Christmas Greetings

 
Greetings! The weeks roll by quickly, and once again it is time for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge.  Our theme is "Celebrating." It can be a project around celebrating Christmas, New Years, Birthdays, or whatever else strikes your fancy.
 
I hope that you will stop over and check out all the beautiful and inspiring projects by the rest of the Design Team and then consider making a project of your own to share with us.  Remember, we are a stamping challenge, so the focal point of your project must be stamped.  Also, one lucky participant will be selected to win a stamp image provided by our gracious sponsor Ink Art Designs
 
For my own project, I began by sprinkling Bister crystals in blue and brown onto a water color panel.  The pup carrying an evergreen branch is a new to me stamp from The Frantic Stamper. The sentiment is a stamp image by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous and the little boy is a paper doll by Tim Holtz for Idealogy. The corners are hand drawn and a bit of Stickles for sparkle complete my card.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by! I truly value your visits and comments.  Best, Yvonne

The Lost Generation

 
Greetings! The weeks are whizzing past and already it is time for another challenge over at Inkspirational. The theme this time around is a photo inspiration depicted below!
 
 
 
For my inspiration piece, I created a card using a set of stamp images by Artistic Outpost using the colors reflected in the inspiration photo. You will want to pop over to Inkspiration to check out the inspiration pieces of the rest of the Design Team and then consider creating one of  your own to share with us.

We Wish You A Merry Christmas!


Greetings! It is time again for a new theme over at Eclectic Ellapu.  For the month of December, our theme is Christmas. It can be a gift or anything festive.

I am in card making mode, so a festive Christmas card seemed the path for me.  The stamp image is by Artistic Outpost and is one of my all time favorites. I added Stickles around the edges of the image, matted the image with some green glitter paper and added the prepared panel to the front of a card base. A bit of bling in the upper corner finishes off my card. I hope that you will stop over to see what the rest of the design team has dreamed up to inspire you and then create a piece of your own to share with all of us. 

Thanks for dropping by.  I truly appreciate your support. Best, Yvonne

All is Calm, All is Bright


Greetings! The weeks roll by and it is already time for another challenge over at Inkspiration! This time, we are challenged to create a Christmas Card using only Neutral Colors!


I hope you will stop over to see what the rest of the design team have dreamed up to inspire you and then create a project of your own to share with us! For my own project, I began with a kraft paper panel, tore paper and added it to the panel. I stamped images onto the panel with Archival Ink. I buttered the white paper with texture paste and added some Stickles for sparkle. Thanks for stopping by! Hugs, Yvonne

Peace On Earth

 
Greetings! It is time, once again, for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge. Our challenge theme:  Nature.
I hope you will stop on over to FSC to see what the rest of the Design Team have dreamed up to inspire you and then create a project of your own to share with FSC. Remember one lucky participant will be selected to win a free stamp courtesy of our gracious sponsor Ink Art Designs. As always, we are a stamp challenge, so please remember your project must use stamping as a focal point.
 
For my own piece, I watercolored the top of a panel with water colors and used acrylic paint on the bottom. The stamp images are by Tim Holtz for Stampendous. Thanks so much for stopping by. Best, Yvonne

May your Christmas be Bright

sta
Greetings! It is time, once again, for a new challenge over at Inkspirational! This time, we have a word prompt: Trend
 
 
There are all sorts of ways to define "trend" of course, and if you pop on over to Inkspirational, you will see each designer's unique approach. For my own card, I decided to go with a Christmas Card, as we are starting to see a wave of them with the Holidays upon us.
 
It is unusual for me not to have stamping on my cards, but I recently received a packet of free goodies with an order from Funkie Junkie Boutique and I thought it would be fun to craft a card using the items.  As well, I understand large die cuts are popular just now.
 
I worked with Magicals by Lindy's Stamp Gang and then layered my pieces on top of the panel before matting and attaching to a card base. 
 
We hope you are inspired to create a trendy project of your own to share with us! Thanks for stopping by! Yvonne

Imagine

 
Greetings! It is time for a new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu, and this time the theme is "Anything Goes!" It's an opportunity to pull out one of your uninked stamps and get inky!
 
For my own project, I colorized a water color background panel a variety of Distress Oxides and a new to me stencil by Donna Downey. The images on the background and the focal images are from a set by Katzelkraft Stamps.The focal images were stamped multiple times with different inks and pieced together to add a bit of color. 
 
I hope that you will pop on over to see what the rest of the Design Team have dreamed up for you and then create a piece of your own to share with us.  Thanks for stopping by. Yvonne
