Spooky Goings On at Try it on Tuesday



Hello, yes, it's that time of the year when we get in the mood for Halloween at TioT.

I've made a card using a witch die cut, cut from some shiny black card along with a cauldron image I found on the internet, which I coloured with Promarkers.  I used Distress Inks for the background and added some stars cut from Brushed Pewter stained white and black card.  A torn piece of die cut and some  'spiders web' - that stuff's got a mind of it's own - and then my plastic spider - yuk - I don't like spiders.  As my Witch is cooking up something strange, a computer sentiment.

The rest of the DT have some wonderful inspiration for you, so please pop over to the blog to see their spooky creations.

Another scheduled post, so thanks for calling in.

Have a great day,
Avril xx

Time Waits for No Man at Fashionable Stamping







Hello,  this is a scheduled post as I couldn't miss telling you about the new challenge at Fashionable Stamping and for this fortnight Shirley chose the theme of  'Time Waits for No Man'

I've used two old Crafty Individual stamps for my card.  I stamped the Gent and cogs stamp directly onto an Oxide inked background, masked the image before stamping the clocks label as a background.  I also stamped the image onto white card, fussy cut the gent and then using Versamark and Clear EP, heat embossed.  The sentiment was printed on the computer and coloured with the Oxides.

The rest of the team have some great inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog, where you will also find all the challenge details.  We have InkArt as our sponsor who are offering one lucky random winner a stamp from their online store.

Have a lovely day whatever you're doing,
Avril xx

Autumn Glory


Hello,  a couple of weeks ago I was lucky and won the challenge at Stamping Sensations and they asked if I would like to join them as a Guest Designer for their October Autumn Glory challenge

I've used a Flonzcraft stamp, stamped in Black and heat embossed with clear EP.  I started with Fossilized Amber, Wilted Violet, Seedless Preserves and Rusty Hinge DIs to colour my layers.
The base layer was  stamped with a small leaf from Artistic Outpost using Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo.

The DT at Stamping Sensations have some wonderful inspiration for you, so why not pop over to the blog for all the details.

We're off  on holiday on Tuesday, so things will be a little quiet around here, but there are a couple of scheduled DT posts lined up.  I need to to start the packing now, but whatever you're doing, have a great day.

Party Time





Hello, it's time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and for this fortnight the theme is 'Time/Clocks'

I've used the Tim Holtz Alarm clock coloured with Brushed Pewter and Tarnished Brass stains and added a  clock face from the Thrift Shop Ephemera pack. The background was made using Oxide inks and with such a pretty dress on my little paper doll, it just had to be Party Time, which was printed on the computer.

The rest of the DT have some great inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog for all the details.

Thanks for visiting,
Avril xx
