SDC Anything Goes week 3

  It's another Anything Goes week for ~{SDC}~ and I've used my most favourite snowman stamp and my new favourite penguins:

I've added some ink splatters to the card blank for my base, then stamped ~{Snowman}~ onto card and added ~{Mini Christmas Ornaments Cube}~ to one of his arms, then coloured him slightly and cut him out. I've then stamped ~{Penquins}~, coloured them and cut them out.

Everything has been stuck on with silicone glue for dimension and I finished off with some glitter glue and ~{Merry Kiss-mas}~.

Check out the ~{SDC Blog}~ for more inspiration.

This is my last post for 2014 as I try and get things together for Christmas.

Thank you to all who follow my blog and this is my card to you to wish you 
a very Merry Christmas 
and a Happy and healthy New Year.

Tando Sparkle

On ~{Tando}~ this week we are all about the sparkle and I made this card using the ~{Set of 5 Snowflake Masks}~ and ~{Mini Snowflakes}~:

I made a video showing how I made the card. Watch out for me chasing the gem around the pack with tweezers for a while and then giving up and using my fingers!

Note the cheapo kids glitter glue - I've had it for years!

I also made a slightly smaller card using the same technique, but without the Mini Snowflake:

SDC 176 Anything Goes week 2

This week for the ~{Stampotique Designer's Challenge}~ I've made another Christmas card and it's how I feel when it's time to write my cards:

I've stamped ~{Tangled Enthusiasm}~ and ~{O Joy}~ directly onto the card blank and watercoloured them then added bling to the lights. I hand wrote the quote and doodled around the words and the card blank. Their faces say it all!! Bah Humbug!!

You can enter the challenge up to 5 times to be in with the chance of winning $30 to spend in the ~{Stampotique Store}~. Full details on the ~{SDC Blog}~ along with more inspiration from the rest of the team.

Tando Black and Gold

This week has been a black and gold week on ~{Tando}~, so I made another quick and easy Christmas card (I'm stubbornly refusing to spend too long on cards!):

I've painted one of the ~{Brush Stroke Trees}~ with black acrylic paint then stamped part of ~{Design Cube}~ and embossed with gold powder including the star.

I doodled a border and stuck the tree on, finishing off with a greeting stamp.

Tando Christmas

It's another Christmas week on ~{Tando}~ and I've made another card:

I painted 3 baubles from the ~{Small Bag of Baubles}~ with acrylic paint, blending to create shading. Once dry, I doodled the borders, added Glossy Accents and stuck some tinsel around the middle. Once this was dry I added some highlights using white pen.

They have been stuck to the card on top of a snowflake swirl stamp I think is from Penny Black, it's an old one, but I love it. And a greeting stamp added. 

If you don't count the drying time (which I don't) it's a quick and simple card!

SDC 175 In the words of Edgar Allan Poe

This week's ~{Stampotique Designer's Challenge}~ is set by ~{Kay}~ and she would like us to use a quote by Edgar Allan Poe. I won't lie, this one stumped me and filled me with fear! I don't know much at all about him so I googled quotes and found that I've actually used a few of them before on journal pages!!

I went with a tag:

I made a gelato background and stamped ~{Helping Hands}~ over it. ~{Friend}~ was then stamped onto the tag as I thought he really is the best character for the quote! I like the way he is standing in the puddle of my soul, just staring at me, pitifully!

I've added ~{Crow Line}~ because I had to, there will probably be quite a few crows from us this week ;)

Finally I inked the edge of the tag and stamped ~{Circles Cubed}~ around the edges for detail before finishing off with some ribbon and shading.

Head over to the ~{SDC Blog}~ to check out the rest of this week's team and then join us to be in with the chance of winning a $30 voucher to spend in the ~{Stampotique Store}~.
