Playing with my new stamps

Today's Challenge from 365 Cards is to use denim somewhere on the card. I downloaded a denim background from Canon and stamped it with my Unity pocket stamp. I then added the rivets (eyelets) and the 501 tag, which I made of the computer.
I thought that this would do also for Creative Inspirations challenge of letters and numbers, only to realise when I came back from having my nails done, that a new CI challenge started today! I'll add my comment anyway!
For 365 Cards yesterday the challenge was to use cross-stitching somewhere on one's card. I have been playing around with my new Tim Holtz background stamps and realised that the mesh one seemed the perfect backdrop for a little cross-stitching. You will have to look closely to spot it however as the background has been overprinted somewhat, plus Tim Holtz stamps are often messy anyway. The flower image is from Hobby Art, the sentiment from Cuddly Buddly.


  1. Nice card. I'm loving the detail of the 501 tag!

  2. Hi Chrissie,
    Great cards, the denim paper is perfect for the Unity stamp and I like how you have made them into 501's!
    The distressing on the second card is fab, I adore Tim Holtz stamps but stick to just looking at them for now!
    I hope all is well with you.

  3. Brilliant! Love the pocket!

  4. Fantastic job on both cards, really pretty!

  5. love the denim pocket and the sentiment.

    Yes I cut my frames apart, used a craft knife and didn't have to take care or anything - be as rough as you like, they come apart really easily. I found I do need to use an extra piece of thin card as a shim to get the to cut well.


  6. Super cards Chrissie, love the first one the pocket is very different love it.

  7. both are gorgeous!! but LOVE the 2nd one!!

  8. Hi Chrissie

    I love the jeans pocket, so cool. I don't know if you have heard of the Scrapping Cop but she has a lot of freeby images for scrapbooking /cards on her site. One of them is jeans pockets. I'll give you the link for you to go see She has so much to look at.
