Snowmen SS Challenge

Here is my entry for this weeks Sunday Stamper Challenge and what a great challenge it is this week as its given me an excuse to get my wonderful Stitchel Snowmen and lady out of hiding, I just love these they are adorable.

I have stamped them on to glossy covered card and cut them out, I decorated a tag with Distress Inks and background stamps then put foam on the back of my snow people and added them to my tag, how cute are they, a few bits of white and gold pen and a finished tag. The stamps can be bought from Artistic Stamper and there are not just snowmen in the range so be warned you will want more :-)

Hope you like my tag and do take a look at the adorable stamps and Jennie also sells loads of other brilliant goodies to

Here are 2 cards for the Gingersnap Creations challenge which is Thankfulness, I know I have to make more than one, why I have no idea, guess if I am stamping and cutting out flowers I may as well do loads.

These cards are made using my final stamp in the collection of words, first time I have used the Thanks one, I have used Wendy Vecchi Stamps for the flowers and butterly and have layered them, not that it shows much, then used plain cardstock and some buttons for the flower middles, hope you like these and am of to tell Gingersnaps I have joined there challenge xx

Message but not in a bottle

This is my entry for this weeks Sunday Stamper Challenge which is message in a bottle, but my message is on a card :-) I know this is a simple card but effective for what I need it for, I used a message stamp and Stitchel Stamps that can be bought from The Artistic Stamper, I just adore using these for embellishments as they are just sooooooo easy to cut out and decorate a project fabby. I have just matted the wording and added the flowers, hope you like this and thanks for dropping in xx

Have by the way been away at the weekend for the Artsy Crafty weekend, WOW it was just a brilliant time, made great things and had my great friends for company, we did have such fun to, just thought I would say that the weekend is well worth doing if you love Altered Art type crafting and you can read about it more from here as they are planning more weekends for 2010 and its well worth it x

Circles SS Challenge

I have no idea what I was thinking when I made this card, I think it was a case of how many different circle things could I put on it, this cards for this weeks SS Challenge which is Circles.

I have made my background with Tim Holtz stamps, cos they circle shape and kinda go with travel and time which is how this card ended up turning out, as the huge stamp in the middle is a compass, I stamped that a few times on different papers and layered it up and in the middle is a little watch face, yes its a rather wacky card but it should make the challenge, hope its ok and thanks for stopping in xx

I have photographed this card and not to sure about how the photo looks!!!!!!!! never mind you get the idea, its an 8 by 8 card, so a nice large canvas to work on, I made some nice bright coloured background paper with the good old alcohol inks, the stamp is a paperbag studio one, I loved doing the block colours for the backing papers and the matting, the flowers are stamps from Wendy Vecchi and I think they have worked rather well, hope you think so to, I finished of with a brad in the middle of the flowers, hope you like and thanks for looking xx
