My Stamp on Vellum this time

This time Iv'e created an image using my own Stamp Designs on Vellum. I coloured the Vellum with Pro-Markers and embossed the vellum too to give definition.

Hope you like it.

Iv'e also created an image using Metal Foil. Unfortunately this didn't photograph very well due to the shiny nature of the metal sheet.

I used Ancient Page waterproof ink and this did seem to dry quite well on the metal - enough for me to emboss on the front then again on the back to emphasise the rocks and branches.

Hope you like them.

More Cards made from my Own Stamp Range

Here are some more Cards made from my own Range of Stamps. They are available to purchase - just email me and I will send along details.

See my website soon for details too.

Hope you like the images.
There will be more to come very soon. The images are so adaptable that you can use them on their own or build scenes with them as you can see from these cards.

I have used 6 stamps for this design. All landscape scene stamps which you can mix and match according to the look that you want to achieve.

Iv'e used some shrink plastic for this card. I stamped the tree with waterproof ink pads and coloured it with pro-markers. I then stamped the tree again onto some shrink plastic and added it as an embellishment at the bottom of the card.

DoCrafts Demo at Homefayre Tiverton Saturday 12th Feb.

Hi all

My next demo is at Homefayre in Tiverton on Saturday 12th Feb.
It will be both Jewellery and Card-Making so hope to see you all there.

There will be lots of DoCrafts bargains in store too along with other sales items. I'll be showing you new techniques for both jewellery and cards plus a few "extra's" - you will have to wait and see. Lets just say, if you love the die cuts and embossing then watch this space....or better still come to the demo on Saturday. I'll be using Craft Planet Felt among other things to make jewellery complimenting it with different ranges of Cousins beads.

If youv'e not tried beading before then come along and start a new hobby and grab yourself a bargain to boot.

See you there -Chris

Look what "Nikki-did-next" has done - A friend of mine, Nikki Smith has made up some cards using my new Stamp Designs. Nikki has done a fantastic job and has really adapted some of the Build a Landscape Designs in different ways to show how versatile the stamps are and how clever she is too. Nikki is a Designer with DoCrafts as well as an independent Designer in her own right.

Here are a few of the card images Nikki sent to me:

Thanks Nikki - hope to see more of your designs soon. Have fun with the stamps.
Take a look at Nikki's blog for more ideas. at Chris x

My New Stamp Designs have arrived

My New Stamp Designs have arrived. I'm so pleased with my new
stamp designs - Iv'e made up 3 cards using various stamps from my new
range, some to build landscape scenes and the Blue Card below was made using a single stamp of mine but the sentiment is from the DoCrafts Birdsong range of stamps. Simple but effective.
The stamps are available to purchase as a full A4 sheet set
of 27 various stamps including scenes, trees, grasses, birds and more. or as singles. Please contact me via email for detials at

The Landscape scenes are made using 5 different stamps on the Bridge Card and 2 on the Beach at Beer card. Iv'e used alcohol pens to colour the stamps. Keep a look out for more designs to come on here and on my website.

I hope you like the stamps. I will be using various
techniques to show you how to use the stamps for
different effects. Watch this space for
ideas and videos to come too....

Must dash now, off to play with my new toys.
