Love this train

One of the nights during the road trip I had the pleasure of staying with Pauline and Gary Mc Ardle stampin up demo in Napier and what a night we had as you can imagine sharing Ideas and plans for layouts, anyone one of these conversations involved the Choo Choo stamp set from the very soon to be released Mini Catalogue.

I love this set as I grew up around trains as My Father served many years as a guard on New Zealand Rail in Dunedin and we often started our holidays with a train trip to Picton and a bus ride to nelson to spend time with my mums family so I had to get this set

I really like the effect of two step stampin I have achieved on this card by stamping in one of the in colours then running around the edge of the stamp with chocolate chip stamp and write marker pen to create the outline effect and some extra dimension
keep posted for more Ideas using this set or contact me and I can order this set for you on the 1st of August when it is available.
