The White Rabbit!!!

Hi Guys!!. You will be forgiven if you think this is a post to do with Alice in Wonderland....but sadly noooo...The White rabbit is just who I am feeling like at the moment, running around saying "I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date"!!!. Heck what a dramatic week!!..sooo...forgive me on two counts, firstly for being late for my post, and secondly for using this image once again, the lovely hydrangea from the BOTANICALS 3 plate, it is my go to flower now and I love it. So as I was saying, it has been a crazy week, and I am still feeling a bit like The Mad Hatter, running around like a headless chicken!!! and that is why I have done this super quick card for our Inktober Challenge. who doesn't love an inky background, done with spray inks and distress oxides on a book page, I already had the flowers and the sentiment stamped on tissue paper, so glued them down with some gel medium, hey presto, super quick card.


Hope you will join our Inktober Challenge, I look forward to seeing your makes.

I first stamped the butterflies from the Insects and Butterflies stamp set with brown distress ink then heat embossed them with clear embossing powder.
I made the background by mixing a blue and green distress ink with water on to a craft mat, then swooped a piece of white card through the ink.
I then used The Artistic Stamper Random Dots 6 x 6 stencil with oxide ink and stamped over the top with the ring stamps from the A4 Swirls, Splats and Dots stamp set with oxide ink.
I then used the Decay Alphabet Lower Case set to stamp the sentiment onto another piece of card with the same ink, then matted and layered it
 
Jennie


I made a little bound book, and used Neil Walker's new Butterfly Square to decorate the cover. I used Distress Oxides in Old Paper, and antique linen to cover the book, and then stamped Tracy Scott's Background 8 on top. I inked Neil's stamp in Black Archival, and painted in the butterfly, by making a wash with the Distress oxides. White pen added highlights.

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.

MEMORIES

Hi Guys. We are well into this months "round and round" challenge....my favourite shape!!


I made this card a while ago while I was having a play with some structure gel and the Artistic Stamper large sequin waste mask. It dried clear so I then stamped the small dragonflies from the insects and butterflies set, and added paint and spray inks to the rest, then used a heat gun to bubble the paint and gel to add some texture.....well guys, I think that is how I rolled with this card....lol...my memory is rapidly fading...so that is why it got this title, a word taken from the framed words stamp set....very apt for me!!!
I do hope you can join in with our fabulous challenge, you will find the link HERE.

Woodland card by Titbelsoeur

Hello Everybody,
I have made a card for you today, using the Mushrooms A5 Plate © Tit Belsoeur I had the pleasure to design fot The Artistic Stamper. My background is made with waterbased inks sprayed on my mat, then I put the paper on to it and immediately stamped the Harlequin background from Mini Backgrounds # 2 size A6 to have it diluted. I stamped it on the card paper as well.
Then I cut out the mushroom stamped images I had coloured with watercolours and sticked them on to the background paper :

A Fond Farewell by Gemma Hynes



Hello Everyone

This will be my last post for The Artistic Stamper's Design Team. I have been a team member here since (I think) the summer of 2015 and I have loved every minute of it.

 I have been surrounded by so many talented people, including all my teammates both past and present, all the wonderful people who enter our challenges and Jennie who makes all the fabulous stamps we use. I have loved being able to look at everyone's creations and have been inspired by so many of you and I hope to have inspired some of you as well.

 I have had the pleasure of making and sharing with you all so many different projects and Jennie has asked me to share some of my favorites with you.

So in no particular order......



I love everything about this one, the colours, the finish, the photo. I wouldn't change a thing and that is not something that happens often.



This is a recent make, and it just makes me smile.


I made this card in 2016 but it's still a design I love and go back to again and again.

Number 4



This was also a make from 2016, I love the browns and yellows together with the torn card glued over the script stamp background.

Altered CD


This was one of the first if not the first project I ever made as a member of this team and altering CDs is still something I like to do.

I want to thank each and every one of you who has taken the time over the years to read my posts or to leave me a comment, it was hugely appreciated, so thank you.
