Namasleigh - Three Room Studio Challengee #63


Happy Saturday!  Can you believe there's only four more Saturdays until Christmas?

Time for another challenge at Three Room Studio and this week's theme is to create a project with a CAS theme (Clean and Simple).

For my card I've used one of the images from the newly released Namasleigh digital stamp set which is so cute (don't you just love that man bun?) and such a good value because in there's four images and two sentiments in the package plus you have the option of adding the bun or not. I used an embossing folder for the background and then taped two circle dies together to get the 'wider on one side' shape, coloured the image and the card is done!  

Here's the list of my fellow Design Team members who are also participating:

New Home - Pink Petticoat

I wanted to make a card for a dear friend who is moving into a new place and the digital image
 called In My Garden from Pink Petticoat fits the bill.  Sadly, this company isn't in business anymore and I miss it because she had some cute images.  I know she was done for awhile and then came back under The Lovely Studio but that appears to be gone now too.

I used a die from Marianne Design Craftables #1248, coloured the image with Copics and it was done in a flash.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good week!

Oddball Reindeer - Stamping Bella

Hi there and I hope you are fine.  It's cold here and we have a bit of snow...  of course, when I say cold, it's not terribly cold.  If this was the first day in spring with this temperature we'd probably all be outside without a jacket and talking about what a lovely day it is!

Like almost everyone else, I'm getting pressed for time with getting my Christmas cards finished and the push is on!  These three cards were made with the Oddball Reindeer from Stamping Bella.  I've said it before but these Oddball images ae just the best and some of my favourite stamps!

This is a great stamp set because you get all three images plus the sentiment.  

I have to remember to make these images into Christmas tags for next year... they would be such fun on a package!

Thanks for stopping by!

Love is in the Air - All Dressed Up Challenge

Hi there!

It's time for a new challenge at All Dressed Up stamps and I've used the Love is in the Air digi image.  I used Tumbled Glass distress ink and a cloud template to make the clouds and then spattered the distress ink over what I had already done.

Be sure to head on over to the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog where you can see all kinds of inspiration from the rest of the girls on the team. Join us for some fun and wonderful creations at the Facebook Fan Page, Facebook Challenge (there is a theme for this one) and there's also a Pinterest page to view some more gorgeousness.

Oddball Marilyn - Stamping Bella


I can never get enough of the Stamping Bellas and this one just cracks me up too... love those eyes and I also think it's a terrific sentiment.  This one is Oddball Marilyn and the card is going to my daughter for her birthday because she's a very glitzy, sparkly glamour queen herself.

I wanted to try something different for the background but was a little timid because I didn't want to wreck the card with it being coloured and almost finished but the next one will have more purple in it.  After I had finished colouring the image, I masked it and scrubbed Shaded Lilac, Seedless Preserves  and Faded Jeans distress ink.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Congratulations - Three Room Studio Challenge

Hi there!  Today's post is for Three Room Studio's Saturday Challenge where the theme this week is 'Celebration' which is a great theme because it's open your interpretation and can be anything from celebrating a birthday, a new baby or just that you woke up to a wonderful day!

I used the Yay stamp set for the image and sentiment and this is another of my favourite Three Room Studio sets and I've used it many times.  The background is sponged with Tumbled Glass and Seedless Preserves distress ink and then ran it through my Big Shot with the Star Ray Full Stencil to emboss it and raise the stars.  When finished embossing and with the stencil still taped in place, I sponged Picket Fence over the stars.  Of course now it seems I could have been much bolder with the colours because it didn't photograph very well but it will be a good Congratulations card for someone on my list.

Karen is this week's host and the following team members are participating in the challenge:

Christmas Tags - TLC Designs

Today's project is some more Christmas tags.  I know I've said it before but truly, making Christmas tags is something I enjoy so much and they look so good on packages too.

To make this batch, I used all TLC Designs products from the dies to the paper to the images.  This teal coloured paper is one of my favourites.  I'm not big on printing my own paper but these designs are gorgeous and print off in the most beautiful shades of colour.

For more inspiration, news and a place to share your creations, be sure to check out the TLC Designs Creative Sharing Facebook page.  The TLC Designs You Tube channel has some great ideas, tutorials and inspiration to share as well.

Star Fairy - All Dressed Up Release

November!  Last month zipped right along and I expect November will too because it's getting close to Christmas and we all get so busy with plans and preparations for the holiday.

We have a new release at All Dressed Up stamps. I have been given the Fairy Star image to use and I think this is such a cute seasonal image.  I got a new pad of paper from Honey Bee and this teal piece seemed to be the perfect piece for the card.  

We've also got more new images and here's a snap of the three new ones and each one is adorable:

Gnome Tags - Trinity Stamps

Hi and I hope all is well with you.  Good here and I'm busy with trying to get a little stash of gift tags finished.  I like to add the handmade ones to my gifts plus give a little bundle to a couple of special people so they can use them on their presents.

I have not jumped on the gnome wagon before but when I saw these nifty little guys, I had to have them because they are super cute and there's so many ways to use this stamp and die set.  I'll have a couple of cards using the same set later on.  The stamp is Trinity Stamps Holiday Hang out plus I've used the coordinating Holiday Hang Out die set.

The images are coloured with Copic markers and I cut an extra blank to glue on the bank so you can't see where the markers bleed through plus it gives a place to write on.

Be sure to check out all the great stamps, dies and other product at Trinity Stamps. The Trinity Stamps Facebook Page has plenty ideas, inspiration and the Trinity Stamps Facebook Community Group to connect with other Trinity Stamps fans.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
