Dimension Stamps - Sew Creative

Good evening everyone, this must be a record for me two posts in 2 days. I wanted to just show you a concertina book i made for Roy from Dimensions Stamps, a friend of mine took a picture of the book before we sent our designs, and i have only just got the pictures.  This is one of my favourite sets from Dimension Stamps, and i can see me using it quite a lot, especially with materials as i have used below.

Christmas Cards

Good evening, just wanted to share with you a couple of cards I made for our Christmas classes.  I never seem to get much time to blog these days, there is always something i have got to catch up with, but I will try and post and blog more often. 


The first card was made using a Little Claire stamp, I think this stamp is so cute. The second card is a LOTV stamp i bought from Port Sunlight Stamp Festival in October.

Bit late posting tonight, but if i dont post now, who know when i will get round to it.  I have a couple of cards to share with you tonight, we made them a while ago on one of our workshops.  The first card is using the Tim Holtz manequin die, i have used various stamps on this card.  My second card we made on a grid card class, the flower stamp on the right is a Dimension Stamp, and was stamped with the stampin up white ink pad.  I am not too sure of the Company of the other two stamps, the key is a Marianne Die.

Think its time for bed now before i fall asleep over my laptop, will try and post again soon.

Good evening, I've been having a tidy out today and found a couple of cards on my camera which I forgot to put on my blog, so before i forget again, thought I would just share them with you.
Both cards have been made using 'Dimension Stamps' stamps.  The wedding card was made using four stamps from the set, there are alot more stamps in the set.  The clock card I actually stamped about three times, then punched them out with my square punch, and arranged them randomly on the card.

Sorry about the photo of the cake card think i must have been drunk when i took that one, lol.

I am a little late posting tonight, i have had a busy day, went to pick up my new bike, but when i got it home i noticed that the forks were a different colour to the rest of the bike so i had to take it back, they are getting me another one for Friday.
As promised here is the other book we made  last week on our class.  I have used the Tim Holtz die to cut out the manequins,  i'm not too sure of the make of the manequin stamps i've used as i got them from the Stamp show at Port Sunlight about a year ago.

Good morning, and what a wet one it is here, good excuse though to stay in an update my blog.  I have been quite busy over the last two weeks.  We had a workshop last Saturday, i made two books with my ladies. I enjoyed making the books we made, it was a nice change from making cards. The first book we made we used punches and George Cricut hearts, this little book can be used for a wedding gift or for an anniversary.

I will post the other book we made hopefully tomorrow.  Bye for now.

Hello everyone, just wanted to share a couple of cards we made on our class yesterday.  The concertina cards has been made using Dimension Stamps stamps, i have made a variety of cards with this set it is very versatile.  I have also used a Nellie Snellen stamp called Sweet cowgirl, she is so sweet.  My last card was made using one of the LOTV stamps, i'm not sure what the stamp is called.

Good evening, it has been a miserable day here, i dont think it has stopped raining all day, it's like winter outside. I have got a couple of cards to share with you. Roy from Dimension Stamps was on Create and Craft today showing some of their new stamps, and a few of my designs were shown. It was nice to see the other design team cards, they had some beautiful designs. My first card I have used distress inks to colour my card, but first I stamped the Rose and the Larkspur flower with Versamark then embossed them with white embossing powder, I then dabbed a couple of distress inks onto a plastic sheet then spritzed them with water, then swished the images across the wet ink to pick up the colours. When the images were dry I cut them out using a square punch, and arranged them in a random pattern. For my second card I stamped the Poppy stamp onto the bottom of a piece of bazzil card with black memento, I then used bleach to take the colour out of the card inside of the poppy flower.

