Craft Stamper~ February Take It, Make It Challenge

Woohooo! It's time for another challenge over at

This month, "anything goes" as long as you have used stamping somewhere on your project. Easy peasy right? Our generous February sponsor is

One lucky challenge participant will win these two Stamp sets  with matching stencils !!!!Love Love Love!!*swoon*

For  all the challenge details and for linking your entry please visit the Craft Stamper blog *here*


Here's my make using the Tim Holtz Hipster Stamp Set. I just love this set, so many fun and "different" images and sentiments to create with!

I started with a tag and applied Distress Paints (Mermaid Lagoon, Walnut Stain and Antique Linen) and blended them with my finger. Once dry, I stamped some background stamping with Archival ink. I then added some die cuts from the Memory Box Distressed Addington Collage set. 



I then stamped the image and sentiments onto script paper from Michaels in blue and brown Memento Inks to go with my background and mounted them on black cardstock. I trimmed them out and glued them to my tag base. I then used Black Soot Distress Paint around the edge of the tag.  

Some crinkle seam binding and twine from my stash finished off my tag. :o)



I sure hope I've inspired you to get crafty today and look forward to seeing your creations.

TAGplorations~January Challenge

Woohoo! It's time for another TAGplorations Challenge!

This month's theme is WINTER and the optional twist is: TEXTURE PASTE
Here's my tag 

I started with the largest Manila Tags Die cut from MDF board and applied some pieces of cardboard. I then applied a layer of Gesso. Once dry, I applied Prima Platinum Crackle Texture Paste in random areas and let it air dry so I could get the crackle effect. 
I then used Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays in browns and blues to add some color to my background. Then I added the Snowman I  created using different sized circles cut from scrap papers in my stash. I used Vintage Photo Distress Crayon on the edges for some highlights and dimension. I created his arms from the TH Bird Branch Die and tied the Sentiment (TH Christmas Word Bands) with twine. 

I finished with the Uppercase Alpha in the bottom as that's my wish...for Peace. 
And some Paper Smooches Stars Die cuts finished off my tag.

I sure hope you join us for this fun challenge and I…

STAMPlorations~ Sanna's Stencil Release Hop!

Woohoo! STAMPlorations is having a Hop showcasing the lovely Sanna Lippert's Stencil Designs!
Be sure to  check out all her amazing designs...trust me, you'll LOVE THEM!! 
I used Trees 1 and Flowers 2 and made an art journal page:



I used my Mini Art Journal ..which was a kiddies MDF book. I applied DecoArt NEON acrylic paints  with a brayer. Once dry, I applied a little white gesso with the brayer to soften the background. I then created a Circle mask from acetate and used the same bright acrylic paints thru the FLOWERS 2 stencil . This mask allowed for me to create the "flower bubbles" on my page. 
I then used black acrylic paint thru the TREES 1 Stencil as I felt my page needed some black. I then used my Jane Davenport pen around my "bubbles" and doodled to highlight them.  I finished with my sentiment from Create Bold Sentiments set and the CUTplorations Uppercase Die set
I sure hope I've inspired you today and be sure to continue hoppin' as there ar…
