These CDs are so easy to use, just print and go.

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge 192 Christmas in June

Secret Crafter

Very poor light today so I may have to wait for some sun to take a better picture.

Anyway, I have used a new Stamp from Indigoblu called Baroque Christmas Tree.
I inked it up with Indigoblu flitter glue, then pressed gilding flakes onto the glued image.
What a mess I made but great fun. I was really please with the outcome.

Look out for this technique on Create and Craft next time Indigoblu are on.

The sentiment is Stampin Up.

I am afraid I have had to give up Stampin Up as I couldn't get enough orders. Never mind, I have a huge stack of stamps to play with in the coming months, even years. ;)

Please join us this week as on offer is a goody bag made up by the lovely Wendy, who is the host of Secret Crafter. thank you Wendy xxxx

Kraftyhands Team Santa

This lovely CD is to be released in July. So easy to use and lovely images to.
Here are my Design Team cards, for a peep at what is in this CD.

The lighting is very poor today, so please forgive the dull appearance of my cards. Editing them in Paintshop pro didn't do any good, so I've just left them as they came out.


Thanks for looking.

Secret crafter Saturday challenge 190 Red,white and Blue.

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge 190,. Red, White and Blue.

Not only have we had the Diamond Jubilee this month, it is Also the Queens Official Birthday.
so I was thinking what does the Queen do on her real Birthday. Maybe a wander on the Beach with an Ice Cream? Well why not.
I hope you like this weeks card. I love making Scenes out of rubber stamp images. The lady is From Funstamps. the shells and seagulls are from a magnetic set of rubber stamps that I have had for years.
I am not sure about the beach huts though.

I have also entered this into Craft a Scene challenge. Sand and water.

Quick Cards

Today I have a couple of Quick cards to show you.
the first one is 2 downloads from Jessica Sprague.
The papers and design elements are from Echo Park, I love their papers. I used Serif Craft Artist
to make my card front. Its so easy to bring in the elements you need and re-size to fit whatever you are making. I finished off with Glamour dust on the edges of the roses.
the second card is using a Rubber Romance Stamp. I love the simplicity of the stamps. not a lot to colour in either. I used my Go Kreate dies to make the tag ( cut in half to make 2 tags) The Sentiment
is from a set of stamps by Paula Pascal.
I hope you like them.
I have another couple of images to colour in. So had better get back to it.
