Wednesday Stamper - Umbrella

The theme at Wednesday Stamper this week is umbrella, and not having an appropriate stamp, I decided to go with an Oriental design! I used a piece of gorgeous Yuzen paper for the background and embellished the card with ribbon, Collections words, a Chinese coin and a bright cocktail parasol. Stamp by Paper Artsy.

Here's a birthday card I made earlier this week. I've used some of my all-time favourite Hero Arts stamps! FYI - the images are stamped on cream card, coloured with good quality pencils, cut out with a circle punch and then glued to poker chips. The patterned paper is by K&Company and the alphabet stickers are Deluxe Designs. Finally, I added a few rhinestones for a bit of glitter!

Wednesday Stamper - Toys

The new Wednesday Stamper theme is toys, and not having any toy stamps, I had to improvise. Again, lol. I used a Collections shipping tag (obsessed with these!), Sandylion patterned paper, Blue Cardigan collage image, Tim Holtz Distressables toy blocks, a red bead, large copper eyelet, buttons and ribbon. Stamps by Laughing Moon and Collections.

Somerset Studio Gallery Winter 2008

Please bear with me while I do a big 'ol happy dance, LOL! I received my copy of the Winter 08 issue of Somerset Studio Gallery in the mail today, and there on the cover (top right-hand corner) was my "Bird Watching" card! The scans below are not great, they don't show the detail on the card, but I just had to share my good news (and excitement!) with you all. *Squeal*
