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 :


7 octobre challenge music

I started this card with the background, using the swirls from the DECAY JOURNALING stamp set, I then added some fluorescent paint...my new fave product!!, I then stamped out the little figure from the ARTISTS 1 stamp set, I cannot look at this little chap without singing "ooops upside your head"....lol.


 Jennie
Here is another one in my Postcard collection. This month the theme is music, and I used an oldy, but goody product, ( which is now discontinued- Distress Stains,which we do have in the shop, but not online) for the background, including our Music Stamp, a strip of printed music, and one of the Ballerinas from Dance stamp set. 
Adding an old sweet foil ( I collect everything!) added dimension. 
 
We hope that you will join in this month's challenge, and also join us on Facebook too.

Jane's thoughts

For this months "Black and White" challenge I have decided to make a little book of thoughts, inspirational quotes, positive affirmations...stuff like that. I made the spine myself as the eileen hull spines were not long enough, this is a 6x6 book. I rounded the corners of the spine with my newest purchase, the WRMK corner chomper...I love it, my little corner rounder punch just doesn't do the job on anything thick, but these are wonderful.

Hope to see your wonderful creations

 Black and White Challenge by Siobhan



Well here it is, my last project as a Creative Team Member at the Artistic Stamper, Black and White is the challenge, so I decided to use the Lesley Matthewson tile no 2 stencil as a guide and lots of background stamps, stamped in black archival and then cut out to fit in the stencil, can you guess how many different stamps I used.

 
Well I stamped 13 but used 12!

Jennie 
I have made another postcard in my series, this time using our new stamps from Artifacts. The sentiment is one of our quotes . I used PaperArtsy paints, and glossy accents to highlight the fussy cutting! 
I also did a reverse one too! 


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

Inspiration by Siobhan



I used a variety of The Artistic Stamper stamps and stencils to create this card, along with white embossing and distress oxides. The Kiki stamp by Neil Walker is one of my favourites.  I stamped "Inspiration" onto tracing paper but didnt get a perfect image, so I flipped the paper over and added white signo pen behind the letters, an error which turned out fab, well I think so, in fact I shall be using it again.

Happy Birthday to me

Well guys...it is my birthday tomorrow...not that I want any more, but it is better than the alternative!!..lol. so I am gonna have a lovely day, quaffing champagne, being taken out wined and dined in my favourite restaurant, doesn't get any better than that for me.
So I suppose my looming birthday inspired me to actually make a birthday card!!. Boy oh boy, this card must have been the most frustrating card I have ever made, no matter what I did, what I threw on it, the inks just kept sinking into the card...grrrrrrr, could I heck make it more vibrant. I gessoed the back hoping that it would make the inks stay on the surface...nooooo....I must have wasted more ink, but I kept on, even sprayed it with my hairspray to keep the inks on the surface, and finally after all my efforts I was rewarded with this grungy loveliness, ooohh I do love to just throw ink and paint about and see what I get.
Anyway, thought for today, don't give up, it will be ok in the end (and I am not just on about my card), and a Happy Birthday to me for tomorrow.

Carpe Diem by Titbelsoeur

Hello there !
This summer, I am a "workshopless" designer, and as such I had to adjust my makes to the bare minimum ! Hence this 15-mn multiple card making, like here : Seize the moment by Titbelsoeur



The technique is the same : 
I have first stamped the "CARPE DIEM" sentiment from the very same plate as last week's : Journaling Words 3 size A5 plate  with Archival ink and added two boats from my Beach Huts & Boats 2 © Tit Belsoeur plate. When dry, I have watered the paper with a watercolour brush and then added watercolours here and there to have them mixed together, except on the boat I have kept dry.


I hope this card gives 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.

Love colour by Siobhan


I decided to make a nice bright cheery card using Distress Oxides and inspired by Tracy Evans on Hochanda last week, she used some really simple but effective techniques, which I used to highlight this fabulous hydrangea stamp from The Artistic Stamper, I also used the quote from the same Botanical 3 set.
