Gingersnaps - Charming

You know how sometimes a stamp catches your eye and just demands to be given a home and ink?   Well this new Hero Arts one did that with me.  A lot of other folk were pretty taken with it as well, the Stampman sold out of the first batch but luckly were able to get more.

The main image is stamped in expresso and then given a cover of clear ep.   The paper was torn around the shape of the stamped image.   A Craft Stamper cover stamp was used on the base card and the vellum mat.   Gypsium from the local cake crafters shop (they also sell moulds and cookie cutters so useful with clay and FP)   A little raffia bow with two little metal charms hung from it, and a small sprig of gypsium tucked in above it.   I'm really rather pleased with how this one came out.

Needing an excuse to make the card, of course, this week's Ginger spicy supply challenge gave me one with this week's which is to use a charm or charms in your work.   So new stamp and a good enough reason it had to be done LOL

  3. Glad it had to be done cos it's fabulous Zoe. Never thought of looking in a cake crafters shop (dont think there is one round here). Great design and colours.
    You asked what stamp I used on my little winged heart tin - it was from Invoke (can't remember the set name tho).
