Wish List Wallet

Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight have an Anything Goes theme which was picked by the lovely Esther.

I have made another project which will sit on my craft desk it is a wish list wallet and inside I have added a little notebook plus pen ready for adding all the crafty goodies I want to buy at Ally Pally in April. Loads of stamping and the little goose in the top right hand corner was made by triple embossing an oval piece of chipboard then stamping into it before adding gilding wax to the edges.

When fully opened you can see my bird has been stamped onto some faux leather card. Used the age ole technique of making faux leather, which Sheena has revived but her method is with glycerine. When I first saw this being done with card it was with the Rangers Ink Refresher and I have now tried both products and the Ink Refresher just has the edge for me but they both do work. Also added a little pocket for a tag I made but forgot to take a photo.

The notebook and pen were bought whilst shopping in Newbridge last week, only €1 for both.


Such a classy image but for the life of me I can’t remember where I bought it. Printed onto canvas paper to give an aged look then stamped the edge with a grid stamp from Stampin Up. The rather oversized bird cage is a Kaiser craft stamp. The rest of the stamps are from Indigo Blu, Darkroom Door, PaperArtsy and last but not least Stampers Anonymous.The background cardstock is of course from G45.


It would be fantastic if you could pop on over for a peak at what the rest of the Fashionettes have created.
