Fairground Themed Stamping & Handmade Card Projects.

A crafter can never have too much stash right? according to my family you can, but I had a good sort out of all my paper craft products and my stamp collection was a bit lacking, and some of them were of a similar theme. Time for something new, so I ordered the Fairground Fun stamp set from the For The Love Of Stamps by Hunkydory.

This really appealed to me, as I have many happy memories of going to the fair when I was younger, and when it arrived I wasn't disappointed. I think I will get a lot of value from this set, as some of the individual images can be used on their own for different theme cards, there's possibilities to aim at different age groups, and create a fairground scene or two.

I have made a couple of cards so far, and found the stamps easy to work with and good quality. My favourite of the two cards I will share details for below. This is an invitation idea, and instead of using the card blank traditionally folded, I folded in and under, which you can hopefully see from the photo. There's a triangle shaped tube which helps the card stand up, and a panel which you can add all your party details on to. To make this card I used:
