This weeks stamp on sale is the entire set Urban Texture Dots. You’ll find it at a really nice price in the webshop!

Here is some inspiration to show how much fun you can have with these stamps. I’ve only used monochrome paper and stamps to create my own patterned paper. It’s more fun to make your own papers! :)

The gold stars and the butterfly is also found in the webshop.

Here is the cute butterfly again together with a ribbon from the web shop.

I really like these bunny buddies, they are so cute! Here I wanted to creata a more “shabby” card so I’ve used a couple of Urban stamps. In the background you see Wavy Dots and there are also Blob 1 and Blob 2. “Hej!” means Hello.

For this card I wanted to use the bunny buddies to make a birthday card. So I used a small stamp with a package!

I love spring! Where I live, spring is coming along slowly. And I find it so inspiring to here the snow dripping from the roof. So I had to make a spring card and send to a friend, with lovely spring colours and the beautiful Three flowers from Filiona animalfriends. Unfortunally when I looked out the window this morning there was snow all over….again.

the text on the card says: Finally, spring is on it’s way!

Is it spring where you live?

Sometimes I get tired of my work and it feels like I’m doing the same thing over and over. So I try to do something different but usually it still looks the same, so this time I took a couple of steps back. When I started with scrapbooking I often got comments like simple and stylistically pure and I always thought that people found my layouts boring. But now I tried to do a simple page and I really like the result. But it’s hard to learn an old dog new tricks ;) so don’t be suprised if next week I’m showing you a page with lots of decos framing the photo :D

I used Urban Sky Flower and one of my favourite Journaling Lined Rectangle

Last summer one of my boys found these cool straws tucked away in the kitchen. Of course he had to try them and of course I had to take a photo ;) On this layout I used cool from Scrapwords and the beautiful Swirl long I also used it to stamp on the flowers next to the photo.

Here is a small taste of what you can do with a few Urban stamps, some mists/washes and acrylic paint. It is so much fun to play with these Urban stamps!

I have used the following stamps: Flying star small straight, Star swirl long, Flygande stjärna medium, Striped scallop journaling spot and Topplistan (swedish word stamp).

Since our son loves the movie Wall-E at the moment I wanted a space themed lay-out and the different star stamps from the Urban collection was perfect.

This weeks stamps are Girl eating melon, Dots, Swirl 4 and Swirl 2. You will find that they have a lower price than usual in the webshop. You don’t need to wait for a personal email confirmation before paying.

Here are a few examples of how to use these stamps.

I’ve used Dots on the background with a white stamp pad. I’ve also smudged some distress ink onto the white dots around the photo and used the same pad to stamp some swirls. Under the purple flower you see a Swirl 2 as well. Girl eating melon is colored with ProMarkers.

Girl eating melon colored with ProMarkers also on the card. This time the Dots are stamped in a color that match the paper to blend in more.
