Sometimes when I have lots of things to blog, I don't know whether to split it up into individual posts for each item or whether to just go all out in one long post.
Today, I decided to go for the one long post.
First I will start with the Stampotique Challenge, where the theme is Christmas in July. I didn't think I had any Christmas-sy stamps from Stampotique, but then I remembered the legend of the Christmas spider, a story I have had a fascination with for a long time. You can read about it here.
So I decided to use Mr Stripes and make a simple tinselly card that fits with the legend.
Stampotique stamps are available from Happy Daze in the UK.
Today I also have this simple cupcake card for a young boy featured on the Frantic Stamper blog, please visit and leave a comment as this month there is a prize again for a comment picked at random from a random post. it was a great prize last month so don't miss out. All the instructions, stamp credit etc are there.
Also from the frantic stamper is this Apple stamp from The Frantic Stamper's own range of stamps, I made this for the Marker challenge at Gingersnap Challenge as I have coloured the apples by blending whispers markers. This card will also be featured on the frantic stamper blog at a future date.
