Daisydays/Summertime - Polkadoodles Crafting

Who saw our lovely Nikky on Create and Craft today
A fabulous show as ever 

If you missed it you can catch it for the next few days
and hey I was lucky to be chosen to be the Guinea Pig
I loved it and learnt so much!

I have never really grasped the concept of Stamping and always veered down the Digi route

For those that know me - would know I ooohhhed and arrred at all Polkadoodles adorable stamps exspecially since the soups came along 
I loved what everyone was making with them and sometimes felt a little sad I could not join in with them as I could have so many ideas bursting but not a clue where to start.

But then along came Summertime and Daisydays
complete with Underlay sheets - I was to be Nikky Guinea Pig

I was hugley nervous and even when they arrived through the post - I sat them neatly on my desk and admired from afar (stroking them every now and again)

I will never ever forget that Saturday afternoon - I quickly skimmed through all the Underlays and I honestly thought never in a million years! Nikky has got to be having a laugh!

Omg ink pad at the ready printed out Underlay one and that was it I was off
At first I was very slow but I couldnt belive once my first was completed - I was addicted
I really wanted to stamp more so printed of the next * In hindsight I should not of rushed through to looking at them all and scaring myself* I realised taking it one sheet at a time was the way forward and that is how I worked - I learnt something new on every page and also learnt how the stamps worked together- When I had finished I had 9 lovely card toppers and more than anything I could stamp - I loved working the underlays they have been put together with so much thought, that even an experienced stamper would have a lot of fun with them 
My crafting life has dramatically changed as I now have the confidence and am able to stamp.
Ink pads and such filled me with dread and it really did not matter how much I practised I was pants!
Scatty Jan the Stamper has a nice ring to it don't you think?
The first two Photos are from the Underlay Sheets , My underwater scene is when I went it alone ...eeekk
