I’ve made myself a new rubber stamp for a new home card I wanted to make for my friend. I thought I’d make a batch of them. I might have to have a rethink about the writing for future batches as I’m not entirely happy with it on any of them, but I do like the top part of the design.

I went to a craft show in Exeter yesterday called Craft4Crafters. It was really good and bought quite a few nice things to experiment with. I got a lovely pack of friendly plastic, a texture sheet, mini cutters (for when I get round to trying out my silver clay and UTEE), some rubber stamps, some card blanks, shimmer spray, embossing powder and more! I also did a great needle felt workshop and watched a very interesting Big Shot machine demonstration and have decided that is what I want to save up for now! I think it’s great that you can emboss with things other than the shop-bought folders. I have so many ideas now, but that will have to wait, I have plenty to play with for now!
