It's All About Texture

Hi Crafty Friends

A very belated Happy New Year to you all!  

The weather is so grey here today that it is lights on in the house all day to try to dispel some of the winter gloom.  However, the house is cosy and full of the lovely spicy aroma of a good old fashioned bread pudding!  I had an abundance of good quality seeded bread lurking in the bread bin and I didn't want it to go to waste.  Two hours later and using a nice quick recipe, I now have a fragrant home and a very happy hubby - he does love a bit of stodge.

Enough of the domestic waffle, how about a bit of crafting to brighten the day.

Here is a sample I made using the Woven Fabric stamp set from Claritystamp.  These stamps are so versatile that I have only scratched the surface in playing with them.  On this project I have simply brayered dye based ink from a rainbow ink pad on to the stamp and then plonked it onto my card.  The addition of the Fly Away stamp in Archival black ink and a bit of mat and layering.  Job done! 

Hope you like it.

Thank you for visiting me today, especially after such a long time has elapsed since my last post.

I really must try harder!

Bye for now


  1. This is a lovely card, those texture stamp sets are so versatile - lots of play value. Love a good bread pudding although I can't remember when I last had one.

  2. Nice to see you blogging again. Goodness if my Hubby sees this post he will be lamenting on when was the last time time he had bread pudding. Actually it wasn’t that long ago but he will swear it has been yrs and yrs.!! That is an interesting stamp you have used and looks particularly good with the fly away stamp. Wishing you a Happy and Crafty New year. Hugs Mrs A.

  3. So effective. These stamps are great for quick but beautiful cards.

  4. Good to see you back blogging Anne - and I enjoyed your quick domestic review - haven't had bread pudding since I was a wee nipper.... way longer ago than I care to remember!
    Love your card - that (background) stamp is amazing, and I love how you have used it

  5. A beautiful card Anne, you have created a beautiful background for your pretty silhouette flowers.
    Your bread pudding sounds wonderful, I now feel very hungry!
