Hampton Art

Let’s eat Cheesecake!

Hello friends!

Today I have a card made with an old wood-mounted stamp by Hampton Art. The bird is cute but to be honest I really wanted the sentiment! Words to live by I say!

Anyway, Once I stamped and coloured the bird, I repurposed a Poppystamps tree stamp to create the branches for this little bird to stand on!

Favourite pumpkin

Happy Friyay!

This week’s Less is More challenge is ‘stamp layering’! I have quite a few layering sets – animals, trees, flowers, Christmas-themed…. but I decided to go with a Hampton Art autumn set I got a few weeks ago.

The pumpkin image only has 2 layers, so to add depth, I inked up the solid/base stamp with two shades of ink and then used a third shade for the second/detailed stamp. I masked off my orange pumpkin and stamped the detailed stamp a few times in grey. Love how nicely it turned out!

I added some colour to the scene using my Twinkling H2Os an stuck it behind a frame I cut from a base card.

To finish off the card, I added an embossed sentiment from a Simon Says Stamp set.

Time Flies by….

Hi everyone!

The theme for this week’s Casology challenge is ‘fly’ and here is my quick take.

To add a bit of interest to the base, I embossed a piece of white cardstock with a Spellbinders embossing folder. The main image is from Hampton Art – I’ve had this stamp for AGES, but I’ve rarely used it…. It’s one of my frequently used sayings so it’s quite weird that I haven’t used this stamp very much!

Anyway, thanks for stopping by!
