Hanglar Stanglar stamps

Hanglar stamps - have you discovered them yet?  Ooh, for months I've drooled over them, but sadly unless you were from Sweden, Norway or Finland you just couldn't get your sticky little paws on them - until now.  If you stalk Ebay you may be lucky enough to snag a set, but you'll have to be lightening fast as they sell out in a flash.

Card - Hanglar from Kit 13

         Image: Hanglar 
         Paper: Paper Cellar - Checks & from stash
         Colouring: Copics & Liquid applique
         Ribbon: from stash
         Additional: Nesties & sewing machine

I did amend this stamp a little by removing the wings and puffy cloud - merely covered the areas I didn't want to use with low tack tape, inked up the stamp as usual then peeled off the tape & stamped image on to my cardstock.   I had great fun with the liquid applique which makes pretty realistic "faux" sheepskin!! 

What do you think to the wonky stitching.......hum, me thinks I need more practice!

Well, no rest for the wicked, I'm currently beavering away making Christmas cards - 49 and counting...........

Be warned, these stamps, like Magnolia are addictive but unlike chocolate they don't make your clothes shrink (just your bank balance!)

Happy crafting

She is so cute. That company needs to find it's way to the USA. And your stitching is great - I don't know what you are talking about. I've been sewing for years and for whatever reason I can't get a straight stitch on my craft sewing machine. But what the heck - it adds to the homemade look - that is how I justify it lol. But your stitches look great to me. Keep up the great work.
