I Made a Box for Scrap 'n Stamp!

Welcome back! I've been taking a bit of a crafting and blogging break to look after some other "stuff" - you know how real life can interfere sometimes. :D I'm back and on the Scrap 'n Stamp blog today with something completely different - a chipboard box made from a Graphic 45 kit! This turned out to be a lot of fun to make. More photos and an overview of how I made it are all over on the blog, I hope you'll check it out!

Tea for Two at Scrap 'n Stamp!

Since this is my first post in a while, HAPPY NEW YEAR! Welcome back for the January Scrap 'n Stamp inspiration hop, Tea for Two. The design team is ready to inspire you with tea-related, love-related, two-related creations! ;) And if you hop and comment along the way, you are eligible for a $50 gift credit to the Scrap 'n Stamp store! Here's my card:

To make this, I used two different Lawn Fawn sets: Thanks a Latte, which I find is really fun and versatile, plus the very first Lawn Fawn set I ever owned, My Cup of Tea. It was released in 2011, so not surprisingly, it's no longer available. :D  For the main panel, I used the tea bag, heart and tea leaf images from My Cup of Tea to make my own background. I stamped and die cut the tea mug from purple cardstock, then added the heart and lots of glitter with a Lawn Fawn glitter pen. To go with the glitter, I added some steam to the mug with Versamark and sparkle embossing powder

Head over to the Scrap 'n Stamp blog to start your hop! Here's the list of participants:

Inkspirational: Ice

Merry Christmas! It's also a Saturday, and that means it is time for a new Inkspirational challenge! We have a word prompt for you: ICE. I purposely made my card so it could be a Christmas card, or not: 

I have two different stamp sets that include ice floes, and since I've used my polar bear set a lot already this year, I switched to this cute penguin set. I stamped the penguin, masked him, and added the ice beneath him. While the mask was still in place, I sponged in a little Antarctic sky. He's a penguin, so there wasn't a lot of colouring that needed to be done. ;) The sentiment leaves this card available for a number of occasions! 

I hope you'll have time in the next two weeks to join us! 

Supplies: Neenah white cardstock, Mama Elephant Arctic Penguins & MFT Chill Wishes stamps, Versafine onyx black, MFT extreme black & faded jeans & wilted violet distress ink, Wow clear gloss embossing powder, Copic markers, MFT wonky stitched rectangle die

A Whittle Winter Card at Scrap 'n Stamp

It's my turn to be on the Scrap 'n Stamp blog today with a card for today's Random Acts of Cardness challenge word: WINTER! I got to try some new-to-me supplies to make this little scene:

Not surprisingly for this time of year, my card fits a number of challenges. I'm adding it to the Cold As Ice Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge, Cupcake Inspirations challenge Snow People and the Shopping Our Stash Do You Want to Build a Snowman? challenge. And while not related quite as seasonally, I'm entering Darnell's December NBUS challenge - the falling snow cover plate die, whittle snowman die and green distress mica spray are being used for the first time for this card. 

If you're interested in the details of how I put this card together, pop over to the Scrap 'n Stamp blog! Happy weekend!

A Tiny Craft: Happy Holidays ATCs

It's the middle of December (insert panicked face here) and time for a new A Tiny Craft Challenge! Our theme this month is HAPPY HOLIDAYS, and we'd like to see trading cards or coins that reflect what you celebrate this time of year. 
Funny, I don't exactly "celebrate" the snow that comes along with Christmas in December, but I went with a snowflake theme for my trio of ATCs anyway: 

These backgrounds were already in my Christmas stash, although I did get a chance to use my new mica spray on the embossed snowflakes to the lower right! Shimmery. :D In addition, all the stamped and die cut elements were already made and just waiting to be added to these. My other main contributions were cutting the strip of patterned paper for the side of the one ATC, and adding the blue brad to the centre of the die cut snowflake.
A closer look at each one: 

(Yep, noticed the one wonky snowflake arm AFTER
I photographed. Luckily, I was able to
nudge it into its proper place.)

Not surprisingly, we weren't the only ATC challenge to come up with this theme, so I will be adding these to both ATC Around the World: Christmas Time and ATCs with Heart/ATCs hit Herz - also Christmas Time.
