I've been working from home for the last 4 days as we are back in lockdown 3 for 7 days. I have set up my tablet and old TV monitor on my craft table - which I have to say is very distracting!!!! I use my break times to do some crafting... 10 mins in the morning and afternoons and 20 mins or so at lunch time. So over the past few days I have been trying out a new tool! I brought some Simon Hurley stamping foam from my local online store (Krafters Cart) and after watching Jennifer McGuire and Simon's videos I made a few backgrounds... using stamps and embossing folders. I made a few backgrounds and today I finished my first card.

Purple florals - and using Stamping Foam.
My background was made using a Hero Arts background stamp. I followed the instructions on heating the foam and pushed it into stamp. I used some Altenew ink to rub over the foam and stamped it onto some white card. I trimmed around the edge and added it to my purple embossed base card. I stamped Altenew Gift for You onto some scrap card and used my Jasart pencils to colour it in. I fussy cut it and added the little sentiment stripe that I had in my "magic mug" a la Laurel Beard. A few pearls finished of the card. I must admit to loving this one... Purple is my favourite colour.
Now I just have to make sure that I don't get too distracted with all my crafty goodness around for the rest of the week. I will be strong!
