Snot fun


 The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is: Animal Antics, showcasing Doodlebug designs.


For my card I stamped a rainbow of pill pots from the Doodlebug set called Pill Better, I've used Memento inks and a little mask to stagger them, directly on the cardbase.

The sentiment is from the same set and I've stamped it with Versafine Clair ink.


The critter is from Whimsy Stamps' set called Get well. I stamped it with Gina K Amalgam ink,cut itout and then colored with with alcohol markers. Mounted the image with foamtape and adhered in on top of the cardbase.

Robot Chat

 The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is: Steampunk.




For my card I used the Robot Chat from Katzelkraft, colored it with alcohol markers and cut it out with the Scan n Cut.

The Background is Distress inks through a diy stencil from a die ( Candied apple, Carved pumpkin, Squeezed lemonade, Twisted citron, Mowed lawn, Mermaid lagoon, Chipped sapphier, Wilted violet and Picked raspberry)

The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Birthday Balloons and I've stamped it with Versafine Clair ink.


Mounted the cat with foamtape and adhered him  on top. I went for  green as I thought it might be copper, like statues.


Nuvo Shimmer pen, Midas gold on the light bulbs, Zig gel pen for the shine.

Joyful frame


 The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is: frame it.

The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is: No stamps allowed!. Blimey and that in Stamptember lol...a challenge indeed as I like my critter stamps ;-).

So I thought long and hard and came up with this card with diecutting only. I've used the Simon Says Stamp  Joyful frame, obviously,  and a holly twig from Marianne Design. I've diecut the holly from green cardstock and the berries from glitter cardstock.

I diecut the Joyful frame from a cardpanel. At first I wanted to use the skinny frame and words,but while I was using this negativeto


place back the letters, I thought it looked far more CAS. So I carefully peeled off the skinny frame from the carbase on which I had applied Fired Brick Distress ink.

Mounted everything flush with taperunner, I ended up with two frames, the skinny red on and the one around the cardpanel. I think this looks so stylish. I've added the Holly twig just for those who need more detail, otherwise I would have left it off;-).
