Whiff of Joy and Stampavie


Whiff of Joy Challenge

Thanks for joining us last week, I think you all enjoyed working with Heathers fabulous sketch. This week we want you to "Think ouside of the Box" and create

Anything but a Card.

A box, Calendar, Candle, Bookmark etc the possibilities are endless.
The only rule is you must use at least one Whiff of Joy Stamp and have fun. So just pop over to the Challenge Blog and come and join us. Click Here to play



I am sure that most of you are like me and absolutely snowed under with Christmas preperations and card orders etc. So I hope you will forgive me for a really short post and quick project this week, I would normally have liked to have a card to go with this candle, but the hours run out. I have used the lovely new Herb and his Girlfriend stamp from Whiff of Joy for the candle and have coloured them with Distress Inks, H20s and a little hint of stardust pens on the swirls. The frill around the bottom was punched with my beloved Martha Stewart Doyley Punch.



Stamp with Stampavie



We have a great Sketch again on Stamp with Stampavie, there are some lovely cards on the Challenge blog by my fellow Dt members so click Here to check out the challenge and join us this week.


There are still two stamps in this new collection that I just cannot use, no matter what ink I use, I have tried all the suggestions posted on the blogs but have just given up now. So I am back to using this one again, she has been colourd with Distress inks and H20's as usual, sorry the photo is so bad, she is much more dazzling IRL. Papers are Basic Grey, the white strip is again punched with MSDP the ribbon is from Poppicrafts brilliant Christmas Kit, Flowers from Prima, Sentiment Magnolia Gold Corner and Flower Middle from Eggstravaganza.

Hi Jacqui
So sorry I have not visited you in ages, what a awful friend I have been. What with my birthday last week and then Henry cutting 4 teeth and been floorwalking I have done no new cards in nearly 2 weeks - how bad is that and not had chance to blog hop either!
The candle is absolutely stunning you have done a fantastic job.
So glad you had a wonderful weekend away - we need to do a catch up at sometime
hugs xxxx
