My final entries from my stamping frenzy this weekend. Tomorrow, I’ll start working on the newly posted challenges for this week! Hope to not fall so far behind again. I like to try to do a few hours of stamping every evening. Therapy, you know!
This is one of my favorite Bugaboo digis. You’ll see me use it often! This time I used both the sweet unicorn and the rainbow/cloud image that is part of the set. Colored the mane and tail with alcohol markers, schmered them with my Zig 2-way glue pen and poured on a healthy dose of sparkles. (Actually, this isn’t craft glitter. It is actually a little container of glitterly pinky-purpley eyeshadow that I found for a buck at Walgreens some time ago. I love how it REALLY sparkles!) Am entering it into the current Bugaboo Bingo challenge, bottom row “Bugaboo image + sparkle + sentiment”.
Bugaboo Stamp- Bingo Challenge
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge- Add a Sentiment
I used to make a lot of cards with Stampscapes images. Need to start doing that again because they are always impressive and actually fairly easy to do. This card, which I am entering into a few challenges, including Victorine “On Wings” challenge, includes Stampscapes three geese silhouettes and tall grass images that I stamped onto a photo of a South Dakota sunset. Added a sentiment that I found somewhere years ago. Thought it was a perfect fit to the trio of geese image.

CAS-ual Fridays- Friendship
Victorine Challenge- On Wings
This card, ala Shabby Chic style, is made from some lace that is at least 50 years old. It came from one of my mom’s craft stashes that I saved from the trash bin when she passed away 7 years ago. Although parts of the lace are deteriorating, it is precious to me. In this card I just covered those threadbare patches with flowers, which added to the delicate beauty of the lace. (I know that my mom would have loved seeing a bit of her lace collection displayed on this vintage looking card.)
Deep Ocean Challenge- Shabby Chic/Vintage
Crafty Hazelnut’s Patterned Paper Challenge
Di’s Digi Stamps- Fancy Flowers
This last card is being entered into a few challenges. One, Poppy Power, requires that the card is made from stamps from two sets. This card is made from a retired set of holliday borders from Stamping Up (I think from the late 90’s!) and a sentiment from a Printworks Thanksgiving set. (I’ve always loved the playful look of their dot lettering sentiments!) I am already getting into the mood for fall, so am hoping that this card pushes the season along! The Cute Card Thursday challenge is titled “Fun in the Sun”. I love being outside on crisp sunny fall days. Ah…. One order of warm apple cider, please!
