Smore Gnome Please


Ink N Splatter time again.  
This week I played with another set from their new release
Now this gnome is after my own heart.  Love a good smores.  

Now what I have done is a little different.  This release is kind of focused on Autumn.  Here is Australia it is Spring.  So I went with a Christmas theme as I seem to be making a lot of that theme at the moment.  

It is a little sad as I did not play with our papers for this project.  I went the red and green and added gold on the mushrooms.  Reminds me a little of Santa eating the treats the kids have left out for him on his busy night.  
Just goes to show you that with a little twist on the colour combo's you can change the theme the stamp was aiming for.  
Hope you like my little project.  
Happy crafting!

Pumpkin Spice


Ink N Splatter have just release their September released
These gorgeous little gnomes are gnome for the Thanksgiving holidays.  
My project I hope reflects this.  
and matching papers for the season

I rolled a bunch of serviettes (might be napkins in your part of the world) and used the pattern paper as a belly band around them all.  Then I coloured up the image, hand cut them out and adhered it to the front of the belly band.  I nice little addition to any table setting.  

We here is Australia do not celebrate Thanksgiving and we are coming into Spring quite nicely.  This will be used at out next BBQ.  Great way to make our craft supplies stretch into everyday events.  

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you liked my project.  

Happy crafting!

Little Boy Boo's


Gee that week went quick!  I am back sharing another project for 

I am playing with 
Little Boy Boos stamp set

I just love this months papers so much.  These ones are from 

I decorated a little caldron I have had for years.  Could be used for trick or treating but our kids are too old for that.  So it sits in my craft room so I decorated it.  I put a belly band all the way around with matching papers too.  
And isn't the little Frankie just the cutest!  I coloured him in traditional halloween colours.  Love the combinations.  Threw in a spooky tree that is highlighted by that beautiful starry paper behind it and a few cobwebs.  
Thank you for stopping by.  Be sure to check out all the other great inspiration from the DT on the Facebook page.  
Happy crafting!

I am finally back playing along with our 
Sketch Saturday challenge!

This challenge we also have a twist use Red, Yellow and Blue as your Colours

I gave the optional twist a go this time around too.  

When I have been creating cards not for a Design Team project I have been going through my stash to revisit or use for the first time, sets that just waiting to be used.  This one is an oldy but a goodie.  
Building Blocks from Kindred Stamps
The colour theme really plays well with this set. Just the right project for any lego fan.  
Don't forget to play along with us.
Happy crafting!

Gnome Magic


More Halloween inspiration coming your way.  
release is awesome for this.  
As an Aussie, Halloween is becoming more and more popular.  
We live out of town so we do not get any trick or treaters.  But that does not stop me from playing with these cute images.  And I have to say, I am loving the colour combo's from the paper pack 
Purples and greens.

The sentiment is not from this set.  It is one from my stash that I thought would suit this magical gnome, who is from the stamp set 
I reckon he could even be the gnome version of  Dumbledore!  Not exactly him, but close enough.  
I added the bright green border around the sentiment to match the green in the pattern paper.  Threw on some cobwebs and gems and you have yourself magical goodness.  
Thank you for popping by and I hope all you US crafters enjoy your spooky night!
Happy crafting!
