Crafty Individuals ~ February Challenge


The current theme for Crafy Individuals challenge is For A Friend. Lots of scope for this one. I've used one of my favourite stamps for this project CI - 342. The heart designs are so intricate and stamp beautifully. I also used TAP to transfer the design to fabric, which was then stitched onto some red velvet. ( A bargain from IKEA.) Then I made a little red velvet purse with some polka dot lining. Sorry about the picture the red was difficult to photograph.


I used the other heart in the stamp set to make this very simple card. The only embellishment is the white pearls around the edge. I used the Tim Holtz cabinet card die to make the card. You can't really see in this photo, but the stamped image is inside the card.


Please do pop over to the Crafty Individuals Blog for lots of inspiration and it would be great if you could come and join the challenge this month.

Thanks again for all the lovely comments you are leaving, I so enjoy reading them.

Take care and Happy Crafting xxx
