Pollycraft Stamps Available Now! And Some Cards Using Them...

Today I am sharing some cards which I've made with the new Pollycraft Stamps... Paula has brought the release date forward to today and I placed my order at 6.30 this morning so I didn't miss out lol!!

Last week I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to play with 2 of the stamps and here are the cards I made...

This card uses 'Christmas Pixies- Beauty' and I have coloured the little Pixie with Pro Markers and then used some Crystal Lacquers for a bit of shine, it takes a while to colour the holly but it's so therapeutic!!

My next card uses 'Sharing Christmas Sherbet - Candy Cane'. When I made this card the topper was originally on patterned paper, but it looked so busy that I decided to just place the topper on a plain card, I like this minimal look!

And my last card uses 'Christmas Pixies - Beauty' again... I stamped the Pixie with Adirondack ink and then did a colour wash over the image with a wet paint brush to soften the ink, I then filled in the image gently with Distress Inks for a subtle colour wash effect... this is my attempt at a Vintage style card!!

Thanks for looking once again... I've been scrapbooking this morning... haven't done any in ages so I'm really enjoying it!!

Love Becky xx

Wow Becky you were on the ball there, 6.30am I was still tucked up in bed lol!!!
All 3 cards are just gorgeous, all so different, my fave is the middle one, the mimimal look looks good.
Hope Dylan is looking forward to starting school soon, bless him. Hollie has been no problem at all, she has been staying and having her packed lunch this week and has been eating it all much to my surprise!
