Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Monday 17 January 2022

Today is the day for me to show you another creation for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Facebook Group.

Our challenge this month is:

"SOMETHING NEW eg NEW YEAR or NEW HOME or NEW JOB or NEW CRAFTY ITEMS TO USE".

This week the Design Team were challenged to "ANYTHING GOES".

Here is my inspiration post with that theme.
This is my second altered notebook I've made for the New Year.

I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Sakura in March".

I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Mustard Seed distress ink and highlighted areas with my Sakura stardust clear pen.

The backing papers are from The Works.  I coloured the image in when I was away in October and went for the pink and yellow colour scheme.  One of the backing papers I coloured over with my Mustard Seed distress ink for it to match perfectly.

I have finished my project off with an MDF word "smile" coloured in with a gold Promarkers, yellow and white lace, pink satin ribbon, large flat back gems, thin satin ribbon tied on the spine as a bow and finally some die-cut letters saying "IT'S 2022".

I have distressed the backing paper and brown card used with my Tim Holtz distressing tool.  It takes quite a while to do but it gives a good effect.

Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Monday 10 January 2022

Today is the day for me to show you another creation for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Facebook Group.

Our challenge this month is:

"SOMETHING NEW eg NEW YEAR or NEW HOME or NEW JOB or NEW CRAFTY ITEMS TO USE".

This week the Design Team were challenged to "MAKE IT SPARKLE eg gems, sequins, glitter, mica, sparkle glitter drops etc".

Here is my inspiration post with that theme.

Recently on the television I saw a Tando Creative show on The Craft Store with a MDF hanger and stand.  I thought this would be perfect to use for keep an eye on birthday/other cards needed throughout the year.  In the set you get the MDF box, 12 hanging tags and 12 loop hanging tags and finally the bolt.  As you can see below I have not been well enough to finish the box but will do as soon as I can.

For my first tag for January I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Iris Mermaid - Greyscale".

I have coloured the image in with Promarkers, add Sakura Stardust clear sparkle pen to her tail as a mermaid needs a sparkly tail doesn't she and finally I edged the image with Tim Holtz's Peacock Feathers distress ink.

I painted the tag both sides  with white gesso and then a turquoise blue acrylic paint.  I then stamped the background with some Trudie Howard Sentimentally Yours fish stamps with some pearlescent Brilliance ink pads in blue and black.  I have had these since I first started crafting and they are still juicy and sparkly.  I used my Tim Holtz stamping platform and inked the images twice to get a good silhouette.  I finished the background off with some dotty stamps to look like bubbles.

I then used a font on the computer to generate the "JANUARY", added an "ahoy" die-cut and finally a die-cut seagull.

Here is where the hanger will eventually hang so I can keep an eye on cards that I need to make throughout the year.
