Add Some Text at Try it on Tuesday

Our new challenge at Try it on Tuesday is  Add Some Text - stamped, printed or hand written, it's up to you.

I wasn't prepared with this challenge and after not crafting for a couple of weeks, I decided to just do 'something' - no pressure if it didn't turn out right  - something for fun!  I've had this image, cut out from a magazine,  for ages and the quote, which |I heard somewhere, always stuck with me, so  I printed the quote out and cut apart.  The background was an experiment I did a while ago with inks and an acrylic block and I thought the colours perfectly suited this girl.  Some hand doodling around the edges and  done!

The rest of the team have some great inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog for all the details.

Thanks for calling in,

January Mid Month at Stamping Sensations


It's mid month inspiration time for the January Mood board at Stamping Sensations where you can choose your inspiration from the pictures.
This time I've chosen the RED flowers as my inspiration.
I've used an old A&C  border stamp (233).   I haven't stamped the whole image as I wanted to add a Happy Birthday sentiment.  My flowers were stamped again, coloured and fussy cut before adding.   The background was an inky mop up which was stencilled with Tumbled glass.  

There are some fabulous prizes on offer, so why don't you head over the the main page for all the details.

I've not been around much this year due to an ear infection from h***   but hopefully 2nd lot of antibiotics will clear it.
Catch up with you soon,

Winter Blues at Try it on Tuesday

 Our first challenge at Try it on Tuesday Winter Blues is and we would love you to join in with your Blue projects.

I've used a stencil from Sweet Poppy with Chipped Sapphire DI and stamped the snowy house with Twilight Versafine Clair, there's lots of snowy glitter, but of course it doesn't show.

The Design Team have some great samples to show, so please pop over to the main blog for all the details.

Stamping Sensations January Mood board


A slightly belated Happy New Year to You. 

We're starting the New Year at Stamping Sensations with a January Mood Board and there's lots of inspiration from images to colour, and there's wonderful prizes of stamps and stencils from ALL&Create, so please pop over to the challenge home page for all the details.

I took inspirations from the red gowns featured in two of the pictures and used these elegant ladies which is an old Flonzcraft stamp.  I paper pieced the red dress and added a fun quote.
The rest of the DT have some fabulous inspiration for you, so please call over, you won't be disappointed .

I'm pleased we're getting back to normal now,  Christmas and New Year were hectic and then we've had the twins 3rd Birthday! plus I've had a nasty throat and ear infection which didn't help.

Thanks for calling in, and I'll be catching up soon.
