Thankful - Artsystamper challenge





Hi lovelies, hope you are well! Today I am sharing my DT creation for Artsystamper. There's a new challenge over on their blog and the lucky winner will receive a wonderful prize from their Etsy Shop. 




I have created a layout using the beautiful Autumn Gifts paper kit and the Autumn Gifts Stamp set. 







I have also used this wonderful fall theme photo as a focal point on my layout. 




I have created lots of layers using the coordinating paper from the set and distressed the edges using Walnut Stain DI. Next, I used a Tim Holtz mixed media brick die, which I adhered to the last layer of paper. To complete my layout, I used a TH ruler stamp along with two of the beautiful Pumpkin digital stamps from the Artsystamper kit and some cheese cloth. 

Thanks so much for stopping by, I really do appreciate your visit! Hugs, Zowie xx

Vintage collage tags/bookmarks



Hello lovelies, hope you are well! Today I am sharing some vintage collage tags/bookmarks that I have made. I was inspired by a wonderful artist on Instagram called CB Expressions. 








To create these, I have used some left over paper scraps that I had in my stash. This cute little birdie is from a vintage book published in1975. I have been thrift store shopping recently!

Hello lovelies, hope you are well! Today, I have a tutotrial on this vintage card that I have created. November 11th Veterans day in the U.S.A and Armistice day, here in the U.K honours the sacrifices that were made during past wars. We remember them and thank them for their services.





To make my card, I took a pre-scored kraft card and adhered a piece of vintage sheet music, which has been distressed with the edge of my scissors and Vintage Photo Distress ink. 





Next, I adhered a layer of graph paper which I tea dyed and stamped using Vintage photo and a Kaisercraft grunge background stamp.




Next, I took a piece of corrugated cardboard and tore the edges, again I used Vintage Photo to distress them. I then adhered it onto the left side of my card with double sided tape.




For the next layer, I adhered a vintage receipt using double sided tape and pop dots to lift it up from the layer beneath. 



Next, I added a vintage ticket to the left side of that layer. 




Finally, I adhered the vintage photo and the date 1861 which I had printed from my computer. 




Thank you so much for stopping by, I really appreciate your visit! Hugs,

Winter days - Artsystamper challenge







Hello lovelies, hope you are well! Today I am sharing my DT creation for Artsystamper
There's a brand new challenge over on their blog and the winner will receive a fabulous prize from their store. 




I have created a winter theme mixed media card using the beautiful Snowbirds stamp set and Wintry paper set from Artsystamper. 




To create my card, I have used a blank white pre-scored card. Next, I adhered a piece of textured paint paper from my own stash and then layered the distressed blue pine cone paper from the Wintry paper set on top of that. I then added another layer of the texture paper. I have also used a brick wall texture stamp along with Tsukineko Platinum Planet ink to add some more interest on to my card. 





I then used a Tim Holtz Holiday Greens die which has been covered with Viva Decor 3D snow. I adhered the branch along with some die cut pinecones to the bottom-left corner of my card. Finally I adhered the beautiful pre-coloured snowbird stamp on to the top of the snowy branch. 





Thanks so much for stopping by, please do check out the fabulous challenge and the beautiful creations made by the Design Team.
