Beatrix Potter cute creatures and Fabric Heart
I've always loved the stories and illustrations of Beatrix Potter, I thought ages ago they would make lovely stamps, so I do of course have some in my stamp collection. I loved the film "Miss Potter",wonderfully set in the gorgeous Lake District.
These 2 stamps are clear stamps from Crafters Companion,priced at £2 each ,I think they are excellent value,and they stamp beautifully.
I've coloured with my markers and added chipboard swirls,a blingy bow and brown gems. The flower edge punch is a Martha Stewart .
My Mums Craft Shop : favourite song/movie (mines Miss Potter)
Crazy Challenge : Movie Inspired ( Miss Potter)
Cupcake Craft : in at the deep end , create some depth (I've used sticky pads to raise the images,chipboard shapes,a bow and gems)
totally gorjuss : bling
Diva's by design : anything but a card.
I have a bit of a thing for hearts around the home and I have made and bought quite a few,that are adorning various rooms in the house. This one is in the dining room hanging on my beloved oak dresser. Its made of printed cotton ,with a lovely fruit design,bought as a fat quarter. I drew a simple heart shape,stuffed with soft filling,machine stitched and added a twine hanger ,a strawberry button and some green ric rac.
I've been busy baking today, 12 ham and cheese muffins,they look lovely and a batch of fruit biscuits . The house smells yummy. I hope my hubby and son like them and eat them quickly,they are naturally skinny where as I have to be more prudent,though I do love my food.
happy card making,sewing, baking or what ever's your thing. janex
