Challenge #27 – A Christmas Song

We may have Vintage in the title but your creation need not be vintage and as long as you follow the theme of the challenge you can enter anything.

We are a stamping challenge and we do need to see some form of stamping on your projects. You may use digi downloads for enhancement of your project but the main focal point must be stamping.

Wow we had so many entries last month and everyone was fabulous, thank you so much for taking the time to show us your gorgeous makes.  We will be picking a winner and three highly desirable pieces next Monday so please pop back and see if this could be you.

We have a fabulous company called Flonzcraft who will be sponsoring us each and every month. The winner of each monthly challenge will receive a voucher for Leo’s Store of $20. Let’s see what our fabulous challenge for November is plus you have one month to show us your gorgeous creations.

Before we start onto the challenge we have to say a very sad goodbye to Viv who has decided to step down.  We are so sorry to be saying goodbye but she has a busy year coming up and the decision was made to step back from VSC to concentrate on other things.  If you pop on over to Viv’s blog you will be able to read all about her exciting news for the New Year.  Good luck and thank you Viv for all your fabulous makes for VSC and we wish you all the best.

#27 – A Christmas Song

The song can be a Christmas Carol or just a Christmas song

This is a first, we are seeing all the new DT’s work together with the seasoned VSC design team.  So let’s see what they have all made for your inspiration, feast your eyes and then wherever your path leads with your creation just pop back and enter with Mr Linky below.  It just might be you winning that $20 to spend with Flonz Crafts.

New DT Member Irene

Please stroll down or click HERE for our current challenge # 26 Anything But A Card

Well this is what you have all been waiting for.  Let’s see who is joining the other DT sisters at VSC.

We are so pleased and happy to announce that Irene from Irene’s Crafty Corner has agreed to join our happy little band as the last of our newest DT members.

Here is a short bio to introduce her:

Hi, my names Irene.

I’m married and a Mum to two grown up boys and a crazy Border Terrier.  Started papercrafting about 15 years ago and love nothing better than spending the day in my little craftroom playing with stamps, inks, paints, paper and anything mixed media.

So happy to have been invited to be part of the VSC design team.

Today we are showcasing this delicious and very beautiful picture frame which Irene has made as her debut piece for the current challenge.

She stamped the images, which you can find here, then painted using Distress inks, Victorian Velvet, Peeled Paint, Brushed Corduroy & Fired Brick.  The main stamped image and quote were edged with Antique linen Distress stain.
 
The machine stitched border draws your eye to the brown card which was adhered to corrugated cardboard before being distressed with walnut stain.  Creative expressions metal corners were used as extra embellishment.

How clever is this, Irene has put an easel stand on the back so that it can be displayed on a dresser.

I am sure you all want to congratulate Irene yourselves so it would be fabulous if you hopped on over to her blog, left her some love and also saw all her other beautiful makes.

Newest DT Member Christine

Please stroll down or click HERE for our current challenge # 26 Anything But A Card

Well this is what you have all been waiting for.  Let’s see who is joining the other DT sisters at VSC.

We are so pleased and happy to announce that Christine from Cardmaking, Scrapbooking & Other Papercrafts has agreed to join our happy little band as one of our newest DT members.

Here is a short bio to introduce her:

I started making my own cards over 10 years ago and my crafting took off as soon as I got hold of my first stamp, a random buy in a bargain bin. I am hooked on stamping and a confirmed stamp-a-holic. Just love stamps as focal points but also to make backgrounds both for cards and scrapbook pages. With a mix of inks and techniques the possibilities are endless!
 
Style wise … I love and try everything from CAS to grungy and I am particularly attracted to vintage images, which has something to do with my putting together a scrapbook of my grandparents and family.
 
The South of England is where I live with my partner and son, who sometimes make fun of my crafty ways but are thankful for keeping them supplied in customised cards and are even fueling my habit by buying me magazines and other crafting items!   Aww!!!!

Another fabulous pedigree of crafting and her work is amazing.  Today we are showcasing this beautiful inspirational box as her debut piece for the current challenge.
