And still more hearts to come! Stampotique Designers Challenge # 85′ wants us to do whatever makes us happy. There’s no doubt that crafting makes me very happy… especially creating ATCs for swaps with creative people all over the world! Moreover, Kira’s cute little monsters always make me smile.
As the monsters have been paper pieced and my ATCs features a Hero Arts sentiment, I’d also like to enter this ATC into the Blog named Hero ‘Snip N’ stick’ challenge.
Here’s another ATC featuring a heart. This one’s for Stampotique Designers Challenge # 84 ‘Love theme’.
I coloured the heat embossed Tim Holtz heart using wax crayons and added a bit of dimension with Glossy Accents.
Stampotique Designers Challenge # 82 focuses on die cuts and punches and Wicked Wednesday has chosen ‘Gothic Love’ as this fortnight’s theme. I really enjoyed making this rusty heart ATC:
I used wrinkle free distressing to create the background and overstamped it with a script stamp (Darkroom Door). I stamped the Stampers Anonymous mosaic stamp with Brilliance ink on a torn piece of crimson paper. I used a Tim Holtz mini heart die to cut the shape out of golden cardstock, which I then dry embossed using the cuttlebug ‘clockworks’ folder. Next, I heat embossed the raised parts with copper embossing powder to create a rusty look.
That’s the kind of Valentine’s heart I like, I hope you do too!
I’ve been creating a number of snowman ATCs for a swap in our Yahoo-group and this is the card I made as a treat for my swap partner:
It’s my entry for the current Dilly Beans ‘Snowmen’ challenge.
- Snowmen (digi): Dilly Beans
- Stripes – Baroque background: Darkroom Door
- Postage mark: Circular sentiment: Hero arts – Snowman inside the circle: Artemio
We’re probably all dreaming of a white Christmas here in Belgium, but we’re only getting rain, rain and more rain! This foul weather really makes me long for bright and sunny days, so I thought it’d be fun to show you one of my springtime/summer projects.
This is my entry for the following challenges:
- Dragon: Third Coast
- Fairy, tree and sparkles: Lavinia
- Sentiment: Scrolls Work
I know, I’ve been neglecting my blog and my google reader of late, but I’ve been very busy creating cards for the Holiday Season.
I must admit I’m not a Christmas kind of person, but I always succeed in finding a way to give my holiday cards a bit of a twist and in the end I’m having loads of fun creating them!
This year, Stampotique plays the leading part in many of my Christmas cards!
Stampotique Designers Challenge #77 is all about our favourite sentiment and there’s no doubt that my current favourite is the one I used on the following card(s):
Moreover, Stampotique Designers Challenge #78 wants us to use non traditional stamps for Christmas. This cute little hat (featured on the Christmas 5 sided cube) gives any of the Stampotique characters a festive look!
I used Dylusions sprays for the backgrounds and added a bit of texture using golden acrylic paint. The anarchy signs were created using bottle caps and an old credit card. Mink and Little hoo-hoo have been coloured using watercolour pencils.
I’d also like to enter both cards into the Poisoned Peas Please ‘Twisted holidays’ challenge.
With these cards, I’d like to wish you all a wonderful Holiday Season!
Hello there! It’s been way too long since my last blog post, but I’ll try to be a better girl from now on (with Santa approaching and all…)!
Here are two ATCs inspired by a song peformed by a Belgian artist called ‘Stash’.
I’d like to enter both ATCs into the following challenges:
The first ATC also fits the theme ‘Faces’ currently running at:
- Face: Third coast stamps
- Design scrap: Stampers Anonymous
- Border: Technique Tuesday
And here’s my source of inspiration:
Thanks for looking!
