And Finally – Fun card using Stampotique stamps

This stamp is called “The Crafter” so of course I had to have it.

The Crafter Card

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.

 

 

Another Fun Card with stamp from Stampotique

I couldn’t resist using this sentiment and stamp together.

Bag of idiots card

 

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.

Happy Crafting.

Some fun(ny) cards

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.

Rainbow sprinkle card

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:

Dinner is poured

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.
