November 2019 - Hand Stamped

Welcome everyone to our November Challenge.
Our theme this month is Hand Stamped, chosen by the lovely Craftyfield. We love you taking part in our challenges so this month, (don't forget focal point must be hand stamped) to enter your projects to be in with a chance to win a £20 Gift Voucher.

This month I share my love of stamping and I am so looking forward to see your stamped entries!

I want stamping to be the focus of your makes, although you are free to use die-cuts, stencils etc... around the main image. Do share the name of your stamps or, if you are using found objects, your own carved implements (potato print anyone?!) share their picture. You can using stamping platforms and acrylic blocks, but NO digis.
To kick off the challenge I transformed a book cover, as usual, all the details are on my blog.

So on your blocks(*), get set, stamp!

(*) Stamping blocks of course, see what I did there...

 Good morning and welcome to November. As I type this it's cold and rainy, but hopefully when you read it I'll be basking (do people still bask?) in the sunshine on my holidays. 
For me this is the perfect challenge as I love stamping, and I also love retro, so here's a combination of the two!

There are a lot more pictures here on my blog, so I would love it if you visited.
Thanks very much for looking and have a wonderful month xx

Happy November.
Stamping is my favourite craft technique.  I have used it both in the background and for my focal image.
Here is my first project to share with you:
Pop over to my blog  to see how I created this card.
Happy stamping!

Halloween is over and today is 1st November and All Saints' day. I wanted to mark this transition day with a tag. My Visible Image guardian angel served as my "saint" saying goodbye to Halloween and looking forward to searching the starry skies at Christmas. Not long now! 
Hidden underneath my stamping you can see a very starry golden background, do fly over to my blog here to see it. 
Have a great month and happy stamping.
Bye for now Jane x

Its a twofer one with my make today - if you check out my blog you can see how I created an A4 page and then turned it into two cards. Hope you can join us for some stamping!

Hello everyone, 

Happy November! here's my card for the 'hand stamped focal image' Challenge. 
Of course there is a video too, just in case you want to see how I made this. It was a little struggle as it didn't go as I wanted. But sometimes that happens.. 

You can view the video HERE. You can also go to my BLOG where there is also a link to YouTube. 
I will be back real soon with a new project with more inspiration. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
