Friday Die Day

Hello friends

So this stamp set has been sitting on my desk and I like it so
much I thought I would use it again for this week's Friday Die Day!
It is Spellbinders - Thanks a Bunch.

There's a total of 31 stamps in this set, I especially like the delicate leaves.
A very simple card because I'm a real amateur stamper!
Applied two strips of washi tape horizontally.

Using a variety of inks I started with the leaves.

Then began to add flowers, occasionally using second and third 
generation stamping (picking up the jargon!)
Believe me there was no method with this, if I saw a gap
I stamped in it!

Removed the tape and added a little sentiment.

Super quick, super effective and super easy! 

And I sort of like the wishy washy effect too!

 Thanks a Bunch is available on the website here,
still on offer along with the full collection of the 
new Spellbinders stamps here.

So what is happening over the weekend,
do you have nice things planned?
I'm off to a craft workshop tomorrow hosted by the 
talented Eileen Godwin, she doesn't live too far from me and 
my plan this year is to learn lots more crafty stuff.
I'm looking forward to trying out backgrounds and 
becoming a better stamper. I'll be sharing my projects with you.

Take care friends, have a lovely weekend.

Your card is so pretty Christine, I’m also going to try to do more stamping and I’ve started getting inky and experimenting with my own backgrounds. Messy but fun.
Enjoy your craft workshop at the weekend.

Lovely card today, Christine. Will try that soon.

Enjoy the workshop tomorrow. I've been going to the 2nd week for a few years now and have learnt such a lot. Eileen is a great teacher and all the crafters are lovely .

Hi Christine - what a lovely card. Like many of the previous bloggers, I must spend some more time with my inks and stamps. And I also promised myself that I would prepare a catalogue of my dies... I'm hoping to emerge from that by Easter... Best wishes, Anne O

Hi Christine, I'm loving your pretty border.
Enjoy your workshop with Eileen, I look at her Blog and she does lots of cards with Lavinia Stamps which I love, and she is such a fabulous crafter, I love all her 'inkiness'.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
