A New Challenge at Besties.


Good Morning friends.

Hope you have all had an enjoyable weekend.

Could anyone help me in my search for some Stemelglede stamps. I am after the 'Just a Note' set and cannot find any UK stockists. I would try and get some shipped - all searches say that Quixoticpaperie sell them but when I go on their site they no longer do them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I had a very enjoyable day on Saturday. I went to the Demonstration Day at The Hobby House. I met some lovely people and bought some gorgeous crafty goodies. The shop itself is fabulous but also lovely is the coffee shop (really scrummy food), the gardens and aviaries. I can recommend you visit if you have the chance.  Russ was a star waiting patiently in the coffee shop whilst I indulged in all things crafty. Wanting to make a day of our outing Russ asked if there was anywhere else I would like to go. Well I really really needed some more Magnolia Stamps and Pion Papers, so we headed of to Doncaster to the Which Craft store. Yet more gorgeous goodies. We ended our afternoon with a Steak at a local pub. A fabulous day I must say. So, onto business.

Today sees the start of a new challenge at the Besties Challenge Blog. The theme for this challenge is shaped cards so please hop over and have a look at the fabulous DT's work. I always love colouring these adorable images and it would be lovely to see your fabulous work over there. 
You can find these images here at Sherry Baldy's Etsy store and here at The Scrapbook Stamp Society. 

I have used Bella Blossom. It was the Pion papers which influenced the colour scheme for this card.


I have coloured Bella with Copics. 
Dress - C-0, C-2, C-3 and a touch of B60 
Hair - W-1, W-3, W-5
Skin E-11 and Dusky pink Pro Marker

Frantage - Shabby White and Aged Silver has been added around the image. 


The flowers are from WOC and the ribbon and heart are from my stash.
The Cameo and the pearl trimming are from The Hobby House.


The Sentiment is from the Vintage Birthday collection from Whimsy Stamp.

OMG Sharon - could this be any more delicious? I just LOVE all the details on this one - a real feast for the eyes. I haven't felt like crafting for months but this has made me giddy to craft again :D I love the frantage, the shape and the pretty delicate colours. You've made my day. Sorry that I can't help with the Stempelglede - I've been looking for a couple of stamps for ages and can't find them either :( Hugs, Jayne xx

Your card is so pretty Sharon, you have an amazing eye for details Mrs!
I recently bought the stamp set you are after and I had to get it from Australia! Stempleglade are readily available there and I didn't have a problem with shipping. Here is a link
