My new stamp

I bought a new stamp a couple of weekends ago - at a car boot sale! I bought it for £2.00 and knew it would look lovely... especially when I teamed it with my papers from Pink Petticoat and the bracket stamps from a Q.V.C set I bought aggges ago! I loved these papers so much, that I didn't want to hide too much of them...

I just added some organza ribbon and a congrats stamp (from the Q.V.C. set) with a bit of matting and layering. ....



A lovely classy paper from Pink Petticoat, simply matted with a length of organza ribbon and my new stamp has been mounted on foam pads....



This card is made using the cuttlebug birds embossing folder, a cuttlebug diecut corner and a homemade stamp! yes!!! I made the stamp myself! (with help of hubby) when I bought a set called IMAGE-PAC. I haven't had a play with the pack for a while, but may try again over the Easter hols. Liquid pearls used, also.


Another gorgeous paper from Pink Petticoat... matted on dark red. Stamps as before, and a touch of liquid pearls. Thanks for looking! xx
