The weeks sure roll by fast and its time for another Stamp Man challenge. This week we have to only use 3 colours creating a Christmas project. I have used distress inks and Tim Holtz stamps for this little atc - another one for the Stamp Man atc swap for December.
The chocolate is covered with SU Christmas paper then the penguin punched with the various SU punches. - so simple yet such a fun thing to hang on the tree. She has also done trees, santa, snowlady, rudolph, angel and a choir boy as well as a robin on a branch. I loved the workshop Bee so thanks for sharing x
Over at Winter Wonderland my team mates and guest designer have made some gorgeous projects and with a fab sponsor too hop over and see what you might win if you play along .
Keep warm folks x Janet

This is a wooden box I decorated at the last craft retreat in September. I have stamped in black archival and used distress inks for all the colour. Stamps I borrowed off Bee and Linda as I had not taken Christmas stamps with me. The Tim Holtz ones I have anyway but it gave me an opportunity to play with the dark room door ones too so thanks gals!
The swaps should be coming back any day now - how exciting one of the ladies is from Russia!
So thats the task at Winter Wonderland. Make a decoration and enter in the inlinkz - you could be the randomly drawn winner of 3 digi stamps from Delicious Doodles.
Happy Friday x Janet

The image is coloured with promarkers and the paper is an old piece which I think maybe papermania. Matting and layering onto the shaped craft work cards card blank the ribbon and faux stitching/ dots just completes the look.

The gold matt piece was not big enough to matt the whole background so I have just added a strip which I quite like. There my card complete. Although I'm stuck in Christmas mode my team mates have been more adventurous so do stop by for some gorgeous inspiration at Tuesday Taggers.

This has been taken by my good friend Michelle or rather Midnight Crafter.
This project is for a make and take session for a group of ladies coming to The Stamp Man for a visit (the gatefold card) on the 8th and part of the Christmas gifts class on Wednesday 10th. It uses a set from the sale section which is perfect for Christmas - Aspects of design 32 flitter flutter snowflakes.

Papers are by Bo Bunny - I think they are called Noel. The card blank is by craft work cards and is a lovely shape. The image is of course by the lovely Mo Manning but is a polymer stamp and the Magical Christmas is a forever friends stamp. A dust of peeled paint ink, a few dots and we are done.

Katy has helped me get much better with my promarker colouring - the class was soooo useful and whats more I think she is repeating it in November so do check with her if you can get to Skipton to do it!
So back to the crad - cant remember who makes the papers or stamped image though it is sooo cute! The snowflakes were die cuts from a spellbinders die and I just added those jewelled snowflakes on top. The sentiment is by Butterfly kisses and card blank by craft work cards - just love that shape :0) I went for colours that were out of my comfort zone (see last post too) being a red and green gal for Christmas pinks and blues are very different for me.
Do stop by Bah Humbug as the DT have some gorgeous designs to inspire you too x
Thanks for looking x Janet

Last Sunday I did a wonderful promarkers course at my local shop and this was one of the cards I made. Image I think is Stampendous - papers I'm really not sure so maybe someone will enlighten me. I MADE myself move away from red and green for this one just to do something that bit different and I do like it. Katy was so helpful with hints and tips on using promarkers I really feel my colouring has improved quite a bit.
Now the WW challenge is sponsored by Robyn's fetish stamps who have lots of varied digital images on offer so go on join in - You could be the winner!
Do stop by Winter Wonderland where the team have made some stunning cards with Nativity scenes. I look forward to seeing your entries on my visiting travels x Janet

The stamp is by paperartsy and I have paper pieced it using some bits from the left over box - by basic grey. The sentiment is by papermania and the faux stitching detail was my daughters suggestion so hey this card was practically made by everyone else I just added the glue LOL. Digi doodle shop are our sponsors this week offering a $10 prize to the randomly picked winner - Brilliant stuff!
Check out my team mates over at Winter Wonderland - these chaps are in for such a treat this Christmas we will drive the Bah Humbugs away :0)
Have a great Friday x Janet

As the theme is Gold Dust I could not resist my old favourite of embossing on my card. The tree stamp is from the unmounted stamp company which I bought at the Great Northern Papercraft show a couple of weeks ago. The sentiment is from Butterfly Kisses and ribbon from Anitas. The simplicity of this card has made it one of my favourites this year. Do stop by the Keep it Simple blog and check out my team mates - I am away till later today so hope this schedules ok but know my teamies will have produced some stunning stuff! I am also entering this into My Partners in crafting crime which is a clean and simple card
