Bay Tree Cottage - Kadoodle Stamps





I'm back all spring cleaned and everything stashed away
Boy it feels good when your crafty area is all clean and no dodgy sticky bits or embossing powder granules lying around...
So here is my first card as part of the DT for Kadoodle Stamps - I'm using a wonderful stamp designed by the talented Christine Dark called Bay Tree Cottage - It just reminded me of quaint villages on a summer's evening sitting outside sipping a Pimms!!

I had great fun with this I decoupaged the house includings parts of the roof - Whew it took ages but I really enjoyed it, the image is coloured with watercolours, and yes those are hanging baskets which I cut out and yes nearly chopped my finger off in the process!!! LOL, I mounted them just under the roof - Christine also did cute little topiary trees which I also cut out!!

The papers are from my stash as I needed something green

I added ribbon and lace and a wooden button to finish!

The stamps are sold exclusively at The Craft Barn and there are a few more cottages too!

Christine has also designed two new lovely flower stamps which have now been released so if you fancy winning one - hop over to The Kadoodle Blog before the 20th January and check them out.
