Beautiful Brusho

I have recently discovered two products that I absolutely adore, one being brusho colour crystals, and the other being stamps from Designs By Ryn. The water droplet stamp I have used on this card is just stunning, I have paired it with my other love...Stapotiques Large oh my I have so much love at the moment!!! I have entered this card in the challenge going on at the Designs By Ryn Blog  for a chance to win some more yummy stamps of hers.

In the words of Edgar Allan Poe!!

This week at the Stampotique Designers Challenge, Kay is challenging us to use a quote from Edgar Allan Poe on our project, I love having to do homework first as I don't know one quote of his, but learned that the man was a poet and writer and only lived for 40 years!!! I feel with his quotes that he was a bit of a crackpot!! and all the imagery concerning him is quite eery and gothic....which I do love, being a closet goth!!
Anyway, I chose this quote, and I paired it with the " Are My Pants Too Tight" Stampotique stamp...cos it is the weirdest (in a nice way!!) image that I own...YET,   I think I will save this card for my friend's she is a bit of a crackpot too, that is her charm!!!

Bling Bling

Phew!!! talk about last minute Lizzy again!! I have been gonna do this weeks challenge over at the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog all week, especially when craft royalty France Pappilon is hosting this weeks challenge, and it is all about the "bling".  Anyway, I have had this in my head all week and was so excited the be using one of my newest Stampotique Stamps called Large Butterfly, isn't it beautiful!!.
I used a few brusho crystals on an old book page for the background, then added some nail polish with silver glittery bits to some places, on a separate piece of paper I sprinkled some more brusho crystals then spritzed it with water, once dry I stamped the butterfly, cut it out and then applied some stickles glitter to it. You should see the Bling on this in real life, if I say so myself it is gorgeous, but as usual, the camera can never catch the sparkle.

Thanks a Ton!!

The challenge this month at the Hambo Hoedown is all about giving thanks, not necessarily Thanksgiving...tho I suppose it could be any sort of card to show your gratitude!!. For my card I have chosen to use the ELEPHANT rubber stamp, and the SIGN POSTS digi image, both from Hambo Stamps.
