Its Rudolph Time again



Another month flown by and I realised I had not made a card for the Rudolph Challenge I haven't missed a month up to now so don't want to fall at the last post !  This is one of the cards I am making kits of for a group of 40 plus non crafters to make in November, someone kindly volunteered me to do it and I know they had no idea of the task they were setting me!   For this card I have used a die I bought in The Works, ( cuts beautifully)  cut it in gold and red and glued them together, it''s a very simple card but I am quite happy with it.

Lets Dance



Make My Monday challenge this week is "Dance"  gave me a chance to use this Stampendous stamp that I really like but it gets very little use. I love that it takes so little time to make, the verse is part of the stamp, just had to add a bit of colour and some little crystal drops for the rain.

While I was in the mood I also made another card, this time using a  creative expressions stamp for the dancers and some stamps that were free with Creative Stamping last year.

Things with wings 2



Time for a mid month bit of inspiration over at Stamping Sensations and the design team have some lovely samples to show you.  I'm a bit disappointed at how my card looks on here ,it is brighter in real life although I do find that the oxide inks do tend to look a bit duller than the ordinary distress inks,maybe its just how I use them.  For my card I have used a favourite TH background stamp and a butterfly stamp that was free with a magazine.  There is still plenty of time to enter the challenge but as we are a stamping challenge we must see stamping as the focal point of your entry.

Gift From The Sea




Just a bit of playing about for the the Library Challenge which this time is a book by
Anne, Morrow Lindbergh. I haven't heard of this book or the author so my piece is inspired by the title which is Gift From The Sea.  The little saying is so true, I love going to the seaside and it does make me so happy so that is a gift from the sea to me. I just used a couple of bits of DP and computer generated the saying.  The large shell stamp is a very old one, had quite a search to find it. stamped it with Memento Peanut Brittle, overstamped it with Versamark and the coloured it with gold and pink mica powder to get a lovely shine. I'll probably stick this is my art journal.




























It's snowtime !



Time for a new challenge at Sparkles Christmas and this time Caz has chosen the theme of Its Snowtime.  Well I don't know about you but we have had the strangest weather over the last week, hottest day on record one minute , amazing thunderstorms and torrential rain, we did miss the hailstone storms which have been all around us, did someone say it's summer !
For my card I have used a Hunkydory topper and paper from old stash which I am trying to use up.The winter wonderland stamp was free with magazine a couple of years ago. The design team have some lovely cards to show you over on the challenge blog so hope you will visit them and join in our challenge.
