Weather Forecast At FSC

Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight have a theme of  “Weather Forecast” which was picked by my fabby teemie sister Claire.

I smiled when I saw this challenge and also thought OMG what am I going to do.  Then I remembered my raindrop stamps, first saw these type of stamps on Dots blog here.  (Ashamed to say my set was bought can you believe nearly six months ago but never seen the light of day until now.)

The background doily is from Do-crafts which the girl was stamped directly onto.

Totally in love with the raindrops (now they are out of their packaging) which were coloured in before adding the Glossy Accents.

The larger raindrops were made by using a mask from Creative Expressions called … wait for it … Raindrops and a dimensional paste.  When dry Glossy Accents was dripped over the top.  Other stamps are from PaperArtsy here and here plus the DI Ripe Persimmon was caressed over the top.

I would love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning.  Also don’t forget that the winner of this challenge has $20 to choose anything they like from Flonz’s store.

Storage Shoe For Tags

Are you ready for this … another Skype session with Irene and today we made this fabulous storage shoe for tags.  This is already sitting on my desk with all those yummy tags just waiting to be used.  We loved making this so much that we each said we are making another but this time it will be for our finished tags.

I used grey board and Tim Holtz papers with some core card for the inside.  Only a teensy bit of stamping (couldn’t resist) you know me and stamping.

Very simple to make as there isn’t much going on really.  What else would you expect from a storage box.
Wait until we make the one for finished tags that will be a different matter.

Just Go Wherever It Takes You

Vintage Stamping Challenges has a colour challenge theme this month of Orange, Purple, Black, Red and Green.  You can pick any one of these colours or all of them if you wish.  This is my DT piece for the challenge and I chose to use Orange, Black, Red and Purple as my main colours.

This definitely didn’t start out as a Christmas card but as you can see that is what it ended up being.

Way to early for me to be thinking about the little red fat man but as I was starting the background for some reason snow and Christmas popped into my head.  Well that was it everything just snowballed from there. lol!!

Here is a close up pic of the boy on his sledge …cute or what.  You can find him here and the lady is here.

To enter this months challenge just click Mr Linky at the bottom of the VSC web page and maybe it could be you who wins the $20 from Flonz’s store. Please visit the DT’s blogs for more inspiration and also it would be nice to leave them some love.

One Layer Or Maybe Not

The girls made a one layer card in my class yesterday but then the butterfly was added later … which technically made it a two layer piece.  They are learning more about blending and inking and I am pleased to say all are enjoying so far.

Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight have a theme of  “Anything Goes” and below is the card we made yesterday which I have added as my DT make.

The background started with brushing/stroking and tickling different colours of distress inks to give everything depth, then came the stamping and finally embossed with white powder.  Once everything was embossed we coloured in with more distress inks.
