Sunday Stamping...

Happy Sunday,

I realised I hadn't shared any of the cards I have made using the stamps to die for that match the pacific ocean collection.  I thought therefore I should share this card made using the Molly Frames and tags die and the ribbon rose matching stamp.

I will be shooting some youtube videos on how to use the stamps to die for later this month so if you want to know how to make this and other arts with the stamps I'll let you know as soon as they are ready!

I coloured the stamp using the amazing Graphmaster alcohol markers that Lisa Horton has been demoing.  I attended a class with her on Wednesday and learnt some great techniques expect more colouring in the future!



  1. Morning John, love the simplicity of this card the stamp says it all. Looking forward to watch you on Youtube.

  2. Morning John,
    Love this card, it's just right. Love the colours you have used too.
    Well I had a blitz yesterday evening, did a batch of die cutting and stamping just simple ones and then made them into 31 Christmas cards. Almost finished putting a little bit of bling on them. Next batch later today then onto the special ones.
    Looking forward to your YouTube videos.

  3. Very pretty card. I love the stamps to die for but I'm never happy with my colouring, so look forward to your videos!

    Happy crafting.
