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!

Use Your Inks!

Good morning and welcome to a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.
July’s theme has been chosen by Shirley and she wants us to ‘Use Those Inks Anyway You Want’.
 FSC is one of the few stamping challenges around, which is quite special.

For my inspiration I’ve made an Art Journal page.

This journal page is a fun play with distress inks, oxides, stencils and stamps!
Pure fun all the way!!!

I teach Art Journaling in my region and this is one of the fun pages from one of my classes.

This is a close-up of one of the Dina Wakley Scribbly birds that I used on the page.

And this is the other little birdie.

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 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.

Thank you for looking,

I have an easy-going newsletter that goes out whenever I have new stock on the way, or just in, with some occasional stamping tips and specials just for the people in the newsletter group.  There is a link on the right side-bar if you would like to join.

Happy Stamping!

Floral at FSC

This month we have a beautiful floral theme for you!
You can show us either a single flower or a bouquet. The choice is up to you.
I hope you find time to join in the challenge.

For my inspiration I’ve made an Art Journal page.
My house is on the market at the moment so the words on this page are about practicing patience!

The stamps used are Entomology and Flower Garden from Stampers Anonymous.
The stencils, mini cell theory and harlequin, are from TWC and the paints are Dina Wakley.

The technique is one that I’ve developed by bouncing off another technique.  It is super fun and easy to do!
How is that for a teaser lol.
There will be more about it in future posts. I’m a little bit addicted to it at the moment so I’m sure you will see me use it a few times.

Mama Owl

Today I’m sharing a cheeky card that I’ve made for a friend’s birthday.

It is also part of the Rubber Dance inspiration for the current challenge.

For this challenge you can use the colour combo above, or alter something any way that you like.

I’ve used the colour combo for my card.

This challenge at Rubber Dance goes for the whole of April. I hope that you can pop on over and take a look at some amazing inspiration from the team.

It’s fun to join in on the challenges and there is an awesome 12 Euro prize up for grabs at the end of the month.

 

Happy Stamping,
