New Challenge at Inkspirational!

HI friends!
We have a new fun challenge for you at Inkspirational:

Basically just anything goes with your stash, a super easy one, yay!

I decided to make a Christmas card and used a NBUS Penny Black poinsettia stamp. The background is stamped with a Marianne Design stamp, distress inks and water for creating an ombre effect. I used Wink of Stella pen to the flower to add some sparkle and it also moved the distress inks around a bit. The frame die is by Penny Black and the simple greeting is by Altenew. 

Please join us at Inkspirational! Lindsey continues as our February guest designer and she and our DT have made fabulous samples for you! Happy crafting!

New Challenge at Less Is More!

Hi friends!
It's time for the new challenge at Less Is More. For the next fortnight we have the ONE LAYER challenge for you -so only one piece of cardstock folded in half, no additional layers please! :) The theme of the OLC is Focus on Sentiment. 

We are continuing our 8th birthday celebrations which means some of our ex-designers are joining us... And we also have a fabulous prize for grabs for our participants. Our sponsor is CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and the DT has had the great pleasure to play with their products. CAS-ual Fridays is also offering a 15% discount on their site while this challenge lasts -use the code FEBLESSISMORE! 

I'm using two stamp sets by our sponsor: Casual Comfort and Pretty Posies. I stamped and masked the images from the Pretty Posies set with pale Memento inks on the background and stamped several words from Casual Comfort on top with black so they would really stand out. I finished the card with some clear sequins. Hope you like! Do visit our challenge blog for more inspiration and all the challenge details!

New Challenge at Inkspirational!

Hi friends!
It's time for a new challenge at Inkspirational! This time it's a word prompt "Text". The design team along with our talented February guest designer Lindsey have created fabulous samples for you -don't miss any of the inspiration and challenge details, click HERE!

I decided to use text as a background (stamp by Prima if I remember right) and let it peak through a window cut with a MFT die. The flower, colored in with Copics + white gel pen details comes from one of my favorite sets by Altenew. The sentiment is from the same set. Hope you like and thanks for popping by! 

I'd like to join:

Time Out Challenges Reminder!

Hi friends!

I'm here to remind you of our current challenge at Time Out Challenges where we are inspired by this amazing photo:

We are happy to be sponsored by STAMPlorations again! Do join us for a change to win a cool prize and to be selected as a future guest designer! This time our guest designer is Conil, one of our regular players. So good to have Conil joining us this time!

I was inspired by the red-white color scheme, love theme and the red frame. I cut the frame with a W+9 die. The flower stamp comes from STAMPlorations and is called Pocket Blooms. I colored the image with Copics and added detail with gel pens. The sentiment is a very old by SSS.

I hope to see you joining us!
