Flashback Friday - Aprons

It doesn't take long for Fridays to come around does it, it seems just yesterday that I posted my last Flashback Friday and here I am again posting another. This week I am featuring some Apron cards I created. The first two are using an apron stamp by Ann-ticipations and the last card is an apron card using a template.

If I haven't mentioned it before I do like stamping scenes, although I don't do as many these days as I used to do for some reason, I guess sketch challenge cards etc are really suited to scenes all that much. For the top card I created a scene with these cute ants carrying an apron, I just love these cute stamps (hmmm maybe one flashback Friday I should dig out some of my ant cards - I am sure I have some. Stamps like this are fun as you can get them to do all sorts of funny things. There are actually 4 or 5 ants that you can get - these ones are by Stamp Camp but there are a couple of other companies that also have ant images. Two companies that come to mind are alota rubber stamps and Rubbernecker, theirs are equally adorable - I know cause I have them LOL. This card uses one of the easiest grass stamps, it fits about the length of the card and on this one I have just stamped it twice with black ink and then colored it - so easy, it is made by Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers who have since ceased trading. As I used dp for the apron and cut that out, the ants are also stamped on card and cut out and then attached to the card.
This second apron is again the Ann-ticipations apron stamp that I stamped on white and yellow card. Before attaching the yellow pocket over the white part I stamped the apron using a tiny flower stamp (alota rubber stamps). The bees that are peeking out of the pockets and also the bzzzz are also by alota rubber stamps.
This last apron card was made using a template. The pink part of the apron opens up so you can write your message inside, I have again got something peeking out of the pocket this time a little bear by Printworks - this bear comes in a few different sizes. I again used a flower for the background of this apron, this particular flower is by Lucy's Stamps which is an Australian company.

Tomorrow I am going to a Scrapbooking & Papercrafts show - I am not a scrapbooker but there will be plenty for a stampaholic like me to buy. This time round I won't be working so it will be fun just going around and seeing all the great products. I'll let you know what I find tomorrow!
