Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #394 – Thanks/Thanksgiving

Hey lovelies, I hope you are well 🙂
It is time for a new challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
This week the challenge is


This week we are showcasing Tim Holtz  You don’t have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store


And here is my card for the challenge. 
As soon as I saw we was using Tim Holtz products I had to get out my Distress Inks and for this card I have used- Bundled Sage, Ripe Persimmon & Barn Door (all are linked below), along with The Autumn Greetings Stamp Set from Simon. 
For the gold spalts I used my Spectrum Noir gold sparkle pen and squeezed some out onto an acrylic block and then flicked across the card. 
I finished the card off by heat embossing the sentiment onto some vellum and adhering to the card. 

So now it’s YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

Visible Image….Jake Skates

Morning all 🙂 It’s Saturday which means Visible image time !

I have been playing with the fab Jake Skates Stamp set 

 I had so much fun making this card, and the whole card is made with Visible Image Stamps. 
This shows a close up of the strip of skateboards, it also shows how brilliant the border stamp is…both these stamps come with Jake Skates Stamp Set
With the Skate boards I thought they was crying out to be embossed, so I have used some bright yellow embossing powder on them. 
The Sentiment is also from the Jake Skates set (you really do get value for money with these stamp sets) I stamped this using my distress inks. 
The backing paper was made by simply stamping using Grunge Polkadot Background stamp and Mowed Lawn Distress ink
I coloured Jake with my Spectrum Noirs…he is Awesome isn’t he. 
The border was done using the border stamp (which is double sided so two stamps in one !) I stamped with Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink, and then overstamped with Mowed Lawn Distress ink. 
Stamps used: 

Have you seen Harley ?? Who’s Harley you may ask…
Meet Harley
How brilliant is he ? And look at all those stamps you get with him…so many possibilities !!!
There is also a brilliant Grunge Harlequin background stamp  To go with Harley.

That Craft Place Challenge Charming

Happy 2014 !!! Where did last year go ?!?! it certainly flew by didn’t it. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas, I was sadly ill all over Christmas & New year, But I had my wonderful hubby & furbabies around me, so that was more than enough for me. 
Anyway onto the first That Craft Place Challenge of 2014….The theme is “Charming”
Here is my design team make…
I used my Dylusions, Distress inks & The fab Star Mask from That Craft Place, I wanted to stars to be subtle and have used the mask just on the circle…i couldn’t really get them to show up that well in any photo, which is a shame because it looks great in the flesh
The Stamps are Tim Holtz and the charm is from my stash.
Head on over to the blog to check out the rest of the design teams fab creations, and why not enter yourself whilst you are there ?