Two more class cards

Hello again, just wanted to share with you two more cards we made on a class. Both cards are made using LOTV stamps, the baby card is one I made for my friends daughter who had a baby boy. On the class I also made packs up in pink, so anyone who wanted to could make a baby girl card.
Hope everyone has a good evening, bye for now.
Good morning, I hope the weather doesn't take a turn for the worse, bit cloudy here at the moment. I have made another card using the horse and carriage stamp, but this time I have made it into a Jubilee celebration card.
I am hoping to post a couple more cards later on this afternoon if I get time. Hope everyone enjoys the celebration weekend.

Class Cards

Good evening everyone, were does the time go, i've only just gotten round to taking photos of some of my class cards, we made last week. The first card has been made with one of Dimension Stamps, set 'Petal Passion'. I think this is a lovely set, i only used 2 of the stamps from the set, but there are about 10 more on it, they stamp beautifully. My second card was also made using two of 'Dimension stamps'. The horse and carriage, is very versatile, i have used it as a wedding carriage, but it could also be for a little girls fairytale and princess card. I only used the top part of the certificate of marriage stamp, you can see the whole of the stamp on Dimensions web page www.dimensionstamps.com.
I still have two more cards to post hopefully will post them tomorrow.

Two more inchie cards

Good afternoon, just wanted to share another two cards with you that i have made. I love this technique of using your square punched and background papers to make grid cards. For the first card i used a pink flowery background paper and stamped wild flower images, i then punched with one of my square punches, i also used an old hero arts text stamp i found in one of my boxes. I also stamped an Inkylicious butterfly with Versamark, then embossed with white powder, and placed this over the text. My other card i used distress inks to colour my card, then stamped over, and cut out again with three different square punches.

I have a couple of cards to share with you, they are cards i took photos of and forgot all about. The little owl card is a stampin up punch i bought, i had it for about 6 months but never got round to using it. he bunting i made using a triangle punch and the EK Sucess scallop punch. My other card is a 'Dimension Stamps' stamp, i love this stamp it is a back to back stamp, i have stamped the front and the back of the stamp and joined them together using a piece of ribbon and place them in the centre of an apperture card. We had a class yesterday, so i will try and take some photos of the cards i made, and hopefully i will be able share them with you tomorrow. Hope you all have a good day.

Good morning everyone, weather not too bad here at the moment, but that could change. I have two more cards to share with you which i made for a class. Two different style of cards, the card with the Mice on is a Penny Black stamp which i have had for a number of years. For the the second card i used an assortment of stamps by Inkylicious,i stamped the images on to white card stock then spritzed the image with with water, then heat set the image with a heat gun, after it was dry we then over stamped with black memento ink. I enjoyed this technique and was pleased with the finished card. I will hopefully be back with more cards in the next couple of days. Thanks for looking have a nice day.

What a miserable wet day we have had here today, doesn't look like it is going to get any better. Just want to share two more cards with you today, the first one is another another card made with a stamp from 'Dimension Stamps'. I stamped the flowers on to a piece of background paper, then inked around the edges with black dye based ink with a sponge. The flower was lightly coloured in with SU white Whisper White craft ink, i stamped the craft card with another text stamp from Dimension Stamps, not sure of the name of the stamps, but you can find them on their website.

My second card has been made using one of the Memory Box dies, this is a card we made on our workshop last week.

A selection of class cards

Good evening, it has been a lovely bright day here, a little bit cool in that wind, but its nice to see the sun shining. I just thought i would share a couple of the cards we made on Saturday's class. This first card is by Dimension Stamps, 'Luscious Lily'. The Lily was stamped onto a white tag, and then we applied the ink using the 'Direct to Paper' technique, this is one of my favourite techniques. All the ladies tags looked so different, some ladies used alot of pressure when applying the ink to the tags, and others did theirs more lightly, they all looked lovely.

The second card is one of the LOTV stamps, i couldn't decide whether to put a Birthday greeting on this card, but i thought it could also be used as a wedding card, so i left it blank for the ladies to decide which they would prefer. Hope you all have a nice evening, will try and post a couple more cards in a day or so.
