At Ally Pally on Saturday I picked up a set of fun Christmas sentiments for half price. The really made me smile!
Here is one of them!
I stamped three thumb prints in Peeled Paint Distress Ink and added googly eyes and little arms and legs then added the fun sentiment from Woodware!
I tried another card using the same sentiment, this time using a set of Alte New flower stamps.
I actually think that this looks more like a lettuce than a sprout, however I was actually pleased with the stamping, as I find getting these several step stamps to match up in both position and shading is quite tricky!
I spotted that CASology has the challenge 'Sprout' so I couldn't resist!
The next couple contain some smooshing and I used some of my new stuff from the craft show.
The sentiment dies are from Craft Stash and I've been looking for the packets to find the make of the bird and the grasses, but sadly they haven't surfaced yet!
More smooshing for the butterfly backgrounds here with my new Poppy butterfly dies. I love them. The frame and the ginkgo embossing are from Craft Stash and the 'Thanks' from Penny Black. One of my Spellbinders squares works perfectly size-wise with the frame!
I used Old Gold, Inka Gold with Festive Berries and Scattered Straw
Just US Girls would like to see smooshing so there are two to choose from here!
