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:
I started by creating the background with Distress Oxides, stamps and stencils and I then used the lid from a container and some acrylic paint to make the white rings. Next, I stamped and heat embossed a row of white trees before adding another piece of card with more trees and the birds on. I finished by adding a Tim Holtz die cut in the corner to break things up a little.
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
That's all from me for now, so I'll wish you a happy and peaceful day x
