The stampman (lady) on C&C Saturday 28th @12

Just a reminder that Jill will once again be demoing the fabulous Tracey Coates range of stamps along with some rather fabulous moonglow starter kits, amongst other items on this Saturdays Create & Craft (freeview ch36) at 12pm.

I've been busy all week creating some cards to show and nervously waiting to see if they were up to scratch and can thankfully say Jill likes them so I can breathe a sigh of relief! I wanted to aim for all corners really, from the newer cardmakers and stampers up to those more experienced so I used a variety of techniques at different skill levels. Some are PAS (Plain & Simple) and others far more complex.
You will be able to create similar ones with items from the show and very basic supplies, I didn't use anything fancy like a cuttlebug (starburst stains & Moonshadow inks look fab cuttlebug embossed!) I stuck pretty much to items on the show, well except iridescent sticky gems which I use by the gazzillion :D
I can give you a sneak peek of my offerings, I'll go through them individually over the next week or so as some are quite complex and require a bit of explaining lol!

These look great Vix, I can't wait to see them on the show.
It was the create and craft programme that I learned most of my card making, and The Stampman was my fav, I even have tapes of their show's that I recorded.
I loved the Kay Carley show's, her Butterfly stamp sheet's are lovely. I have a few of her set's that I want to make some card's for my blog when I feel up to it. Right now I am clearing my loft, It has needed doing for year's. I have lot's of nearly new thing's that I am taking to the hospice. I have also found load's of stuff up there that I can have a go at some altered art.

Thank's for your message, and good luck with the show, though you don't need it your great.

What stunning cards. Santa is bring the fairy stamps with him and you have provided so much inspiration I can't wait to get hold of them now.
The other sheets are gorgeous too, so much temptation.
I agree with you about Starburst stains on cuttlebugged card, it looks stunning.
Can't wait to see your cards on the programme.
