More Tatty Cards

I've been asked to show more of my Tatty Button cards on my blog and I'm always willing to help where I can.

This card was fun to make,I used one of the new nesties to make the toadstool pyramage and then decided to find my sewing equipment to add an extra effect.The holes were first made using pricking tool, then using black cotton thread carefully stitched through.Then of course I had to add buttons,at last I have a use for all those buttons I brought in my early crafting years.

Just love those Distress Inks and this card proves you can use them with the Tatty stamps.Colour used was walnut stain and the raindrops were made with Crystal Lacquer.

More samples to follow in the next few days,at the moment I'm busy getting ready for the Glasgow show and yes Tatty will be travelling up north with me.

Tatty Button Launch

Day 1 of the trade show is now over,chance to relax but need to go bed soon as I will have to get up early for another day there.
Today we launched our Tatty Button range of stamps and CD,it's great to show what I've been working on for the past few weeks.She is character with a story behind her,which gives a plenty of scope for more stamps and CDs.But first here are some cards made using the stamps;

Tatty on the swing was the first one I ever made with this range,she was stamped and embossed then painted with Cosmic Shimmer watercolours.The shape I stamped on was cut out using one of the new Spellbinder dies.Just love their new range of dies launched at the Winter CHA.I was very lucky to get to play with these before they were launched here.Look out for more designs on here as I show you other Tatty samples.
Hopefully there will be another post tomorrow as I think I better go bed now.
