Christmas Fat Book Page

Here is one of the stamped fat book pages I have made for Christmas lists I am on! I have used Pine Needles distress ink again, stamps and some blobs of red stickles and a piece of red grosgrain stapled to the side to brighten it a little!

Birthday ATC

I have again gone with the blue to make a birthday ATC - I love Broken China almost as much as Aged Mahogany now!! And the nature theme again I am afraid!!

Autumn ATCS

I run a monthly rubber stamped ATC swap - and this month I chose Autumn for the theme, one of my favourites!! Here I inked and stamped in different ways and generally splodged ink - Distress Inks and Adirondacks - around the place!!

Autumn Card

The new card challenge on CSF is to make an Autumn themed card - so I got very inky and messy making this one!! The stamp is a Rubber Stampede one - very fiddly to cut out - I won't do that very often!!

A Change of Colour for Me!!

Lately I have been using lots of Aged Mahogany Distress Ink for my cards, so had a change and used Broken China for these 2 cards which I think look quite fresh and bright!!

Christmas ATC

I am running 3 Christmas ATC lists this year - and am on one of them! This is the atc I have made - they will all be the same. I have used one of my favourite type of stamps - a House Mouse - and have kept it quite simple as I often get a bit carried away with inky bits!!

Halloween Challenge

The latest Fat Book Challenge on CSF is Halloween - so I made this page using my TH tree stamp, and what is supposed to look like a night sky behind it with a silvery moon (top right) but it doesn't show up too well!! Quickutz ghosts and some chipboard alphas finished off the page!!

Fat Book Page for Tracy

One of our forum members is very poorly in hospital, and we are making a Fat Book for her to cheer her up. This is the page I made a few days ago, using my favourite Aged Mahogany Distress Ink and my flower stamps.

Christmas Fat Book Page

I made this page, for the Rubber Stamped Christmas Fat Book List I am running on CSF. The stamp is a House Mouse of which I have many now!!! The background is a Hero Arts script stamp, Twas the Night Before Christmas, which is one of my favourite Christmas stories!!

Snowman Fat Book Page

I am running a Rubber Stamped Snowmen Fat Book List on CSF so have been playing around today with my favourite Penny Black snowman stamp (well, my ONLY Penny Black snowman stamp!!!!) and made a few pages like this one!!

Collage Style Fat Book Page

I have made a few paper bag books in this style and thought I would make a fat book page for a change!!

Tim Holtz Style Fat Book Page

I made this page for someone on the Craft Swap Forum who asked for a TH style page in a RAK. I used Peeled Paint Distress Ink and distressed embossing powder, and also clear embossing powder with a bit of sparkle added for the wings and crown. I hope she is pleased with it!!

Winged Things ATC Swap

I run a monthly rubber stamped atc swap on the Craft Swap Forum. Last month the theme was Winged Things, and this is one of the 3 atcs I made using Peeled Paint and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks on the background, and stamped with a Penny Black image and a House Mouse words stamp. Finally I edged the atc with a Krylon pen.

August Scrapbook Page

I am making a Month by Month album of my garden and this is one of the pages I have just made for August.

60th Birthday Card

I made this for my sister-in-law, using Aged Mahogany Distress Ink for the background, again splattering with water and drying, then stamped round the edges with several different flowery stamps (my favourites!) and then stamped one single image which I clear embossed and matted it on to the card with a stamped greeting.

Trees Card

I stamped an image of several pine trees, and watercoloured them with Marvy Le Plume pens, then applied some glitter glue on the trees and underneath them, and matted onto some green glittery paper, then stuck onto a dark green pearlescent card, and finished off with a message peel off.

Inky Christmas Cards

I wanted to do some Christmas cards using inky backgrounds, so I rubbed Pine Needles Distress Ink over white card, and splattered them with small drops of water, then dabbed dry with kitchen paper and blasted with my heat gun. Then I stamped randomly with a pine needles stamp and some small words from my HOTP clear stamp set.
Then I stamped greetings onto a piece of card and heat embossed with clear embossing powder and matted it with dark green and then gold and stuck them on the card.
