The Artful Stamper

I spent yesterday adding quite a few more Artful Stamper stamps to our website, these are all at reduced prices - find them here.

And goods news about Stamps by Judith, they have now changed their online policy for Europe so we can put more of their stamps on our website, but please bear with me as it takes time and there are a lot of them.

I'm finally back

I did not know the anaesthetic was going to affect me for this long. Today will be my first day back at work, hopefully I'll last all day although I wouldn't be surprised if I drop off to sleep mid afternoon.
Thankfully I didn't come out all bruised and looking like a chipmunk. The swelling wasn't really visible and the only bruising I have is the one on my hand which is now a lovely shade of yellowish brown.

I'm hoping when I get into the office I'll have some artwork and possibly some exciting news to share with you - I will keep you posted.

Hope you all have a good day and remember to sign up for my blog candy.

Kay Carley Artwork

Good morning

When you read this it will be Thursday morning and I will be on my way to the hospital to have a wisdow tooth extracted - I am a little nervous as I've not had a general anaesthetic in 20 years (gosh I must be getting old, doesn't it creep up on you!). Hopefully when I get home later this evening I won't look like a chipmunk with black eyes.

So in case I'm too groggy afterwards to do any blogging I thought I'd get a couple of days ahead of myself.
A big thank you to all of you that came to Stamperama on Sunday, it was a fab day.

When Kay Carley went home at the end of the day she left us with some of her amazing artwork so here are a couple for you to enjoy, more to follow.
DeNami Elegant Floral Wreath coloured with Brushables pens. In the background is the Elegant Floral Vine.

This is the Elegant Floral Circle and the background is the Elegant Floral Arch.

All embossed in silver.

Stamp Artwork

Saturday it rained on and off all day and was quite chilly, so I thought great - Stamperama will not be too hot this time! Boy was I wrong - wasn't it hot in there today? And the sun was shining outside all day.

But now that Stamperama is finished with for this year and we have a few weeks before we attend the next show (Harrogate) I can think about sending some stamps to our Design Team, whom I have neglected a little this year.

Do we have any stamps that you would really like to see some artwork for?
Let me know and I can try and incorporate them.

Friday, 13 August 2010


The weekend has finally arrived and it brings with it Stamperama on Sunday at Stevenage Arts & Leisure Centre.
I meant to post this morning and remind you to place any orders today for collection at the show but the day just away from me and I ran out of time. We've got 10 lovely ladies visiting from Switzerland for the show and they were in the shop this afternoon for Make & Takes which kept us very busy.

But I'm sure if you called the shop tomorrow and asked Lesley nicely she can bring anything you need to the show on Sunday.

I look forward to seeing you on Sunday

Clay Squisher Heart

Vicky made this heart pendant by rolling Das Air Dry in Black onto a JudiKins Clay Squisher and then cutting with a heart shaped cookie cutter.
You have to remember to make a hole for your jumprings before it drys.
Once it had dried Vicky then gently rubbed over with some Rose Gold Mica Gloss.

Heart Pendant

A couple of months ago I made this Heart pendant using the Patera Grande Heart, I filled it with an offcut of a Mica Gloss background and then stamped onto some acetate and glued that on top of the background. I then filled the whole heart with DG3. We were travelling to several shows as the time so I bought some beads and one evening in our hotel room I beaded the necklace to hang it on.
We are currently out of stock of the silver Grande Heart but we do have them in Gold and Copper if you would like to make one for yourself.

Eiffel Tower - Mica Gloss

Vicky Created this card using all JudiKins images : Eiffel Tower, World Tour Background and
All stamped with Mica Gloss.
The Suitcase was stamped with Mica Gloss onto black shrink plastic.
The layer between the Eiffel Tower and the World Tour Background is black vellum coloured with Mica Gloss.
To stamp with Mica Gloss you can either apply to the stamp using Cut 'n' Dry or create a pallette on your Heat Sheet and use as an inkpad.
It works on matte finished card but does look best on glossy cardstock.
