Craft Stamper January Challenge

Hello Friends!

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and a wonderful New Year. We launched the new Craft Stamper challenge last week. This is your chance to pick up your favourite crafty supplies and stamps and get crafting with us. Maybe you got some new crafty bits for Christmas? This is the perfect time to use them. 

I made this card for this month's challenge. I am back home in Scotland and I came across a box of stamps I have not used. I must have set them aside and they got lost in my craft nook.  This is set is one of my finds this is from Visible Image called Own Kind of Beautiful. I love that butterfly stamp. I got out my distress inks and made a whole sheet of  ink smooshing. I used two different colours Worn Lipstick and Peacock Feathers. Then I stamped my butterflies on top and fussy cut them out. I then smooshed my white card base with some Peacock Feathers and stamped the sentiment at the bottom of the card. I added a wee bit of glittery sparkle to the butterflies then glued them to my card. 

Now it's your turn to come and join in the fun. 
You can be in with a chance to win this lovely bundle from Prima Marketing. 

You also have a chance of getting published in the Craft Stamper Magazine. 
So find some crafty time and come and join us.

Craft Stamper December Inspiration

Hello Friends 
Welcome to a wee reminder for this month's Craft Stamper Challenge.
I made this card for my project this month. 

How pretty is this girl???
I spotted her on Instagram and had to have that stamp.
I love her bigs eyes and those wee freckles.
She looks all cozy with her big scarf and hot drink.

This stamp is from Picket Fence Studios and it's called Jill Girl.
I coloured her up using my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens.  
They leave a very fine glitter behind which is very festive. 
I made the background with three different colours of distress inks, 
Faded Jeans, Salty Ocean & Weathered Wood. 
Then I splattered white craft paint for a snowy effect. 
The sentiment is from a stamp set I found at Michaels craft store called Christmas Blessings.
I really love how the card all came together. 

I can't believe this is the last Craft Stamper Challenge of the year. 
Thanks so much for joining us and taking part every month. 
We always see so many lovely projects.

Craft Stamper November Challenge

Hello Friends! 

Welcome to another Craft Stamper challenge. 

I hope you have time to come and play along with us this month. 

Here is my card I made for today's post. 

I am using this lovely set by Unity called  I am with you.

It has one of my favourite bible verses.

I used these Distress Oxides and a Tim Holtz stencil to create the background.

 Along with the florals stamp in the set.

I splashed some water to get those watermarks on there too.

 Then stamped the sentiment and put it on top of the background.

 I love the way it turned out.

We have some fab prizes up for grabs this month.

Kaisercraft are giving away this fab bundle.

You can find all of the details on how to enter the challenge at the Craft Stamper blog. 

Remember you can use any stamps at all on your project apart from digital ones.

Craft Stamper Inspiration October

Hello Friends! 

Welcome to another Craft Stamper Inspiration reminder. 

I hope you have had time to come and play along with us. 

I made this tag for my project today. 

The stamp I am using today is from Hampton Art called Quiet the Worries by Illustrated Faith.

I was drawn to this stamp for two things.

First I love the girl she can be coloured in so many ways.

Two I can be a bit of a worry wart.

This stamp is a reminder to me to literally quiet my mind and not worry about things.

I made the tag from some patterned paper and distressed it with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. 

Then stamped the girl on to kraft card and paper pieced her top with the same paper. 

I coloured her with my Zig markers and then used a white gel pen for highlights. 

Finally I added some twine to finish off.


There is a fab prize up for grabs this month.

This amazing die Sizzix Die by Eileen Hull !!! 

There is also the chance to be published in the Craft Stamper Magazine.

So hop on over to the Craft Stamper Blog for all of the details. 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog.
