PAINT BOX POPPETS - CARD 4




My last one of my boy stamps  from the PAINT BOX POPPETS COLLECTION is this little Golfer called JUST LIKE DADDY - such a little sweetie - loving his face.  This one makes me smile as he looks like a mini me.  Reminds me of when my son was at primary school and they were allowed to wear what you like for charity.  My son chose to go as MR BEAN - oh he was funny and he amused his classmate too!

PAINTBOX POPPETS - CARD 3




For those of you that have seen my last couple of posts you will know that I am absolutely loving using my newest stamps - PAINT BOX POPPETS.  






Staying with the boys I have used the school boy called APPLE FOR TEACHER which I especially love and which I found the ideal thing to recycle.  Probably 15 years ago I bought my son a couple of bookmarks to encourage him to read but it never worked and he didn't bother with the bookmarks either.  So now after all these years I have been able to find just the right thing to do with it.  I shall save this card for my son and sent him the spider again - see if he remembers!

PAINTBOX POPPETS - CARD 2






 After colouring my first card from this collection of PAINTBOX POPPETS I chose to continue with the boys and try the football player next called HALF TIME


Must say I am loving the images chosen for the boys collection and hoping that there will be other stamps coming up although I would love them a little bigger as they would be easier to colour at the age of 50 struggle with being able to see the detail.  I know, I know time to go the the Opticians!

PAINT POPPETS - CARD 1




Having just received my Paint Poppets stamps and CD from Crafter's Companion I couldn't wait to use - but before I did I decided it was time to sort my Spectrum Noir as I hadn't use them very much, as it was easier to go to my Copics which I had made a colour chart for and had kept up to date as I purchased more.






On a roll a not only indexed my Spectrum Noir but I went through all my pens and did the same for the Flexi-markers, Tria and Promarkers.  I even re-did my Copics chart.  Wished I done it months ago as it is so easy to use all my pens now.


Back to my card - the first stamp I used was this one called In Trouble Again.  Originally when I had first seen this one in the advertisements I didn't particularly like it but I have to say it turned out to be my favourite and I think the easiest to colour.
