I live in leafy Sussex but am a northerner at heart. I enjoy the three S's - stamping, scrapbooking and stitching. I love creating and it can be clean and simple or inky and painty. I hope you enjoy reading my blog.
As you may have gathered by now you don't just have to make cards with stamps and a trawl round the pound shops usually provides some sort of base for a project. This time I've chosen a large plaque with a raised heart in the middle.
Full details are on the Oak House Studio blog but here you can see how I created a lovely textured frame.
Once this was all dry I painted it with Decoart Media Fluid Acrylics adding the triple embossed heart too.
I really enjoyed making this and am off back to Poundland to buy a few more. Please leave a comment here or on the Oak House Studio blog - there are still more projects to come!! Also check out the Inkspired page on facebook for more projects.
Day 2 of the ONE STAMP weekend and for this project I've used a piece of MDF painted with acrylic inks and added some Stampbord squares.
This is very shiny and difficult to photo - full details are on the Oak House Studio blog. Don't forget to leave a comment and come back to see more projects from the Design Team. Also check out the INKSPIRED group on facebook for more info.
Here's my next project using the Thoresby stamp, inks and Brushos.
The main element is created using Soft Relief Paste in Gold (made by Colourcraft like the Brushos) spread on the Thoresby stamp with a palette knife and left to dry. Full details are on the Oak House Studio blog so please pop over and take a look.
Hope you like it and thanks for visiting keep visiting for more projects from me and the Design Team. Also check out the Inkspired page on facebook for more projects.

It's that time of year again when Oak House Studio have their ONE STAMP weekend - I know it's obvious but it's a weekend to use and show off just one stamp design. This time Lynnda has chosen to use the THORESBY background.
It comes in various sizes and the ones I have include the large background stamp, the positive one and the smaller two are from the Texture Squares set designed more for silver clay, polymer clay etc.
These have just been stamped in the Triple Sky Blues pigment ink pad.
For full details of my first project check out the Oak House Studio Blog. Hope you like it and thanks for visiting. There will be posts from the DT all weekend and also check out the Inkspired page on facebook for more projects.
Today is the first day of Autumn and yet I'm doing Christmas!! The letter for the next Craft Barn Alpha Dictionary Challenge is X. There are few words to choose - Xenon is a colourless gas and I don't have a Xylophone stamp so I went with XMAS and added the Christmas definition too!
It's really too early for real Christmassy stuff so I decided to use this musical stamp from Crafty Individuals - I saw Three Ships..........please feel free to sing along!! It's just stamped on some inky blue card and mounted on a holly background. As always it's finished with the X Thicker letter and the dictionary definitions.
Thanks for coming over to visit.... I'm off to see what everyone else has been making!
So I've used an oblong piece of card. stamped the Oak Leaves with the Triple Meadow Green ink pad leaving an oval plain. I've stamped the small Oak Tree in the middle and then used edges of the big Oak Tree to stamp round the edges to give that overgrown feel. I've drawn an oval round the tree and painted a sunsetty scene (I seriously don't like this but have no time to do again). It's just finished with the letter Thicker and the dictionary definition.
Sorry I didn't get chance to visit you all last time - we were on holiday in Wales with little 4G and we had to sit in a car park to upload my post. Back home now so I hope to visit you all this time.
