Fossil Pattern

Hello!

I have been playing with a fab new stencil to make some quick, one layer cards.  The Fossil Pattern creates bold designs which are particularly effective for cards for men.


I simply masked off a strip and inked up the stencil in shades of distress oxides before stamping the sentiment.  I shall link up at Simon's Monday Challenge where we are using stencils.



I shall link this card up at The Male Room Challenge where Anything Goes (minus the optional twist of origami).

I hope you like these masculine cards.  The stencil is available to buy in my online store - www.funkyfossil.co.uk

Make a Wish

Hello!

I hope that you have had a great weekend :)  It has been a busy one so I haven't had as much time to craft as I would like but I wanted to play along at Time Out.  The word inspiration - Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground - had me reaching for my Shooting Stars stencil and my Chubby Unicorns stamps.




I inked through the star stencil with distress oxides and coloured the unicorn with pencils.  The sentiment is from WPlus9 and I added one of my MDF stars.

As it is a birthday card, I shall also link up at Seize the Birthday for Anything Goes.

And finally, I would like to link up at AAA Birthdays first challenge where Anything Goes.  I am sure that it is going to be a very popular challenge :)


You can buy the products that I used on my card in my online store - www.funkyfossil.co.uk:

Happy Birthday!

Hello!

I am here with a special post today to celebrate a big birthday milestone with the lovely owner and designer for Uniko - Bev.  The wonderful Jane from the DT has organised a surprise birthday hop for Bev so here is the card that I have made for her:




I used Uniko's newly released Mid Century Modern Floral stamps in bright retro colours to create this card.

As this is a birthday card I shall link up at AAA Birthday where Anything Goes - check out this new challenge!  I will also join in at Seize the Birthday without the topping.

Happy Birthday Bev - have a fab day x

CAS Coffee

Hello!

I have a card to share today that I made for the current challenge over at Less is More where the theme is Beverages.  Of course it features my stencils :)


I simply inked round the edge of my coffee cup aperture stencil and added the sunray stencil.  The sentiment is from Altenew.

I hope you like my fun and simple design.....you can find both of the stencils in my online store, www.funkyfossil.co.uk

Adventure

Hello!

I wanted to play along with the current challenge at CAS Stencil Challenge where the technique is to layer our stencils over a coloured background.  This is what I have made:


I masked off a panel on the card front and inked it with Fossilised Amber before placing one of my new stencils - Batik - over the top and inking through it with Rusty Hinge and Ground Espresso.  I die cut a giraffe from Sizzix from dark brown card and stamped some safari themed words.

I shall also link up at Inkspirational where the word prompt is Adventure and at Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies challenge.

The stencil is available to buy in my store - www.funkyfossil.co.uk:

Rainbows and Unicorns

Hello!

I am stopping by with a very quick post to share a sweet card that I made over the weekend with my Chubby Unicorn stamps :)  Hopefully it will bring a smile to your day!


I simply combined him with a lovely MFT rainbow die and sentiment.  A bit of colourful washi tape at the bottom completes the card!

I shall link up at Time Out's current challenge as I think that this little unicorn has a playful twinkle in his eye :)

Sparkly Stencils

Hello!

I have had lots of time in my craft room this weekend so have had the chance to play with some of the new stencils that I have been adding to the store.  I just love the versatility of stencils for backgrounds, focal points, and using with a whole range of media :)

Here is a card that I made with the new geometric circles stencil:


I masked off a panel on a piece of white cardstock and went over the stencil with Imagination Crafts Sparkle Medium in Lapis Blue.  I shall link up at The Male Room Challenge where we are adding numbers to our cards and at Simon's Wednesday Challenge where the theme is Birthdays.


I went for an even more dramatic look on this card by stencilling through my Bold Damask stencil with Nuvo gold texture paste on black card.  The sentiment is gold embossed on vellum and is by MFT :)

I have a 3 for 2 offer in store at the moment which is due to end at midnight tonight, GMT.  Just quote the code HAPPY at checkout.  

   

Thanks for stopping by!
