Anything Goes at FSC

It’s time for the first challenge of the year
at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.

And to start the year off we have an
‘ANYTHING GOES’
theme.

The Floral Wreath stamp set from Rubber Dance
caught my eye for this challenge.


It has been coloured with Jane Davenport smooth markers, cut out and
placed on an Artist Trading Coin made with
Distress Inks.
The smaller flowers are from the same set along with the corner detail.
The background was made with Distress Inks smooched onto a craft sheet
and applied with a piece of acetate.
This gives you a little more control than random dabbing.

Have you ever wondered what to do with an Artist Trading Coin?
This is one way that you can use 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 (that’s my Etsy shop) and has a gorgeous stamp 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.

Thank you for looking,
Happy Stamping!

Curious Cat at Rubber Dance

Hi everyone,
are you ready for Christmas yet?
Tomorrow sees me wrapping all the pressies ready to take away with me.
Then I’m all organised … I think.

This month I have an inky tutorial over on the Rubber Dance blog.

It is always fun when you discover a new way of using inks.
This tutorial explores ways to combine your trusty Distress Inks with Distress Oxides for some beautiful effects to create fun backgrounds.


The stamps used on this card are mainly Curious Cat and Textured Flowers from Rubber Dance Stamps.

I hope you take the time to pop over to Rubber Dance and see how it has all come together.
It really was a fun one to make.

———————————————
I would also love to wish everyone a wonderful and safe Christmas
and hope that 2019 is a fantastic year for everyone.

Happy Stamping!

FSC – Resist

Hi everyone and welcome to a new challenge
at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.

This month we ask you to join us with a challenge using the
RESIST technique.
There are many different types of resist that you might enjoy playing with,
including embossing powders, crayons, paint, gesso, gel mediums and more.

My card uses white embossing powder.


I’ve used the Blossom Scroll stamp from Stampendous for my background.
This stamp is 6″ x 6″ and is perfect for an embossed background.


Different shades of blue distress inks
were blended over the top of the white embossing powder.
Any ink left on the EP was wiped off with a slightly damp cloth.


The butterflies are a Rubber Dance stamp called “Butterfly Trio”.
They were simply stamped onto some scrap card
that had been coloured with a contrasting distress ink
and then cut out.

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 (that’s my Etsy shop) and has a gorgeous stamp 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.

Thank you for looking,
Happy Stamping!

Sweet Sunflower

Sweet Sunflower
I thought I would share a quick card that I have made while having a crafty session with Shirley last night.
Sweet Sunflower is a gorgeous stamp from
Stampendous and I couldn’t wait to ink it up!
I wanted a longer stem for this so I stamped the leaves again and attached them up-side-down to make the sunflower taller.
Where there’s a will, there’s a way…as they say lol
While deciding whether to put words on it or not, 
and wondering what goes with a sunflower…?
I had a Monty Python moment..as you do!
And so “Always look on the brighter side of life” 
came to mind…and now it is stuck in my head lol.
I think it is a good positive message anyway.
I’ve been out of action this week with a severe foot infection from a spider bite…so it was a nice cheery way to help get over it with.  Thanks Shirley for a fun session 🙂

Sweet Sunflower RS-P221 from Stampendous!
