Craft Stamper - Take it, Make it Challenge

Hi everyone,

As it's a brand new month there is a brand new challenge over on the Craft Stamper Take it Make it blog and guess what.....I'm the sponsor this month with two sets of That's Crafty! stamps....cool huh?!

The rules are very simple, you can create absolutely anything you like just make sure you use a polymer or rubber stamp somewhere on your creation.

At it's soon Spring....believe it or not.....I just had to make a tag for this using the Rubber Dance bunny plus some more of their yummy stamps apart from the little flower stamp in the background which is actually a Craft Stamper freebie stamp from the last issue which I love.






Prizes up for grabs are these two gorgeous stamp sets from That's Crafty! which you may have seen me using quite a lot although the winner of course will get a new set of each ha ha.
Or you could be in with a chance to be featured in the magazine....YAY!!









Best of luck everyone

So you can choose either the theme OR the colours or you can use both! 

As always there's a fantastic prize on offer and you have all month to join in too and please remember that you don't have to use just Rubber Dance stamps to join in.

So for my creation I went with the theme of Circles and used this fab La Luna stamp from Rubber Dance. Oh yes and of course I just had to use Kraft card too ;)

New Stamps for That's Crafty!

Hi everyone,

I'm really thrilled to announce that I have another 2 set of stamps released today from That's Crafty! and one of them is based on my Fred ;)

I thought I'd make this card as it's freeeeeeeezing here today! The cat, hat and fishbone are all from one of the new sets. The sentiment and ice float are from Rubber Dance.





So back to the new stamp sets and I'll let Fred and his lovely assistant Saffie tell you all about them:

Oooh my designs look just like I told Mum to draw them for me

Come on ladies you really do need this stamp set of me and my friends in your life

Really? You've left me to model the dog stamps.......whoopee.....

Okay okay I'll try to look a bit happier but it will cost you big time in treats you know

So you think you're a superstar then do you because of your stamps.....well I'll soon bring you back down with a bump!!!








Hmmmm thank you so much to my lovely assistants for their 'help' although as you can see it went a bit wrong at the end as it always seems to with those two!

The stamps are now available for the cat set here  and the dog set here .


Hope you like them

New Rubber Dance Stamps!!!

Hi everyone,

I'm sooooooo happy to tell you all that I have a brand new super duper stamp release with Rubber Dance and I must say this set of stamps is really special to me as it's my original hand carved designs made into commercially available stamps....how cool is that?!






I really didn't think it could be done but here is the proof it can be! They are exactly the same as my original hand carved ones, how amazing is that?!

I know that a lot of you like the hand carved look but are not sure about having a go at it yourselves so now you don't have to as you can use these!!

Here's just some of my samples I made with the stamps...there are plenty more to follow ;)







All the details can be found on the Rubber Dance blog here  along with more samples and my lovely teamie Melina also has a new set of tree stamps out which match beautifully with the carved ones.

Oh and don't forget to use my code FreeShipDG when your order totals €15 or more for free shipping :)
