The Other Side of a Kiss

Hello Nomad friends.  I made another card using the lovely Geisha and Bamboo stamps from Lost Coast Designs.

I stamped and masked the Geisha and then stamped the Bamboo with distress oxide ink.  Simple, but a great thinking of you, or maybe even a sympathy card.

It's Just Tea

Hello.  Welcome.  Happy Solstice.  We've had a day full of all sorts of weather.  Keeps you on your toes when you aren't sure if it's raining, hailing, blowing or shining from one moment to the next.

I cut white card with Stamplorations Zen coffee2 cover plate die.  I gave it a rough watercolour wash with blue Brusho.  I stencilled a piece of dark blue card with Salty Ocean distress oxide through Stamplorations Dots and Dashes stencil.  I glued the die cut over the stencilled card and cut with an arch tag die from Sizzix.  I stamped a sentiment from Stamplorations New Beginnings stamp set on vellum using Fossilised Amber DOx, cut it with the die and added it to the cup.  A bit of wool and done.

Smart Fox

Hello.  Welcome.  I was hunting through a box of pre-stamped images and came across this cute little fox that I had stamped on a scrap of patterned paper.  In the interests of trying to use up some UFO I searched a little further and found a sentiment I had stamped on a scrap of shrink plastic, but never skrunk!!  Well, they seemed made for each other....

I found a white ATC base and smooched Ripe Persimmon and Mowed Lawn distress ink on it.  I fussy cut the Unity fox and skrunk the sentiment and put it all together.  

We should all take some time each day to be overwhelmed by the sheer amazingness of it all.

Mistletoe and Roses

Hello Nomad friends.  Another warm day here in Norway so I decided to chill and go all Christmas and bling.  The challenge at the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity for the rest of this month is Face On.  Use a human face on your stamped makes.  I decided to use Lost Coast Designs gorgeous Mistletoe Goth, with supporting action from Sketchy Rose and Peace Dictionary Words.  

I kinda cased my own design that I used Mistletoe Goth for last month, keeping her slightly off the right hand side, but I got a bit more arty on the left hand side, masking and stamping the Peace dictionary words and, with the help of a bit more masking, stamping and embossing the Sketchy Rose with white tinsel embossing powder.  I used Promarkers on the main image and lots of blingy iridescent glitter glue.  

Do hop over to the Portal for all the details, more photos, lots of inspiration from the team and to link up your Face On stamped makes for your chance to win Lost Coast dollars$$$$!!
