YAY!! Bank Holiday and a Stamp fairy Challenge…

Its Monday so its Stamp Fairy Challenge day and we have a great fun sketch for you to use this week.
I have twisted the sketch a ¼ of a turn left and have had fun playing with Lenny Bee & Donny Honey bear
on Shrink Plastic… I printed the images off on to copy paper 7 times bigger than you see them on the card as Shrink plastic shrinks by a 7th of its un shrunk size, then coloured it with my faithful distress inks and then got happy with my heat gun and shrank them down! tehheheee It really never ceases to amaze me how cool and fun shrink plastic is! almost like magic!
I don’t think I use it enough! Smile Ok so I have gone for a simple dotty ribbon and a plain ish flower and a 5p button Oh and added a craft-work cards sentiment this time and some faux pen stitching… Think that’s it!
Really hope you can come and play its great fun and Stamp fairy has lots of Freebies so why not have a peek

SO then what challenges shall I play today?… 
Ohhhh these are so mega cute! Gerda is soooo clever and so prolific she has made this lovely Fathers day set!
but I have to say that that are Brilliant all year round Digi’s
And this set that Compliments it….
Happy Monday all
hugs Samantha


  1. This is so sweet! Love the button and bow that you have used! Thanks for joining us at The One Stop Craft Challenge!

  2. Love the card and happy holiday!!! No holiday here :(

  3. cute card! love the layout! thanks for playing this weeks Bugaboo challenge at catch the bug!

  4. I love your card Samantha, I've tried using shrink plastic before and it always seems to curl up and then stick to whatever I use to try to flatten it again! Someone said use a cocktail stick to uncurl it and then the back of a wooden stamp to flatten it, but I still manage to get in a mess and waste it. But you've done a fab job, and I love those bright yellows and spotty ribbon.

  6. Hi Samantha! This is adorable! Love the shrink plastic! Love how the distress inks look on it! Thanks for leaving your comment on my blog.... just wanted you to know that I have to keep work verification on because I am on a nasty list from somewhere and I get spammed something awful. I have tried putting modification on but then my email is filled with it so I'm sorry that it's inconvenient... I know coz I am on a challenge team too and have to do it on almost every blog.... but for some there just isn't another option. Thanks for understanding! :) Have a great day!
