Craft Stamper May Challenge

Hello Friends!

I hope everyone is doing ok during this crazy time. 

I just wanted to remind you that we are still running the Craft Stamper Challenges. 

The May challenge is well underway but you still have time to come and join in. 

Here is my card I made for this month's project. 


I made this clean and simple floral card with Unity stamps. 
I used two different kits to create this card. The jar with the flowers is from the Strength & Wisdom stamp set and the sentiment is from the kit called His Words.
 I kept my card really clean and just used my watercolors to colour the flowers and jar then tied a little twine around it to finish it off.

If you have the time come and play along with us this month. 
You can use any stamps you wish on your project. 

Here is the prize we have on offer this month this fab Eileen Hull die. 


All of the details of the challenge can be found on the Craft Stamper Blog.

Hope to see your project there! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Happy Valentine's Day - Craft Stamper Inspiration

Hello my friends happy Valentine's Day! 

I made this stamped jar for my inspiration project for the Craft Stamper Challenge today. 



This is my husband's old coffee jar that was heading to the recycling bin.

I always like to save them and make something with them. 

I gave it a couple of coats of white chalk paint and let it air dry.

Next I stamped it with memento ink. 

The stamp I used is from Unity called Smooches and Stuff by Phyllis Harris.
 I just love all of her art work.

I let that completely dry then used my alcohol markers to colour it. 

While I was at the craft store I found this nice heart kraft ribbon in the Valentine section.

 I tied it around the top to finish. 

I love the way it turned out.



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

As always we have wonderful prizes up for grabs.

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.

All of the challenge details can be found on the Craft Stamper Blog.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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.
