ATSM #88 - Holiday

Hi everybody, I hope you're having a good week!

This week's theme at Addicted to Stamps and More is "Holiday" -  create a project featuring a holiday of your choice which could be Easter, Christmas, New Year, any national holiday, a favourite holiday destination etc.

Our fabulous sponsor once again is STAMPlorations and the winner will receive a stamp set. Also, we're delighted to be joined by the very talented Anni as Guest Designer.

For my DT card, the basket and eggs were stamped in black Memento and coloured with Promarkers and blender pen and the panel was embossed with a little frame embossing folder. The bow was separately stamped, coloured and cut out with added button.

Would like to link this to the following challenges:

Card Concept #6, CAS-ology #87 and CTS#69

Hi everyone, I hope you're well and having a good day.

I'd like to show you a card made today using the Floral Frame die set by Memory Box. The floral frame, tag and five flowers were cut from white card. I scribbled 3 different SU! markers onto an acrylic block and used a little sponge to apply colour to the flowers. The sentiment tag is a bit small but I was able to find a little birthday sentiment stamp that fits and a touch of white Liquid Pearls was added to the flower centres.

Would like to link this to:

ATSM #87 - Make Your Mark

Hi everyone, and a big hello to new member, Natalie. I hope you're all well and have been enjoying the fine weather!

It's time to start a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More and this week it's Make Your Mark - use pens, colour pencils, markers, paints and chalks on your project.

Our fabulous sponsor is STAMPlorations and we are very pleased to have as our guest designer the very creative and talented Anni

For my DT card, I've used SU! markers in three different ways.

1. For the background, scribbled on an acrylic block, sprayed with water, stamped onto the card and blended a bit with an aqua brush.
2. Scribbled the pens onto a craft mat and picked up colour with aqua brush.
3. Coloured directly onto the diecuts and softened with aqua brush.

Don't forget to check out the inspiration at the ATSM challenge blog and we look forward to seeing your beautiful creations!
