Stop The Bus

Hello.  Welcome.  Do you ever see a challenge post and Mr Mojo goes 'those colours, that die, that stamp and we got it chickie!'  This happened this morning with the new Time Out challenge after I spotted the picture of the poodle with a bow on the shelf at the back!!

What no poodle!!  Nope, just black and white repeating patterns and a girl with a big polka dot bow.  I've used Poppystamps Pickering Snowflake Background die with white card and mounted on a black card base,  I stamped Carabelle Studios Kiss (thanks Dot) on white card and partially fussy cut.  I added it to the panel and stamped a small curved Gratulerer (congratulations) from Kort og Godt, and doesn't it just fit perfectly there!! 

Here's a close up of the Timeout moodboard that inspired me.

Cat with Flowers

Hello.  Welcome.  I've just added the card I sent to Tina to the Card Chain Challenge reveal.  I was a little bit late getting it in the post and it was a little slow traveling to Poland, but now it's there I can share it with you here.  The Card Chain Challenge is a monthly international card exchange.  You make a card, send a card, get a card.  Everyone gets a card, everyone wins!!  Here's the card I sent.

I used a purple card that had glitter in it for my base.  Then I cut 2 Marianne Design dies from silver mirror card.  I layered them with a circle of the same purple card and added the Marianne Designs fussy cut cat, stamped on floral paper.  The sentiment is from Crafty Individuals.  

You can see the complete reveal of cards that whizzed around the planet in August HERE.
If you would like to join the fun the October Sign Up is open.

Hope you are having a crafty day.  Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

Hello Hello Hello

Hello.  Welcome.  I've made a fun shaker card using Memory Box Underwater Scene.

I die cut Memory Box Underwater Scene from grey woodgrain card and gold mirror card.  I coloured the grey woodgrain die cut with Promarkers and added the gold frame over the top.  I used turquoise marble card base and added a layer of foam with a circle aperture.  I filled it with sequins, added an acrylic pane and a grey woodgrain panel.  Then I stuck the framed Underwater Scene on.  I die cut two fish from the underwater Scene set, foiled them with Colourcraft foil and added them on top of the acetate.  I used Poppystamp Hello Background die and cut the three hellos, which of course are much more fun than one!!

I Take Mine Black

Welcome Nomad friends.  The temperatures have cooled down this week, and the last few days have been wet and wild, so I have been hiding in my crafty space.  Tuesday we had an electrical inspection so the crafty space has finally been cleaned, decluttered and reorganised.  Previously I couldn't find things cos they were buried.  Now some idiot has moved stuff around and I still can't find things!!  But I expect I will get used to it, and it is really nice to not be moving a pile of stuff every time I want to do something.  Just gotta keep it tidy now!!  But first Christmas!!!

I've used with the Christmas Kickstart Challenge colours again.  I started by stamping Hero Arts Birds and Trees stamp on my blue card base using dark blue ink.  This stamp comes with a matching Sizzix embossing folder, but I didn't use that.  Then I cut Sizzix Twigs die from blue card, covered it with iridescent glitter glue and added it to the card front.  I love the result, great for colour co-ordinating if you don't have the right colour glitter paper.  Just remember to poke any extra glitter glue out of those little holes in the die cut before it dries.  Much easier I imagine bwhahhhaaaahaa.  I stamped The Greeting Farm Let It Snow bear on a scrap of white card, fussy cut and coloured with gel pens.  Found the sentiment already stamped on a scrap, cut it and backed with a scrap of glitter paper.  Then I thought I needed a tree line, so I stamped more of the trees from the Hero Arts stamp on more blue scraps, fussy cut them and added them across the card.  Well worth all that snipping.

Dance A Long A Dorothy

Hello Nomad friends.  Welcome to a new month and a new lot of challenges starting.  Gotta love a challenge LOL.  Over at Lost Coast Designs we are kicking off the month with a theme of Song and Dance so break out your dancer stamps or stamp a song and join the fun.

I think this little lady is dancing into OZ what with yellow floors and flying monkey skies!! I used Lost Coast Designs Robust Dancer, PMC Circle Frame and Carmen's Veranda Flying Monkey Background.

I stamped the dancer with black archival and masked her.

I stamped the circle frame stamp with Orange Blossom archival and masked that as well.

Then I stamped the Flying Monkey background with Sky Blue archival and unmasked everything.  I gave the circle floor a watercolour wash with yellow Brusho powder in water.  The dancer was coloured with distress inks and gel pens.

Grab your dancing shoes and join the fun for your chance to win Lost Coast Designs dollars!!  Plenty more inspiration today and the whole month over on the blog.  See you there.  Hugz
