Springtime & Easter

    This workshop board contains a mixture of stamping and die cutting. The cross, which would also make a lovely sympathy card, is from stampendous as is the card with the large bunnies( I also have lots more done with these stamps & dies). The paper pieced tulip is a woodware stamp and most of the dies are Sue Wilson's. The daffodil from the winter garden creative stamping also fits in nicely here

The shadow box card is made from a number of dies I had opened and the basket which appears on the cards above can also be used to make a nice Easter basket - shame I had no eggs!

creative Stamping 40

Sorry I'm late with this. I was lacking inspiration for a theme to go with these stamps then I decided to use shaped cards as an idea to explore.
This issue deals with a few  male and female hobbies so in the end this is what I came up with

Some cards used dies to produce the shapes, others we cut ourselves.
My challenge with these magazine stamps is to try and use them all and no others but whilst doing a workshop someone said shame no sewing machine , so we got out the woodware sewing machine stamp and used this on the side stepper as shown below which I think works a lot better.

This week I am starting on the next issues stamps, hopefully to get a number of cards done before they come in!
