Michael Strong group 6th Anniversary bloghop

Here is my anniversary bloghop project: For every year a lily. The cards and flowers are done with Bistre and attached to a 20×60 cm canvas.

6 Lily's

My first Michael Strong stamp was the  Cloisonné Heart. I fell in love with it in january 2008 when I saw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cni0c0nebdY#t=11

And this was my very first card with a stamp from Michael Strong

MS Valentine

MS Valentine 1 open

so I startet to collect these stamps and made special storages for them. Now, nearly 7 years later, you can see here all these boxes filled with Michael Strong stamps and dies.


I made the first box during a workshop given by Kay Williams, Tricia Morris and Michael Strong. Inside their signatures. I was so proud about it!!!

    Herma wat ziet dat er geweldig uit. Wat een leuk idee om voor elk jaar een Lely te stempelen. Ook jouw 1e kaart en 1e stempel zijn leuk om te zien.
    Ga weer ff verder ‘hoppen’
