Under a creative spell

Anything goes at Fashionable Stamping Challenges

Wooo hoo! Time for a new theme at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this time it just couldn't be easier - Anything goes! Of course you need to remember to include traditional stamping on your project but if you are just as mad about stamping as we are, I am sure this will come naturally to you :).

Every fortnight we are blown away by your amazing projects and I am sure this time it will be no different. The entry that will knock our socks off (the most) will get a fabulous prize from the lovely Marina from Cottage Crafts.

Can you believe that FSC will be celebrating its first anniversary on Tuesday? Wooow, where has the time gone??).

As a sample for this challenge I am sharing a card I made for my dear super talented friend Ruby from Ruby2Shoes who got married to her lovely fella back in May :). Once again - congratulations Ruby & Ian, you are so perfect for each other!

For this card I used lovely Mariposa papers, paper doily, cheese cloth, lace and ribbon trims... hmmm, love the shabby chic look. This gorgeous birdcage stamp is from Crafty Individuals (coloured with Inktense pencils) and I also stamped Papermania Mr & Mrs stamp on white velum.

By the time this post goes live I will most likely be travelling back to UK from my holiday in Poland... Well, I hope I will be well rested by then so I have lots of energy for getting back to crafting and visiting your gorgeous blogs to see what you've been up to!

Hope you will join us for this challenge and if you want to see some gorgeous inspiration, head over to the challenge blog for pure eye candy from my Fashionable DT Sisters :).

Big hugs

Hi Joanna
I also wanted to say congrats on your fabulous piece of work in Craft Stamper - it is beautifully executed, and I love the very femine take on your set of drawers.

Thanks for your comment on my blog - I've had a search back through my emails and the Etsy shop I bought the push molds from is called MoldMuse. :)

They are great molds and very easy to use... I'm pretty sure I sought out the shop after seeing a project in a magazine (might have been Craft Stamper?) that used their molds.


What a lovely creation! Thanks for playing at The Crafty Pad this week for our Things With Wings Challenge!
Good Luck
Dawn xx
PS I have candy on my blog.
