Thank you tag by Titbelsoeur

Hello there, I want to show you today a Thank-You tag I have made for a friend of mine who reads a lot of books. I have first stamped this beautiful Butterfly from Butterflies 2 size A5 on the piece of paper I had first coloured in pink with Distress ink. Then I stamped Artifacts - Thank you Text with various Archival inks. When I have sticked the paper to the tag, I have embossed the Butterfly on the edges.



I hope my tag gives you inspiration to participate in our 


for 3 chances to win Artistic Samper stamps !
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Your comments are very much appreciated here, on my blog
Bye for now and happy creating.

Quick card by Siobhan


Ok well it's a quickish card, once I'd done the background.

I was playing around with my gelli plate and the circle mask from The Artistic Stamper, and once I started I couldnt stop, checkout all the prints I made.


I also had an idea of printing directly to a card blank and this is how my card came about.


I just stamped "Donna's Youth is a Gift" stamp onto card trimmed it out and stuck it on, I like the sixties sort of vibe it has.

Jane's Junk Journal

Hi Guys.  I am still addicted to my journal making, so I took the opportunity to do a green journal, literally and figuritively!!. I have been wanting to do a junk journal for a while now, so have been collecting used envelopes, junk mail, bits of odd paper,etc... I see plenty on pinterest, and youtube, and they all look amazing, but I have to say that mine just looks like a collection of rubbish at the moment..thank heavens for gesso!!!
Anyway, the challenge this month is "go green", and so I have done my journal cover in mainly green inks, with plenty of Artistic Stamper products.


For the background I started with the CALLIGRAPHY MAT 12 and the SEQUIN WASTE OPEN stamps. then I used the A4 SWIRL MASK with texture paste. Then the two dragonflies are from the INSECTS & BUTTERFLIES set, then finally a bit of texture from one of the stamps from the MINI BACKGROUNDS set.
How will you interpret our challenge for this month?...I look forward to seeing your creations.

So Green is the Colour, and though I am a proud St Patrick's day baby I decided to used Neil Walkers Butterfly stamp and a selection of green papers from my stash, to create a paper pieced project.
For more information on how I did this project, checkout my blog

I have made another postcard ( this years challenge for myself :)  I used lots of different greens from the Tim Holtz Oxide Distress range, and added layers with some of The Artistic Stamper stencils. The Gibson girl was coloured with Distress Oxides, and the wings are a pair of our Flourish stamps , which one of my customers pointed out looked like wings! Spot the mistake! The sticker is one of Tim Holtz's. 

 We hope that you will join in this month's challenge, and also join us on Facebook too.
We look forward to seeing your creations. Don't forget to add a comment when you have posted your entry.
Happy Creating

Butterfly Tag by Siobhan



I decded to have a play with some alcohol inks on Yupo Paper and to have a go at using Tim Holtz's alcohol lift ink pad, I started off with the intention of cutting the butterfly image out, but I loved the effect of it with the splattered background on, so left it as it was, do you find yourself having a plan and having to deviate quite often, but then that's the artistic process for you.

So once I was happy with my background, I used the alcohol lift ink, I stamped this off on some scrap paper, should have done it on a glossy paper to get a better and brighter effect.



You can see the ghost butterfly left behind, I had stamped using the Stamping platform so was able to emboss stamp into the exact same spot, sprinkled wth fine black embossing powder and then heated it very gently as Yupo paper does not like the heat, I still managed to buckle it slightly but decided to go with the flow, I cut it out in a tag shape and added a sentiment and some ribbon.



Hope you like x

So, the card I made for this months "Heart it" challenge was pretty simple, a bit of brusho powders, the LARGE SEQUIN WASTE mask, a little retired Artistic Stamper stamp, and a teeny tiny heart embellishment, oh and a touch of crackle paste...just cos that's my new obsession at the moment!!!... I am always behind the queue!!.


Hope you can join in this months "HEART IT" challenge with us.
