Welcome Back

Today I’d like to share a picture of a notebook that I made and decorated using Anna Griffin stamps.

Just wanted something quick n easy, but more decorative than the office style notebooks you get in the shops, so I made my own. This is decorated using Anna Griffin’s recent stamp set to QVC, I think it was called Fastenings?.

Coloured using Derwent Inktense and Studio pencils.

Today I’d like to share a picture of a Christmas card I made using Anna Griffin clear stamps. I bought the stamps from QVC last year and I love them, they are so classic and versatile.

Today I’d like to share my first attempt with brayering glossy card stock. I’ll be turning this into a Christmas card, for very special people.

Definitely need a bigger brayer, mine was a short Ranger one and the card is A6! This card was stamped with various Anna Griffin Clear stamp images. If you have a brayer in the back of your cupboard, break out the dye based ink and glossy card and give this a go. It really is down to practice and the right card/ink combination.

The techniques I used were shown on Create and Craft by Barbara Gray from Clarity stamps. There is a regular tutorial show on the first weekednd of every month. Watch the Classroom shows online on; In the Classroom

Have fun

  • Spellbinders Nestabilities die: Curved Rectangles

Don’t forget the inside and back of your card too. If you have one of those stamps or stickers with your address on it, it really helps if you put your details on the back of the card. Friends and family sometimes loose your details and even if they would like to send you a card, without the details on the back of the card or envelope they have no way of doing so.

Have also been playing with my brayer for the first time, after seeing Barbara Gray on C&C demonstrating step by step. Will share that picture with you very soon.
