There were four of us and we had a lovely natter, lots of crafting and lots of coffee and it was perfect.
I have had some Prima clear stamps for a little while now and just looked at them not knowing where to start. I was thrown in at the deep end last week when for the BasicGrey challenge I had to make "one for the boys" for my DT piece (you can see my card below) and I decided to use these stamps. I wanted to try my hand at resist stamping as I had seen a tutorial on the Hero Arts blog and was keen to have a try and this was the perfect opportunity so I took my Prima stamps with me. This is the card I made.
I used distress inks and stamped the leaves in clear Versafine and then clear embossed them. I then rubbed distress inks over the top. I then mounted them onto some copper coloured card. The florish stamps and the background stamps were also in the set I have. It's not bad for a first effort but I would like to have another go sometime.
I also made this card very quickly at the end as I was keen to try the huge holly stamp. Unfortunately I didn't take the name of it but it is gorgeous and there are so many ways you could use this stamp. I decided to heat emboss it in gold.
I know this stamp is in a set of unmounted stamps and they are grey in colour but if anyone knows the name of it or who makes it, I would be keen to find out. I can always contact the shop to find out but then I might be pursuaded to purchase the set !!!
