Stamping with Fun

Happy Monday Everyone hope all of you lucky girls who went to Ally Pally at the weekend had a fabulous time and picked up loads of stamping goodies.

This week on
Stamping with fun we have a fabulous sketch from our guest designer the lovely and talented Marlene, it is a fabulous sketch, (I am having a field day with sketches this week as they all have lots of layers which I love), and Marlene has made the most stunning card for us using her sketch. My Fellow DT, as always, have also come up with some truly stunning creations, why not come and join us.

I have had these lovely Miss Anya stamps for ages and have only inked up one, after seeing Rach's fab creations with them it spurred me on to get them out and inked. I have played around with the sketch but the basic elements are still there. This time I started with the papers and then chose my copic colours normally I do it the other way around and spend ages looking for matching papers, I will certainly choose the papers first from now on, it is so much easier.

Went really over the top this time on the inside of my card, I have used another of the cute stamps and used up the scrap paper from the front

Oh Jacqui, how adorable. I love the colours, so fresh and summery.

I can't find those stamps anywhere...they always seem to be out of stock.

A good tip choosing the papers first, I normally do it the other way around, and like you, take ages trying to match up papers. I'll try this method in future.

Hugs Debbie xx
