New DT Post and it's STEAMPUNKtember -F

Wow have some great news - I applied to be on Design Team for Anything but a Card Challenge blog and I was chosen.  Such great news and I am thrilled.  The new DT will be announced today and we will all be showing a STEAMPUNKtember project of our owm and here is mine.

I felt like getting really messy so lots of modelling paste, paint and inka gold used, my hands look terrible now lol.  I used an old box, bits of chain from evergrowing bits and bobs stash, modelling paste and wood effect stamp (not recognizable with embellishment on) for texture, lots of wooden cogs, made to look aged using modelling paste, paint etc just like the box.  Thats it really....... hope you like the final piece. 

 Sorry for overload of pics

Why not head on over to Anything but a Card and join in with the fun.  We would love to see you there.

Hugz and love

Just a card.........F

Good evening everyone

I recieved a puzzle stamp from France made by Magenta and I just love love love it!  The words mean 

''Fill my life with music and love me without end''

How lovely is that! (Got no one to send it to lol)

I stamped and clear embossed, coloured all using copics and DI, mounted onto black cardstock, added some ribbons from my bits and bob box and voila all done! 

Sorry for all the pics but couldn't make up my mind as usual.

Thanks for dropping by and hope to see ya all again real soon.

A fun card - F

and not usually my type of thing but I came across these fab and funky stamps (Dolly Mama's by Stamps Happen) and actually like them.  I find it difficult to find them though so if anyone in the UK knows where from let me in on the secret lol.  What I like about them is no shading and shadowing necessary yayyy!

I used some cordinations card embossed, sanded and wiped over with red DI and an odd scrap of paper for the backing of the card.  A couple scraps of ribbon from my never ending scrap box lol.  I stamped the image, coloured it using copics and fussy cut it out.  I then stuck it onto some card I had sprayed with dylusion sprays - then mounted it on yellow card.  I stamped the bag image again and fussy cut that out and made the bag look 3d.

I will be using this for an upcoming birthday

Thats it really - it was fun and whats more really easy lol.

Love and hugz to all

Just a quickie tonight - a fast fix for my passion before beddy byes lol

I covered a playing card with a scrap of vintagy paper with the word memories on it and wiped TH ink over the top.  I stamped the image of the fab sweethearts onto cream card and wiped the same ink over it.  I used my dymo for the letters and a tiny doily also wiped with the ink.  I sealed it using mod podge antique.

There ya go so quick if you had blinked you would have missed it all LOL.

Now for the pics

Thank you for visiting
