn't have time-this card is another one of these-along with all the Alice in Wonderland projects and postcards I've been posting recently. Now I'm never gonna put down my copics but I love creating things in this vintage/distressed style, and who doesn't love playing around and trying new things! I've also had a bit more time to work on my etsy shop which I've wanted to do for ages rather than just letting it sit there, especially since any extra pennies are really helpful when you're a stay at home mummy:)
Anyways I already have a few great vintage fashion type stamps but not a collection and recently while channel hopping I saw on Create and Craft that Creative Expressions were launching some new stamps and these were them! I actually didn't buy them from there-got em cheaper somewhere else:) All the patchwork style squares have been stamped in memento rich cocoa (think that's what it's called?!), distressed with ink then distressed with my tim holtz tool and stitched onto scraps of brown cardstock. This design is a great way of using up all your scrap bits of card! I just love the sentiment in the centre!
I'm going to enter this into a few challenges: Crafty Cardmakers (distressing), Stampavie and More (distressing), Totally gorjuss (stitching).
For those that may be interested this card has been listed to purchase here:
Come back tomorrow as I'll be posting twice-yep-twice and find out what's happening! Thanks for popping by and for any comments you leave-I truly appreciate each and every one and I'm sorry for being a bad commenter at the minute!
