What a busy week! Saturday was spent with the grand children so not a lot of time for crafting! Although we did have a play with some stamps and shrink plastic, and they each made a necklace. Sunday I went to Stamperama in Stevenage. It was far busier than last time and even though I promised myself I wouldn't overspend.......!! Well we all know we just can't say no!

Bought some lovely stamps from Clarity Samps I love watching Barbara Gray demonstrate. She has some fantastic ideas and her stamps are brilliant quality.
This card was made using the Corset stamp along with the Feminine script stamp. The corset was done with cosmic Shimmer Fibres and Film. The stamp was inked with Archival black, then a layer of Aurora film followed by some blue fibres, then another layer of film then heated with the iron. This was repeated 3 times and layered. The top layer has been laced with some silver thread. Then the corset was mounted on card which had been stamped with th Feminine Script Stamp.

Just want to thank Maria for sending me this lovely stamped image along with the blog candy I was lucky enough to win. ( By the way, I have used the stamp I won, but haven't completed the card yet!) I promptly visited Funkykits
and purchased a few!!! Sugar Nellie stamp, this being one of them. Isn't she beautiful? I've mounted it on a selection of Cuttlebug embossed pieces.

Lastly I have just finished an order for a 16th birthday card. I have used this stamp a lot. You can find it atDimension Fourth

along with the Number stamps.

Next Craft Club is this Tuesday and we are looking at Bondable Fibres and Films (As used in the Corset Card). You can produce some wonderful toppers, or even jewellry, with these. So watch this space.

Love Lynne

Stunning cards!! - I love that corset stamp too (and have it - but haven't used it tut tut!) I joined Barbara's club last year at Ally Pally in April - the corset stamp was part of my joining package. I love how your card has turned out really stunning!

And the cute Sugar Nellie - they are lovely stamps - and have you seen the new ones just out - I'm especially falling in love with the new gorjuss girls stamp set on pre-order!!!......Again you've made a gorgeous card with her.

I love the colouring on your corset card. I remember seeing Barbara's turorial for the stamp in Craft Stamper and I'm pretty sure this one is nicer. I like the Sugar Nellie card too.
