Cherry Blossom Background

I love our new Cherry Blossom Background stamp.
Here are three of the cards that Esther made using this stamp.

Gelli Plate Grunge

Esther made this card using our Grunge 1 set and Swirly Kitty.
She created the backgrounds with Gelli Plate Prints.
Personally I have not used the Gelli Plate but I know Lesley is also a big fan of this medium.

The greeting is from a label maker and Swirly Kitty is embossed in black.

I love our Grunge 1 set created by Lesley as all the elements are so useful, I especially love the paint rings and the circle of stars.

Swirly Tree

This is our Swirly Trees and birds with some Grunge Flowers as well as grunge stamps in the background.

Brenda made this fabulous card using so many different elements and lovely colours.

Textured Florals

A couple more cards from Esther.
You can see our Design Team has been hard at work playing with our new stamps over the last few weeks.

The top card has the Grunge Background from Grunge 1 set which is a mini version of the background, perfect size for ATCs or card toppers.

Esther stamped both these cards using Distress inks.  If you look closely at the second card you can see the panel in the background has been over stamped with the texture panel from the Textured Floral set.

Floral Thanks

Esther made this card using our Textured Floral stamp set which is different stems and flower heads so you can mix and match, as well as a background panel.

Esther sprayed the background with Dylusions and Adirondack sprays and then embossed the flowers and greeting with white embossing powder.

Have you met Swirly Dog?

Brenda made this card using our new Swirly Dog.
Our Swirly Cat has been so popular we thought it only fair to make one for the dog lovers out there.

As well as looking great embossed in black he also looks really good when embossed with Sticky Stuff and covered in gold leaf (onto dark card).

Happy Easter

All these cards have been made using stamps from one set which you can find in our ebay store.

Our Ebay store is StampingSisters.
It is a discontinued cling mounted rubber stamp set from A Stamp In The Hand so our stock is very limited.

The bottom 3 cards are by Kay Carley.

Spring Time

I think of the huge selection of cards that Brenda made for us this could be my favourite.
It is ingenious the way she has added a stamp from our Floral Fancy 1 set onto the tree so it is no longer naked and now has leaves and berries or blossoms.
The tree, birds and words are from our Spring Branch set that was designed by Lesley.

I also love the way the sun is peaking out from behind the clouds, I always forget to do that and either have a full sun or no sun!
Brenda has added red liquid pearls to the berries and the birds look like they have some Wink of Stella for added sparkle.

Roman Clocks

Brenda has been hard at work playing with lots of our new stamps.
On this card she has used our Roman Clock along with several of our Grunge stamps.
I have also spotted our Music stamp in the background.
The whole card has a shimmer and for added texture Brenda has used a honeycomb stencil and texture paste.

I'm sure Brenda will give more details on her blog when she posts this gorgeous card.

Wedding Couple

This is our Bride & Groom stamped in black Archival.
We then used clear Wink of Stella Brush to colour the brides dress and veil, gold for her hair and silver for his trousers.
The words come from our Wedding Script unmounted stamp set.

This image is perfect for Wedding Invitations or Wedding Cards.
This card only takes a few minutes to make so if you need to make lots is perfect.
Card by Vicky.

Project Club April

This is our April Project Club Card.
We still have a couple of spaces on our 7pm class tomorrow (9th April) if you would like to join us please call to book on 01234 855833.

The background is our new Cherry Blossom Background that has been stamped in black Archival onto a coloured vellum.
The tag has been distressed and then we have stamped over with Doodle Flowers 1 in Memento and coloured with Promarkers.
The two borders are from Lesley's Happy Flowers stamp set.
The ribbon was white, we didn't have the right colour for the card so we coloured it with distress ink.

Because the vellum we have used is coloured and quite thick we were able to use double sided tape behind it and you can't see it.

We are looking for people that can draw and can also turn our ideas into a reality.

Shaving my head for charity

Yes I am doing it and yes I am bonkers!

Sometime in June (haven't got the exact date yet) I will be shaving off all of my very long hair and hoping to raise lots of money for Breast Cancer Care.

I have set up a page on JustGiving which you can find here.

I am planning lots of photographs of the event and will share them provided the shape of my head isn't too strange!

If you have any spares hats or head scarves you no longer need they would also be much appreciated - I have never been a hat wearer but I feel I may have to become one until my hair grows back.
