Grumpy Elf (or Swaperoo - Week 2)

I love the Stampotique girls.  For the SDC #312 "swaperoo" challenge I've combined two of my faves (Marsha and Noelle) to create a slightly grumpy looking elf card for the holidays.  :)

Well, I suppose if I had that mountain of presents behind me to take care of I may be a bit grumpy, too.

Check out the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog and join in the fun!

Stamps Used:

  • Marsha
  • Noelle
  • Towering Gifts
  • Jingle Your Own Damn Bells!

SDC 312: Swaperoo!

It's time for a new challenge over at the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog.  This one is a fun one - swaperoo.  This is where you take two or more stamped images, cut them and then recombine them into one image.  Talk about getting more from your stamp purchases!  Plus, it really gives a little boost to The Muse and lets her play around a bit.

Today I combined two stamped images to make my Magical Spirit ATC.

In the above pic it's a little hard to see, but she has lots of sparkly magical bits on her, too (thanks to Wink of Stella glitter pen wonderfulness).  Look closer...

Gotta love a little sparkle.  Join in the fun on Stampotique's Facebook page.

Stamps used:

  • Isabelle
  • Kate's Angel
  • Spiral

SDC #311 - Week 2: Bugging Out

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Stampotique's bees.  For the Stampotique Designers Challenge this week I've made an ATC celebrating the Queen Bee.

There are all kinds of glittery bits on this that just don't show up in the photo.  Her wings have clear Wink of Stella on them and her body, head and around the edges have Inka Gold.  Metallic gold paint splatters on there as well.

Stamps Used:
  • Big Bee
  • Medium Bee
  • Hexagon
  • Texture Cube 1
  • Alpha Background
Find all the details on the buggy challenge HERE.  Thanks for swinging by today!

Happy Everything Card

I think interactive cards are so much fun.  I decided to go with the reveal wheel for Lawn Fawn's color challenge.

In the spirit of sending holiday love I included all the December holidays.

Check out Lawn Fawn's color challenge HERE.

Happy November!

Stampotique Guest Designer for November

Lucky me!  I was asked to be the guest designer for the SDC blog this month - thank you, Stampotique!

The first challenge for November is "bugging out".  There are so many great buggy images available at Stampotique, but that's not all.  Keeping in mind the holiday season that's fast approaching I decided to go with "Fleas Navidog" - ha ha!

I love, love, love the stamps that Stampotique offers.  There is an excellent variety perfect for all different types of styles (the quirky ones are my favorites).  Check them out HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Stamps Used:

  • Fleas Navidog

Busy Little Elves....

When I originally started this blog I intended to showcase items in my Etsy shop.  Instead it's turned into a vehicle for sharing my other artsy endeavors.  Just for fun I'm sharing some of the seasonal makes I've added to the shop or have taken to Hunni Co (a local shop).

(These ones make me chuckle, I must admit.)

If you need some love to top off your holiday gifts, pleae stop by Elves In the Attic and do some shopping.

Happy Holidays!
