The birds and the beads

I've been working in miniature this week, did some tiny things with Lavinia stamps and now used a little set I bought months ago and just inked up for the first time.

I made it for a challenge which was to use beads, but now I can't remember which challenge it was or even if it is a current challenge. Really I ought to be locked up, I'm dangerous! Oops I forgot, I already am lol. It's a miniature exploding box, all of 4 cm square.

I've loved playing around with such small stamps, think I'll use them tomorrow to make a few cards. Off to have a look for the challenge blog so I can enter.

Bye for Now

Ha! Not found the challenge I was looking for but the Simon Says Monday Challenge is winged things so here goes!

Now I've remembered why I was messing with beads! Try it on Tuesday also have beads as their challenge. It's hard to believe that Janet and I started this challenge so long ago and it's still going strong . They have a dt call out at the moment. Now I wonder.........

A little frippery

Just a quicky today. I was given three sets of crafters companion cd's a couple of weeks ago and amongst them was a lovely set of tiny stamps which caught my eye so promptly got them out to play with.

Aren't they sweet? Loved stamping and colouring them to create miniature masterboards and that little heart stamp is delightful. They made me smile while I was making them and make me smile now they are finished!

Hope you're smiling too

Chocolate Eggs

And so they are! Fantastic stamps from chocolate baroque. I saw these on my travel through blog land and just had to have the set! Bet you've never heard that tale before have you?

The purple card was stamped and embossed with moonglow embossing poders then inked over with purple. If you look carefully you'll be shock to see a peel off or two. I didn't have a happy easter stamp so have had to write the sentiment on these cards.

The orange background was inked onto gloss card then stamped over in black and the egg was embossed then inked over. Love the formality of the pattern on the eggs.

Both these cards were embossed with gold embossing powder onto black card. Loving the effect of the light colours on black but maybe not a spring like theme?? I've used the dreaded stuff (peel off) again. O
If you say it really fast it's not really noticeable!

I'd better get these in the post now before this feak and weeble mind of mine lets me down!

Have a good week
