It’s All About Nature at FSC

The new challenge is now up at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.

And this month we are asking you create a project about nature.

This can be flowers, leaves, or even animals.

This month I’ve used some of my favourite quirky flowers from Rubber Dance.  The colourful background was made with Distress Oxides and the flowers I’ve kept in black and white for a little contrast.

Recently I took part in a card chain challenge and this is what I made for it – so now it has a new home up in Canada.

And I received a beautiful card in return – from Mauritius.  Sooo much fun!!!

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.

Dreaming Big at Visible Image

Today is my last post on behalf of Visible Image because, as of the end of this month, I officially step-down from Team Awesome.

It’s been nearly two years and during this time I’ve ‘met’ and been friends with some really great crafters who are amazingly talented people.  I’ve learnt something along the way from each person in one way or another.

Thank you Helen and Mark for the most incredible journey, the wonderful opportunities, great support of me and for being friends.

 

This card uses one of the new word stamps from Visible Image called ‘Dream Big’.  This has been paired up with the eye from ‘Where Dreams Take You’.  I didn’t think of it at the time, but it kind of sums up Visible Image don’t you think?

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.

A reminder that Rubber Dance will ship stamps for FREE, anywhere in the world on orders over 15 Euro!

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:

Unicorn Beauty

It’s my turn to share a card that I’ve made for Visible Image.

When my son rang and said – mum, can you please make me one of your cards for Molly (gf) … oh, and it has to have a unicorn on it! I knew that it had to have this gorgeous unicorn from the ‘Believe In Unicorns’ set.

The star and the word ‘Love’ is from the new release ‘Peace Love and Hope’ stamp set.

I’ve highlighted around the unicorn and stars with a fine liner. And the extra stars are from the ‘Rock Out’ stamp set. I seem to be going through a star phase at the moment – there just seems to be so much you can do with them.
