Nautical Poppy

Well I had all good intentions to use my fab Breast Cancer Awareness stamps and die cut this morning but just could not get an image to create this…typical as all week I had some good images in mind, I must start to jot these down !

Anyway, as my mum’s birthday is looming as she loves Poppies, I decided to give this set another go. Have to admit I am pleased with the outcome and am sure she will love it.

I then came up with a Nautical theme, I have no idea why but came up with this design.

Hope you like 🙂

Poppy Disappointment

As it is my mum’s birthday soon and her favourite flower is Poppies… I was pleased to find a stamp set & die set for a good price.

Well today I had a rare day off and thought I would give them a go… how disappointed I am with this set. Firstly the stamps are not individual stamps, nor would then attach to a stamp block or my WRMK…. so I had to work blind with them.

First attempt was stamp image and place paper on top then use die cut and second attempt was to use distress ink on to paper, place die on top and then stamp outline in black and place paper on top….must be an easier way to use these stamps surely ? Of course there is … means I have to cut them out and add foam or stix 2 on top *sighs*

I honestly thought given they are Sheena Douglass I would be impressed but alas I am not.
