February already, and as it's a Saturday, it's Challenge Time at Sweet Stampin'. This week with Valentines Day being round the corner, the Theme is "All you need is Love". Pop over and have a go. This week we are playing just for fun, but it's a nice challenge so go have a go why not.
No card from me today on this latest challenge. I have been making several of these mdf hearts and thought it perfect for the "Love" challenge this week. Hope you like it.
I painted the heart with gesso primer then Dovecraft Almond paint.
The lovely butterfly stamp is from a fairly new company called "Visible Image", here is a link to the web site, they are a super company and the stamps they produce are very different and sweet. http://visibleimage.co.uk/.
I have added a sentiment stamp from Inkilicious, a few splatters from an old SU set of stamps and some Hobbyhouse pearls, the tiny flowers are from my stash...These hearts from the MDF MAN come in several sizes, this one is about 6" wide and is a medium size.

Hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year and you are all back to "Craft Land" with a smile......I am, and have great plans for 2016, so watch this space!
So....A Saturday in January means....Challenge time at Sweet Stampin'. "Vintage or Shabby" is the theme, so go on have a go and try to win some goodies from our sponsors "Live and Love".
I have made a 60th Birthday card for a friend of my Daughter's, so decided to use this as a Vintage Theme, hope you think it's nice! Although it's a touch too "pink" for my liking!!
The papers are from a pad I bought recently in The Works, the bunting is one of my all time favorite Memory Box dies (it's a wonder this die cuts the amount I use it!) The lovely vintage sign sentiment is a stamp by Anna Griffin.

Well as this card goes live (scheduled)...I will be flying through the air on the way to Benidorm with Mum and Sister. We last went in May, so we are soooo looking forward to going back.
We are meeting our friends at La Nucia (about 6 miles from the center of Benidorm) and other friends are already their and waiting for us.
So.... This is my card for the Challenge this week of "Use Dies and Punches" at Sweet Stampin', and our sponsors this week are "Live and Love Crafts".
Please don't forget we are a stamping challenge so some stamping somewhere (look at my card this week, it has a topper and dies and the only stamping is the sentiment, but that's acceptable!)
I have used both dies and punches on this card. I usually use these anyway, so this challenge is perfect for me.
The image is a LOTV topper and the papers are Dovecraft. The little bunting which i use all the time is a Memory Box die. The punched border is a MS punch. I have added some Stardust Stickles and a couple of Hobby House pearls. The sentiment is a Hero Art stamp.

Saturday in October means Challenge Time @ Sweet Stampin'....It's an easy one this week too, as it's "Antiques Roadshow" Which basically means "Use an old stamp".
Please remember we are a stamping challenge so you must stamp somewhere, ta.
I have chosen one of my little Easels for this week, oh I love making these.
I start by stamping a script stamp on the actual easel frame, then I work on the little topper for the frame.
I used some Pion Papers cut up and a few cut aparts from Graphic 45 papers. I have also used a large enamel heart button. The "Antiques roadshow old stamp" bit is one of my all time favorite Sentiment Stamps which I have had since I first began crafting (what feels like a hundred years ago!)
This "Live in the Moment" Stamp (by Hero Arts) has been used by me on so many projects It is always a "go to" for little projects like this..
