Mid month reminder at Penny Black and More Challenges.....Christmas!





Hi there!

I'm here today with your mid month reminder for our theme at Penny Black and More Challenges which this month is Christmas!

On this sample I've used the lovely Penny Black stamp 40-660 Lantern and the sentiment is from Penny Blacks stamp set 30-387 Festive snippets. (Tree branches are from my own stash, moon has been done with a circular mask just cut from some masking paper).

I think this is a lovely stamp, it isn't just for Christmas either but could be used on a spooky design for Halloween or added to any creation really if it suits it! To me it said Christmas hanging on the branches. It's quite different don't you think and I do lean towards things that are different - never been called "normal"!

The sentiment went perfectly with the lantern I thought.

Coloured with a distress oxide background and the lantern has been coloured with Zig clean color markers and the glass has been finished with glossy accents but unfortunately that doesn't show on the photograph.

A simple design but effective and it makes that lantern pop which is what I was trying to achieve.

Please do come and join us at Penny Black and More Challenges:-


and do remember that we are a hand stamping challenge so your entry must have a hand stamped image as it's main focal feature.

Out of my comfort zone with white on white..................



Hi there everyone!

Well, this week I've had a play outside of my comfort zone with a white on white Christmas card.

Now for those of you that know me well, I'm a huuuuge lover of plenty of paint and colour and very little white space (which I'm working on) but white on white, well, this is another ball game!!!

Actually, when I got my head around what I felt I wanted to do for this card, I really quite enjoyed it!!!!  Yes it took quite some time to cut the aperture, do the embossing of the back mats and all the stamping, embossing and die cutting of the flowers, ivy and holly.

The sentiment is embossed in silver and is one of my favorites by Stamps by Chloe, the poinsettias, holly sprays and ivy sprays are all John Next Door and are stamped on to both white card and white vellum.

I will enter this in to the current Allsorts Challenges of white on white:-


Hope you like this, see, I can do it if I try!!!!!!

Mid month reminder for Penny Black and More Challenges for "Pretty in Pink"




Hi there!

Golly, we're half way through October already - soon be Christmas ahhhhhhh!!!!

It's time for me to give you the mid month reminder for our challenge this month which is "Pretty in Pink" for breast cancer awareness month.

For this card I've used the lovely Lustrous stamp by Penny Black 40-545.

The background is one that I've made myself using spray inks and cling film with some top spraying. The sentiment and little swirls were just added from my stash.

I have used a lovely deep pink to colour the stamp - it has come out darker on the photograph than it actually is - no matter how hard I tried, it seemed to come out the same colour - but I like it so I went with it!

Do come over and join us with this month's challenge :-

There are prizes to be won!

Please remember that we are a hand stamping challenge, no digi stamps allowed - the main focal image of your artwork must be a hand stamped image.
