One of the things I am really fond of at the moment are Claudine Melmuth's layering stamps, it has taken me a little while to fine the best method to apply the paid to the foam stamp but I think I have it now - its the Tim Holtz blending tool - works really well. Tried just putting the paint on th my craft sheet but had difficulty regulating the amount of paint that went on to the stamp. So here are a couple of my little pieces so far - I dont think it will be long before I invest in a flower one too!!!!!

Die Cuts Galore, I am calling this one, lots of Alterations Dies used, canvas and mountboard painted with Claudine Hellmuth paints and Adirondack dabbers, stamping and shrink plastic, I dont think I could have got any more on this tag. Hope you like.

Something floral for Mothers Day. Well here is my contribution. It is actually a box within a card so inside the card is a very smart box to take a little present. The card was made with all my love for my mum, although she is no longer with me I think about her often.

Well here is my contribution to the challenge. Hope you like it. I love making these rosettes, I made our Christmas Crackers using this rosette as decoration, everybody was most impressed.
They are so easy when you get going.

This is my contribution to the Artistic Stamper Sunday Challenge. Just getting into these blog challenges. Here I have used a combination of things, a few leftover grunge letters from my Tim Holtz day, coloured with acrylic paints. The tag is made from mountboard, with a background crackle effect also with acrylic paints and Sheena Douglass inspired daisies., again with acrylic paints. A little freebie craft stamper butterfly stamp completes the picture.
