Autumn Stag

The theme at Allsorts this week is Autumn Glory, and as it is my favourite season of the year I had to play along. My card was made with the new Inkylicious stamp, Forest Stag, zig clean color markers, inkylicious fern stamp, memento inks and ink dusters. The tartan papers were from Craftwork cards.
Thanks for looking!

Rudolf Day for September

Happy Rudolf day! There are only two more Rudolf days after this one (scary!!!) I am adding another two cards to my christmas card pile. The first was made with mostly inkylicious stamps and a stencil. The snowflakes are from Hobby Art.
The stamp set on my second card is from Woodware and is called lino cut wren. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. This is such a quick card to make and won't cost much to post either. Do pop over to Mo's blog and take a look at the gorgeous DT cards, and there are still a few days to get working on building your Christmas card stash!

More things beginning with B

Time for a bit of mid-month inspiration for Stamping Sensations. This time B is for Butterfly, Bricks, Beige and a Background stamp. It's another lolly stick plaque. I used texture paste through the brick inkable, coloured the butterfly with watercolour pens and then triple embossed. All stamps and stencils are from Bee Crafty, who of course are our fabulous sponsors this month!
Thanks for looking!

 Here are three of my cards that are in the latest copy of Papercraft Essentials, out last week. I was thrilled when they asked me to do a feature back in June.

 If you want to know more please pop to your local newsagent or supermarket and pick up a copy.
If you do, you could let me know what you think, or even have a go yourself and share
Thanks for looking!

September at Stamping Sensations

It is the first Sunday of the month and time for our September challenge at Stamping Sensations. This month we have a lovely theme....
********I Spy something beginning with B********
My project this month features stamps and stencils from our sponsor, Bee Crafty, and my 'B's are Bird (the beautiful large swallow stamp), blue and brown (oxide inks). I used Bee Crafty Inkables Mandala 4Ticker tape 1 and Swallow
Even though it is an easy theme, we need you to play by the rules:

Please can I remind you we are a stamping challenge so must see a stamped image which reflects the theme as the focal element of your artwork , this means:
Stamping must be the central point of attention and interest
 We are pleased to welcome back Bee Crafty  as our sponsor this month, with a fabulous £25 store voucher for our lucky winner. There are some wonderful stamps and stencils on their website
Do pop over to the challenge blog and take a look at the fabulous creations from my talented team mates, many featuring Bee Crafty stamps!

Before I go I will just share a few more photos from our holiday in Wales. First up is Fairy Glen, near Betws-y-coed. I did a fair bit of scrambling over rocks to take that one!
 Next is a view along the River Conwy, near Beddgelert.
 and this is Moel Ty Uchaf stone circle, near Llandrillo.
Finally here is the view from the near the top of Pistyll Rhaeadr.
Thanks for looking, and I look forward to seeing your entries.
