Waltzingmouse Stamps Pajama Party

Evening! I am participating in the Waltzingmouse Stamps Pajama Party today, and this is my last card, for the Bedtime Story sketch challenge:

I used Nordic Winter stamp set and Tumbled Glass distress ink.  For the shaker I used glitters, stars, tiny blue beads and sequins.  I hope to check out the other entries after I cook dinner!

Waltzingmouse Stamps PJ Party

Evening all! Earlier this week I noticed Waltzingmouse Stamps were having a Pajama Party and I've never participated before.  I dug out my WMS stamps and couldn't stop stamping!

I can only link one card, per blog post.  In the morning I will look at creating a separate blog post for each card.

(Can I apologise in advance for the camera shake?)

I had aimed for the 'Red and White' category but every time some other colour just snuck in there, so I'm opting for the 'Old Pajamas' category - use older WMS stamps.

I began by stamping with white ink on black paper, using the small and large snowflakes and the tree stamp from Nordic Winter to create a snow scene, adding some sequins for sparkle and mounting on kraft:

I liked the snowflakes background so much, for one of the cards I just added nested tags and used the little trees as leaves, adding ribbon and a button and mounting on white card:

I wasn't nearly done with stamping snowflakes, so I thought - red snowflakes - why not? This time I stamped baubles from 2011 Holiday Ornaments:

School runs and meals interfered with my plans at this point but I did get one last card made - for the moment - I was so inspired by digging out these older WMS stamps that I'm not nearly finished, and I hope to get at least one more made in the morning based on the sketch, check it out and have a go too! Anyway, the card. I used a leftover strip of the white-on-black snowflakes and added some gorgeous stitchery in red and white from Nordic Winter, and a label from the fabulous Seasonal Remedies set

My first WMS PJ Party and I had a lot of fun! Looking forward to seeing the other entries.

Birthdays at Craft for the Craic

November's challenge at Craft for the Craic is Birthdays and we want to see your crafty projects on that theme - cards, scrapbook layouts, jewellery, cakes, knitting, any kind of craft!

I went with a card because I'm going to need an 18th card next month.  Now I'm not saying an 18  year old should immediately go out and buy a drink ha! I just liked the image :)

I had some fun with embossing paste, using a Hero Arts stencil, and while the paste was still wet I sprinkled over some fine glitter.

I hope you'll take a break from creating Christmas projects to make something birthday themed and join us at Craft for the Craic.

See you tomorrow with some more cards.
