Shopping Our Stash Challenge #175 is Rollin’ Rollin’ Rollin’, you can almost figure that one out in an instant, you need to use round things, make a round card, use lots of circles, use round embellishments there are lots of ideas. Here is what I came up with.
House Mouse stamp for at least a year and it has never seen ink (hanging my head) but when the challenge was posted I just had to ink it up coloured with alcohol markers and layered on pretty in pink cardstock then attached to a premade scalloped oval card base (I have had a package of them for a couple of years) I then added the pink shiny sticker embellishments.
Thanks for stopping by today and go dig out all those “round” things and join us at Shopping Out Stash for the challenge.

This is the second week of Challenge #97 Fall Leaves at the Cheerful Stamp Pad there isn’t a sponsor but the prize is a Guest Design Team position for at least two weeks. It is a good way to try out being on a design team if you are wondering how it would be. Since there isn’t a sponsor I had to come up with my own Fall Leaves after a couple of ideas failed this is what I ended up with……
The stamp set I used is a cling mount from Stampin’up called Gently Falling, it is a two part set, I don’t seem very good at lining up the second step, then again I should use a stamp a ma jig. I embossed the one layer with the pumpkin cuttlebug folder, I used Tim Holtz distress markers on the stamps in several colours, stamped on white then the lined stamps I used versafine moss green. Wasn’t very happy with all the white showing and tried to add more colour, before I scrapped the leaves I tried water and an aquapen to muddle the colours, thought it worked not bad, I had the most beautiful bow to put on it but it was way too thick to mail so made a button with a sizzix button die and covered it with paper glaze (that is another story) put the green and white baker’s twine through all 4 holes and tied a nice bow.
Close up of the detail on the leaves, oh yes I fussy cut them out too. The inside is not finished yet, I think I might make it into a thank-you card.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you join us in the Fall Leaves challenge.

I struggled with this challenge I had an idea and then checked out all other ideas I could come up with and then back to the first one. It didn’t go well, I think when it took me four tries to get a “clean” image I would have stopped but I blundered on, I won’t bother you with all the horrific details just think of what could go wrong and it did. ……here it is.
Thanks for visiting today and you have two weeks to get your Iconic project to the SOSS Blog. We want to see who, what or where your icon is.
