This stamp is called “The Crafter” so of course I had to have it.
I can see more possibilities with this character. The bottles and tins etc are a separate Stampotique stamp but I think they work well together.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this series of ‘fun’ cards as much as I have.
Happy Crafting until next time.
I couldn’t resist using this sentiment and stamp together.
I created the look of a bag by joining some of the lines on the outside of the stamp with a micron pen.
Then using a fairly hefty CTMH twine and my 1/16″ hole punch I threaded a ‘make believe’ closure to the top. I coloured the bag and critters with colouring pencils and used some Washi Tape to create the background. Black Cardstock base and designer paper (retired) is from Stampin’ UP! I also added two small metal heart and lock embellishments to the ends of the twine.
Hope you enjoy this one.
I’ve had in my stash for some time a Stampotique stamp that my husband picked up on one of our trips to a large craft store. I liked it too, but it wasn’t really my thing at the time, or so I thought. Also in my stash was a collection of Dyan Reaveley sayings that I thought were amusing and not too nasty as some of these can be. So I decided to combine the characters with the sayings. Here is my first card with the stamp my husband chose.
I really like this little stamp and I think the words are perfect for her don’t you?
Having now added a few more Stampotique’s to my collection I decided to make a series of cards using the same techniques and matching the sayings to the image.
The next card I made:
Another cute Stampotique character. I extended her skirt and gave her a glass of pink champagne too. The floor is an Art Deco panel die, from Ultimate Crafts.
I’ll share another of the cards in this series in a day or two.
