something a little cute and a giveaway...

Not sure if you have seen these that are up for sale in the shop...

There are some seriously cute images in this particular range....so cute that they caught my eye...this one in particular....

Now...those of you who know me, know...i am not a stamp person...i am not an ink person...!

But i have found myself in a rut lately and wanted to break out and try something different. So i grabbed this stamp and just had a go.

Here is what i came up with...


For the image of the little girl... i wanted it to have some dimension...i don't like flat things.
So i stamped  out all the different parts of the girl and cut them out...



and then adhered them to the  base stamped image....

i did this to even the tiniest details...ie...the little hearts on her boots are cut out..yep very small but worth it!( and i had nothing else to do that day !!!lol

For that little extra detailing i added some real lace to the bottom of her skirt! so very cute!




So to all you card makers out there that are like me..not stampers and find them intimidating...just have a go...you never know...you may enjoy it...i know i did!

Supplies used...I used a range of Crate Paper for this page..and the small white flower are done using the Paper Frills.

Okay so onto the giveaway... do you fancy winning these stamps?

 
If you fancy winning these stamps shown above ...leave a comment about what you would like to see more of here on this blog... You have till next Saturday ..... Thanks for popping in.

Love how you used the stamps especially the lace on the skirt. I would love to see some altered art techniques on your blog. I am really new to AE and it would be great having a better idea of where to start with things at the moment I am making it up as I go with differing levels of success lol

Beautiful card! I am pretty new to stamping and just purchased my first 5 Copics today- I have no idea what to do with them! So I would love to see some stamping techniques here and tutorials using Copics. Thanks so much for asking.

I would like to see more Altered Art projects on your blog please, maybe using the base products you stock from KaiserCraft, Tim Holtz, Tando Creative etc.
Tags, ATCs, stamping, techniques and the occasional challenge would be good too please.
