The Hippy in Me

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Lost Coast Designs
This fortnight it is ‘Silhouettes’

My inspiration for this challenge is using the
Grunge Flower Profile stamp.

I’ve used Distress Inks to create the background
and Distress Oxides for the main image as it stamps so beautifully.

I hope you enjoy my card
and take the time to check out the amazing inspiration
over at the Lost Coast Designs portal

Happy Stamping!

Anything Goes at Lost Coast Designs

Hi everyone,
It’s an exciting day today for me because it’s my first post
as part of the Lost Coast Designs DT.

I have a tutorial for you over on the Lost Coast Designs blog
showing you how this card has come together.


Those that know me will realise that I have a whacky sense of humour at times.
This card I’ve called
“Exciting Things Are Just Around the Corner”

The theme this fortnight at Lost Coast Designs is
‘Anything Goes’.
I would love for you to check out my tutorial.

Happy Stamping!

Anything Goes at FSC

It’s time for the first challenge of the year
at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.

And to start the year off we have an
‘ANYTHING GOES’
theme.

The Floral Wreath stamp set from Rubber Dance
caught my eye for this challenge.


It has been coloured with Jane Davenport smooth markers, cut out and
placed on an Artist Trading Coin made with
Distress Inks.
The smaller flowers are from the same set along with the corner detail.
The background was made with Distress Inks smooched onto a craft sheet
and applied with a piece of acetate.
This gives you a little more control than random dabbing.

Have you ever wondered what to do with an Artist Trading Coin?
This is one way that you can use them.

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different takes on this theme. Please pop on over and check out their awesome creativity, be inspired and maybe join in the fun.

Ink Art Designs is our sponsor this month (that’s my Etsy shop) and has a gorgeous stamp to give away to one lucky winner chosen by random org.

We also have a top 3 chosen by the design team and Saturday Spotlights where we showcase inspirational makes.

Thank you for looking,
Happy Stamping!

Curious Cat at Rubber Dance

Hi everyone,
are you ready for Christmas yet?
Tomorrow sees me wrapping all the pressies ready to take away with me.
Then I’m all organised … I think.

This month I have an inky tutorial over on the Rubber Dance blog.

It is always fun when you discover a new way of using inks.
This tutorial explores ways to combine your trusty Distress Inks with Distress Oxides for some beautiful effects to create fun backgrounds.


The stamps used on this card are mainly Curious Cat and Textured Flowers from Rubber Dance Stamps.

I hope you take the time to pop over to Rubber Dance and see how it has all come together.
It really was a fun one to make.

———————————————
I would also love to wish everyone a wonderful and safe Christmas
and hope that 2019 is a fantastic year for everyone.

It’s Winter at FSC

Hi everyone and welcome to the new challenge at
Fashionable Stamping Challenges.

This month we would love to see your Winter projects.
My tag uses a snowman from Rubber Dance.


The background has some paint, stenciling and texture paste to build up a wintry background.
The stamp is Mr. Frosty and can be found here.
The beauty of using a snowman is that you don’t have to colour it in very much!
And this one I found very easy to cut out.


How cute is he!!!

A while ago I decided to start a tag journal. I’m glad to have another one to add to another page in my journal.

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different takes on this theme. Please pop on over and check out their awesome creativity, be inspired and maybe join in the fun.

Ink Art Designs is our sponsor this month (that’s my Etsy shop) and has a gorgeous stamp set to give away to one lucky winner chosen by random org.

We also have a top 3 chosen by the design team and Saturday Spotlights where we showcase inspirational makes. And the icing on the cake is that each month we will be having a guest designer chosen from the entries.

Thank you for looking,
Happy Stamping!
