We Always Think We’ll Have TIME…

Hi there!

Jane Tyrrell is here on the blog today sharing a rather special project she made with our NEW stamps…

Good morning

The new stamp sets really are awesome! They are larger sets, A5 size, and there is so much you can do with them.
I was like a kid in a sweetie shop, as I had so many ideas, when my sets arrived.

Somewhere in Time

Ahead of Our Time

I received the new stamps hush/hush a couple of weeks ago to make some samples with and today I am sharing my first project.

I made myself some very “cosmic” backgrounds using Distress Oxide inks on black card

I was aiming to make a galaxy with my inks.

I die cut 4 panels using my ancient but much loved Sizzix accordion die and added some stamping around the edges using the cogs and spring stamp which I gold embossed.

I stamped and decorated each panel centre. These words were white embossed.

I loved adding hands to the time swirl from the Ahead of time set..I fussy cut and embossed the falling man and woman; he is just about holding on to time ? but I think she has slipped into the vortex….I wonder if there is a black hole out there…?

I made myself some die cut cogs too which I altered with mixed media products and finished my card with these great quotes from the Somewhere in Time set.

and here is the big reveal of my Time accordion card…

As a member of their Design Team I get a real buzz seeing my work on television. I made 2 other “Time” projects for the show, which I will be sharing very soon. I was waving to them on TV.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and for all the very kind comments that you take the “Time” to leave…pun intended ? I hope you got a chance to see the show..or set up your recorders to watch at your convenience. You can still watch on ‘catch up‘ over on the Create and Craft website… but today is your last chance! (You need to search for the June 9th shows).

Back soon.
Bye for now,
