The theme for the week this week over at the SplodgeAway blog is 2 masks 1 project. I have had this owl made up since I was down at my Mum’s house in the summer but never got around to doing anything with him. I found some dimensional glitter from Viva Decor in a craft shop down there and used it through the Ernie the Owl Disk, I thought it looked rather cool. The other mask I used for the embellishments and the card background is Leaf The Lot. I inked through the mask with perfect medium and embossed with gold embossing powder and then cut out the leaves. The background was made by simply embossing the card through the Grand Calibur and then applying distress ink over the top.
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.
The SplodgeAway show on Create and Craft tv last week was fab! there were SO many brilliant samples created for it I was blown away by them all. I am really very lucky to be part of such a talented DT, hop over to the SplodeAway Blog to see them all as they are being showcased there all this week. Here are the projects I made (although Suzie did a better job of showing them off – thanks Suzie):
For more details of the products and better pictures, please go take a look on the SplodgeAway Blog.
Hi everyone, I hope we are all enjoying the sunshine, I know we are here. This week over on the SplodgeAway blog the theme is Summer Loving, I knew exactly what I was going to create as soon as I knew this. I have been to a demo at the Papeterie in Aberdeen by the brilliant Sue Wilson and she created a card similar to this so that is where my inspiration came from.
I had a couple of pieces of card left over from another project but not enough to create a complete background so I cut triangular strips and created the rays. I used the Psychedelic mask set and some wild honey distress ink on the Easy Ink card to create the paper originally.
Hop on over to the blog to see what the rest of the crew have in store for you this week.
Today is the start of the SplodgeAway ‘Anything but a Card’ week and I am starting the week with this bird hanging
I used the SplodgeAway 6″x6″ Fancy Lattice Mask to make it along with some distress ink, an IndigoBlu stamp and a cutting file that my pal Gina made for the birds and the hearts. I decorated a couple of the hearts with my Martha Stewart clay.
Please pop over to the SplodgeAway Blog and see what the rest of the design team come up with for the rest of the week, I know you will be in for a treat.
Warning, picture heavy post.
Here we have my samples for the SplodgeAway show last Friday, Tom’s designs are so much fun to work with I ended up with 12 samples! I dare say I would have just carried on creating if I hadn’t had to get them in the post LOL
First up we have a bag and tag made with the Mask of many faces and chipboard shapes from Gina’s Designs:
Next up we have a postcard made with the same mask and tangled:
Lastly for this mask, we have a tag using Fran*tage powders and Gears from Gina’s Designs
Now we have a few cards using the Borders, first up the Tall Trees Border:
and the Floral border and Linked Butterflies border in this card along with Clarity Stamp’s Pretty petals and butterfly set and “Be the Change” stamp from the New Design Club
More Linked Butterflies, this time with a Gelli Plate background and stamps from Clarity Stamp (new design club and Leafy Swirl)
The next two cards use some of the Framer masks, the first one is using the Celtic Framer mask along with more Clarity Stamps (Large Deerscape, Dear Friend set and Letterbox kit) and the second uses the Celtic framer along with the Floral Framer and a rose stamp by Viva Decor along with another Clarity Stamp “Thinking of You”
