Wild ATC’s

Theme Challenge At Rubber Dance

is now underway … and this time it is ANIMALS.  I hope that you have some time to come over and play.


I’ve decided to go wild and have used some animals from the ‘African Animals’ stamp set to make a group of 3 ATC’s.

There are 4 different wild animals in the set to use, with clever words that relate to each animal.

The animals have all been coloured with water-colour pencils and fussy cut.  The Merry Magpie set has been a favourite of mine, and I’ve used the extra bits for some stamping on these ATC’s.  The Textured Flowers set has a couple of leaves which look a little African, so they’ve been used also.

Please pop over to the Rubber Dance blog to see some more great inspiration and a great variety of animal projects used for this challenge.

Have fun stamping!!!

Snow Is Falling

I love playing with new stamps – and the new releases from Visible Image are brilliant!

I’ve used both the ‘Snow is Falling’ and ‘Peace Love Hope’ stamp sets for this card.

We don’t have snow in my part of the world, and I know it is white, but for some reason blues are the colours come to mind.  This card is made with a mixture of blues and iced spruce oxides.


The Peace Love and Hope set has so many interesting elements in it that mix and match with almost anything.  For this card I’ve used the bauble and stamped a reindeer from the set as a center piece.  All the little extra bits fit beautifully inside the bauble.  Clever thinking Visible Image!

Stamps used are:

Snow Is Falling

Peace Love and Hope

Charlie – FSC


has been one of my favourite stamps for years, though I  rarely use him.  You know what it’s like … you just have to have that stamp! For no reason, except you love it lol.

But this month he was just who I was looking for for the new challenge at FSC.  The theme this month is

Time Waits For No Man

This is a male themed challenge that can have men, clocks or time-pieces, anything that has to do with time.

I’ve been inspired this month by our fearless leader, Shirley.  She spoke recently about having a journal book that she uses for just stamping.  No technique-y things, just stamping…

So this card has no technique-y things!  It’s all stamping … okay, a little lid stamping using acrylic paint, but that doesn’t really count does it?

Charlie himself is from Stampsmith.  The background stamping, stars and words are all from Visible Image.

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.
