The theme for the challenge over at Clarity Stamp Challenge blog this month is Winter so I decided to create this snowglobe card, I made my own stencil for the snowglobe from a file cover.
I wrote instructions in order to put it on a site I belong to called Instructables, you can see them here.I would love it if you went and voted for me in the competition over there (you have to become a member to vote but that is free) There are all sorts of instructables on that site, just check it out – not only crafty stuff but pretty much anything you can imagine!
I have been following the blog of John Bloodworth for quite a while now as I love to see what he creates, especially with the Inkadinkado Stamping Gear sets. I just had to have a go at the single layer cards that John made here as I thought they would be great for a set of cards.
Here is my take on them
I used a Clarity Stamp for the greeting but I am afraid I cannot remember where the background stamp came from. I used a Distress marker to create the line along the edge.
Its time for a new challenge over at the Crafty Bloggers Network Challenge blog and this month we are sponsored by the talented Rick St Denis who has a whole range of digital stamps to suit almost everyone.

Hi everyone, I hope we are all enjoying the sunshine, I know we are here. This week over on the SplodgeAway blog the theme is Summer Loving, I knew exactly what I was going to create as soon as I knew this. I have been to a demo at the Papeterie in Aberdeen by the brilliant Sue Wilson and she created a card similar to this so that is where my inspiration came from.
I had a couple of pieces of card left over from another project but not enough to create a complete background so I cut triangular strips and created the rays. I used the Psychedelic mask set and some wild honey distress ink on the Easy Ink card to create the paper originally.
Hop on over to the blog to see what the rest of the crew have in store for you this week.
Well ok they are not roses, but they are red When I started to colour this Bugaboo image , I had them in yellow, then I remembered that for the new challenge over at ABC challenges, they should be red, so I ended up colouring over the top. Thank goodness for Copic pens! I used a mask from SplodgeAway to make the background.
This week on the SplodgeAway blog myself and my fellow DT members are sharing our favourite things to do with our masks, one of my favourites is using them with my Gelli plate.
The masks are great for this, they clean up really well afterwards too. The effects you can create with them are great with both first and second prints. Go on, have a go, its great fun, even your kids can have a go, but beware its messy and adictive!
Here is a card I made using the Hex-o-Star Mask and a topper from a CD by La Pashe.
The lovely Heather over at Lacy Sunshine stamps is very kindly sponsoring the Crafty Bloggers Network Challenge this month and the prize is a whopping $20 gift certificate!
Here is the my design team card:
The image I used is called Lizabeth- Wild Daisies Digi Set, the papers just cried out to be used with her. I coloured her with copic’s and cut her out with a Nellie Snellen die. The theme this month is Metal Magic, so I used some rainbow mirror card for my flourishes (well its kind of metal isnt it!)
