Rosy ....


Made a couple of foam stamps using some rose dies ....  I have then used them to make a mailart postcard for a swap over on UK Stampers Forum ....

I cut some white card to 6 x 4 inches and coloured with blended Distress inks in Worn Lipstick and Fired Brick, splashing with water and lifting some colour.

I then used the foam stamps with Versamark ink and a number of iridescent metallic heat embossing powders to make the design as shown. A die-cut insect (made from foil paper, stamped with black Stazon) and a printed word, edged with Brilliance ink.

The card was strengthened by layering on re-cycled packaging and finished by edging with gold Krylon pen before spraying with acrylic sealant to protect through the post.

Chirp Chirp .....


A card made for a Challenge over on UK Stampers Forum .... using a swapped stamp to make something ....

I started with a white 6 x 6 inch card blank. I then die-cut a piece of feather printed paper and framed this with another die-cut frame in white card.

The bird stamp was stamped 3 times in shades of Impress die ink on glossy photo paper which were trimmed out. The frame was applied to to the card on foam pads and the feather paper stuck in place.

The birds were applied centrally on foam pads and the design was embellished with sequins centred with purple gems. Some purple Stickles glitter glue was applied on the birds eyes.

The sentiment was stamped on white card with Versafine black ink, trimmed out and edged with black ink before applying as shown to finish the card.

Orient .....


A set of ATC's in the theme of 'Oriental' made for a swap over on UK Stampers Forum ...

I used re-cycled packaging for the bases which were cut to 3.5 x 2.5 inches.  They were covered with some oriental gold metallic printed paper and were then stamped with a convolvulus stamp in Versamark ink and heat embossed with metallic gold/red embossing powder. The tags were die-cut and stamped before adding stickers, metal charm & gem. An eyelet was added and threaded with gold twine.

The background was then embellished with half a black fabric flower and a matt red brad and a square gold jewel brad.  The tags were edged in Brilliance red ink before placing as shown with foam pads on the ATC's.

Each of the ATC's were also edged in the same Brilliance ink to finish.

A set of Artist Trading Coins made for a swap in UK Stampers Forum .....

They are made on die-cut bases of re-cycled packaging and measure 2.5 inches in diameter.  The background is made from Distress Ink in spiced marmalade and fired brick applied with a foam blender. I then have spattered with water and dabbed dry to distress the colour.

The stylised flowers and stems are stamped in Archival black ink and the leaves stamped in Galaxy gold Brilliance ink.  I have then overstamped some flowers with Versamark ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  The sentiment has been stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Some gold pen was added to highlight portions of the stamped flowers.

I applied some spots of Glossy Accents and some purple clear dots, edging the coins in purple Versamagic chalk ink to finish ....

Foam ....


We have a Challenge this month over on UK Stampers Forum where we are to make a stamp from foam using a die to cut it. Then make something using the stamp .... this is mine ....

I used 3 mm thick fun-foam and die-cut this with the flower die which I then glued to a piece of thick black card as a base. It cut very easily.

I then dug out my Adirondack inks and inked the stamp with wild plum ink and stamped 3 times onto a piece of white card.  I then used a waterbrush and spread the ink.  I then used butterscotch and denim inks to make washes to produce a background.  Once happy I dried with a heat gun, trimmed out and matted onto black card, sticking onto a fuschia coloured card base on foam pads. A small amount of Stickles glitter glue was applied to the flowers.

The sentiment was stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder on black card.  This was trimmed out and applied as shown on more foam pads.

Great idea to make extra stamps from your dies.  If you fancy joining in do click HERE to join the Forum ... we are Fun, Friendly & Fun .... all are welcome !!!

Dragonfly .....


We are running a monthly Challenge over on UK Stampers Forum to use a circulating stamp from each person in a make ..... this one is mine using a members stamp ! Decided to make a tag !

I started by inking the stamp with Versamark ink and used black embossing powder to heat emboss the design onto white card.  This was then coloured using Distress Oxide inks (the embossing resisting the ink).

This was trimmed out and matted onto a piece of iridescent foiled paper which was subsequently matted onto black card.

The die-cut dragonfly has been cut from more foiled paper and applied with pearl brads over the image. I used a piece of gold foiled Washi tape saying 'Hi There'.

Finishing touch was to add a piece of folded silver ribbon secured with a red staple.

Urban .....


I made this tag for a monthly swap over on UK Stampers Forum .....

I used a black textured card background cut to size and started by stamping with Versamark  & heat embossing with some Jasper powder which has a gold/brown colourway.

I then added a number of strips of Washi tape and splattered with white acrylic paint.

The main house images are by Teesha Moore, stamped in Memento black trimmed out and coloured with Copic markers .... wanted to add a bit of colour so went with Pink.  The houses were matted onto silver foil card and trimmed out before adding on foam pads.

The tag was edged with yellow Versamagic chalk ink and a fine line added with yellow Posca marker. A hole was punched and a silver eyelet added with the Crop-a-dile and this was threaded through with some silver and pink velvet ribbon to finish.

Women ......


Wanted to make a set of ATC's in the theme of 'Women' for the swap over on UK Stampers Forum so decidied on a vintage look.

The backgrounds were made with distress ink on paper which was applied to a background of re-cycled corrugated board.  The images are Tim Holtz paper dolls which I have coloured with Copic markers. Once applied some grey Copic was added to provide shadows for the ladies.  I stamped swirls on the left hand side of each ATC in Versafine black ink.

