Background stamping and Retro Sketch #21

Well the online card class is over and there were so many fabulous ideas, and unfortunately for me, just not enough time to put them into action.  Although if you check out the state of my dining/craft table you will be mighty impressed with my efforts to have a go!

Oh dear - chaos!

Anyway I managed to make quite a few cards, that I am really quite pleased with, they must be all right, one friend came over last night and asked if she could have one to give her daughter for her birthday?!   Happy to oblige of course.  The card today uses a background stamp, the medallion stamp from Stampin Up, with some ideas from the online card class Stretch Your Stamps, and retro sketch #21.

Have a great week, Jenny

I'm back....

I know it has been a long time, but I have been doing the online card classes with Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner - Stretch your stamps, and I am super keen to be crafting away.  This is a card I did on the weekend for a wedding.  I decided to use up some beautiful papers I had and let them do all the hard work.  I am so pleased with how it turned out.  I used the double bow techinique I learned from Danielle Daws blog

I am a little bit obsessed with instagram so I tend to get carried away with the editing, so aplogies for that.

Will be back in a few days with some exciting cards - I hope!
