new Crafty Individuals Stamps







What a lovely surprise I had today to receive some new stamps from Crafty Individuals through the post. Of course I had to play straightaway, and as I had the One Layer Wednesday Challenge (just stamps and ink) and St Lukes Charity Challenge (black white and one other colour) on my mind I thought I'd play with them too.
This first card if for both challenges and really couldn't be easier, but I kind of like it




The second card isn't for any challenge, but was just playing. I handwrote the words over the words on the stamp, to make them jump out. and added some random dots of stickles. (I will be sending this to the st Lukes appeal along with all my spare cards at the moment.)

  2. Wow - a first card in so quick - thanks Joanne. I love this elegant lady stamp and its a great take on both our challenge and OLW. I love your other card too - great idea to write in the tree - I think we get so caught up with stamps that we forget we can just WRITE things simply sometimes.
    Thanks so much for playing in our colour challenge this month and for sending some cards to the hospice - they will be greatly received.

  6. Love the elephant card, but I really like the lady card, she looks really elegant. Reminds me of the TV program House of Elliot.
