'Girlfriends' more Tequila!

I love it when a new parcel arrives in the shop, checking off the goods and arranging the products in the shop, picking products to use in workshops and to make samples with.I just couldn't resist playing with the Art Impression Girl friend stamps that arrived in store the other day but. which to choose. I like them all they are so witty.

I have so many ideas but not a lot of spare time this week so this is just a quick offering. I choose the Dancers set. I coloured the stamp in pencils and mounted the image onto textured mirri card and then onto black card stock. I love the sentiments in this range.

 When I have another play, I will add more pictures to this post.

Happy crafting until next we meet.

Happy Boxes

Dorrie and I went to a Woodware retailers event a couple of weeks ago. It is nice to see products and other peoples ideas for the products. One of the projects completed was taught by Fran Seifold (Stampendous) using one of her fun stamps and some of her delightful Frantage range of embossing  powders and enamels(to see the stampendous range and lots of great inspirational ideas click here)

The blue box was completed on the day. The red smaller box I completed in a little spare time in the shop, a simple idea that looks great. The boxes come convientiently packaged in 2's and along with the stamps and embossing products used they are available in the shop. I used Frantage aged scarlet embossing enamel to cover the wooden box and Snow bird stamp by Stampendous.

Happy crafting
