"Playing with New Stamps"

Hello Blog friends, followers and passers by.  Welcome, I just love that you come visit.  Thank you to all who come and leave a comment I enjoy reading them.  I had a lovely new commenter the other day ... Laura O`Connor who unfortunately does not have a Blog so I cant return the favour.   I now have a few regular commenters that don`t have Blogs.  However thank you for taking the time to visit and leave a message.
About a week ago I saw a stunning card on this Blog:-  http://drakesfieldcards.blogspot.co.uk/
Well actually every card Tina shows is Stunning.  If you get time pop over and have a look.  
Anyway Tina had used a set of Stamps that gave the most wonderful effect.  With Tina`s  help I managed to get the set of Stamps and have had great fun playing with them.  
Here is just one of the cards I have made:-


Base Card approx 7 x 7 PMD Hammered Card
Layers of the same card cut with SB Grand Square Dies. (I was rather annoyed that these Dies left copper colouring round the edges of the Die Cut)
Yellow card from stock
StampingUp Stippled Blossom Stamp Set  (This is what they call a "Two Step" stamping system)
Adirondack inks 

The Stamps come with a "Solid" image and an "open" one to go with it.  You stamp the solid then overstamp with the open one.  It certainly gives a stunning effect, I am NOT a stamper but I certainly LOVED working with these.

Robert was here Thursday evening, Audrey and I were out.  Grandpa was in charge, Robert wanted to make a card for their neighbour down the lane who has just has a Hysterectomy Operation.  Left him a box of bits, I did stamp a couple for sentiments for him.  He made a stunning card which I will show you tomorrow.

Right off to play with my stamps again
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate it
Till tomorrow
Hugs
