Addicted to Stamps and More








Here's my CAS card...for the Challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More



I was inspired by all the daffodils that are springing up everywhere.




Recipe:
1. White scalloped card blank layered with a square cut with a stitched die. On this I printed the the sentiment directly. (Craftstash March Daffodil Stamp Set)
2. I stamped the daffodil using the same stamp set, cutting out the elements and piecing them together.

Hope you will enter the Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge!




Happy Crafting!

This is my Day #5 Post Part 2!
And my final post as I am off to bed shortly...(even though I still have a few images on my work table that I didn't get round to...)

I have two more ATCs to show you in this post.

  
 I have used images and sentiment from Lizzy Love at  Oddball Art Co



In each case I printed the images and added a little colour with Copics and then trimmed them. I used scraps of card to make the layers behind the images.

I distressed the second with Black Soot distress ink.
Finally I added a little embellishment.




I will add these ATCs to the linky...on Leigh's Day #1 on 12th February

Happy Hopping!

Leigh's Dark Valentine Blog Day # 5



I am delighted to once again join in one of Leigh's Hops:
Leigh's "My Dark Valentine"
2nd Annual Blog Hop

This is my Day #5 Post!

In this post I have a tag to share...

  
In my craft room sort out I came across some skull beads and some heart shaped shaker thingies...


I started with a MDF tag which I layered with a piece of black card and then a piece of eco paper a friend had sent me. I had punched the corners of this and punched a heart shape to let in the shaker thing.




I added beads to the heart, distressed wround the edges with Black Soot and then added the metal embellishment and the gold roses. I added the verse, printed on some Fabscraps paper and again distressed around the edges with Black Soot.
Fonally I added the string with two more beads.


The verse is 


“Do not stand at my grave and weep,

I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glint on snow.”

This uplifting bereavement poem was written by Mary Elizabeth Frye in the 1930s. It declares that the people you love are not gone, they are all around you.
I will add this tag to the linky...on Leigh's Day #1 on 12th February



Happy Hopping!
