The Stampman Blog Hop

I have been looking over many of the makes from last year. It was hard to choose my favourite but I think it will have to be this one.

It is an item I made for last years One Heart One World mega blog hop to give away. I really enjoyed making it and it houses some of my favourite stamps on the frame and the wonderful Book of Life in the middle which is triple embossed to create a tile effect.

I really enjoyed last years blog hop with The Stampman so I am looking forward to being part of this years. So here is my contribution.

Merry Christmas Tag

This is the last week of tags with SCD this year. We will be having a short break over Christmas to be back with vigor in the New Year. Another year sped by. So I think this tag is self explanatory and just to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and thank all of you for playing with us at SCD. It has been great to share all the artwork that has been created. I will just let you know that I will not be leaving comments for this challenge until after Christmas but I promise to catch up then.

Have a good one!

Die Cuts and 3 Colours

I am entering this make into 2 challenges. The first is a Christmas theme with The Stampman where you are to use 3 colours. Mine are red, green and gold.

Secondly I am entering it for the Stampotique challenge which is to use die cuts and punches.My die cut is the tree, the star and the reindeer. The punch I used is a hole punch which I used on metallic red card to create the baubles on the tree.

I rather liked the double meaning of the word Noel. Noel for Christmas and obviously it must be the elf's name as well.

The Magi


You know when you make something and although it is very simple it just brings you joy. Well this little tag is it. I don't know why it satisfies me so much but it does. I have given the Magi, the three kings, a printed acetate overlay that had to include the words "Time for Love". If you did not already recognize these little figures, it is a Stampotique stamp called 2 sticks. Ok I had to stamp one a second time to get 3 and then added crowns to make them into kings. The background, a paper scrap, left over from some Cosmic Shimmer, Glimmer mist paper I had created previously reminded me of the sands they may well have crossed while following the Star that led the way.

Looking forward to visiting your Christmas Characters this week at *SCD*  and see who you create. As ever the design team have some fab examples to start you off. Follow that star and take a look.

White Glitter with Gingersnaps

Gingersnaps this week the challenge is to use White Glitter. I decide to use my white glitter as snow and stamped this snowy scene to add it to. I love the way it actually looks as if the snow is falling from the sky.
As you may have discovered it is quite tricky to photograph white glitter to show its qualities. Photographing at a slight angle may help to catch dimension or sparkle? Try it. See how you get on. Any tips please share. I have also included a close up which may show it better.

Bling Bling Christmas Morning!

This is my contribution to the Stampotique challenge to use a bit of bling. I decided to depict Christmas morning with Moon Girl dressed in gold with her gold crown on her head. Moon Girl has a crystal gem on her heart front. Neither her crown or her gem have shown up too well in the photo. The moon is gold leaf. The present have been coloured with sparkly Sakura pens and a touch of puffy snow added to the scene.

Book Plate from the Relish Reading plate.

Here is another idea for using this stamp sheet, "Relish Reading". As you can see by all the makes on the Rogue Rehead Design blog it really does lend itself to so many makes. I thought this may be a nice addition when giving a book to someone to make it even more personal. Perfect for Christmas or Birthdays or just those giving days.

Tags and Trees with SCD

A new month and a new challenge at SCD this week. Artyjen, Sioux, has chosen Trees which may be interpreted seasonally or not, as you choose. I decided to do seasonal and have added presents and the snow flake border. All the team have created some wonderful tags. Sioux has created the most wonderful tag which reminds me of Narnia. It is so lush. It just transports me into the book.

I am sure you will create some wonderful tags. Can't wait to take a peep.
