Not Just for Christmas!
These stylish "Creative Expressions" Christmas stamps by Sam Poole are certainly not just for Christmas! Having been on a whistle stop tour over the last couple of weeks, I totally forgot to make my brother's anniversary card....realised that I was a week overdue! Plus he lives in America so that's probably another week overdue by the time his card arrives! Feeling very guilty!
This card started as a Coke can...I annealed it in the flame on my gas hob to get the pattena and then embossed and pierced it. The beads are coke can too..just cut into strips and rolled up.
I finished the card off by stamping the swirly flourish around the edge.
I'm entering this into 4 challenges:
"House of Gilli - Monochrome"
"Crafty Cardmakers - Recycle"
"Critter Sketch Challenge - Monochrome"
"My Partner in Crime - Use any Freebie"
For this last one...my stamp was "free" as I am on the design team for Creative Expressions and of course the coke can was recycled.
