Animal Antics


Just wanted to let you know about the new challenge theme over at Fantasy Stampers challenge blog, it's called Animal Antics, now that gives plenty of scope doesn't it, here's my DT card...

I used Claritystamp line sentiments, stag, and little trees from the Christmas jumper set. For a change from black, I stamped using a custom inkpad made with a piece of Cut n Dry felt and a couple of the cool Pure Colour Chemistry inks from Oak House Studio.

The other members of the Fantasy Stampers design team have created some lovely projects if you would like to pop over and look, and you have until week on Friday to enter the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!

Fright Night

Good Morning!

Is it really Monday again, already!

The last few weeks have been taken up with packing and moving, but the old place is now done and I hand the keys over today, now I just have to unpack....I can't find a thing at the moment, but it'll be ok.

So what about my's for the new challenge over at Fantasy Stampers, the theme is

Fright Night/Halloween. The other dt members have done some lovely work, we'd all love you to enter the challenge.

I used a Swirly Skull stamp from Dimension stamps, clear embossed it onto black card then decoupaged the skull on white.

I don't have a lot of Halloween type stamps, but It would be rude not to have a couple, especially as Halloween is Amber's birthday.

Speaking of birthdays, my little boy is 16 today!!!

So it's only fair I show a photo of him when he was still cute....

Yes, definitely still cute at 6, even in a blonde wig.....

Happy Birthday Son, I love you!!!!!!!!

Steampunk challenge at Fantasy Stampers

Good Morning!

Time has really run away from me the last couple of weeks, I've been really busy moving, I'm so sick of the sight of cardboard boxes, I really am.

Anyway, I should have blogged my card 6 days ago, that's when the Steampunk challenge went live over on Fantasy Stampers challenge blog.

I absolutely love steampunk, but found I didn't have any stamps to really fir the theme, so I adapted this card with some cogs and wings to create a girly steampunk feel.

The background isn't too clear, but trust me it's a brayered resist.

Gilding flakes on acetate for wings.

Diecut from Tim Holtz sewing room

And various Claritystamps and stencils.

There's still a full week to enter the challenge, so why not pop over and see what the rest of the DT have created and get a peek at the other entries.

Have a great day, another busy one for me!
