In Stitches...

...Did you see it? I very nearly missed it cos Mr Virgin has removed Create & Craft from our TV listing...so I had to look at T'internet to see them...but...one of the Stitchels set of designs I did last year were on there...with some Sakura pens...which I haven't got enough of...but then again, I do have enough other stuff...so do I need them too??? Anyways...I spent last Thursday making some cards ready for the Sunday TV show...sent them off Special Delivery...and lo! They didn't get there in time...grrrr...what am I waffling on about??? If you fancy a little looksee at my Stitchels stamp designs if you click HERE you will be transported, as if by magic, to The Artistic Stamper :O)) Anyways, here is one of the cards I made;




Using a combo of Basic Grey papers, Martha Stewart punches and a Penny Black sentiment, I stamped up loads of the Stitchels flowers and cut them out, 3D'd them onto the card and added a couple of Maya Road pins behind them....voila! The little pearl centres are those fabby Prima E-Line packs...really good value and they are lush looking too! Another quicky post from me ...my flipping back is giving me some right jip :O(( so I am away for an early night and hopefully when I wake up the pain will be more bearable...not long til the MRI scan results. Until later, thanks for looking....au revoir, adios & ciao...see, betcha never knew I was multi-ligual :O)) *ah the powers of Mr Google ROFL*

I saw them Hels, right before my OH came in a claimed the hand control and ...... of course switched over to footie.

He reckons I can watch my programmes in the week when he's at work so Sunday the control belongs to him, Huh! I off to follow the link you gave us now.

I hope you're tucked up all comfy in bed by now and wake up feeling much, much better.

BTW The card is lovely. I love to stamp, cut out and layer up flowers in this way.

Hi de hi - I saw the stamps - and was dead impressed that I have actually spoken to a famous person - lol. Mind you did wonder because the show was focused on the pens. You should ask for another show - just for your stamps. Love that sample card by the way ,,,,

I love the distressed look of this soft pink and the green you have combined it with. The overstamping onto your flowers is fab too. Really adds something. Blinking mail. Special Delivery should have got there no probs. Sorry to hear about your back playing up again. Poor you!

Hi Hels, love the card, the colours are great. I didn't know that you had designed those stamps, I'm impressed! I have a set for making the grungepaper flowers of course, but will have to investigate further now. Judith x
