Freebie stamps.....

I don't normally buy many craft magazines but Jill over at Jill Quills emailed to say that Creative Stamping this month were giving away a full A4 sheet of Vintage types stamps....so I went hop foot down to my nearest stockist  and picked up a copy.
Jill was right there are some lovely stamps on the sheet so today I had to have a quick play and this is what a came up with using just 3 stamps from the sheet.
 Coloured my main image with Copics then did some paper piecing which I love doing and then mounted her onto a Spellbinders Floral Oval die. 
Backing papers are from S.U....after using the Memory Box Circle border die I decided I couldn't throw away all those little  waste circles from the die so used them to make faux brads with. 
Isn't it lovely to see the sunshine...it makes you feel so much better..


Thanks for popping by...

I just had to smile at you saving all those circles from that great new die (just the sort of thing I would do). I like the paper piecing you've done here and I've actually stamped one of the images with the same thing in mind - great minds think alike!!

Beautiful! I love these colors together. Your paper piecing looks great - so subtle. So clever of you to use the dots - they really look good. Now you have my mind churning and I will have to save my circles. Lovely card Anne.
