Oddball Scavenger Hunt

Time for a Scavenger Hunt over at Oddball Art Stamps.

Image may contain: text

If you would like to participate in our hunt for a chance to win 1 of 3 prizes...

FIRST PRIZE = $25 Gift Certificate
SECOND PRIZE = $10 Gift Certificate
THIRD PRIZE = 1 Free Stamp of Choice

Be sure to head over to the Oddball FB Group to start!

You may think you have seen these 2 bookmarks before, and you would be right!
I have however laminated them and added a new washi tape ribbon top on Alice.
It really does make them last longer and way more durable for that spilt coffee moment!

I have to admit that I love  Astrid the Fairy and also Alice, so this helps me to keep their fab colours vibrant as well.
Now did you notice the gorgeous Ghost Dancer paper clip - she is new.
Coloured with Copic Markers of course and again laminated and attached to a paper clip.

Now what better way to store them when not in use but to make a dashboard for my planner with a pocket!

Here's a coupon code to save 10% OFF the entire Oddball Art Etsy Shop

Here's a List of our participating DT to get your answers from their blogs.....

Have you seen the new image over at SheepSki Designs?

Mika - she is gorgeous and I just had to buy her as soon as Andrea popped her in the shop!

Ok, so I didn't colour her this time, but created a file to cut out in vinyl (yes, I have Andrea's ok).

I then spent time on google for an apt saying to recreate for her.

Just love her, but maybe should have done her on a gold plate to stand out more.....then again I did want subtle.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog.

Until next time, Happy Crafting.

As with the optional twist, I used a tag and stamped some splats on it to go with hose on my jounrat page.

Another of my Geli Plate backgrounds using paints and stencils.
Then added stamps with brown and purple inks for extra character.

Don't you just love that saying! It's from another Bugaboo image called JJ Coffee to Go.
 And here's my blooper for you - I used the image as well when I first made it ....

Then when I went to do this posing, I realised I was only going to be using the sentiment!!!!!

Winnie White Christmas Toppers

Come and join in the fun with us HERE!

This week's Challenge over at our Polkadoodles Blog is Anything Goes / Xmas / Winter.

Aren't these Toppers just adorable!

I have used 2 of the Topper Sheets from the Winnie White Christmas Big Kahuna Kit to create these gorgeous tags.
I just printed them off to the size I needed and then used my Christmas Bauble Die to die cut them out.
Added some ribbon and they are all set to pop on some gifts, or to use as embellishments for the Christmas tree!

You may also like to pop some Bakers Twine through them and attach to a Candy Cane and put at each place setting on Christmas Day - or again, use as an embellishment for your tree!

So no colouring here as they are all pre- coloured!
Just print off and cut out.

I do hope I inspired you just a little and would love to see what you can do with the Toppers too!

Wonderland ATC's

Have you checked out the wonderful images over at Vera Lane Studios?

I must confess I normally just see what wonderful creations Stephanie does with them (I'm on 2 different DT teams with Stephanie and just adore her work).
Well, after seeing the Wonderland Set 1 planner page Stephanie did, I just had to buy them!!!
LOL, plus another couple....hmmmm I see more in my future as well!

Anyway, after buying them and joining the Facebook Group......awwww I see a Wonderland ATC Swap happening! Yep, sign me up for that!

So here are the two I made:

ATC #1

 ATC # 2

Gosh, I tried the doodling around the edges again!!! OK, I think I am getting a bit better at it.....
Coloured with copic markers, black gel pen on #1 and white gel pen on #2.
Backgrounds are distress oxide inks on waterpaper - getting better with those too.
I have put Crystal Effects on the eyes, eyelids and glasses to make them shine and pop abit.
Those sentiments are the two that come with the 4 images . Love them!

Ok, so they are the two I am I thought I'd play some more for my own album and did these two for me. This time I used Glossy Cardstock (retired SU in my stash) with the distress oxide inks. Love the sheen it gives.

And then because I am into bookmarks / paper clips for my planner, I made some of them too!!!
I am keeping the Madhatter but will give the other two away with my ATC's in the swap as an extra!

Awwww how cute are the new Wonderland Set 1 images from Vera Lane Studio!!!!
Clearly I'm waiting to see what Set 2 will be......
I'd love to see what you create with them just for fun.

I am entering in the following Challenges:
  1. Crafty Sentiments Designs
  2. Incy Wincy Designs
  3. Lil Patch of Crafty Friends # 69
