Craft Stamper

Hope you are all enjoying you christmas hols as I am still !!( Sorry if you have already returned to work !!)
Anyway,  January`s Craft Stamper mag has a free fab Chantecleer the Cockerel Stamp which I love !! The stamp is by Rainbow Studios I was inspired by designers Rachel May, Joanne Allison and Faye Wynn-Jones to make my cards.
The first card I have paper pieced the cockerels using papers from Wildrose Studio.
 The second tag card is my favourite !! My crafty friend Anna gave me a lovely small christmas present of some tags and sentiment frames cut from craft card from a Tim Holtz die !!
For my third card I have again paper pieced the cockerel with papers from Basic Grey Wassail paper pad. The flower is just a strip of matching card which I cut into all along one edge and then rolled up !!
For my last card I have made my version of Joanne Allisons design which is in the mag. For mine I have used paper from Basic Grey Pyrus paper pad which has been woven just at the left hand corner. The cockerel has been coloured in with promarkers.

I hope you have been inspired to have a play with this fab stamp as I was !!

Little Felix

I have a smashing friend called Sue, who looks after and loves a pretty feral cat called Little Felix. It`s taken Sue years to build up a trust between them to a point were she can fuss Little Felix only to have it ruined by a dog attack in her garden earlier this year, but with lots of love from Sue, she has again built up the trust between them. Thought I just show you a little gift I made Sue, this cute wall hanging of Little Felix......

Telescopic Card

One of our card club challenges at AMOM is to make a telescopic card. These are great fun to make and if you would like to have a go, just have a look on Youtube. You will find loads of tutorials on how too.

For mine I have used stamps by Hero Arts and several spellbinders and nellie dies. They can be made with any shape, just have a play....
My top tip is: When using double sided tape, wear it on your wrist like a bangle and you won`t loose it or drop it on the floor like I use too !!
