Clearly Besotted Make A Splash Dolphin Stamps - Projects And Review

Clearly Besotted are fast becoming my new stamp company of choice, month after month they release teasers of their stamp sets to tempt me, and they are all so inventive, and so cute, it's been hard not to buy each time. But while I can't purchase each month I do have a few sets now and have been impressed on every score. The designs are really cute and usable in several different ways, the quality is there, and I love their little customer service touches. Each stamp set has arrived in a colourful pink bag, with an invoice and a little handwritten thank you on it. It's those touches that really go a long way to making you trust a brand, and feeling like you are getting value for money because although they are reused over and over, some stamp sets are not cheap.

At the time of writing this Dolphin-themed 'Make A Splash' stamp set is still available on the website for £2.48. I chose this one because Dolphins are one of my favourite animals, but I also liked how they were drawn in different positions for scene building. The little sentiments and stamps to create splashes were a nice touch as well.

I've posted below a couple of cards I made using the stamps, Sticker Kitten sequin set (very pretty colours, and stuck to card surprisingly well using tacky glue), and some stash items. On the second card, I even Googled a few images and added a few quick sea-themed cut-outs which was a lot of fun to do.

Action Themed Handmade Card - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Hi Everyone, Hope you're all having a good week! Just want to say thanks to all of you that have been reading and commenting on my blog posts, especially the recent craft ones, joining in with the Daring Cardmakers challenges. I don't always have time to blog along, but this week the theme was 'action', and it was the perfect excuse to make a card with a topper kit I have had laying around for ages. The card I made is perfect for sports fans of all ages, and as a big diving fan, I'm sure this one will be a lot of fun for all. My main image and some of the extra bits are from a Hunkydory kit, I just love the image of the guy diving and his reflection shown in the water.  Copyright 2017 - These City Days I found some aperture cards in my stash and I'm enjoying decorating round the edges and adding some dimension to the designs. This time I went for a few sentiments, stars punched from holographic card, and some jute twine from Baker Ross.  I am slight

Daring Cardmakers - Trim The Tree Craft Challenge - Cross Stitch Card

Hi Everyone, It's the start of another week, and I'm fresh from seeing some of my favourite musical friends, for the first time in a long while, at our Christmas light switch on. I have some video, but I have never edited video clips in my life, so while I figure out what I'm doing, time to catch up on some other blog posts. I have joined in and submitted craft projects to the Daring Cardmakers Challenge before, and it's been great fun. So I just want to thank everyone who has commented on my previous posts, and add to this weeks challenge 'Trim The Tree'. I am working my way through a few small cross stitch kits from magazine free gifts, and this tree design really stuck out from my stash. It was easy and fun to stitch, and I even tweaked it a bit to add some gold glitter for the star at the top. Instead of hanging it in the supplied aperture card though, I found a plant pot topper with 25 on, and mounted it on a card just above that. The finished car

3 Ways With Mama Makes Bohemian Border Stamps

Hi Everyone, There's a little bit of a crafty overload here and on social media at the moment, but there are other posts planned and in draft form, so please look out for those, they just take a little bit of time to put together. Meantime I wanted to share the Mama Makes Bohemian Border stamps. I am a member of the design team, but bought these as I really liked the range of different designs - there are 10 in total, and had quite a few ideas of what I could do with them. I thought I'd post the stamps below, and 3 very different makes I came up with using them. 1) A Christmas Card - The Bohemian Border here I used as a Christmas garland, and absolutely love how it looks all coloured and glittered (had to get a little sparkle in there). The other thing I like about this set, is some of the designs are more of a bunting/garland shape, and not just a straight line, so there are handy gaps you can decorate with stick on gems or small embellishments for a finishing touch.
