Hello - is there anyone there?
I cannot believe it has been one month since my last post. What on earth have I been up to!
After my holiday I had some preparation catching up to do with projects for my clubs & also for my workshops, then there are also domestic duties & family things. So, it doesn't take long for the time to rush past. I haven't even joined in a single challenge in this last month - but hope to put that to rights starting today.
So, I thought I had better start posting news of my stamping efforts & am going to cover my latest work in progress across a couple of posts. I am not currently doing anything amazing just some honest to goodness rubber stamping. I decided to prepare some images, then colour them or whatever I was going to do with them, then turn them into cards.
Here are some pictures of my basic stamping stage;
After I had stamped the image on to three white card pieces I realised I had left myself with a strange size leftover on the right of the image if I trimmed close to the image.
Then I had the idea to put something alongside to extend the design, & decided to use this rather nice flourish - which if I remember correctly comes from Dimension Fourth. Two attempts & the image came out perfect, but the third one decided not to take properly. I will therefore have to trim that one back to being just the sentiment. My idea with the other two is to add a flower at the top of the flourish - so that will be stage 2 of work in progress on this one.
I saw it because I scrutinised it so closely. The next stage with this image is to carefully cut between them to get four images.
After I had got this far & taken the photos I had a think about what I would do next & that was stage 2 which I carried out yesterday & have still to photograph. So after a long spell of hearing nothing from me - there will be two posts today.
The other "play" I had yesterday was to make a multi fold / layer card that I had seen on the Internet called a "Six fold card" when it is finished I will do a post about it, but before I do I want to check the site I found it at so that I can give credit where it is due.
That's me for now - back later & I do hope my followers are still out there.
Have a good Sunday. 'Bye.
