SDC 170

I have made this card for this weeks Stampotique Designers Challenge where Kristen is hosting the challenge to get your spook on!! I have used the wonderful Daniel Torrents "Oh Boys" stamp, with a Spellbinders die cut, a couple of Hambo Stamps spiders, and a piece of corrugated card. I am also gonna apply for the Guest designer for the Stampotique blog, sooooooooo wish me luck guys!!!...I have already noticed that the competition is fierce!!! but as the saying goes...nothing ventured!!

I like BIG BOOKS!!!!

After winning a $30 voucher over at the Stampotique Designers Challenge blogspot last week,  I hopped straight over to the Stampotique Store and ordered myself some more fabulous stamps....so I cannot wait til they arrive...eeeeeekkk!! I love joining in on their challenges, and this week the fabulous Corrie is challenging us to use book text on our project, well I not only used a book page for my background, I made a little book for the "Little Hoo Hoo" monster to hold, I masked off the owl that he is actually holding, and decoupaged another arm to him so that he is holding the book under his arm. I was gonna use the quote "I can read you like a book"... but when I saw how big the book was in comparison to Little Hoo Hoo, I decided to go with this sentiment instead.

It is that time over at Hambo Stamps as the new Hambo Hoedown Challenge is on, and as there is a Hogtoberfest sale, the theme is all about the PIGS. Hambo pigs are the absolute best, and just as you think it couldn't get any better, they went and got a sale on!!!...30% discount!!! so trot on over to their site and grab yourself a bargain. 
For my sample I have used the Ham On The Run pig, isn't he just the cutest!!!

A Real Fun-gi!!

Over at the Stampotique Designers Challenge this week is all about masculine cards!!! yes....the dreaded male cards!!! I thought I was going to be really challenged with it this week but no!!!...I know it is a bit cheezy and has probably been done a million times before, but it was the obvious thing that popped into my head when I was looking at my small stash of Stampotique stamps......soon to be a bigger stash as I won a $30 voucher this week from them....Yipeeeeeee!!. Anyway I had soooo much fun coloring in this gorgeous giant shroom, and just love how the background came out, blending ink through a stencil on glossy paper, then running it through a pool of distress ink.....loooooove that technique, then after a few splases and a computer generated quote....bob's your uncle!!
