Typing a note to say ... "Miss You" ...

I was a very lucky person and had two of my cards featured in Craft Stamper Magazine (February 2017 issue) which came out on 6th January 2017. I was asked by Nikky Hall of Polkadoodles to create the projects using 3 of her clear stamps sets: 'Oceania', 'Wish You Were Here' and 'Absolute Vintage'.

If you haven't got the magazine here is a little peek showing my cards ...

I have already shared one of my projects, 'Just Shooting the Breeze' HERE and am here is my second project ...

Using the mini postcards from the  'Wish You Were Here' stamp set and masks, I created my background using pumice stone and picked raspberry distress inks. I then over stamped with one of the butterfly images, (from 'Absolute Vintage') in picked raspberry.


I created another background using the same techniques to act as my mat and layer for the main focal piece ... the typewriter. I have stamped this twice so that I could create a raised image and also have some where to stick my typed message

Using the corners from the Ribbon/Gift Frame dies, I added these to my toppers to draw your eye in to the main focal point: my typewriter and the message.

I also added some extra die cut flowers, (Super Sprigs die) and stamped butterflies. I was also a very lucky bunny and had SEVEN more cards publisged in Papercraft Essentials, again using the wonderful PolkaDoodle products ... happy dance ...

Right back down to earth and off to do some household chores which have been neglected this week and I can nolonger find reasonable excuses not to do them. Have a great day everyone,
