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!!!

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!!!

Favourites at FSC

The Sound of Music
was the inspiration for this challenge.
For our challenge at FSC we ask that you either channel the
Sound of Music
Raindrops on roses
And whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things
Or…
chose your favourite stamp!
wow…there so many possibilities!
Kittens, cats, raindrops cosy kitchens, paper bags, string
or favourite stamps. 
One of my favourite stamps is this little girl.
She reminds me so much of me.
Or is it just my imagination?
This is me when at about the age of 1…just starting to walk. 
A little younger than the girl in the stamp though lol.
We have Mother’s Day coming up next month 
so you know where this one is going 🙂
The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on the same theme.

FSC Modes of Transport

Modes of Transport
is this month’s theme at FSC
There are so many types of transport to pick from: bikes, boats, trains, planes, cars, tractors..the list goes on.
 A challenge for everyone!
This stamp of a bike on a bridge has been in my stash of stamps for some time and is one that hasn’t been used very often
so it was great opportunity to get it out and play.
This card uses a picture stamp as the focal image.
The inking is kept fairly simple and used to give a slight highlight to the image. 
The bike on the bridge tells the story all by itself. So peaceful and reflective. The butterflies were an after-thought but somehow it manages to bring the whole piece together.
By keeping the background in neutral tones it helps to bring out the colouring of the image that little bit more.

It’s Just A Number

It’s Just A Number
at FSC this month.
That can be anything to do with clocks, special age, birthdays, anniversary, random numbers whatever you like really with numbers.
I’ve made a door!
Now…you might think that is an awfully looong street with this number on the door? Probably the longest street in the world!
After making the door I couldn’t think what number to put on it…
so I’ve used my birthday numbers lol
A little while ago I received a lovely surprise package from Shirley with door stamps in it (thanks so much Shirley). This was the perfect opportunity to use them.
The background was some scrap card from some experimenting with alcohol inks.  It had a gorgeous streaky effect. A wood grain stamp over the top of it gave it some character ~ and then the stamps did the rest.
I think it looks kind of real.
