Welcome to my world!

My world of stamping has now taken on a big change, and has become 'My world of Crafting'. Hopefully I can get back to the routine of more regular blogging.

And here's another!

Well!! Two posts in one day is unbelieveable!
A cutesy Tilda from the new Winter collection. I just love her and my collection of stamps just keeps growing - it's like there's a Tilda tree at the bottom of the garden and I keep picking them!
They're coming from somewhere anyway.

And having just received my wonderful new Martha Stewart lattice arch punch, I just had to use it. It's absolutely wonderful, just a shame they are not readily available here in the UK. I was using the Pocket Silhouette set again and came up with this.

When I sit down to make a card, I don't really know what it is going to be like. It just tends to evolve, and this was my latest result.
What do you do? Do you have a plan in mind when you create?
Please let me know so that I don't feel alone in my ways.
Thanks for looking.

Pocket silhouettes

Pocket silhouettes - such a useful little set!How's this for simple but I loved making it and just had to carry on making more. The designs stamp beautifully. I used my ink spots for these images as I can have each colour range for just £17.50 - that's 12 stamp pads. Gives me a taster for the colours which I know I will use the most.
This one shows the background clear embossing a little better but my photography is not up to much!

And here's all three - the centre one using my dearly loved scallop border punch. And the tag punches, 1/4" grosgrain ribbon and co-ordinating cardstock.
Why not check out my 'Ribbon share' and 'Cardstock share' and 'Brads Galore'.
That was the beauty of making these cards - I was able to reach for just the colours I wanted at the time. Inspired by the tag design on the front cover of the SU catalogue, I decided to try a few colourways myself. And I think they work!
If you would like to take part in any of my shares, I have a few remaining places, so just let me know. And this lovely set, Pocket Silhouettes, is one of the die-cut sets for easier mounting, and costs just £15.95.
Thanks for looking.
Be back soon!
