Dream Valley Challenge #8 - Stamp Something

Hi all, this post was meant to go out on Sunday, but silly me saved it as a draft instead of scheduling it (rolls eyes).

Here we are with another challenge at Dream Valley, and this time the theme is to Stamp Something, so get those rubber and clear stamps out and show us what you can make. No digi stamps, please, hand stamped creations only.

We have 2 sponsors this time: Papermaze and Funky Kits, and the fab prizes on offer this fortnight are £10 to spend at Papermaze, and a stamp from Funky Kits.....nice, eh?

This is what I made as my DT project: I'd had some Tim Holtz stamps for over a year and they had yet to be inked up (shame on me!) so this seemed the ideal time to get them out and play with them. I made some sentiment tags to use on future cards by aging some postal tags with distress inks and just stamping on top with black archival ink. Simples!

Don't forget to check out my teamies creations too, they are really gorgeous.

We are also having a DT call, so if you fancy joining in the fun, pop over to the main challenge blog, where you'll find details.

Have a good week everyone, and happy crafting!
