Stampotique Challenge 219 - Scary Confusion

Welcome back to the blog today and thanks for stopping by. Wednesday marks the day for another challenge over at Stampotique. 

This week Arwen McCullen is our hostess and her challenge to us is "Scary Confusion" 
This is what Arwen says about this challenge

"I like creepy things and I like weird, combine your work with a little scary and a little confused"

What a fun challenge for this week and right before Halloween too haha!! 

For this challenge I made some ATCs that will be used for a swap. 

I used Stampotique Stamps:

Buru and Breakfast - By artist Daniel Torrente

Somehow Buru has lost his head and something has taken over. LOL

I hope you will come by the Challenge Blog and join us this week. It's Creepy time
Have a Happy Halloween!!!

Stampotique Challenge 218 - Blue and Brown

Hello everyone, so glad you could make it to the blog today. Thank you for coming by and spending this time with me. 
It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another challenge over at Stampotique.... thanks to all who joined us last week, it was fun hosting.

This week Gez Butterworth is our hostess and she is challenging us to use Blue and Brown in our creations. Here is what Gez says about this challenge

"Blue and Brown is one of my favorite color combos, I hope you have fun with it too"

I decided to decorate the outside of my smaller Dylusions journal. I use this journal quite a bit so I thought it was time to decorate the outside and what better way than to work with the cardboard cover as part of my background?

for this cover, I used a combo of acrylic paints, stencils, 
washi tape and die cutes. I also used Stampotique stamps:

Penelope - By artist Daniel Torrente
Art Junkie - By Artist Roc Nicholas

I hope you like my journal cover for this week's challenge. Please come by the Designer's Challenge Blog and join us. Each month two lucky random winners will get a 30.00 gift certificate to the online store.

Thanks for coming by and have a great day!!

Altered Puzzle Challenge - Finale!

Ever since we finished the Altered Puzzle Challenge on my Facebook group
I have been wanting to do something with my puzzle. At the point where we finished it wasn't all attached, I just put the pieces together and left them.

I finally got around to glueing those pieces together. I simply used E6000 for this

I applied the glue around the edges and smooshed them together, I did all of this on my craft sheet so that the excess would not stick to anything

I used various object to set on top of my puzzle while it was drying, just to keep the pieces flatter
I let my puzzle dry overnight

Here is what my puzzle looks like when all glued and dried.

I just love it, I decided to hang it in my house using an antique hanger

Let's see what you all have done with your puzzles!!!
Thanks for coming by and sharing this with me.

Stampotique Challenge 217 - Birds and Bees

Hello and welcome back to the blog today. It's Wednesday again and it's time for another challenge over at Stampotique Designer's Challenge Blog and 
I get to be the hostess this week. My challenge to you is "Birds and/Or Bees" 
I just love anything to do with nature and specifically Birds and Bees. Let me see your best "birds and/or bees" project for this one.

For this challenge I decided to make another tab for my Filofax organizer , this is the Filofax that I use for the Stampotique design team here. I keep everything I need for the team in this organizer and I can take notes and write down dates for challenges, winners and guest designers all in one place. 

My tab is slightly smaller than the page, I did this because I just picked up a piece of cardstock that was already cut and was a piece of scrap and then went to it.
I love how this tab came out, so fun and fall colors are my favorite.

For this tab I used Stampotique Stamps:
Big Bee with Tiny Bee - By Jo Capper-Sandon
CracksComfort Zone and Vintage Bill By France Papillon

Thanks for coming by and checking out my tab, I hope you will join us over at Stampotique for this fun challenge. You might even win a 30.00 gift certificate to the online store.

Stampotique Challenge 216 - Tag

Boy am I behind this week or what? The challenge started on Wednesday but I've been super busy so I missed the deadline. Anyway, Coby is our hostess this week and her challenge to us is "Tag", here is what she says about this challenge:

"I do love tags but I use them too often. So please show me a tag on your project."

So I worked on a simple tag this week. 

I used Stampotique Stamps:

Silence Speaks - By Jo Capper-Sandon
Crow Line - By Janet Klein 

I hope that you will join us for the challenge this week. Come on over to the Challenge Blog and check out the inspiration from our wonderful design team too.
