Funky Fossil Funky Floral Heat Embossed Card


Here's a little card I made using a selection of Funky Fossil Designs products.

I used an off-cut of gelli plate background I had made some months ago, where I used Pan Pastels and three Funky Fossil stencils:  Distressed Diamonds, Forest Foliage and Peony Panel. I then used a Carabelle Studio "Postcard" stamp for an all-over design.

Using Wow! Opaque White Super Fine enbossing powder, I multi stamped the flowers using the Funky Fossil "Funky Florals" stamp set.  For the "Peace" sentiment, I used another Funky Fossil stamp set called "Winter Wonderland".

Stampers Anonymous "Perspective CMS213" Butterfly Card

Today I have been playing with two shades of Distress Oxide inks:  Everygreen Bough and Speckled Egg".

I used a Carabelle Studio stamp called "Postcard Background" stamped in Versafine Clair "Warm Breeze" ink.  I then used "Evergreen Bough" Distress Oxide Ink through the Funky Fossil Stencil "Harlequin" stencil.

I used two Stampers Anonymous stamp sets for the butterfly (Perspective CMS213) and for the sentiment (Tiny Text CMS394) both stamped in Versafine Clair "Blue Belle" ink.  I stamped the scrolls in the same ink, I think they are from an old 7gypsies stamp set.

Tim Holtz Toadstool Poison Tag


I've been playing with a selection of Tim Holtz goodies to create this tag.

It started off with a piece of patterned paper a gift had been wrapped in, which I adhered to a tag base. I then applied a few brush strokes of Paper Artsy "Lake Wanaka" chalk acrylic paint and then some "Rusty Hinge" Distress Oxide to the tag, leaving a floral area exposed.

Using "Crackling Campfire" Distress Oxide through a Funky Fossil stencil called "Abstract Ovals".  I used a script stamp for extra detail with Versafine Clair "Acorn" brown ink.  

I splattered the white and black dots using Posca pens then masked off areas of the tag to stamp the chicken wire, by Creative Expressions in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.

Finally, I added the poison and the Toadstool (part of the Tim Holtz Baseboard set - TH94060) and the sentiment of "an unfortunate ending" using a Tim Holtz sticker book (TH94059).

Funky Fossil Designs new stamp launch "Silly Snowmen"


Today, Funky Fossil Designs launch five fabulous new clear stamp sets.  For this sample, I have used the brilliant "Silly Snowmen" set, which I think may be my favourite of the five sets!


For this sample I used one of the Funky Fossil round MDF hanging decorations.  I coated both sides with Paper Artsy "Caribbean Sea" chalk acrylic paint and set aside to dry.

I then stamped the snowman image on to white card using Versafine Clair "Medieval Blue" ink.  I coloured the image with Distress Oxide inks applied with a brush and a Posca pen. I then fussy cut the image.

Returning to the now dry MDF disc, I stamped the sentiment using the same "Medieval Blue" ink and then used Paper Artsy "Snowflake" chalk acrylic paint with a brush to create the snow and the flakes and set aside to dry.

Once dry, I adhered the snowman image onto the MDF disc and added some "Crystal" Stickles to add a glisten to the snow.

Funky Fossil Designs new stamp launch "Time For Tea"


Today, Funky Fossil Designs launches five brilliant new clear stamp sets.  I've used the "Time For Tea" set for this sample.


I have stamped the coffee pot and cup in Versafine Clair "Fantasia" and coloured them with Signo and Posca pens.

The corner detail is from another Funky Fossil stamp set called "Scandi Garden" also stamped in the "Fantasia" shade of ink.

Funky Fossil Designs new stamp launch "Whimsy Town" bookmark

Today, Funky Fossil Designs launch five fabulous new stamp sets.  I've used the new "Whimsy Town" for this book mark sample.


The "Whimsy Town" stamp set is designed by Donna Gray and has a great selection of quirky buildings, ideal for so many projects.

To make this book mark, I cut a piece of card to size and started with the sky, using "Tumbled Glass" Distress Oxide Ink with the Funky Fossil "In The Clouds" stencil.

I used the torn edge of copy paper to create the landscape with "Twisted Citron" and "Mowed Lawn" Distress Oxide Inks.

I then stamped the image of the house/tree in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.  I stamped the image again on white card and coloured it with Posca Pens.  I then fussy cut the shape and adhered over the stamped image on the tag.

I used a Stix2anything PVC Bookmark cover to protect the image, punched a hole in the top and added ribbon.
