Merry Christmas



Well I seem to be missing all my deadlines at the moment but I'm determined to get my card into Scrappy Mo's Rudolph challenge, I've managed every month up to now so don't want to be missing out now.  I've spent three hours today at a protest meeting about building in our village after spending the morning trying to get some paint on the walls in my living room. Easy enough to do the actual painting but we have some quite large heavy furniture and DH and I have struggled to shift some of it, Joys of getting old!  Anyhow back to my card I'm not the biggest fan of die cuts but these three scene dies came free with Simply Cards And Papercrafts and were to hand so thought I try a quick card with them. Think I should have been a bit more heavy handed with the blue ink on the edges and I don't think I'll be making anymore of these but its another Christmas card in the box.

Time of my life



This time at Try It On Tuesday the challenge is for Time/clocks etc.  When I saw this challenge I was initially happy as I do have quite a collection of clock/watch stamps etc but nothing seemed to come together right.  Tonight I remembered this Lost Coast design stamp which I really like and she doesn't get out of the box enough. Stamped onto a piece of oxide ink card and cut it out, just added a bit of extra colour to her jacket.  The stencilled piece was in the never ending pile on my table as was the piece behind. The colours don't show up well on here,its more orange than pink.The words are from an old Paper Artsy set.

Welcome little one



Don't often make baby cards but had to make one recently but forgot the take a photo of it! this is one I made at the same time and didn't use. I haven't added a sentiment as I will probably add a name when I know who it's going to be for. I'd like to enter my card into Cardz4galz challenge which is welcome little baby and of course it has to be for a girl. I'd also like to enter

Daisychain challenges - In the pink

and

Sparkles monthly challenges. - die cuts or punches, I've used pram die,flower die, scallop square and stitched square dies.

I've got a friend


The new challenge at Try It On Tuesday  is "I've got a friend so lets see who your friends are, human, animal or imaginary so lots of scope there.  For my card I have used an old Paperbag Studio Stamp,must admit I was spoilt for choice with what to use but finally decided on this one.Everything except the stamped image was on my table,distress oxide paper left over from another project,piece of torn tissue paper,scraps of paper and heart shaped piece, I did die cut the thinlets swirl from another piece of the paper. The sentiment is from the bottom of the stamp.

Pretty Flamingo

  Time for September challenge at Stamping Sensations and this month we have a colour challenge for you.


Don't forget we are a Stamping Challenge and MUST see stamping as the focal point of your project, this does not not mean a small sentiment added as an afterthought ! If we do not comment it means your entry does not meet the rules of the challenge and will not be considered to be in the top five.

This is this months prize, well worth entering for.


For my card I have used a Stamp from Crafty Individuals stamped onto an distress oxide background,the flamingoes are also painted with distress oxide inks.mounted onto two different colour pieces of card which match the second and third colours on the chart, don't show up too well on here.

Christmas Animals




For challenge 80 at Sparkles Christmas, Caz has asked for Christmas Animals. My first thought was the camels and three wise men but then I decided to make a little winter scene using Cardio stamps and the deer from Inkylicious.  I havw to say my card looks better in real life as there is a lot of sparkly glitter on it,the blue mat is also glitter card.  I don't use my Cardio stamps as much as I should and then I might get a little better at making scenes with them but its a case of so many stamps so little time LOL
