Hi, Jo here again… is your weekend going?

It is a bit grey and dark here today in Cheshire. Karl and me have just taken Tess for a long walk, but oh it was so muddy across the fields. We left home with a yellow Labrador but came home with a black one.
On to things of a crafty nature, today I am going to share some projects with you that have been made from the Rococo Stamp set.
This first piece is one of the frames that I made for the CHA show.
A light coat of Gesso, acrylic paint and then some stamping also some FlitterGlu and Flakes.
A light sanding to give a distressed look and job done. These do make really lovely presents….if you haven’t had a go ……now is your chance… won’t regret it….
Now to a couple of cards…..
These are great for cards for men and I do love the little bird….it is one of those stamps that I find myself using again and again….
That’s all from me today thanks for looking and keep your eyes on our blog… exciting news coming soon…..shhh…..shhh….( keep it between us two!!!!)
Hugs, Jo. X

  1. Hi Jo,
    Beautiful projects. I love your decorated frame, very striking colour. This set of stamps is so useful, and you’re right, the little bird is so ‘tweet’ (sorry!!) xx

  2. What is the best weight of card to use when applying Flitter Glu. I find the glue takes the surface of the card off when I remove the stamp. Thank you

      • Also I should have reminded you to Kiss Stamp when using the FlitterGlu, if you press the stamp down for too long this can sometimes make the paper stick and tear…x

  3. I got to see your frame in person, the picture does not do it justice! Mind you photos of flaked stuff never look as impressive as they are in real life, you cant capture all the colours and shine on a photo,

  5. How do you cut out the Rococo frame? Are you doing it by hand?

    • Hi Barbara, we have a very clever M.D.F. Man who makes the frames for us…