The words are printed and coloured with a black edge.  Each ATC has been edged with Versamagic chalk ink to finish !

Alice Day .....


Made this Artist trading Coin which is 2.5 inches in diameter as an entry into the 'Alice Day' Challenge running until 5th July over on UK Stampers Forum .... the idea originated from Jannet Blay who is a great 'Alice in Wonderland' fan. If you would like to join in the Challenge click HERE to go to the Forum ... it's free, fun & friendly.  All you have to do to enter is make something with stamping, take a photo and upload to an Album.  The winner will be randomly chosen (so no judging), and will win a fabulous 'Alice' prize kindly donated by Jannet !

I made the background from some tissue paper which came from Jannet and applied this to a die-cut circle made from re-cycled cereal packaging.  I used a brush and acrylic matte medium to apply the tissue.

Once completely dry I directly stamped the Hatter and coloured him with alcohol ink pens and Posca markers. The pocket watch was stamped directly but I also stamped again on white card and trimmed out the numerals which were stuck in place over the stamped image on the coin. Some silver pen dots were added. I then stamped the 'Alice' word in Archival black ink and embellished with three matte metallic heart brads.

I backed the coin with two more layers of packaging and edged with red chalk ink to finish.

I have used black & gold pens to add a border and some highlighting.  The card was backed with a layer of re-cycled board for strength and sprayed with matte acrylic sealer to protect in the post !

Pink & black .....


I have used a swapped stamp to be the centre of this pink and black folding boxcard over on UK Stampers Forum ...

The main image was stamped in Memento ink and selectively coloured in rose pink Copic marker on white card before trimming out.  I applied some Stickles glitter glue to the wings. The box was die-cit and assembled as were the balloon, star & streamer along with the Celebrate sentiment.

I covered the bottom panels of the box in black & white circle print papers.

Some black and iridescent pink sequins were added to finish ....

Prickles .....



Just finished a crochet cactus project contained in a real terracotta pot.

The main cactus was made as one piece in two colours of cotton DK yarn and sewn together before being stuffed firmly with polyester fibres.  The flower and its centre were then made and sewn together.

The soil was crocheted using amigurumi methodology and also firmly stuffed.  All components were then assembled to produce the Cactus.

Beauty is it has no prickles, needs no care and can be used as a pin cushion !

Fantasy .....


Another card made with a Brusho background on watercolour paper ....

I used a white 6 x 4 inch card blank and cut a piece of watercolour paper slightly smaller. Now time to get messy .....

I first wet the watercolour paper with water from an spray bottle and then sprinkled Brusho crystals in Violet, Sea Green & Turquoise allowing the colours to develop.  I used a waterbrush to spread the colour to suit and when happy dried with a heat gun.

I then stamped the card with a couple of silhouette fairy stamps and some 'heart' grass using Versafine Onyx Black ink and dried with the heat gun.  I then used a white Posca marker to make highlights as if to mimic a moonlit scene.  The apertures in the wings were glittered with crystal Stickles and some spots in Posca and in Stickles added.

To finish I edged with more Posca , sprayed with acrylic sealer and stuck the design onto the card blank adding a stamped sentiment edged in black on foam pads.

Souvenir ......



I am taking part in a 12 month Challenge in UK Stampers Forum where we choose a stamp which then circulates round to all the 12 participants who each make something using the stamp !  This is my collaged wall-hanger using the postcard stamp ......




I stamped the main image onto Kraft card and trimmed out .... this forms the central image on the collage.  I have also used printed papers, paper tape & a real stamp to decorate.




I have used laser cut edges to frame the postcard which is mounted on foam pads. Some other stamping along with a glass cabochon.




The whole piece is matted on green textured and yellow card with some penwork and brown chalk ink (Versamagic) to edge components.  The collage is hung using a couple of brass hangers fixed with brads and threaded through with some black satin ribbon.

I have tried to preserve the vintage Kraft card look throughout with some little dashes of colour !

Captivate .....



Decided to make a 3D shadowbox which measures 12 x 9 cms. I wanted to use a pastel pink & blue theme to keep it light and cheerful !

This is also my entry into the Craft Stamper Magazine 'Take It Make It' Challenge for April whose subject is 'Anything Goes' .....




The shadowbox comes in three die-cut pieces and I used a pearlescent pastel pink card for the box and a pastel blue for the frame. The two components were folded and glued together to form the shadowbox which I framed with some blue Stickles glitter glue.




I then chose 3 printed papers from 6 x 6 stock and trimmed out the leaves and flowers which I stuck in place at different levels within the box to produce a 3D effect.




I then stamped the Bird and hearts (Crafty Individuals) in black Memento ink and coloured as shown with Copic Alcohol Ink Markers before trimming out. I then took a wooden cocktail stick, trimmed to size and coloured with brown Copic Markers and stuck this in place with Glossy Accents onto which I attached the bird supported on foam pads.




The pink frame was then also die-cut and stuck in place over the blue front. The stamped hearts were applied on foam pads top left and a number of pink and blue sequins attached with more Glossy accents added to provide some bright elements to the design.

Finishing touches were to add some pink velvet and blue grosgrain ribbons tied through a hole at the top. The word 'Captivate' was stamped on blue card which was trimmed and matted on pink card & applied on foam pads to finish.
