One for Me

Having spent a lot of time lately crafting either for challenges or for other people, I thought I'd spend some time doing something just because I liked it, and I definitely do love some of my new purchases from The Craft Barn, particularly this beautiful border stamp from Melissa Frances


I've been waiting for the right time to use it and last night was the night. I embossed it in a smoky purple colour which matches the cardstock perfectly then stamped and embossed the inkadinkdo circle stamp on the same card.


The bottom piece has a very subtle damask stamped with one of the new papermania stamps and all topped off with the silk flowers and leaves cut on the robo crop.

Do you know how it is sometimes, your desk is tidy, you're using stamps you love and have a clear idea how you want the piece to look. What Pleasure!!

Hope you're all enjoying your crafting as much as I enjoyed doing this.
Happy days!
x Michelle
