I also used the laminated butterfly stamp set from www.stampsbyme.co.uk 



I first drew a black line down the left and right side of the card blank to create 2 panels

I masked them off and stamped the Trellis background in both.

I then stamped the Rose Trellis over the top.

The roses are leaves were coloured in with Kuretake clean colour pens 

The sentiments were stamped in the centre panel using Versafine ink..but the Mum was inked using the same pink kuretake pen as the roses.

Stamps By Me Ltd Amazing Daisy and All Things Grow With Love stamp sets

Good morning crafters.
Wishing all the mums out there a very happy Mothers Day. Thoughts are with those no longer with us xx

I wanted to share a card I made using the following stamp sets
Amazing Daisy
All Things Grow With Love
Available from www.stampsbyme.co.uk

I stamped the two outline stamp sets randomly in versafine smoky gray ink,  over the top of the card blank, to appear as though they were coming down the page.

I then took the solid portions of the stamp sets, used kuretake pens straight on the stamps, spritzed with water and stamped them over the outlines. I did this several times to add variation and depth to the colours

The sentiment was stamped in the versafine to finish.

I hopeyou like it and thankyou for stopping by

The sentiment was stamped in black versafine and then I matted this onto the card blank with foam pads

Finished work and having a much needed cuppa lol.

Honey Doo Crafts Lovely Lily stamp set

Morning crafters.

Hoping you're all well.
Here is my final sample for the new stamps sets released by www.honeydoocrafts.co.uk 

This is using one of my favourites,  the Lovely Lily stamp set. I've also used another two new stamp sets, Music Notes and Mum sentiment stamp.


I cut a white card panel to fit on a card blank and then cut another shaped piece of card that will sit above the panel.

I used a mask to create a moon with distress inks, that would peep out from under the shaped card once assembled.

On the shaped panel I randomly stamped the music notes in lilac ink and distressed the edge on the same colour.

The Lily stamp was then stamped onto the main card panel using Kuretake clean colour pens to colour in.

The sentiment, from the Mum stamp set, was stamped and matted onto lilac card.

The sample was then assembled using wet glue and foam pads to add depth.

A few pearls finished it off.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing all my samples for the new stamps from Honey Doo Crafts.  I've had so much fun playing

I splattered white ink on some black card before adhering it to card blank.

The daisy was stamped and embossed twice onto white card and coloured in with Kuretake clean colour pens. I cut up one of the daisy displays into seperate flowers.

I cut out a circle from orange card and attached it to the black card then added the complete daisy display with foam pads. The seperate daisies were then added around the display to add more depth.

Gems and sequins were added to complete.

Stamps By Me Ltd All Things Grow With Love stamp set

Morning crafters.

Sharing my last DT sample for the new stamps launched by www.stampsbyme.co.uk

This is from the All Things Grow With Love stamp set.

I first positioned where I wanted the scallop frame to go and then stamped the flower heads in grey versafine ink.

I inked the frame with distress inks then tacked it in place so I could stamp the main flower image in black versafine, ensuring it overlapped slightly onto frame.

I temporarily removed frame so I could colour in the flower with Kuretake clean colour pens. The sentiment was stamped with versafine black ink

The frame was then attached using foam pads before matting the card onto pink card. This was then adhered to the card blank. 

The gems were added to complete this sample.

Thankyou for stopping by and leaving comments. I read them all.
