Visible Image Stamps, Promarkers, Distress Stickles Dry Glitter, Ranger Stickles.

Hi Crafty people,

I've had such a busy week this week, the time has flown by again. I can't believe we are at the end of October already, Christmas is nearly upon I'm nowhere near ready, lol.

Anyway lets get down to craftyness, it is now November so a new Challenge has started at the Visible Image Blog, the new theme is
'Make it Sparkle'.

Here is my inspiration for you to see, in the shape of two Christmas tags,
using the cute New Christmas Character stamps

Both tags were made on a Ranger black size 8 tag, and both Character's were coloured using Promarkers. I used some die cuts from my stash, Cosmic Shimmer dries white glue for the snow, sprinkled with Tim Holtz's Distress stickles dry glitter, in Clear Rock Candy, and Stardust Stickles.

Snowman Jacks tag has a background made with the 
Enchanting Snowflakes stamp, which I stamped using Versamark, and heat embossed with Wow, Snow white sparkle embossing powder.

I hope you will make a sparkly project, using at least one Visible Image stamp, and enter it into the challenge this month, 
there is a fab prize of £20 for the chosen winner to spend on stamps.

If you are going to the NEC next week, 7th-10th November, do go and visit  Visible Image Stamps, stand G47, there will be some show promotions, and you will be able to meet the fabulous dynamic duo,
 Helen and Mark,
 who design and hand make all the stamps themselves,
 you will also see some of the super DT samples on display to give you some inspiration.

And take a look at the Facebook page, where you can ask questions, post pictures of your creations using Visible Image stamps, and join in the banter with other lovely crafty people.

Thank you so much for visiting, and thank you also for the smashing comments you leave me, they are very much appreciated,

Take care, see you soon, hugs Pauline xxxx

  11. Great Tags, loving how you have made them, but they did make me giggle, I thought Santa was robbing the toys away, with a funny look on his face, and I can just image that snowman going BBBRRRR and shivering, he does have a look on his face that shouts I'm Cold.
