Relics & Artifacts with That’s Crafty … A Collaboration

Hello
The collaboration between Relics & Artifacts and That’s Crafty is very special indeed, viewing the inspirational artwork of established artists as they combine R&As with That’s Crafty surfaces/stencils, etc.  It’s a thrill to be a participant of the collaboration with two projects, Sandra and her Ambassadors and Laura, requested I make a project for both of them.
Today, I am sharing my first project at the Muse.  When I was working on this project, I paused because it was a significant moment for me.  Here I happened to be, working on a project with products from two companies, whose products I genuinely adore and believe in and have been combining for a wee while now.  Add to that, I was inking up one of my stamp Affirmations.  For someone who stumbled into stamping, purely looking for another hobby, I could never have imagined where that stumble would lead to.

The complete project, with inspiration can be seen here, at the Muse.

Thank You to those of you who are visiting the two daily blog posts and remember, there are two prizes available.

This journal was one of my most special projects made, so far, this year. I am already looking forward to working on another journal and will definitely, at some time, take the step of actually journaling, as that will be a huge step for me.
This journal was certainly made all the more special for featuring my Affirmations.
Thank you so much for your visit today.

Her Artful Heart – TC16april

Hello
Last week, over at That’s Crafty, I said I would be sharing Part II of my journal but due to Gremlins, it is this post I am sharing instead.
This project features one of the Character Constructions stamps available from That’s Crafty, Inner Child No. 5.   The heart paper doll is the largest stamp from the set but I also included some of the other stamps.
That’s Crafty are the only U.K. stockists of Character Constructions stamps, stocking selected stamps.  If you are interested in any Character Constructions stamps that do not appear on the That’s Crafty website,  Laura Holland will welcome your enquiries.  To view the complete catalogue of Character Constructions stamps, visit HERE.
All details for this project can be viewed HERE.

The Lone Tree

Hello
Sharing another sample, made recently for Crafty Individuals for HOCHANDA.
If you are interested in sourcing Crafty Individuals tree stamps, then please visit HERE.
This sample sees a That’s Crafty large, white/greyboard tag as the substrate.  They are invaluable substrates because you can throw so much media at them, you have no idea how much I saturated this tag when working with the Infusions!

This tag features a partially inked stamp from CI-287
Fortunately for me, there was a mishap, no one’s fault, the e-mail from Jean requesting samples was in my junk folder and it had been overlooked for some time before a tidying up session when I spotted it.  This meant that time was against me for making samples so you can imagine how thankful I was to have a stash of book pages, found papers, calico, etc that had previously been stained with Infusions.  This is why I always stain in batches because ultimately it is a timesaver when time is tight.
The book page had been stained too enthusiastically with Infusions so I flipped it over to stamp on the rear where there were some marks from the Rusty Car Infusions.

We were allowed to work with the crackle stamp on our samples, it came in useful for adding some stamped texture to some of the papers around the tree focal.

My Story, I Will Journal (Part I)

Hello
This week, over at the That’s Crafty blog, I am sharing the journal which I made as a recent sample for That’s Crafty’s HOCHANDA shows.
This was a special project to work on, the first time I have worked on a completed journal and my first project featuring my stamps, Lynne’s Affirmations which have been produced by That’s Crafty.
coverblog
It is a photo heavy blog post HERE and I also share the process for creating this journal and what inspired the stamps.

We have had enquiries from residents of the U.S.A. asking about shipping costs for the stamps to the U.S.  Please, email That’s Crafty with your enquiries or contact me and I contact Laura Holland on your behalf.  The shipping costs noted on the site are not reflective of the true shipping costs of the stamps to the U.S.A.
Many thanks for your time.

The Trees

Hello
Sharing another sample made for Crafty Individuals (for HOCHANDA show).
This sample, which is a substrate of a That’s Crafty white/greyboard panel, sees me using one of Crafty Individuals new stamps,CI-460
cisampletwophotoonelynne
The same trees were stamped onto Infusions stained book pages twice, tearing into panels, with a scrap piece of stained book text in the centre, with that lovely Whispers in the Wind stamp from CI-209.
That lovely piece of stylised leaf applique is a piece cut from beautiful lace panel gifted to me by my friend Sharon.  I stained it with Infusions. The other textiles were also stained, they look as though it could be Rusty Car they were stained with.

A scribbled, doodled border around the book page panel.

Book pages have been a constant for me, really since I started stamping.  Even with this detailed stamp, the text peeks through and I so love the extra layer that brings to a project.
cisampletwophotofivelynne
Literally, a scrap of corrugated cardboard – no scrappy piece is safe from my grasp!

I still have a few more of samples made for Crafty Individuals HOCHANDA show and will share them over the coming weeks.
Thank you, again, for your time visiting here.
