Ching-Chou Kuik Stamps

I got a few of these this last week, and I've been busy with them.


The stamps are all gorgeous, and I agonised over which to get. This one's 'Fluttering Butterflies' and it's been coloured with Promarkers chosen to work with the dark background paper. That came from a Papermania pad called 'Spring Life' that I picked up at the recent Olympia show. The colours are very definite and I suspect they might be quite hard to use, but I love the combination. The spotty paper is from the Pretty Please pad by My Mind's Eye that was a free gift from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine a while ago. I've finished it off with some blue paper roses that came from the local 99p shop. They only had one pack of them - if there'd been more, I might've cleaned them out! I considered adding more, but the paper is so gorgeous, I didn't want to hide any more of it!

The card fulfils the requirements for the current Crafty Catz challenge.

I made another card, but this one isn't suitable for any current challenges.


This image is 'Fairy of the Night' and I coloured without considering backing paper. (Sometimes a mistake!) But, I found this one in the same Papermania pad. Again, I used Promarkers to colour the image, but this time, I added highlights in Sakura Stardust pen. I finished the card with flowers using made using some of my punches, and card coloured with Promarkers and Sakura Stardust pens.
