Chrysanthemum skull, fuchsia and backgrounds.

Hi there, and thank you for stopping by. Today sees Stamp Addicts back on tv and these are some of my samples I’ve made for the show. You’ll also find these on Instagram @d_e_crafts so I hope you’ll follow my creativity and leave a message!

Chrysanthemum skull

The chrysanthemum skull rubber stamp is a deeply etched and as you’ll see it’s very detailed. I’ve used distress inks here to watercolour this image and have added a second layer which is raised as you’ll see below.

In the background you’ll also see the background which is “porcelain”, stamped in black onto grey water-coloured ink.

Another sample with the porcelain background is this one:

The other stamp for this show is a fuchsia and this one also features another background “papyrus”. For this image I’ve cut several layers of the flower and decoupaged it up to give it some depth.

The last card below also uses the papyrus background as well as some keys which are also Stamp Addicts rubber stamps. Instead of stamping the papyrus as one whole background this time I’ve inked a section and used that section to fill the card from. This gives a more random pattern.

I hope you liked the stamps and the samples. Let me know if you have any questions and I’m happy to let you know what I’ve used and answer any questions.

Thanks for stopping by!


Skully lovers and gothic border

Hi there, I wanted to write a blog post to show you some of the latest stamps I was working with from Stamp Addicts. These were featured in their latest tv show on 29th March 2022 on Create and Craft.

This first card is using “gothic border” which I’ve placed back to back as a focal point down the card. It’s stamped with 3 distress oxide inks to give some interest and variation in colour so that it wasn’t so ‘flat’.

Again using the gothic border we have a simply edged card that would work for a wedding or an anniversary. simple but classy.

Another way of using the border allows you to create a square and looks like it could be corners rather than a border.

Moving on to the Skully lovers I’ve also used the gothic border in the background building up a stamped backdrop with distress oxide inks. I’ve then fussy cut the skulls and flowers as the facial image and raised and shaped this on silicone glue.

And on the inner panel I’ve stamped the border randomly to coordinate.

The image below is a little more dark and looks like it’s got a lace touch to the edges by using the top of the gothic border.

Last but not least, a card using the skully lovers coloured with pencils, mounted onto a black and white rose background put though a heart embossing folder and tinted with red ink.

Let me know what you think and hopefully this has given you some inspiration.
