ATSM Challenge 93

Hi Everybody,

Thanks so much for your lovely comments. They were all very much appreciated.

It is Wednesday again and time for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More …  Challenge #93 – Holiday!!!

Wonder which holiday you’ll be showcasing!  Please take the time to check out the full details of the challenges and their rules, which can be found here.

Sherry at A Random Fan is sponsoring us again

… and my DT piece for our ‘Holiday’ Challenge is one-layer minimalist CAS  … and I went for a Christmas theme …

Happy Christmas

 

Yes, you’re seeing right, it’s green and pink for Christmas. Just in case you’re wondering if I haven’t any other inks in my stash given that at the moment all my cards seem to feature these colours … I do have plenty of other colours in my stash, but they are still downstairs, and I have moved most of my crafting stash upstairs … plus pink and green are the heart chakra colours and I do love using them together, they are real feel good colours …

Anyway back to my card … I inked my Christmas Tree in green and stamped it directly on my base card. Next I inked the stars from the same stamp in pink and stamped them slightly higher to one side of my tree. I then stamped some stitching and my sentiment before finishing off by adding some pink gems. Easy and quick, great if you have to make lots of cards.

Hope that you feel inspired to enter this week’s ‘Holiday’ challenge at ATSM, please pop over and see all the other creations of the fabulous ATSM DT Team.

 … look forward to seeing your creations … and
Happy Crafting!!!!

I was so lucky to meet some of my Teamies in London on Easter Monday. Kylie, Sandie and Sue, it was great meeting you. Back to the challenge …

It is Wednesday again and time for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More …  Challenge #92 – Make your mark!!!

… and this is my DT piece for our Anything Goes Challenge …

 

Zentangle 1

Yes, you’re seeing right, I have been doodling again trying my hand at Zentngles. I was inspired to make this card by a recent workshop at Happy Stampers Northwest I was lucky to attended as a guest. I have also been sorting out old magazines and found an article on Zentangling, that’s when I thought I’d give it a go. Some of the patters I made up myself, others were copied from tutorials. It is quite easy as all you need are some black fine liner pens and you’re ready to go.

Just for You - outside

 

This is the outside, and when you open it …

Just for You - inside

… as by magic, this little daisy giving Teddy Bear appears.

I thought the bold colours, large blooms and embossed texture made for an interesting card which didn’t need any further embellishing.

Happy Easter

I went for an Easter theme, and this time my clouds are more visible. I stenciled them on white card, stamped, coloured and fuzzy cut my bunny and layered it between two pieces of fringe cut green paper onto my stenciled card before adding a little chicken border at the bottom and layering first onto pink and then onto my white base card. I finished off by adding a ribbon and some splashes of glitter glue as my dew on the grass.
