Playing with new stamps....

On Friday I went to Dunkley's Great New Zealand Craft Fair... because no less than 6 stamping and scrapbooking stalls were there.... as well as lots of other stalls... I got some Spicy seeds, some yummy boysenberry fudge and of course some new stamps.... from Rubbadubbadoo and a Tim Holtz one as well as a set of Sizzex embossing folders....

The Rubbadubbadoo stamp set is called Seaside.  I made this lovely card on Saturday for Lily Pad Cards latest challenge ~ to use ribbon.

Sea Shore


I used distress inks on the base card and then stamped the small set of shells over and over to form a patterned background.  On another piece of card, I did more distressing and then stamped the larger panel from the set.  I used some Distress ink to add extra colour to the shells.  Added the ribbon and the bow with some ric-rac.

I did manage a few more cards on my day's stamping on Saturday...  my flickr photostream has them all there, I'll be sharing them here over the next few days..

Cheers
Dawn
