Crafty Sentiments

Hi, Kerry here with a quick inspiration for Crafty Sentiments stamps that you can get in Lisa's shop and the link to that section is Crafty Sentiments.  If there ever is a stamp that you can't see on the website than just get in contact with Lisa and she will order it for you, also have a look on our facebook page as Lisa puts deals up daily and wow my shopping bag gets fuller each day lol.

I finished this late last night and it sort of got into a rush, now Clarity stamps have great sentiments, but I thought I had picked the friendship one not the lovey duvey one lol, also I made a huge smudge on her face, but I thought why not we all make mistakes so I still decided to show you all.
Hope you all have a fantastic crafty weekend, thanks for visiting. Kerry xxx

Steampunk Style

Hi all, Kerry here with a bit of steampunk inspiration.  I was inspired by an article in the May Craft Stamper magazine and really had to have a go for my Dad's birthday.  I used lots of stamps from Paperartsy, Chocolate Baroque, Creative Expressions, Indigo Blu and Stampers anonymous, you will find all you need in  Lisa's shop and if you can't find what you need then give her a call or pop on facebook and she will order it for you. Also she is having lots of new stamps delivered this week, so keep a lookout :-)

Don't forget our challenge blog current challenge is Everything Green so why not pop along and have a go :-)
Hope you all have a fantastic crafty week. Kerry x

What a Cutie

Hi everyone a little over a week ago now i was asked to become a member of the fab DT at That Craft Place and i've been like a bottle of pop ever since, and i'd like to thank all of the lovely ladies there for making me feel so welcome.

This is a card that i've made using a scrummy stamp from Elisabeth Bell's Sweet Pea range which are available from That Craft Place along with the gorgeous papers, ribbons and silver charm.

to colour I used promarkers and flexmarkers, I have also used wooden hearts that I've glittered using ranger stickles and the gems and lace were from my own little crafty stash.

The flowers I used were mulberry roses, rose buds and asters and the sentiment was one from my little (or not so little lol) craft box and I've distressed it with distress ink pads and a blending tool.

                                                                          Huge Hugs

Another take on this week's challenge

Hi all, Anda here one of your new DT's for the That Craft Place challenge blog.

We've got a sketch challenge this week and I thought that I would post a take on it from me.

The sketch looks like this:

I don't know about you, but I find sketch challenges difficult as I'm more of a "fly by the seat of your pants" crafter!  Essentially I'm not very disciplined, so this has been fun for me to try.  My take on it is below:

I used the Prima Almanac paper as my backing which I think gives it a pretty vintage feel.  Instead of using a second paper, I used a die from Memory Box instead.  The ticket is from Whimsy stamps (available from the shop directly) which I distressed with Antique Linen ink and the Candi is from my stash.  The image is a digital one from Mayzyart coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers.

Don't forget that we're sponsored by Crafter's Companion this fortnight on the challenge blog, so pop over and enter your creation for a chance to win a brilliant prize!

Paperartsy ATC's

Hi all, Kerry here, sorry for not being around, I have been away and you know what it's like when you get back, you seem to become behind with everything lol.  Just before I went away I did some ATC's for a swap, I decided to get really inky and have a go at masking which I really enjoyed.  I used Crafters Companion Stick and Spray to help me stick the masks and it really worked very well, I sprayed all my masks at once and was able to keep using them, also because the mask is stuck completely down you get no ink seepage which was brill, Lisa has them in stock so click on the link above and be whisked over to the shop on the right page by magic lol, isn't the internet amazing.  I have to admit I'm now rather addicted to ATC's and Masking, so I have a feeling I shall be doing alot more.

The stamps I used are Paperartsy Squiggly mini 18 and Paperartsy Bricks and Mortar 2 which are both in stock but there is only 1 left of the Bricks and Mortar 2. I really found these stamps easy to use, easy to cut out for masking and lots of different ways to use them, they also lend themselves to being bright and funky or soft and pastel, they also can be coloured with any medium and still look stunning.

I also used these stamps for my DT piece over on our Challenge Blog, the challenge until 23rd June is a sketch and I made an acetate card with a tag in bright colours showing the stamps above.  Why don't you pop along and have a look at all the DT's inspiration and join in :-).  Thanks for visiting :-) Kerry xxx
