This week's Prize, supplied by Linda Luckin Designs - is this beautiful 'Butterfly Stamp!' everyone who takes part in this week's challenge by (10pm Monday the 29th of September GMT) will be entered into a prize draw and 1 lucky persons name will be picked at random winning this stamp!

Jo, Fifi, Becky, Lesley, Kate & Wendy


The background is embossed with snowflakes, then sanded and mounted onto the base card. The frame is stamped and embossed then cut out, two pieces of ribbon and a punched snowflake are attached before being mounted onto 3D foam pads. The snowman is die cut in white pearl and blue card then mounted onto the card with 3D foam pads.


I started with my square of blue card then I stamped Lindas little fish with blue stazon! I triple embossed it and added some acrylic gems. Then I stamped another little fish and added dazzling diamond from stampin' up to his scales.

I covered my card with patterned paper, and stamped a Cuddly Buddly image and water coloured her in. I stamped a message and put it in the middle of a flower and added a birthday greeting and more flowers down the side of the card.

I embossed my blue card with my snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder and then sanded over the embossing to reveal the white core. I then ripped the bottom and the top and inked the outer edges, finally I glittered some of the snowflakes. Next I triple embossed four mini chipboard squares and used doodlebug clear alphabet stamps to press into the melted powder. I matted these squares onto white card and then attached to the card. I finally added a knotted white velvet ribbon. ~~~~~~~~~

I made my atc using a cat stamp coloured with chalks. I used blue paper and white paper - embossed with my cuttlebug and finshed off with a white ribbon and blue flower!

For this challenge I am sharing a funky Christmas Card made using the Dot & Stripe Christmas set designed by Sheila Oliver for Tanda Stamps. I have paper pieced quite a bit of the card and embellished with satin ribbon and a clip.

What a great challenge. I won't be able to make it this time ... took part in a cyber-crop all day yesterday. And yet, I did make a blue/white LO for that crop ... but I guess it won't do for this challenge when it has allready been used in another? ;o)
You can all see it on my blog :o)
