The theme for the challenge over at Clarity Stamp Challenge blog this month is Winter so I decided to create this snowglobe card, I made my own stencil for the snowglobe from a file cover.
I wrote instructions in order to put it on a site I belong to called Instructables, you can see them here.I would love it if you went and voted for me in the competition over there (you have to become a member to vote but that is free) There are all sorts of instructables on that site, just check it out – not only crafty stuff but pretty much anything you can imagine!
I used the Re mountable Winter Wonderland clear stamp set and the 21 Remountable Winter Trees Clear Stamp Set along with Chipped Sapphire and Vintage Photo Distress ink
Only another few days to enter our “Anything Goes challenge” over at Crafty Bloggers Network to win a prize from Rick St Dennis. Here is my inspiration Monday card using the cute little bear waiting at the North Pole.
I know, I know and bit of a corny title but I really couldn’t resist it 🙂 The Freebie Friday this week over at the Gina’s Designs blog is a file to allow you to make a cracker. I made mine with an autumn feel but they would make super Halloween treats for the kids, just fill them with some sweeties and you are good to go.
It my Hubbies birthday today and I made him a card with my new Clarity stamp shape set, its the first time I tried making the clouds in the sky so it took me 3 attempts to get it how I wanted it but I am very pleased with the results.
I have been following the blog of John Bloodworth for quite a while now as I love to see what he creates, especially with the Inkadinkado Stamping Gear sets. I just had to have a go at the single layer cards that John made here as I thought they would be great for a set of cards.
Here is my take on them
I used a Clarity Stamp for the greeting but I am afraid I cannot remember where the background stamp came from. I used a Distress marker to create the line along the edge.
I saw this Take it Make it challenge via a link on Hels Sheridan’s blog and thought I would have a go at the splatter thing. It is quite a while since I had a play just for the sake of it so I really enjoyed making this. I covered a canvas with tissue paper and then painted it (once dry) with Distress Paint and added some distress stain to make the splatters. I used gilding wax on the folds of the tissue paper to highlight them a little. The stamp I used for the raindrops is from Designs by Ryn (I just love this stamp!) and the sentiment is from Sheena Douglas. I got to play with my Melt pot too, I made the flowers and leaves from an old book using the tattered floral and tattered garland dies with distress ink and then they got a dunking in some clear UTEE.
I made this project some time ago and had forgotten all about it until I was reminded that it was due up on the Splodge Away blog today! It is craftcycle week this week and the team have got some pretty awesome projects lined up for you
I used the fancy lattice mask to make the patterns in the paint on the wooden part and I used the Floral Framer mask to make the flowers.
Its time for a new challenge over at the Crafty Bloggers Network Challenge blog and this month we are sponsored by the talented Rick St Denis who has a whole range of digital stamps to suit almost everyone.
Here is my DT card
