SDC80: Out with the old, in with the new

Out with the old, In with the new.


Use something Old and Something New
On your project with a New Year's Theme

 My Team mate Clarie is asking us to use something old with something new.
I came across some old sequence laying around in my stash of goodies and glassine bags. And immediately thought of New Year's Eve. We celebrate by visualizing a dream we have and at the strike of midnight we throw the confetti into the air .
The OLD is my Sequence and my NEW are some New stamps from Stampotique.

Stamps I used from left to right.

Hope you will play along with us at the Stampotique Designers Blog.
You could win some of the Off Color Stamps-!!

Face the brilliance of your most wonderful creations and dwell on your dreams.

Keep Calm & Carry On It's Christmas!

Stressed me??? Never! Oh I'm such a fibber! I kind of resemble Tangled Enthusiasm today as I'm seriously behind schedule! However, I thought I'd grab a quick five minutes to drop by and wish all of you lovely Stampotique followers a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Enjoy the holiday.

This is another card that I made using a stripe of paint as the base of the card.

I've used Maria's ~{Zara Gift}~ which is just perfect for a little girl's card. I've used DI's as watercolours for this one  and added Glossy Accents to the balloons and bubbles.

I've finished off with ~{Happy Birthday}~.

Little Angel

Here is a little angel ornament I recently created for the current challenge over on the Stampotique Designer's Challenge.

I stamped Girl with heart purse onto a wooden angel shape using StazOn and hand drew the wings using a fine liner pen. After colouring with Copic markers I covered the ornament in a light dusting of twinkly embossing powder. She looks very comfy and 'at home' sitting on our tree with the other decorations.

Wishing you all a happy Christmas and enjoyable Holiday

SDC79: Ornament

So are we Ready YET....

The Holiday is approaching ever so quickly. Right?
My Stampotique Team Mate Maria is asking us to make a last minute ornament for the tree.
I love making ornaments. 
Maybe it is because they are 3 dimensional.
I hope that you will visit the other creations from my team mates at 
They are really talented folks and they always get my creative juices to flow.
ENJOY your creativity-!

Angels on the trees

After using both of Daniels Tree Toppers ~{Large}~ and ~{Small}~ on different projects, I thought it was time they sat on trees.

I made some mini trees and added a touch of colour to the angels, some glitter glue to the wings and Glossy Accents to the hearts. They had pins attached to the back and were then pinned into place.

Oh baubles, it's that time of year again

 Perfect for last minute Christmas tree decorations are these clear plastic baubles made pretty using the smallest character from the Line Up stamp and some mica flakes. You could make a whole set using all the characters and different sized baubles!
This is the other side so when it's on the tree spinning it will be both contrasting yet complimentary images.
It wouldn't be complete without the flourish of silver ribbon.
They are great fun to make and very quick, I made mine in just under an hour.
Wishing you a wonderful day, Sam xxx
