I've had an amazing time creating with the Artistic Stamper stamps (and the stencils too) over the last two years, and I'm so grateful to Jennie for her generosity and good humoured leadership, and for the chance to work with her fantastic designs. (My textured tags last time didn't use the words "With Thanks" by accident!) It's been a real privilege and pleasure to play alongside such a wonderful team of creative designers too, both past and present.
So, this final post is a chance to revisit some favourite projects created over the last two years. You'll notice some of my go-to stamps occurring more than once - the Katy Leitch flowers, the fabulous Journalling Words, the Gibson Girls, and of course my much-loved background staples - the Calligraphy Plates, the Mini Polka Dots - as well as many others. I hope you'll enjoy the little trip down Memory Lane... (You can of course click on the links if you need to see more!)
Some of the birds get to fly free, but will the woman ever break out of her cage? Pay a visit to see the tiny cracked hearts and the background layers.
One of my favourite layered backgrounds, stamping and embossing and paint and ink, behind the Encyclopedia Botanica flowers.
The new Flourish Background, a despondent Gibson Girl and an unusual colour palette for me - oh, and lots of crackle of course.
A simple tag with the recent Gardening stamps - but it made me happy to create and makes me happy to look at!
My first offering as a full-blown team member, and one of my earliest journalling efforts. Those Gibson Girls always seem to turn up when I'm in a melancholy mood.
Autumnal fun with a little book of leaves and a book box to keep it in - and the Dates and Journalling Words also put in an appearance.
Journalling words at the heart of this textural page too... (Is there such a thing as "too much crackle"? I'm going with "no"!)
... and they're the main feature on this gift wallet along with some lovely postal designs - pay a visit to see what happens when you flip over to the other side.
Another early creation - butterflies and Botanica, blue and brown - my obsessions were clear right from the start!
The piece that started it all off - my first creation as a Guest Designer, but it remains a favourite - worth a visit as it's not easy to capture in one photo!
The melancholy Gibson Girls start talking to you when you flip these tags over - and you should see the suitcase they travel in (well, tags are luggage labels, after all).
Another favourite background, and another play with Katy Leitch's fabulous flowers - and more shades of blue and brown. A creature of habit... who, me?!
I know you'll keep dropping by to enjoy the inspirational work of the rest of the team, and I'll see you out there in Craftyblogland I'm sure. Happy Crafting all!
