Hi ya – it’s time for a Social Stamping Blog Host!
The Social Stamping Blog Host’s are the idea of Kelly Kent. The idea was that through stamping and craft, we can share our crafting projects with everyone, to stay connected. Although, where I live (Perth) things are getting back to the new normal – but Social Stamping is so much fun….that we are going to continue to do it! Yay!
The theme this time is ‘Sympathy’. Here is the card I made.
I used a stencil and some embossing paste to create a textured background. The Stamp Sets I used are Forever Blossoms, Peaceful Moments.

This week the Just Add Ink Challenge is Mixed Media. As soon as I saw this Challenge I decided I wanted to put together a Canvas that will sit on an Easel, on my Craft desk.
The term “ mixed media” is quite broad and covers many types of arts and crafts. It can include collages, 3D elements, altered objects like books, boxes or tags. You can use pretty much anything when putting together a Mixed Media art work or card. Paints, paper, buttons, fabric, photos, brads, ribbons, chip board, inks, air dried clay and the list goes on.
I found an old canvas that I had lying around, and painted over whatever was on it, with some white paint. Then started to add all the different layers.
Embossing paste to create a bit of rustic texture, Stamped images and sponged ink, splatters of ink here and there, a bit of Vegas Gold Shimmer paint, DSP, Brusho’s, Wooden embellishments, die cuts of Sun Flowers and leaves, a metal brad, braided linen trim and punched Daisies.
While I was making the canvas, I also decided to make a similar card.
Visit us at Just Add Ink to join in this Challenge, share your Mixed Media projects with us and see the wonderful Mixed Media projects the Design Team have made.
Below are a couple more of my Mixed Media projects. On the left is a mix of Powertex, Chip board, air-dried clay, stenciling covered with Alchemy Art Waxes. On the right is a Powertex Triptych
Hi Everyone, it’s Social Stamping time again and the theme this week is “Change”
There definitely has been a lot of Changes over the past few months. I’m sure you will agree, it has been a strange year so far.
I’ve stayed at home more
16 weeks working from Home (with a few more to come)
Not seeing friends in person so much – but a lot of online contact
Zoom – took on a whole new meaning
My face to face Card Classes have moved Online – which has been fun!
Let’s just say, my technical knowledge and ability has been on a steep learning curve!
At work, Client and Shareholder Meetings have been Virtual and Online
I worked on one AGM where participants were in 4 different countries and 7 different time zones!
Home schooling was for everyone! Parents LOVED it – not!
People are not so keen to greet each other physically now – elbow pumps are the thing!
Anytime anyone coughs or sneezes, they get the death stare from those around them
And I am sure there are many many other changes too.
For my card this week – I decided to make a card that changes. I made a Shutter card using the Celebrate Sunflowers and Forever Greenery suites.
The back ground changes when you pull the tab.
In the background, I used the Forever Greenery and Flowers for Every Season DSP.
This was a fun card to make – it kept me busy for quite a while.
So what changes have you seen or noticed through out this Covid / Isolation time?
