Keep Calm and Party on with The Stamping Chef and DICC

Good Day, It's time for a new challenge over at the Desert Islands Crafts Challenge blog, and this time we are sponsored by the fun and quirkiness that is The Stamping Chef.



Here's our Itinerary;
1.  Lots of pink 
2.  Sugar skulls
3.  Suckers or sweets (lollipops or candy)
4.  Hearts
5.  Add a feather or wings
6.  Pearls or gemstones
7.  Add a banner or bunting
8.  Stitching (real or faux)
9.  Anything but a card
10.  Spritzes or sprays

and here's my creation;
For my card I used the awesome 'Zombified' image from The Stamping Chef.  My image is coloured with a mix of Letraset Tria and Promarkers, with the addition of a little Graph'It Shake It pen in White.  All my faux stitching was added using a Pigma Micron Pen.  The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps, not sure where the papers were from , as they were a gift from my mum.

Remember to play along with our challenge all you have to do is use 3 or more items from our Itinerary, it's that easy, and we don't mind if you enter your project into other challenges too.  So why not enter your creation into The Craft Place's current Anything Goes Challenge, to be in with a chance of winning even more goodies.

Thanks for visiting with me today

Whimsy Stamps Showcase Blog Hop - Ashlan Valor Tangles

Hi Everyone and Welcome to our special Ashlan Valor Tangles


Showcase blog hop!!!!
Today we are showcasing a collection of beautifully hand drawn Tangles by artist Lori St. Clair.

Tangles are a relaxing, contemplative, non-objective art form that permits a viewer to enjoy every opportunity for imagination and inspiration to swell as the image before them unfolds.You discover what a creative moment holds when you share in the process of letting it lead your imagination through the intimate details it possesses.
Tangles touch each individual personally. Share one with someone you want to touch in an extraordinary way. To quote Lewis Carroll: “When you are describing, a shape, or sound, or tint; Don’t state the matter plainly, but put it in a hint; And learn to look at all things, with a sort of mental squint.”

My card features the beautiful 'Angel Wings' by Ashlan Valor Tangles. This gorgeous image is coloured with Graph'It Markers and teamed up with papers and stickers from Echo Parks 'This & That' Collection. I added a layer of Red Mirri Card along with some fimo roses.

All Whimsy Stamps digital images are 300dpi for high print quality.You can re-size, flip, or rotate to fit your own project To find all of Ashlan Valor Tangles images please visit the Whimsy Stamps Store

Don't forget to leave comments along the way as there will be 2 mystery DT Members who will each be choosing a winner from the comments left on their hop posts!

These winners will each win an Ashlan Valor Tangles digital image of their choice. The Grand Prize winner of the hop will be chosen from the very last stop, which is Valou

This winner will receive all 5 of the Ashlan Valor Tangles digital stamps of their choice from the Whimsy Stamps Store

The hop will run for 1 week and end on Friday 14th March at 12 Noon EST, when the lucky winners will be announced on the Whimsy Inspirations Blog

Awwwwww What a Cute Wee Westie from Whimsy Stamps

Well to my Wee blog for a Wee Whimsy Stamps post featuring the cutest wee West Highland Terrier image by Crissy Armstrong, he's going to steal your heart, cos he sure stole mine;
I've teamed this cute wee chappy up with some My Mind's Eye Papers from their 'The Sweetest Thing' Paper Pack. I've also used this wonderful wee sentiment from Raindrop Echo Design's Animal Companions Sentiments Digi set.

I used Graph'It Markers to colour my image along with the White Graph'It Shake Pen.  I added some hand drawn border details using a Sakura Pigma Micron Pen.  To finish my card, a little bling in the shape of some orange gems.

I have to say I love how this Wee Westie turned out, If I was ever going to have a dog, this is the breed I've always wanted, my parent's were going to buy me a Westie Puppy when I was a teenager, but by the time we got to the farm all the puppies had been sold! So it was obviously not meant to be.

That's all from me for today, hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and Thank you so much for visiting with me, please come back soon.
