Almost Time For Ally Pally

I hope everyone has a really enjoyable Easter holiday, I know I have!  I've had the past few days free to do nothing but stamp, stamp, stamp! I've been finishing up my samples for the Ally Pally Big Stamp and Scrapbooking show in London next weekend.  Particraft will have a stand there with several of our demonstrators showing the latest in stamping techniques and products. 

I've been having a bit of a play with the new Frilly Things stamp set and the Shoes and Handbags.  There is so much that you can do with these sets!  They just love to be used with punches and nestabilities, ribbons and all kinds of embellishments.  They make stamping so fun.  You can see that all three samples got a little touch of my Tim Holtz ruler with piercing holes.  I just love that thing!  What did I ever do without it!  I got a bit carried away with my new Martha Stewart punch too (Particraft doesn't carry these, though), but you can see how nice they look with these stamps.
I will be at the Ally Pally show the weekend of April 10th, but I have my own stand there.  So if you are coming to the show, please stop by at the Rubbernecker stand (right in front as you enter) and say hi.  I would love to be able to put a face to my blog followers!  I will be demoing all weekend using the new Distress ink colours among other things so if you want to see them at last, there is your chance!  All for now, Sue x

I wasn't quite sure what the fuss was about the TH ruler thingy, now I look at your various samples (new & old), I think I'm beginning to get it - subtle effect, but great on the right card :)

Have fun at Ally Pally.

Sue these cards are incredible. Love the first one...pink and green... my sorority colors. I don't have the TH piercing ruler, but I can see that I NEED one. Creative use of the MS around the page punch. I have a couple of those and now I have new ideas for using them. Have a blast at the show.

Lynne said...

Once again an excellent selection of samples. Colour, style, they have the lot. Would love to go to AP but live in Spain (where it's currently very cloudy and chilly) so it's a no go. One day maybe! Best wishes.

Lynne said...
