Craft Stamper December Challenge

Hello my friends happy December! 
It's time for a new Craft Stamper Challenge yay!
I had to make a Christmas card for my project today since it is December after all.
I used this lovely wee mouse stamp from lovely Tracy Easson. 
How cute is he?? He is part of the Clan McTavish collection that I adore.
This one is called The Chieftain.
The sentiment and heart is from another one of her stamp sets
called Meet Me Under The Mistletoe


I used my watercolours to make him come alive. 
Then of course since I am Scottish I just had give him some tartan troosers.
I paper pieced them on along with the wee tartan heart in the corner. 
I just love him!
Tracy's designs are so unique and lovely to work with.


Now on to the lovely prize up for grabs this month.
These pretty Jane Davenport Watercolour Brights set.
I own these and they are a lovely set of paints.
So get your craft supplies out and make something and join in this months challenge.

Craft Stamper November Challenge

Hey Friends

Welcome to a new Craft Stamper challenge for November.
Can you believe we are almost at the end of the year already!! 
Where did time go??

It has been pretty cold and frosty up here in Scotland for the last few nights. 
 But I am hanging on to Autumn as long as I can.
I took a wee walk around the park and collected some lovely Autumn leaves. 
I wanted to incorporate them into my project today. 
I put the leaves in some paper and put them inside a heavy book overnight to press them down. 



I started off with a white card base and used this sentiment stamp from Unity and repeat stamped all down the side of my card using Potting Soil Archival Ink. Then I went around the edges with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink.




 Next I took my leaves and my paper punches and punched a heart shape out from the yellow leaf and then stuck it to my card with fabric glue. 




Then I punched some hearts from the red leaves and put one inside the yellow leaf and a couple in the corner of my card just to add more interest. 


 I tied a wee bit of twine around the card just to finish it off. 




I absolutely love the way it turned out. I love using things in nature to add to my creations. 
Leaves make the perfect embellishment too. 
You just have to be careful as they can be a little fragile.


Now it is your turn to come and join the fun. 

We have as always some fabulous prizes up for grabs.

We have this lovely butterfly stamp from PaperArtsy.

I hope you have some time to come and play along.

Hello October

Hello my friends! 

Welcome to another Craft Stamper Challenge.
 October it is one of my favourite months.
 I love the change is season of the cool crisp air and falling leaves. 
 I used two different stamp sets to create my  Kraft card.  
These stamps are from the lovely Leisa Zgharda. 
I created the sentiment with the Alphabet Stamp Set and the foliage around 
the edge is made with the Fall Bouquet Stamp Set. 
I then used my Prismacolor pencils to colour.  
This is one of my favourite quotes from the book Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery.  
I really loved working with these stamps as they are so versatile.




We have  amazing prizes up for grabs as usual this time we have this fab mould bundle.
As well as the chance to get your project published in the magazine. 


You can make anything you want as long as you use rubber stamps on your project. 
All of the information can be found on the Craft Stamper Challenge blog. 
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.

September Craft Stamper Challenge

Hello Friends! 

Welcome to another Craft Stamper Challenge. 

The weather is a wee bit cooler to I went with an Autumn themed card for the challenge this month.

I did go with cooler colours though and not your typical Autumnal colours just to give it a wee twist. 


I used a leaf stencil and my distress oxides to create the background. 
I went with Weathered Wood and Peacock Feathers for my colours and did a little ombre but you can't quite see the full effect with the sentiment in the middle. 
Then I just went over the leaves with a white gelly roll pen. 
The sentiment is from Leisa Zgharda called Autumn Leaves.

We have amazing prizes up for offer as always. I love the look of those glitter pens!!




I hope you have time to come and join in this challenge. 

All of the details are on the Craft Stamper Blog

Craft Stamper August Challenge

Hello Friends! 

Welcome to the brand new August Craft Stamper Challenge. 
I made this mixed media tag for my project today. 



I was sitting at my desk playing around with a bit of cardboard and it turned into this tag. I love it when you sit with no agenda at all and you make something out of nothing.  I started off by cutting  out a tag shape and then ripped some of the paper off so that you could see the corrugate underneath. Next I took some white paint and just painted some of it then used a dotty stencil on other parts. I then ripped a page out of an old book and stamped the Go Get It Girl stamp on to it and coloured her with my markers. Then I stamped the butterfly and the sentiment in kraft card and glued that down. I ripped up some coordinating paper to layer and bring the whole tag together.  I then added some lace ribbon to finish. I love the way it turned out!!

We have this lovely prize up for grabs this month take a wee look at these Seth Apter stamps. 



There is also the chance to get published in the magazine when the design team vote on all of your entries and choose another winner. I hope you have some time to come and join in this month. Remember you can use any stamps at all in your project.
 All of the details can be found on the Craft Stamper Blog.

Craft Stamper July Inspiration

Hello Friends

I am here with a wee reminder for this month's Craft Stamper Challenge.

Here is my project for this month.

 A card I made with the freebie stamp from this month's issue of the Craft Stamper Magazine.




This cute wee house reminds me of those beach huts on the beach that are painted all different colours. So I went with that theme. 

I used my Spectrum Noir Markers to colour those wee houses. 
Then added it to a light blue card base. 
To finish I just used a white gel pen to make a squiggle border to add more interest. 

I hope you have some time to come and join in this month's challenge. 

There are some fab prizes up for grabs as always.

Craft Stamper Inspiration June

Hello Friends!

Welcome to another Craft Stamper Challenge. Here is my project for today's post. 



I got out my distress inks and made a background in tones of blue, then I used this lovely Wild Flower 2 stamp from Bee Crafty as my main focal image. I used my black archival ink to stamp with. The sentiment is from a Unity kit called Resides in Hope. I heat embossed that with white embossing powder. I then went around the edge with a white ink pad and splattered some white paint just to add some more interest. 

I hope you have some time to come and join in this month's challenge. 
As always we have some fab prizes up for grabs.
