Tuesday Taggers - Classic Black and White

I was so pleased to see this combo come up as its one I love. I think it always looks classy! So here Ive done a craft stamper fest - a set of 3 atcs using the freebie stamps off the magazine. The middle one is this months free stamp - wow what a stunner! The right hand stamp I have used 2 stamps on- stamping the oriental flower onto parchment then using a ball tool on the back to give the whiteness and dimension. The left one I have stamped and embossed in white the same stamp as the main image. The middle atc has papermania paper on it and the end one is die cut with a view I think. Ribbon, lace and other bits and bobs from stash!

I just love the magazine and devour every detail when it pops through my door and of course Kate Crane is also running an art journalling article over 3 issues which is enticing me to start before I even get on the art journalling weekend at Art from the Heart! My gorgeous pal Georgina has bought me a blank Journal for Christmas which is begging to be started so as I have days off coming up I think I may decorate the front and backs following Kates clear tutorial!
Here is another project that jumped out at me - especially for the school bazaar at Christmas a lovely small gift for children to buy for mums, granny's etc. Of course the one in craft stamper is much more arty and is designed by the talented Joanne Wardle

but I thought staying with the black and white theme - it was simple to do and not too time consuming so my brother is on the look out for electric tealights now so i can get to work! Black paper punched with martha Stewart punch - ribbon from stash sentiment and oval punches from stampin up available here
My fabulous Team Mates have delievered the goods yet again and produced some gorgeous projects - they are really such a talented bunch! Hop on over to Tuesday Taggers and take a peek!
Hope the New year has begun well for you and you are managing to stay warm in this artic weather!

  13. Love the black and white atcs. If you are in the area I suspect you are ( from some of your comments !) they had the tea lights at Yorkshire Trading in Ripon and they also sell them at Wilkinsons at Clifton Moor or Leeds .I was searching for them for a project before Christmas.

  14. These are wonderful Janet. I love the new craft stamper freeby but the other two left me unimpressed. You have made them into something beautiful to behold, you clever gal!
