Oriental ATC

Good evening, I hope you are having a good weekend - wow! the weather is fantastic here - summer at last (in the Autumn!!)

This week Simon Says Stamp and show are having an atc challenge.

I don't normally make atcs but thought I would have a go.

I stamped some clouds on the background, gold embossed them and coloured them in with with a white glaze gel pen. The kimono was stamped onto glossy photo paper and coloured in with gel pens.

thanks for visiting my blog

gorjuss girl with star tag

My new stamp!! from ebay - isn't she lovely?

I am entering this tag into two challenges:
Fashionable stamping - make a tag
totally gorjuss - nothing square about me

Simon Says Stamp and Show some Steampunk!!

Good evening!!

I saw that SSSS are having a steampunk challenge this week - well that is a challenge for me!
I hope this is steampunk enough!!!

I've had this stamp of the singing lady for some time and have hardly used it - every time I try the image ends up in the bin - but this time I think I've cracked it!! lol
I thought this lady might need a bit of help with her singing - must be very tiring so I added a clockwork key to her back. Behind her are some cogs that turn to give her energy...

I finished it off with a crackled flower that I've also had for some time - I knew it would come in useful one day!

Gorjuss girl - hang me out to dry

Hi, I hope you are having a nice weekend.

I recently bought a Gorjuss stamp and it really is gorgeous!!

I made this card for my sister's birthday and as I used Marianne flower dies (Flora 2) I will enter it into Marianne Design Diva's latest challenge which is to use Marianne flowers

The image is coloured in with my new Promarkers - colouring is a real pleasure with them!

laptop Card/gift box

Hi everyone, this is card made by my daughter and me.  Her boyfriend really loves computers and we thought this would be a fun card to make for him.  It also doubles as a gift box.
First we made a box and lid.  On the lid we put a keyboard and then attached the 'screen' to the lid side.
A really simple and easy make!!!
Papertake weekly has an anything goes challenge this week.

Thanks for looking

Travel Suitcase Birthday Card

Hi everyone,

I made this card for my eldest son's birthday - He loves to travel, so I thought this was quite appropriate!

I used a couple of Tim Holtz stamps on this card and black embossed the images. The tag is also stamped but I don't know who made that one.

I am entering this card into the Stampman Challenge which is all about travel

Thanks for looking
