Sunday Stampers Week 13 challenge

This week's Sunday Stamper challenge is 'Faces' so I used 3 of my favourite images and fb pages. However, for some unknown reason, my scanner hasn't picked up the red areas so I am hoping this is only a temporary blip as it's a new one. Sorry you will just have to image it. lol

I have quite a few birthdays coming up over the next month so thought it was time I got myself organised and started making some of them. Really enjoyed making all these. Suppose that's why I enjoy stamping so much, as every card can look so different.

Sunday Stampers Week 12 challenge

The Sunday Stampers this week is 'Family'. I thought this image would be lovely and reminded me of my sister and I when we were young!! Used Tim Holtz 2 shades of orange for the backing and most of my Adirondak inpads to colour the image with my dabbers. Finished off with a Memories sentiment and Jennie's Clock stamp.

Envelope - Bugs & Critters.

Ok, I know I have gone complete OTT with this envelope but, I enjoyed doing it so much, I just couldn't stop myself. The scans do not do it justice as everything shimmers with the glimmer mists I have used so you will just have to imagine it. lol. Have tried to reflect a garden in all different times of day, morning, lunchtime, evening and night. The querky side of the insert is the night time theme when all the little critters are going to bed or, like the owl, waking up. Hope you enjoy looking at this as I really do not want to part with it!!

Birthday Envelope - postal

The Craft Swap Forum will be celebrating it's 2nd birthday soon and to honour this occasion our esteemed Administrator, Simon (the dragon!!) has decided to set a challenge for us all. We have to decorate an envelope and insert which will then be made up into a book. This is my effort for the Postal Theme and hope you enjoy looking at it. I am also on the Seventh Heaven Team but this will be entirely different as everything will be inked and stamped.

Sunday Stampers Week 11 challenge

The theme for the Sunday Stampers this week is Journey. I have used my Tim Holtz car, map and sentiment together with a Morris Minor stamp and a new one, I acquired at the NEC, the old bike. Stamped the map straight onto my card with Adirondak inks in red, blue and brown and stamped the images on separate cream card with black Stazon inkpad. I cut them out and mounted them, with silicone glue onto the card. Finished off by smudging further Adirondak inks around the edge.

This is a small selection of cards I have made using a few of my new stamps. The Art Nouveau ones, I particularly love, and were the quickest cards I have made for ages. They are from Sharon Duncan's Art Nouveau disc.

Altered art

Well, as promised, I did decide to 'alter' my Sunday Stamper card. However, the finished effect would be much better if the images were done with black ink - something I will try another day.
