Rubber Stamp Sale

Well moving out is getting closer, having to make a dramatic downsize of my crafting goodness as I will not have the space in my own home that I have at my mom's house so I am adding loads of rubber stamps to my Stash Sale Blog. If you like Magnolia, Sarah Kay and whiff of joy stamps keep checking back as I will be uploading loads of them today and tomorrow as I go through my box's.  All my stamps are well looked after and treated with care! Most are still like new and don't even look used, some aren't used at all. I am doing free postage to the UK But will have to ask for something towards postage overseas.

Keep it Simple: Shape Up Challenge

This weeks Keep it Simple Challenge is sponsored by me!! and look at the fab prize I am offering up.

I am sponsoring this prize in memory of both my Grandparents who sadly both passed on to cancer within the last 15 months.

My project for this challenge: Shape Up, is a little christmas tree ornament. Made in printed vellum from stash (no idea who made it, it was a 12x12 sheet) Poked through holes following the pattern and then filled it with pot-pourri. Smells divine and will be hanging on my tree this year.The pattern for this is from PaperTrey inc and available HERE.

Wild Orchid, Just Magnolia, Friday Sketchers & Pro-Markers

My brand spanking new Magnolia Stamp Club kit arrived on Saturday so I whipped it out and started inking it up straight away!! Had real fun making this card, but I will admit I messed up a few times so I had to recycle a few parts into other parts. I had the brilliant idea of using the doily Marianne Designs die around the image, so I stamped away cut away and then went hrmmphh it looks cack!! So I re cycled it and turned it over and coloured it with distress ink and tah-dah my idea is re-born, shame I wasted some water colour paper though. So Challenges I am entering this into

I Love Pro-Markers: Think Pink - self explanatory which part is used to fulfil this challenge. I have used Aqua-Markers though so I hope this is ok.

Passion for Pro-Markers: Recycle - The ribbon came off a Christmas pressie from last year, I think that is suitably recycled.

Wild Orchid Challenge: Stitch it up - Did a little faux stitching ala Dyan Reaveley style.

Friday Sketchers: The sketch - I didn't add on the flowers in the sketch because it looked too much for my taste, hope this is ok.

Just Magnolia: 2 X 2 - Images are the new Magnolia stamp club, I have used 2X stamps, 2X papers, 2X ribbons, 2X main focal colours (slightly lying as their is a bit of gold in their too but I claim artistic license!!)

Thanks for looking
