Stamp yourself Silly ....................
It was Keryns turn to set the dares over at Daring Card Makers this week, and boy what a good one. Keryns plan was to get us to stamp with a difference. She wanted us to create a card using stamping, but not using conventional commercial stamps hmmm, surprisingly inspiration hit instantly and off i went....

Wheelie Great Birthday



For this one I inked up the Wheels of the other halfs remote control car (ssshhh!) and drive it over the paper to create a typre track border. I then used a offcut of black leather I had laying about. On that I mounted a plain piece of card bordered with checked ribbon with my Wheelie Birthday greeting on it. I then 34 mounted a steering wheel keyring I got when I brought my car, Geoffery.

Tiny Package



This one is my favourite out of my two. My other half is forever making "baby footprints" using his hand on steamed up windows so I made him make me one too. He curled his hand, dipped it in pink ink and stamped onto the paper, then used his little finger to stamp toes. I then mounted that on flowery pink rob and bob studio paper. I used a black rub on greeting to a piece of white card and attached it behing a pink slide mount, and created a double layered flower using blooms from Sarahs Cards and a pink mini brad. I then attached both of them onto a piece of yummy pink American Crafts ribbon which I attached to the side of the card.

Dont forget to get yourself over to Daring Card Makers to see other creations by the Design team. Did you know if you check out their individual blogs there are normally more detailed information about each one?

Till next week bloggers xxx

I think the car card is just brilliant! I could try some tyre tracks for hubby's birthday - though I know the first thing he'd ask is "which car did you use?" in accusatory manner - and he'd then be off to check I'd cleaned them perfectly....
