Introducing New Guest Design Team Member Tracy Thompson

Hello everyone, I would like to introduce you to another of our new Guest Design Team members, Tracy Thompson. She is joining us this month and will be sharing three posts to inspire you. We asked Tracy to tell us a little bit about herself and to add a photograph. Here is what Tracy had to say:


I have a lovely hubby John of 24 years and I'm Mum of three gorgeous children, Scott (who would be 25 (who has sadly passed away on 6th July 2018), Jodie 22 and Bobby 15. We have four cats and three dogs, all so adorable. I started crafting in 2008 and started my blog in 2009. I just love rubber stamping and getting inky so much, and I love blogging so much because every time I log on I'm inspired by so many talented crafters. I am at present part of three lovely design teams, Stamping Sensations, We Love Chocolate Baroque and Allsorts. Now gratefully on the GDT for Chocolate Baroque, there's no bigger buzz than seeing your creations on the television. 

Thank you Tracy x

This is my first post for the Team and a creation from my first TV show from last month May. I started by creating a background paper using Distress Oxides for the base of a gift bag. I then stamped my image, Italian House, I coloured it with Distress Inks. I added some trees from the Orchard Design a Tree stamps, and with Versafine Clair I added some blossom which comes with the tree stamps. I finished the scene with some grass and sky.


Hope to see you later in the month when I will be showing another creation from the show.

Happy crafting

Tracy x
