Fat Book pages for CSF October 3x3 swap

I have really enjoyed crafting these 3 Fat Book pages for a swap I am in on CSF. The stamps are from SSP Guild 1 & 2 mags. I have used the stamps as background stamps and also stamped part of the image onto stampboard. I have stamped the main image onto another piece of card using Versamark ink and spritzing with Gold Shimmer spray. I used Tim Holtz Distress inks which give a lovely finish. Thanks for looking.

Christmas stamp - Creative Expressions

These are two cards made using the christmas stamp, which was my first purchase at Ally Pally - I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. I love the simplicity of the cards, one I embossed in silver and the other in gold, mounted onto corresponding mirri card and finished with a star brad. Thanks for looking.

Graphicus Guild stamp

This is another first use of a stamp - Graphicus Guild tree stamp. I inked the stamp using Versamark and embossed in silver onto dark blue card. I then mounted onto gold mirri card, painted the ground and hill using Stargazer water colours - these are so shimmery, not sure it comes across on the pic. I stamped and embossed the leaf with gold powder onto brown card and then stamped the acorns and Fruitfulness banner onto gold mirri card with Versafine and embossed with clear powder, these were attached to the card with foam pads. I am sure I shall get some 'mileage' from this lovely stamp. Thanks for looking.

Dragonfly Dreams stamps - SSP Guild

This is my first card using the Dragonfly Dreams stamps from SSP Guild - I didn't have all the colours which were given as examples on the Guild page but I was so impatient to use the stamps that I decided to improvise...and I am quite pleased with the result. A simple but pretty card I think. Thanks for looking.

Birthday Fat Book page and cards for Craft Swap Forum friends

I haven't had much time for blogging for a few days but these are a couple of birthday cards and Fat Book page for friends on Craft Swap Forum. I have also made a couple of Halloween cards for a Trick/Treat swap on CSF - I can't post at the moment though as I don't want to spoil the surprise or shock - as the case might be ! Thanks for looking.
