Keeping it simple for That's Crafty


The new challenge starting today at That's Crafty has the theme of "keep it Simple"

I have a clean and very simple card for the challenge featuring the Doc Martin Boots by The Deep Red Cling company.

I love my DM's so I added bright girly colours to the card using Decoart Multi surface paints and a Dina Wakley stencil, finishing it with a word from the Tim Holtz Big Chat Sticker Book.

Full details of the challenge can be found by following the link at the start of this post.

Hope to see lots of entries for the challenge. Carol x

It's Spring Stampotique SDC192


It's Wednesday and so that means the new  Stampotique challenge  starts today, and this week Valerie is the hostess for the theme, and she has asked us to use springs or something that will make things pop up from out artwork.

I have used some driftwood to make a little village using the Stitched houses from the latest release. I have used wire and springs to make flowers pop up around the houses. I did really wish I had the "there are fairies in my garden" stamp to use on this as it would have been perfect for it.

I used the following stamps

Stitched Houses

Tiny Spiral
Carol's flower

By The Sea Pot


I have an altered metal bucket for That's Crafty this week. This came with an Easter egg in it at the weekend and I must admit I was more interested in the bucket than the egg.

I have been redecorating my kitchen and I wanted something pretty to hold a plant on the window sill. I chose a seaside theme as a friend who I had not seen for a while came to visit and as he walked into the kitchen mentioned how much it made him think of a beach hut so this set of stamps by the Artistic Outpost seemed the perfect choice for my pot.

Fear of White Spaces: A work in progress


I have a bit of a thing about not leaving white spaces on my journal pages, so this  week for That's Crafty I set myself a little challenge to embrace the white space. This is still a work in progress but I am fighting the urge to cover the whole page in paint.

Stars for Stampotique SDC186


It's Wednesday and so that means the new  Stampotique challenge  starts today, and this week I am the hostess for the theme and I love stars. I actually love to lie on the grass on a dark night a watch them in the sky above me, preferably in the summer but to be honest I am not that fussy. So this week I have asked you to use at least one Star on your project.

I have altered a cute wooden money box this week using some of the stamps from the latest release as my main focal points.

The money box is available to buy from That's Crafty and all I could think of as soon as I saw it was how well Kate's Bunny Boy would fit onto the front of it.

I used the following stamps

Bunny Boy

Dog Cube
Crayon Circles
Design Cube
Star Light, Star Bright
Text Star

Journal Style Card


Those of you who follow my blog will know that me and cards have a difficult history. I don't know what it is about them, maybe it's the sentiment that's expected on a card, or is it just a brain thing. But this week I have attacked it from a different angle, and gone journal journal style on a card for my That's Crafty post this week.

Oodles of Doodles the new That's Crafty Challenge


The latest challenge on the That's Crafty Blog the theme is "Oodles of Doodles". I have used the lovely Betty Grable Stamp by Deep Red Cling stamps on my tag.

I never, ever, ever share my doodles they are on my private journal so this is a public first for me and it has caused me so much angst, and I wrote on it too so it's double angst. I got a creative lettering book for Christmas and I have been having a go at it without much success as I am to much of a critic (read that as a big baby) to ever do it on a public journal. So I have tried a tiny word on this in the most basic text, I am hyperventilating just thinking about this publishing itself in the morning (big breath) so be kind.

Full details of the challenge can be found by following the link at the start of this post.

Hope to see lots of entries for the challenge. Carol x
