Damask Floral Stamps

Hello! Thought I would have a play with these Damask floral stamps I got while I was in Amsterdam. I think they look a bit 60's! a bit Biba maybe! Anyway I think they turned our ok.

I love the look of the H2o's and I think that the white embossing worked ok too. I really like this stamp, looks like I will be using it a lot! I also made this quick card using some of the Laura Ashley papers, plus on of the lovely tags from Craftwork Cards.

Just got things strewned around the desk trying to get something together with the die cuts & ribbons I got too on while away, hopefully I will have something to show tomorrow. Got more or less a free couple of days this week so that's a nice change. Okay of to make some lunch & a pot of tea for that added extra inspiration!! Hope your all well and if any of you who read this in the USA went to CHA, I hope I am going to see lots of photos of the products on your blogs we might get them over here eventually! Take care all of you!

Bright Blessings!

Well its been a few busy ol days round my house! I have been sorting out a few things for the weekend as my partner and I are off to Amsterdam , continuing my Birthday Treats! I have been before and I love the place the People the sights and the shopping! :-) I have found a couple of craft shops I want to visit, of course! Maybe I will do what I did last year when I visited Monaco, I did not go for tourist souvenirs, oh no not me! I found a craft shop in a little back street & bought Christmas stamps!! Anyhow hoping to see some craft goodies we don't get here. I know that most peel offs are made by Dutch company's so maybe I will track some of them down. We fly on Friday and return Monday. I will put some pic's on here if I take any good ones.

Meanwhile, I thought I would show you a little something I did the other day. The first on is a little Thank you card using on of the Laura Ashley Stamps I got in the set, its a thank you card for my Aunt. She made me a beautiful card for my birthday! So I want to says Thanks!

The Next one I did was using the HOTP kit I bought recently. There are so many great colours of paper & embellishments in this kit I honestly cant recommend it enough. I love the muted tones!

I have just set my box to record a double dose of craft making on QVC today as its Dawn Bibby doing some creative stamping! There are shows everyday this week. I must NOT buy anything else though......... well not yet anyway my credit card company will be on the phone!!!! Oh but I did buy some Laura Ashley stuff in the sale from Craftwork Cards in Leeds. I couldn't resist as it was all such a bargain. I went for the Traditional Range of papers & embellishments & ribbons to go with the stamps I got for my birthday, I will do something with them all soon as I am back from my weekend away! Well have a good rest of the week folks & Happy 4th July to anyone from the USA who reads this! I will see you when I am back next week! Now go make something crafty!!!!!

Bright Blessings!
