Celebrating Christmas at FSC

The new challenge for December is now up at Fashionable Stamping Challenges. We are asking that if you are making any projects that celebrate either Christmas, or the New Year, or even a birthday, that you might like to enter it into our challenge.

I’m a little late with my inspiration because I’ve been having a little holiday before Christmas, some time in the city teaching classes and then some time on a farm to relax and to check out an idea that I have for putting on a retreat next year.

I even donned a bee suit and helped with some hives.  Mind you … I got distracted feeding some long-horn cows which was fun.

The card that I made for this challenge celebrates Christmas using stamps from Visible Image called “Peace Love and Hope” and “Snow is Falling”.

Instead of baubles I’ve simply cut out my background with circle dies and gold embossed the words onto 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 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.

I hope that everyone stays safe over the Christmas season and has a wonderful time.


Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Something Wonderful

Our final challenge of 2017 has started at Rubber Dance!

This time around we are asking you to make something that follow a colour theme and/or glitter.  This challenge will run for the whole month with a massive prize of 50 Euro to spend at

Rubber Dance.

My inspiration for this challenge follows the colour theme.

 This card was pure fun to make … playing with a brayer, acrylic paints and some stamps from the Crazy Flowers #2, Something Wonderful and African Animals stamp sets.

The Design Team has some amazing inspiration for you over on the Rubber Dance blog, so please pop over and take a look and join in the fun.  Bibi, the owner of Rubber Dance, has gotten into the Christmas spirit by offering a massive prize of 50 Euro to spend in the shop.

And if you would like to spend a little on yourself in the meantime, if you use the code DLFreeShip as the coupon code at the check-out, you’ll receive free postage on your orders.  Anytime, all the time, for everyone!

Thank you for looking,
