Sabelina Show and Tell and my first YouTube video

During my search for new and interesting products for my online shop I found this company who makes lovely stamps and stamping accesories (Catalogue).  I know that many of you crafters will love their goods as much as I do and feel that you should be able to buy these at a reasonable price as their range of stamps will be a great addition to your current craft stash. 

I am part of their international design team and have used their clear stamps, inks, stamp handles / acrylic blocks.  I love their liquid stamp cleaner spray with their cleaning pad and have to say that it is really excellent quality.  Even after regular use and minimal cleaning the stamps remain perfectly clear.

The range of stamps and colours are extensive with sets for every occasion and a few you might not even have thought about yet and have been developed to decorate paper, textile fabrics, wood, plastic, ceramic, curtains, metal, glass and other materials.
Here is a video link to some of the items I have received: recently.It is my first video so its not at as professional as many of yours videos but I am sure you will get the idee.  I plan on creating lots of project with the stamps I already have and will upload them  to youtube and will also be submittng projects to various UK craft magazines to advertise their products.
I just love these stamps as I am sure you will too so Please contact you favourite craft retailer and ask them for Sabelina stamps, inks and above all their liquid stamp cleaner and cleaning pad. Also try Create and Craft or QVC. If they have not heard of them before refer them back to me.  Just a little extra Artemio is another range of stamps in their portfolio as can be seen on their website (in Chinese but there are many free translators on the web).


Moody Blue

This card is one of my newest monochromatic creations.  The stamps used came as a free gift with a new magazine call Get Stamping.

I created the card using only 3 clear stamps, embossing powder, 4 different blue pigment inks and Shrink plastic).  The background on the card was created using the flower stamp on white card , then embossing with clear embossing powder and rubbing ink over this. 

I then went on to stamp the text 4 times onto a cream base card and added the flourish stamp twice to create and accent for the corner.  I stamps some more flowers on white card, cut them out and shaped them a little.  Then I also stamped the flower in various blue inks on clear shrink plastic, cut out and shrunk them with a heat gun.

I used the Shrinked flowers as centers to the paper flowes and also added some on the flourish.  I even decorated the envelope.

Hope you like this.
