Welcome to all my blogging friends! I am now a Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator.

Tuesday 1 June 2010


Over at Crafty Ann's is a Blog Hop with a difference plus a challenge called - Lots of Colour
This week until 3rd June Ann is running her Blog Hop and Challenge. It has been running for two weeks and as usual I am late taking part.
She has her latest Digi designs to send to a lucky winner.
All you have to do is visit her blog, leave comments on her design team blogs, collect the words shown, when you have collected all the words you should have a lovely verse. Ann ask's that you email her with your answer and add the number from Mr Linky when you take part in the challenge.

For my card I chose a collage stamp from Crafty Individuals which I bought last September whilst at the Craft Barn. This is the first time it has been used.
It was stamped with Versamark then I added Sticky Embossing Powder and heated.
Various colours of Moonglow Mica Powders were brushed over the image.
I can't seem to get away from butterflies but I love this particular stamp, hope you do too.

Sorry for the picture, my scan does not bring out the lovely colours, will try again with my camera

This is stunning Christine - I haven't seen sticky embossing powder but after seeing this, I think I'll have to go looking for it! It's utterly beautiful - thank you for taking part in the blog hop and good luck!!!

That's a lovely stamp Christine and a great idea to colour it with micas.

This looks so very, very pretty, Christine.
The stamp is gorgeous and what you have done with it sounds very clever to me :-)
A stunning result!
Thank you for sharing this with us at Crafty Ann's

Christine, what a gorgeous card. I bought some of the sticky embossing powders when I was at the Stamp Addicts Open Day recently but haven't got around to trying it out - yet!!! Thanks for taking part in Crafty Ann's Challenge this fortnight and we hope to see you back again very soon. Best wishes, Kym xxx
