March Family of Macarbe Stampers Blog hop

 Today is the first monthly blog hop with the members of the Family of Macabre Stampers group.

Unfortunately what I had planned to make has had to take a back seat thanks to the norovirus that hit my house a couple of weeks ago.
What I have made instead is a little tag using stamps from the Smeared Ink rubber set Jack.

 Please hop along and leave some love for everyone else

New Beginnings with IWC

It feels good to be back in the swing of things again, today's make is my DT piece for Ikes World Challenge. I have used Sadness Walls for my tag which I've journalled on.

I do hope you will join us with our challenge.

Anything POES with Quoth the Raven

Our first challenge of the year has started at Quoth the Raven, the theme is anything POES so we want to see your dark makes with the Man himself on there somewhere. I have altered a little box for my piece.

I started by painting it all black, then when it was dry rubbed over some antique gold rub'n'buff. I then used some papers from Smeared Ink and 2 stamps from Smeared Ink, Poe and the skull to add to the paper that I used on the front. To finish it off I added a couple of stickers in the shape of the brackets and a bit of washi tape from Stampin' Up!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

First post of the year!

Happy New year everyone!

I have been rather quiet on here for a little while, I needed to take a bit of time to catch up with myself, get on top of my Uni studies and generally take a break from things. The card I am sharing today is going to be posted off to a Facebook friend tomorrow. The stamp I have used is called Pretty Poppy and can be found in the ArtiDoodles store here

I would like to enter this into the following challenges: - The card and papers have been in my stash for at least 3 years! This is the Year to use it or lose it :D - Old is all the stash I used, New is the new friendship with the person the card if for(hoping that counts)

Vintage with IWC

It's been a while since I have managed to create something for Ikes World Challenges, I am hoping this is the start of me getting some crafting time back now!

The theme this fortnight is Vintage, I have used the gorgeous Easter Chicklets for my piece. Now I know we are close to Christmas and I've used an Easter image, but it reminds me of a vintage Easter card I saw once. I've also used some vintage lace on my card.

Metal Madness with Smudgy Antics

After the craziness of last month it is nice to get back to a bit of normality. Today starts the brand new challenge over at Smudgy Antics, as always the challenge is anything goes but if you need some inspiration you can use the optional twist of metal madness. The rules are very simple, create anything you want but you must use a Smeared Ink stamp on there somewhere, the stamp can be rubber or digital and doesn't need to be one that is currently in the shop. 

For my first piece this month I have made a digital page, the stamp I chose to work with is called Behind. I started with colouring her in with Spectrum Noir pens then scanning her to add to the digital page. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Day 31 of 31 days 2015

Yay we've made it!! Ok so I have only just made it but I am glad I have stuck it out. My piece today is a digtal scrapbook page using the sentiment from Smeared Ink's Mad Science digi set. The photo is of my youngest who after our plans changed decided he would go trick or treating...of course this was only 20 minutes before he actually wanted to go so it was a mad scramble to find him something. It is a good job my house is filled with weird things. 

Thank you to all of you that have taken the time each day to come and visit and leave some love, it really is the only thing that has kept me going.
