Flying your way soon....

Hello ! I love it when I create new stamps, and the designs are made into rubber! Finally flat drawings are 3D and these little beauties from Neil Walker and Katy Leitch are no exception!
There are 6 new designs from Katy and 8 from Neil, all very versatile.
Just to tease you here is a little tag I made with 2 of the designs, using the new Archival inkpads from Wendy Vecchi, and Dylusions sprays on Dyan's very versatile blank inkpad.

The new stamps will be available from Friday 2nd May, and if you are popping by the shop, then you can see them in the flesh!
Pop back tomorrow for another sneak peek :)
Have a creative day

It's a card!!

I am renowned for never making cards! They just don't come into my remit for creating, but occasionally, I will create one. Often I will have an idea and the whole thing turns out completely different. On this occasion, I made one for the class I taught, and another one in the class, which I preferred!
 I used The Crafter's Workshop stencil for the background, Tim's Tattered Floral die, and one of The Artistic Stamper butterflies stamped onto craft plastic and attached to a curly wire to create it. Lots of Distress Paint, and a little Texture Paste mixed with Distress Paint,  through a stencil for the words.
This was the card I made and gave to my mum for Mothering Sunday! I think she liked it! Lol

Have a card making day!! I am off to make a wedding card!

Graphic 45 workshop at THe Artistic Stamper

On Saturday I taught a class that I did at CHA with Graphic 45. I love the engineering that goes into Graphic 45's workshops, and this one was no exception! Originally I did the class in the USA with the Couture Papers, but decided to teach this class with Botanical Tea, and extra papers from Secret Garden.

I loved that everyone's book was so different. I forgot to take pictures of my finished book from the outside, so must do that!! Here are Val's and Rosemary's so different books, and oh even better I love that I always learn something new at every class I teach!! This time, it was what happens when you heat different ribbons! check out the wrinkled effect on Val's book ribbon! Amazing!


If you fancy taking a class with me or anyone of our tutors, please check out our workshop page .
Have a very creative day
