Craft Stamper September TIMI Reminder - Take a stamp

Good morning, hope today finds you well.  It's Craft Stamper TIMI challenge reminder time, over on the blog we have some more inspiration for you, and this month's theme is an easy one - take a stamp!  

We would love to see your stamped creations, you can check out the rules here, there aren't too many, I promise!

Our sponsor this month is:
The Prize: Stamp Plate The Birds and The Blooms (pic below) PLUS two stencils!
STAMPlorations have also been incredibly generous and have supplied a coupon code for Craft Stamper challenge players to take advantage of free shipping from the store! The code is: CSTAKEITMAKEIT and is good for free shipping on orders over $20 (£12.90). The coupon will work all through September, and can be combined with any other STAMPlorations coupon.


My inspiration is using Indigoblu's brand new 'Clearly' stamp set, Triple Bauble.  These are excellent quality clear polymer stamps, designed by Lauren White for Indigoblu.  As you can see it's billed as a christmas stamp, but so versatile - lollipops or balloons I see!  


It's a two part stamp, you stamp the plain outline of the bauble in ink, and then colour it as you wish, and then stamp the second scribbly outline, in flitterglu, and you can add megaflakes, or glitter, it gives a lovely distressed outline.  Of course you could use ink for both parts, but the flakes show up so well.

I also used the scribbly outline to make a border around the card in megaflakes, I love the circles!

It's distressed and layered onto similar coloured card, and onto a card blank.

We'd love to see your designs, you can enter HERE.  

Don't forget to check out the Design team's individual blog's to check out how they made their projects too :)

Bye for now, have fun creating,

Best Wishes,
Nikki.

If moth's like light so much, why don't they come out in the day?
