Yay!! The 2nd Stampman Challenge is now OPEN!!

Take 2 Colours
Morning all. Here's my entry for the 2nd Stampman Challenge.I have used Heroarts Clear stamps 'Cupcakes'. A set ive had a while but never used before. Available from The Stampman. Ive also used my Nestabilities 'Blossom' and 'Fancy Tags'.
I think I was in a distress mood when I made this card as I also painted the edges with Distress Crackle Paint 'Tattered Rose'. It actually looks like icing sugar. The picture doesnt really do it justice Ive got to say, as it was a difficult one to photograph, as the cupcake kept spinning around!

As sprinkles on the cupcake I have used Cosmic Shimmer 'Jewels Iced Crystal'
Please pop over to The Stampman Challenge blog for more of the DT'S Fab Entries and last weeks winners.

Have a great weekend

The Stampman Challenge blog has OPENED!!

Yes The Stampman Challenge Blog has now opened. It is a fortnightly challenge and the first Challenge is 'Anything Goes'.
For my card I have used Tim Holtz Sizzix Die Bigz Heart Wings. I'm such a sucker for hearts so this die was a must have. I have also used Woodware Circular cards and made it into a Criss Cross Card with another mini Heart card inside.

Ive done lots of distressing and also painted the edges with crackle paint.

For the flowers I used a Woodware Flower Punch.
Also used heart Nestabilities for the heart card.

Please go check out the blog and all the rest of the teams cards. They are all beauties.

I'm also entering this into Tuesday Taggers Challenge-Anniversary

Thanks for looking and Byeeeeeeeeeeee for now

An experiment!

Hi Peeps!
This WOJ stamp was the other part of my prize along with the Nesty labels from Just Magnolia. So I thought I would experiment with the labels to see what they looked like as an Easel Card, as it seems such a long time since I made one.
I really got these labels to go with another stamp(which I cant show you yet)! But it is perfect for them.....so watch this space. I'm saving it for one of THE STAMPMAN CHALLENGES which starts on the 16th July so go take a look!

Circular Criss Cross Card.

Afternoon Folks. Hope you are enjoying your weekend. Its a little windy today up in the lovely Yorkshire, but still feels warm. I havent had much crafting time recently, but managed to make this last night, as everybody else was doing their thing!
I watercoloured Tilda with Black Soot Distress ink and then when dry covered her in Rock Candy for the crackled effect.
Papers were Black Market Paper Society-'Ebony and Alabastor Collection' from The Stampman.

I also used Nestabilities Label 2 and Circles.

and bits of ideology.
