Addicted to Stamps and More #373 Holiday


Happy New Year!
Here are my first makes for 2020 for the Challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More.
And I am still on Christmas!



I have had a Todo machine for some while (bought cheap from an auction) and in general I prefer my BigShot. However I thought I better try its foiling properties before deciding whether it will go in the shipping for Australia.
Again I am going with very much CAS designs!

Recipe:
1. Kraft card blanks.
2. Foiled holly leaves and berries in different colours on white, and cut out.
3. Different sentiments.





Do pop over and see the makes from the rest of the team!!



Hope to see your make in the Challenge!!





Happy Crafting!

Leigh SB's 5th Annual Poe Appreciation Day Blog Hop - Day 3


2020 POE BLOG HOP

This is Leigh's 5th Annual Poe Appreciation Day Blog Hop.
It starts on January 19 at 9am PST and is a progressive hop spanning over 5 days.
Sign up not required...

Simply join the hop at any time before 5 to midnight PST on January 23 to join the fun!

Find more details here 

Today I will start by showing you another favourite 'Poeject' (from 4 years ago) - mixed media compilation within a burnt frame.


Next I have a new page from my current scrapbook
 (this is from Paperchase and 25 by 25 cm).


It basically features an Oddball Image - from Scare Crows Premium.
I noticed that Ike had used this the other day - funnily enough I had the same image on my desk printed and ready to go. I added colour with markers and cut it out.



I added a layer of brown paper then a paper from Tim Holtz.
I added the image and two sections from the end of 'The Raven' by Edgar Allan Poe, printed, placed on brown paper and with faux stitching around the edge (drawn using a red fineliner).



Finally I added some gold domed stickers.


I will add this page to the linky!


Happy Crafting!

Ike's World Challenge #128


Here is my make for Ike's World Challenges!


The current Challenge (#128) M is for Male 


and this is my midway post...




If you pop over to Ike's World Challenges you will find there is a super freebie to pick up...


Doctor




You might like to use this for the Challenge - but your image is free choice!

I have used Cheshire Cat and Alice - Hatter in a journal page.
I printed each image, coloured them with Copics and cut them out.
The background papers are from Craft Box Wonderland 6 x 6 Paper Collection.
I printed quotes on the computer cutting them into words and placing them in geometric die cuts.






Hope you will pop over to Ike's World Challenges and see the Design Team's inspiration for the current challenge - and join in!


Happy Crafting!

I am not sure how many new projects I will get done this year - my craft stuff will be gone on Thursday, ready to be shipped to Australia.


Today I have 4 new Poe ATCs to share - this year's contributions to my Poe ATC box!

The box and the pictured ATCs are past makes - if you scroll down this link you will find more details of these and other Poe makes.


The two ATCs from inside the box feature Leigh's Poe Love and Distressed Splatter Heart


Today I added these ATCs to the box:


I have used pink and purple textured card as the bases.
 I cut pieces of Ike's free Poe Raven paper and embossed these with
 Smeared Ink (no longer trading) Poe images in black embossing powder.
I then added metal embellishments and pink gems.




To the next one I also added Quoth the Raven also embossed in black, on kraft.



I will add these ATCs to the linky!




Happy Crafting!
