Hello there my Crafty Friends,
I do hope that you all had a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Here we are again at the start of another year of crafting adventures and I wonder what this year will have in store for us all, lots of exciting things I hope. I'm determined to make an effort this year to ink up some stamps that have sat unloved and underused in my drawers for far too long. I keep saying that I won't buy any more stamps until I've used all that I've already got but sadly, that's a resolution that I never seem to manage to keep. I'm sure that you all understand where I'm coming from here :) Let's have a show of hands!
Today is the first challenge of the year at Stamping Sensations and our theme this time is 'Cold and Frosty Colours.' We would like to see you using lots of blues, purple and whites but the subject is of your own choosing, so lots of scope there. Here's the card that I've made for this new challenge:
All of the stamps and stencils that I've used today are by Crafty Individuals and the stamps are: CI-209. C-481, CI-478, CI-017
We are generously sponsored this month by 'Sizzix' and we really hope that you'll be able to join us.
I do hope that you'll be able to join us in this month's challenge but please remember that Stamping Sensations is a stamping challenge, so we must see a stamped image as the focal element of your artwork, not just a stamped sentiment or stamping in the background, this means:
Stamping must be the central point of attention and interest.
All the details of our challenge rules can be found here
Please note: If we don't comment on your entry it will be because it doesn't follow our theme to qualify under our rules, or because we are asked to sign in or provide additional data to comment on third part hosts such as Instagram, Flickr or Facebook etc. We really don't want to be rude but we do want to be fair to those who follow the rules.
That's all from me for now, so I'll wish you a happy and peaceful day x
