Sew Simple Samples

 Here are the samples for this months workshop at Sew Simple in Taverham.  We will be using the Portabello Road stamp sets to create bunting and cards.  Once the Jubilee and the Olympics are over these stamps are still going to be useful. They are great for scrap booking, perfectly themed for all your Jubilee party photos and for the Olympics, if you are lucky enough to get there.
After this summers celebrations are over these stamps will be good for making male themed birthday cards. With a London bus, Big Ben tower, a taxi and a VW camper van it has lots to offer.

The bunting comes ready cut in packs of either all white or a mix of red, white and blue. I have used the stamps in a random collage type effect, embossing the white images on the coloured card to maintain the red, white and blue theme. Stamping red and blue on coloured card proved a little tricky, I had to try several inks to see which gave the best cover, I settled on Memento. The crowns have been embossed in gold on all three colours.
The bunting is great for children to make, my son was my willing assistant in making up these. I have a feeling we'll be 'volunteered' at school to make some more!
It's a short post today, were does all the time go? Lots more things to make and do. Happy Crafting!!
