The Story Behind The Mask

Good Evening! Wow it has been nearly 2 weeks since we have blogged… so sorry!

We have been so busy finalising NEW stamp and stencil designs, and orders have been incredible too! There are only so many hours in the day so something had to give… hopefully though, if you are a member of our Facebook group, you will have already seen some of the latest cards and projects our Design Team have created. If not, come and join us there… and show us what you have created with our stamps and stencils too!

This evening Jane Tyrrell is here on the blog sharing an awesome card she created with some brilliant stamps…

The card I am sharing today uses the fab Maskerade stamp set from the February 2018 release. I made it for Craft Stamper’s March edition, you might have spotted it in print.. and I can now share a few details.

I wanted a piece of inky card for the background and used these distress colours. I stitched round the outside with my sewiing machine.

I stamped the happy mask on gold and the sad on cream card and fussy cut them out.

I decided to make mine into “real” masks using ribbons and eyelets.

And then put together my card..

And if you are interested to know which “story” is behind my masks they are pages from Charles Dicken’s “A tale of two cities”.  My Hb gave me an old copy he no longer needed and I use it lots in my crafting.

Here are some close ups.

and one last shot

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Bye for now,
