Baby It's Cold Outside...

Good morning and happy Wednesday. I'm back with my second Christmas themed post for Rubber Dance, and as we've had wrapping paper, I thought I'd better make some gift tags to go with it.

Brrrr it makes me cold just looking at these!
I've used
 along with lots of fake snow, and real glitter!
I hope that this has put you in the mood for Christmas, 'cos it's not many more big sleeps now!

Have a very happy day, and thanks for looking.

Christmas Wrapping For Rubber Dance

Good afternoon and happy Monday. I'm just like busses, nothing for weeks, then two posts in two days. I've just returned from a lovely (and very long) holiday in the sun and we're straight back into Winter. I'm sure it wasn't this cold when we went away! It's just as well that the Rubber Dance colour/ theme challenge this month is Christmas. Here's some wrapping paper that I've made.

I've been wanting to make wrapping paper for ages, so I got a sheet of A3 kraft paper and set off stamping. It's all been coloured with water colour and sparkle pens, and I have to say that this looks better in real life as you can see all the lovely sparkle. Whoever gets their present wrapped in this better take it off carefully lol. That puts my son right out of it as he gets straight in with the ripping (yes he does get that from me!) 
I've used
The Rubber Dance store is closed at the moment as the lovely owner Bibi is having some problems with her hand. Once it's up and running again dont forget to quote SDFreeShip on any orders of 15 Euros and above.
I'm entering this into the Happy Little Stampers Christmas, the Stamping Sensations Getting  Ready For Christmas, and the Simon Says Stamp Monday Gift It challenges.
Have a happy day, and thanks very much for looking x

I See You Baby Take 2

Good morning and happy Sunday.
Country View Crafts have a fun challenge of Artist Trading Coins until the end of this month, and here are some more that I've made.

 I started by cutting my coins with a die then stamping and embossing my funky fish. I've coloured the background with these distress inks and added some bubbles with Mod Podge.

 I LOVE these  Zinski stamps, they just make me laugh!

Anyway back to the coins, when the Mod Podge had dried I coloured the fish with Posca pens.

Just look at this guy, his face is soooo funny.

Now I know the challenge was for coins, but I'm right in the middle of  birthday card season, so I took the opportunity and turned this one into a card (it was given the day after I finished it lol)
I did enjoy making these, and I hope you like them too. Have a fun week, and thanks very much for looking x

A Little Crazy

Good morning and happy Thursday. Can you believe it's November already! It's also time for our 'Summer' holidays. Since we retired we've had our holidays in November and spent the Summer at home and boy was I glad that we did that this year. So the 'kids' are in charge of the house, which means a mass tidy up the day before we're due home, and a mega full washing basket!

We have a new challenge at Country View Crafts and I'm sure it will be a very popular one as it's the latest craze Artist Trading Coins. 

 My mini crazy cats and dogs have been stamped and cut out (thank goodness for these Framelits dies) and then coloured with Tim's Distress Markers.

Now I do love coins for coins sake, but sometimes you just need a card! I stamped my white card with the mini crazy accessories, and coloured with the Distress Markers. Just look at all that white space, it's quite frightening!

Then I just added the coins, and the sentiment from my 'go to' Tim set. And there we are, a card made with hours to spare lol.
I hope that you join in with our fun challenge,  I'll be off the grid for a few weeks, so I'll catch up when I get back.

Have a happy November, and thanks very much for looking x
