Hello there! Its Christmas card club time again and the theme this fortnight I think is icicles. Neither my mum nor I had the right stuff to follow this theme so we both opted for anything goes. I used my new'ish' stamps from pink ink and made two brightly coloured cards...
I thought the fancy things at the top looked a bit icicle like!!! And my mum thought the same about the stamped images at the top of her card! Mum used chloe stamps.
Good morning all! Its Christmas card club today - I told my lovely mum the theme was Carol singers - and followed that myself - but apparently the theme was anything goes! Ooops! Nevermind - here's what we did!
I used diecuts from Tim Holtz and some gelli prints from my lovely new round plate...
There's actually 4 of them but you get the idea!!!
Hello there! I can't believe its already been a week since I went to a fabulous Aall and Create class with Jo Rice in Carnforth - it was such a lovely day - we made a folder from scratch and used Aall and create stamps that we already owned to decorate it. Here's mine which I was super pleased with - I am going to use it to store my smaller sets of aall and create stamps!
As always it was the company that really made the day for me - lovely time indeed!
Hi there - I am over at the Chocolate Baroque blog today with samples from the August shows where you will have seen some beautiful house stamps. Here are the samples I am showing today ...I will explain how I made them over there! Hope to see you over there!
Hello there - I am posting for Countyview challenges today - its my challenge - under the sea. My inspirational post today involves a picture of my Penny as a mermaid. She has always loved mermaids and had the opportunity at Center Parcs this summer to be one - and the photo that they took is the source of my inspiration for my project.
Having fussy cut the Penny mermaid out I started a canvas using another paperartsy stencil and some opaque paste.
Once dry I used paperartsy paints and cut and dry foam to colour the background.
Hello there! How are you? Its the first of September - wow - scary - especially since I'll be back to work tomorrow! Yikes! How fast did July and August go? Good thing though is that we have a new challenge at Countryview Crafts and this month its my theme and I have chosen 'Under the Sea' ...every time I say that I start singing the Disney song! Anyway - I would like to see your underwater themed makes. I decided to make a canvas - its A4 in size and I used a new paperartsy-large-stencil and also another stencil plus opaque texture paste.
Next I applied lots of paints with my fingers - oh I love getting messy!!!
