New Stamp

Good evening.

When you get new stash do you just have to use it straight away? I know I do.


I made this card using a stamp I bought while I was at the new Sir Stampalot shop on Saturday (Magenta 41017k).

I stamped the image with Versafine ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then sponged inks over the top of the image to create the background colour.

I also bought some UTEE on saturday and can't wait to have a play with it, I love the "cracked glass" look so I will be hunting out some tutorials to give that a go.

Happy crafting to you all and thank you for visiting.

Hi Clare, I think new stash inspires use to make something straight away, I think as soon as you see what you like you imagine what you want to do with it....I love the hero arts new stamps, just hope I spy them at the NEC...I really want the dandelion frame.

I love your card, the colours are beautiful, I can picture being in that field looking up at the beautiful sunset!!!

Beautiful!!!
