Stamper of the Year? Nearly...

As I have mentioned... this year I decided to enter as many competitions and stuff that I could. That being said I found out at the weekend that I made shortlist for Card of the year, Yippee,

Here is the cover of the latest Craft Stamper magazine with my winning entries...



These are two of my favourite cards, just love the different details. The first is very similar to another card I had made, still dimensional paper piecing just using different stamps and papers! I painted distress crackle paint on base as before and inked in white! The snowflake is cut from shrink and glittered!


Materials:
Paper: BG Figgy, white card, grey board, printed vellum (insert)
Die's: Sizzix - flower layers, flower layers #4, build a flower, Accent with flower, Holly & berries, snowflake, Cut'bg - Tag, Nestabilities - Ovals
Stamps: WOJ - Winter Charlotte with cat, PTI -
Mixed messages, Basic Grey Clear Stamp Set -journal flourish, Paper Artsy - snowflakes
Ink: Colourbox - greens, StazOn - black, Brilliance - gold, midnight white, Copic Markers, Sakura pens.
Other: Glossy accents, Crackle paint, pearl gems, adhesive gems, stickles, 3D foam.



This second one I flocked a side of adhesive sheet with red fun flock then place over inked stamp and ironed the back... like you would velvet stamping. I then used copic marker to add some shadows on the flock, cut the coat out and raised on 3d foam over stamped and coloured image! It feels lovely like a velvet coat, very christmassy to me!




Materials:
Paper: Hand made velvet paper, white card, printed vellum (insert)
Stamps: WOJ - Willow with lantern

Ink: StazOn - black, Brilliance - gold, Copic Markers, Sakura pens.
Other: Glossy accents, adhesive gems, stickles, 3D foam.

or have a look here I have made a photo slide as I seem to take huge amount of photos when my little creation's are about to up & leave me!

Sorry for lack of visits & comments. PC playing at silly so & so's. Keeps crashing or taking me somewhere I don't wanna be, which means everything takes me forever.
