So having rediscovered my love of all things stamping and inky, you may already know I’m a fan of Dreamees stamps, and this week I’ve been playing very happily with some new stamps of theirs that launch at 1pm on Tuesday 22nd July. My hands are covered in distress ink and my desk is an absolute tip but I’m having a whale of a time! Thank you to Carol and Haykey for letting me play 🙂
Here are my projects so far, more to follow (well it’s raining and I’m not going anywhere so I may as well craft!)
This frame was part of the set of three that I blogged about altering a while ago. I realised that the gorgeous Christmas tree stamp would fit it beautifully so I got going with this one. The snowflakes are from Tattered Lace and cut from the same papers that the frame is decorated with, they are from the CD that launches on the show with the stamps, inked and then heat embossed with clear ultra fine embossing powder.
Next is a card that I made which uses simple stamping techniques onto Kraft card with the new set of baubles, so built the design using the stamps and espresso memento ink and coloured with promarkers before highlighting with gold glitter and adding a sentiment from the CD which I inked with distress ink.
And finally for now, here is a notepad that I’ve altered, no stamping on this one! Ok, so the notepad was, again, very inexpensive – a set of three for £1 and so I covered it with papers from the cd that I cut to size and then inked with Peeled Paint distress ink, added a sentiment and round stamp from the cd and then added my own little list of what’s going on the notepad to get organised for Christmas!
