Stamp Something Inspiration

Oops, sorry, got to apologise yet again for not being around. However, have been so busy sorting out matters in my personal life, that I just didn't have the time or inclination to make anything. However, have managed to give myself a kick up the backside and got back to working with the rest of the DT on Stamp Something.


This week's challenge is set by Melissa and is an inspiration challenge. This is the picture you have to take your ideas from......



......and this is my interpretation of it......






I'm ashamed to say I've had this stamp for years and have never used it before!! It's from Stamps Happen and called "If men could read". I've coloured her with Promarkers and added some doodling around the edges before matting it onto some SU Real Red c.s. Used the SU corner rounder punch to make the scalloped edge. Papers are from Pink Petticoat Lola's Boudoir collection and ribbon is from Doodlebug. Not sure about the oversized brads but think they could be Dovecraft, although don't hold me to that!!

Pop on over to the Stamp Something blog and take a look at all the wonderful creations the other talented girls have made.

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.



Birthday Wreath Card

Saw this design on one of AMD TV shows and fell in love with it immediately so set about making two different projects with the same design.
This is the first...


...a birthday card for a friend of mine.  I haven't quite finished the other project so I will show that another day.
