Some of the new Hero Arts Christmas stamps are mixed in too - they just seemed to match quirky cuteness of the papers perfectly. Hope you like them too.
Just love the Prima pearls and flowers on this card - the flowers were so easy to dye with distress ink.
I love the Cats Life Press stamps that are on this card - you can use them in so many ways.
Thanks for stopping by :-) Kx

So, what have spent all day doing? Well, I've been playing with a really zingy coloured kit that Wendy (The Stamp Attic) sent me! The samples are all done - but I can't share my favourites until they are in the hands of Wendy, so I've decided to share one today which I made from my last kit. On this one I went a bit mad with all the elements - Wendy had sent me K&Co's Cut & Paste papers, and they were so lovely to work with, as there were so many colours and styles to match with.
I will post pictures of my favourite samples from the most recent kit as soon as Mr Postman has delivered them! Apologies for the terrible photography - this was taken in the late hours of the evening! Card: Linen White Cardstock
Cardstock: K&Co Cut and Paste, Bazzill Bling
Cutting: Fiskars Threading Water Border Punch, Nestabilities Classic and Scalloped Ovals
Stamps: Woodware JGCL507 Ice Cream Parfait
Colouring: Watercolour Pencils
Embellies: Inkessentials Glossy Accents, Pastel Pink Liquid Pearls (Ranger), White Organza Ribbon.

Here is a different view of the back of the room from the hallway - you can see my stamps in 12x12 boxes stacked in the corner - clear stamps are in the Parisian boxes on the shelf units, so the very rare sunlight can't get at them! Mounted single stamps like Magnolia / Sugar Nellie stamps are hiding behind the 'Create' letters on top of the shelves. The drawers hide tools and random inks that i've collected on my travels. There is also a tub for my small paper pads.
Well, after all that I'd best get ready for my washer being fixed! Hope you enjoyed the look ;-).
