Secret Crafters Last Challenge 204 distressing.

I am sorry to say that this week is the last week of Secret Crafters Saturday Challenges. Wendy is closing her shop and her and Jane have plenty of design team work for Crafters Companion, to keep them busy.
The theme is Distressing. I have used Hero Arts background stamp of clocks. Spellbinders Cogs dies.
Martha Stewart zigzag border punch, I distress inked the background using SU ink on SU card.
The banner is a Wplus9 die. The sentiment is PTi. Craftworkcards candi for the finishing touches. Thats one card for the mens Birthday box sorted.

thank you for all your lovely comments on my cards but please keep your eye on my blog for more cards and projects for Kraftyhands. Things are looking up in that department ;)  Watch this space.

Love

Hero Arts meets Wplus9 Cards


I have been playing with a new style of card which I just love! Backgrounds are hero Arts cling stamps and the fruit and labels are clear stamps and dies from an American company called Wplus9.
I am loving them. I also have some stamps and dies arrived from Papertrey Ink, also from USA. I had to pay customs on both orders but I think it was well worth it to get what I wanted.
So watch this space for more of this style. I am hoping my customers like them too.

thanks for stopping by,

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge 203 Milestone Birthdays

We have Milestone Birthdays this week at Secret Crafter and what better that a 50th card for my dear friend Sonia, who is 50 at the end of the month.
The lovely ladies are 2 stamps that I bought from Rubberknecker at Ally Pally a couple of years ago.
The sentiment is computer generated and has been cut out using my new banner dies from Wplus9 stamps from the USA. I treated myself to a stamp set and some dies, so watch this space for some fruity cards.

We have a sponsor this week, givng the winner, drawn at Random.org, 3 digi stamps of your choice.

Kraftyhands Challenge Ribbon and Lace.

Well its not your usual Ribbon and Lace card but I needed something for a man. So I have made a vintage car card. You can buy this stamp in the kraftyhands http://www.kraftyhandsonline.co.uk/Shop. My uncle has his birthday in September and I think he had a car very similar to this one. Hope he likes it. It will make a change from the golf ones I usually make for him, lol.
Dont forget to check out the other design team members cards on the Kraftyhands blog.
