Waltzingmouse Stamps PJ Party Story Book Challenge


Another fun Challenge from Waltzingmouse Stamps, this is the Story Book card design from the recent PJ Party, you still have time to enter, just produce a card using the design as inspiration and link up at Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog.

I have used the Ocean Bound Stamp set for the three circles, the Tying the Knot Set for the rope and the Zig Zag Background, in a red, white and blue combo. It is difficult to choose which of the lovely Waltzingmouse Stamps to use, they are brilliant, especially being clear stamps and such good quality, with so many choices in a set, and so many sets to choose from. I have so many on my wish list !!

Thank you for visiting. Something alpaca related soon !!

Christmas Card Challenge for Waltzingmouse Stamps Fanatics !!

Hi, this is another crafting challenge blog, the Waltzingmouse Stamps Fanatics Christmas Challenge.
Create a Christmas Card but without using Christmas Stamps, other than for the sentiment.

Here is my take on this card. I have used the Funky Feathers Stamp Set and stamped very simply a forest of stylized trees using shades of green and then highlighted with pops of red, for the stars at the top of the trees.
I didn't realise how much I had been influenced by the photograph above, until I have just put both photos together on my blog. My first ideas were for snowflakes using the feathers but they did not work how I imagined and this design came together from there.

Thank you for visiting.

Merry & Bright

Hi, this weekend I am posting a Christmas Card made for the Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge No 5 using "Storm Colours" greys and blues.

My design used the Nordic Winter Stamps and for the background the mini crackle design, stamped in the grey shades and the blues. The sentiment is from "Around Christmastime". All stamps are from Waltzingmouse Stamps

I used a favourite Saturday Sketchbook idea as the basis for my design.

And made use of my Spellbinders dies for the reindeer decorated bauble and circular doily.

Thank you for visiting
Hope that you have a craft filled weekend
