Welcome to my Blog!

Hello Crafters! Crafting is my escape into my own little world full of ideas. Some of my best creations are produced in the early hours of the morning out of my craft cupboard …. hence ‘Open all hours’. Plus, as I have three lovely small children, often, evenings, weekends and late at night is the time when I can concentrate on making cards.

Stamp Addicts TV show - Post no.4

Hi everyone,

Here's another glimpse at some more cards I made for the Stamp Addicts TV show. I used an acetate window with rain drops on it, though I'm not sure you can see them in this photo. With the next card, I masked the girl and stamped her three times. I used one of the flower stamps that came with this set of unmounted stamps to add necklaces to two of them and flowers on the other girl's top. She also comes with the text 'love' and 'peace' as well as 'save the world', also the little sleeping bunny. Hope you're all having a fun weekend in this lovely sunshine. Michele x

Another peek at what to expect on the Stamp Addicts TV show on Monday....

Here's another peek at some of the cards I made for Monday's TV show. Again, I have used the rain girl, but this time she's wearing her rain hat. I added some ties on it with some thread. I used diamond glase on her raincoat and hat and wellies to add shine. The other one is the little football girl who also comes with assessories, drink bottle and football and whistle and text. I will post some more very soon. Bye for now, Michele

Stamp Addicts TV show - Sneaky peek! Plus Papertake Weekly Challenge


Hi everyone,

I've been a busy bee working on the cards for the next Stamp Addicts next TV show. It is being broadcast for the first time on Monday 6th April on Ideal World at 11.00am. They are brilliant stamps and I've had lots of fun working on these great designs by Judikins. Here's a couple of cards I made using some of the stamps. More of my cards with the other designs to follow shortly. Check out the other DT members, via the Purple Zone, who have made some great cards. The theme for this week's Papertake Weekly Challenge is circle, stamped image and ribbon, so I couldn't resist adding my first card in for this challenge as it fits the bill perfectly!
