‘Summer Blooms’

‘Summer Blooms’
is the new challenge at Vintage Stamping Challenges
for the month of June.
We are a stamping challenge so combining that with some flowers
will qualify you for this challenge.
This rose stamp is one of my all time favourites 
from Flonzcraft (though there are a few that are my favourites)
and you can find here.

It was a challenge to use it in a way that I haven’t tried yet.
So this time I have used it stamped onto a 
mixed media background.
I have applied grunge paste with a palette knife,  
and a little more through a stencil before covering with gesso
and Fresco Finish paint…then stamping of course.
I hope you take the time to pop over to 
and check out the amazing talent and ideas from the team.
 Flonzcraft is offering a generous $20 gift voucher to the winner,
he offers an occasional spot prize
and there is always a top 3!
Enjoy!

“It’s a Man Thing”

“It’s A Man Thing”
is the new theme at Vintage Stamping Challenges 
this month.
There are so many possibilities with this one…you could make a valentine’s
card to your man, go sporty, cars, wild west or anything with a man in it would be fine.
When I saw this stamp set here I knew just what I was going to do.
LOTS OF MEN!
I think I used nearly every man in the set…but it was heaps of fun.
The colours I have kept with shaded bluey/greys…
everything I tried just didn’t seem to look right. But I do like how the colours have come out.
Lots of masking, a little stenciling, some cracked UTEE, a little gold and of course
some hearts (because I love men!)
I think sometimes you just need to keep things simple so that the stamps can shine.

“A Cold and Frosty Xmas”

Cold and Frosty Colours
is the theme this month at Vintage Stamping Challenges
This challenge runs until the new year so it is up to you whether
you make a Christmas card 
or just take a little break from the festive season and play with the colours.
It can be relaxing to just do something totally different after the big day…
However, I’ve gone with a xmas card as I am soooo far behind with these
and added heaps and heaps of sparkle.
A one layer card.

This ripped technique I first saw done by our DT sister Brenda here
and it has quickly become a favourite of mine.
I have used the cold colours of Distress Inks,
used a snowflake stencil, 
the glitter technique is from TH (Day 5 of CC102)…I love the sparkle that it adds.
~ then I’ve finished off with dripping some Fresco Finish paint and addiing a little
rock candy glitter while it was still wet.
The main stamp is from Flonz
and is found here.
My discovery while playing this time is that
when you stamp onto shiny paper with Brilliance black ink
and then over stamp with the same image ~ no masking is necessary as the ink moves aside
and makes it look like you have done the masking anyway!

“A Traditional Christmas”

“A Traditional Christmas”
is the new theme this month at Vintage Stamping Challenges.

Yes, it is coming up to that time of the year again…when we start looking
towards making our xmas cards for friends and family.
I hope you aren’t like me and leave it all a little late
and then the big rush is on!
Every year I rush my way through the last half of November
and make a promise to myself that next year I will be more organised…
ummmm….at least I now have one card done!!!

I have kept this pretty simple because I think that xmas cards
shouldn’t be overdone…
but I still wanted to play with my inks.
So I have used the wrinkle free technique for my background
– just using blues.
Then stamped some snowflakes…using different shades of DI’s
and adding some glitter…
(sorry, it doesn’t show up in this pic, but it is pretty)
Then I finished with some holly leaves and a little ice stickles.

The main image is from Flonzcraft and you’ll find it here.
Flonz has some beautiful xmas stamps to pick from and I wish I haven’t
ordered more!

“In the Garden”

In The Garden
 
In my part of the world Spring is definitely in the air!
To this little butterfly (me)
that means 2 things ~ weeds and mowing!
So I stepped back for a moment when I made this card 
and reflected on the quiet time in the garden.
This image from Flonzcraft was perfect for what I had in mind
and can be found here.
I love the techniques on the background on this card.
I have added some inked up paper to some corrugated card
and then stripped some away…and then I also sanded some back.
I love the texture it has created and it is definitely on my “do again” list!
The heart is die cut and then swished through some ink on a craft mat.
The image is only lightly coloured so that it stands out more against the grunge background.
