Design Team Make - 16th November 2018 (Let It Snow) My Time To Craft Challenge #384



It's time for the "My Time To Craft" fortnightly challenge.  This time the prompt is "Let It Snow" #384.

I started off with a piece of pale blue plain cardstock.  Using a Versamark ink pad, I stamped the image of snowflakes and then coated in Wow "Bright White" super fine embossing powder.  I then heat embossed to set the snowflakes.

I die cut the dry embossed circle using a Spellbinders die from their "Blooming Collection".

I stamped the sentiment and then die cut into the decorative shape using a Spellbinders "Victorian Tags" die set.  I added some sequins to the snowflakes to add a little subtle icey shimmer to the card.

Artist Trading Coin using Indigoblu "Bumble Bee"


I absolutely love the Indigoblu "Bumble Bee" stamp and decided to make this Artist Trading Coin.

I had a section of patterned paper with a bee design on it.  I smeared some Gesson over the surface and left to dry.  I then stamped the Bee image, using Versafine Ink, onto the Gesso surface.  Die cut the circle and then inked the edges of the disc.

On a separate piece of card, I stamped the Bee again and cut the shape out, with the exception of the tricky legs.  I coloured the body of the Bee with a gold coloured Promarker.  I coloured the wings with a Sakura Jelly Roll pen, which added a shimmer look to the wings.  I added a clear sticky pad below the wing to give the look that the wings are lifted.  The body of the Bee I stuck flat to the disc.  Finally, I added some tiny sticky Adornit letters to spell the words "Bee Happy".

Purple Pixie Celebrate Card (Lavinia Stamps)




I've been playing with stamps and ink this afternoon, making this card using the following Lavinia Stamps:  Fairy Dandelions, Sacred Spells, Spanish Moss Foliage, Fairy Washing Line, Make a Dandelion and Birds.

I created the background using Distress Oxides and Pixie Powder in Violet/Purple shade.  I have heat embossed the dandelion wishes too.

Visible Image Christmas Cards


Today I've played with a Visible Image stamp set - "Peace, Love and Hope" to create a couple of Christmas cards.


For the top card, I used Distress Ink through the Visible Image "Time Tunnel" stencil.  The sentiment and reindeers are stamped in Versafine "Vintage Sepia" ink.

Week 46 - 52 Week Mini Art Card / Tag Challenge 2018


The prompt for Week 46 is "Cover a tag".

For my tag, I started off with a background created with several shades of Distress Oxides.  I used two shades of Versafine Ink - Black Onyx and Smokey Grey ink to stamp many Lavinia Stamp images.

The Lavinia Stamps I've used are the following:  Single Skeleton Tree, Fairy Foragers, Fairy Wishes, Fern Heads, Birds, Fairy Barnacle, Large Owl, Lunar Buds, Sacred Spells, Wallace Family and Badger 2.

Finally, I added some shimmer using a Sakura Jelly Roll pen and coloured the moon with a white Signo Pen.

As this tag fits the brief, I have decided to enter it into the Lavinia Stamps monthly challenge https://woobox.com/546nbo/gallery/wmf0lCKibNM
