Christmas cards by Titbelsoeur



This is time to make our Christmas cards. There are many beautiful stamps in our Christmas cards folder here. For the occasion, I have made square cards. They are super-easy to make so you can make a bunch of them in one go, and still have some variation in them.
I have first divided a A4 watercolour sheet by 12 squares and stamped a Season's greetings from Mini Christmas 1 or Christmas Greetings # 1 A5 with black ink on each of them :


Once dried, I have stamped Happy new year! from Christmas Greetings # 2 A5 with water-based ink such as Distress everywhere on the page with various colours from blue to red :


Added a snowflake from Modern Christmas # 1 A5 on each, then cut out the squares and inked the edges, glue each one on to their card, et voilà !



I hope these cards give you inspiration to participate in our 

for 3 chances to win some of these fabulous
Artistic Samper stamps !
Thank you so much for stopping by.

I will be happy to read your comments about it !

This is my final postcard in my series, and as Christmas is coming, what else could it be but that! A gold embossed snowflake background, and lots of baubles from CaroLines Bauble set ( think there might be a theme on this blogpost!) gold embossed , and simply coloured using only 3 colours of Distress Oxide 

.

JANE

Don't you just love it when a practice piece and general mop up becomes the grungy background that you love!!!....pair it up with an MDF bauble shape, and another Christmas card made!!!

Coasters or door hanger ? by Titbelsoeur



Hello dearies ! This is the time to prepare our Christmas decoration and the best way to make these is to use the fabulous Artistic Stamper Christmas Stamps. I have used old CDs that I have covered with inked and stamped drawing paper.
I have just torn a piece of paper to make a cache for a snowy landscape I have inked with water-based inks such as Distress, stamped the tiny firs from the Christmas Greetings # 1 A5 plate, then sticked the image to the CD and cut it out. Either punch a little hole at the top of it for a hanger, or just place it on the table for a coaster.
Whatever choice, here it is :

The Artistic Stamper was granted an article in the November issue of the Craft Stamper magazine. For this occasion, we the CT made projects about Autumn. 
Mine may be named "Autumn in a Jar". It may also meet the Mix-it-up challenge, since I have gathered into it various grasses from my garden, and watercoloured stamped Mushrooms A5 Plate © Tit Belsoeur and planted all on flower foam.

Mixed Media Magic by Jane

Mixed media...who doesn't love it!!. I love the style, I love watching people do it...actually  I spend more time watching other people doing it than I actually do it!!! So for this months challenge "Mixed Up" says mixed products and techniques, which is what I have done for my sample. I have used stamps, spray inks, stencils, gilding flakes, actually I like the effect of the gilding flakes.  I first glued up a Tracy Scott stamp and stamped the texture paste, then added the flakes, gorgeous, and I think I will be doing that technique again. I have to confess that I was making this into a journal cover, but cut it upside down so the spine was on the wrong side, so just cut the spine off, I can always cut a new journal front and glue this on the right way.


The Artistic Stamper products used;

I look forward to seeing your "Mixed Up" creations.

This is my 11th postcard of the year, in my postcard challenge, and this time in the theme of mixing it up , I layered on loads of PaperArtsy Fresco paints, using a brayer. There are at least 9 colours! I then added a Lesley Ivy stencil with 2 more colours. I love Tim Holtz's Paper Dolls, especially the dancer... Add some of his wings, and she is learning to Fly......

The Sound Of Music by Jane

My favourite movie by far is The Sound Of Music!!. I have it on DVD, but I still have to watch it when it comes on TV, so as this months challenge is all about "music", then obviously I have to interpret a song from that film. Yes....I can hear you groaning, heck, she is using that stencil again!!!....but I just love it, so I'm not gonna apologise for it!!!. I have used the DOG ROSE stencil to interpret the edelweiss...yes, give me a bit of poetic licence!!!..but it also shows how versatile that stencil is!!. I have also used the SEQUIN WASTE OPEN stamp to add a bit of texture in the background by scraping a small amount of texture paste on my card and stamping the sequin waste stamp into it.

Musical mail-art by Titbelsoeur

Hello happy crafters !
I have made this mail art with a kraft envelope I have recently received, I wanted to keep the stamps that did perfectly fit with the stamps I had the pleasure to design for The Artistic Stamper.
To meet the October challenge, I have sticked music pages on it, then stamped with these stamps you may find here : Tit Belsoeur Stamps. Gessoed and distressed, then highlighted the stamps with a white pen, and now I just have to write the name and address of the recipient :
