Vintage with IWC

It's been a while since I have managed to create something for Ikes World Challenges, I am hoping this is the start of me getting some crafting time back now!

The theme this fortnight is Vintage, I have used the gorgeous Easter Chicklets for my piece. Now I know we are close to Christmas and I've used an Easter image, but it reminds me of a vintage Easter card I saw once. I've also used some vintage lace on my card.

Metal Madness with Smudgy Antics

After the craziness of last month it is nice to get back to a bit of normality. Today starts the brand new challenge over at Smudgy Antics, as always the challenge is anything goes but if you need some inspiration you can use the optional twist of metal madness. The rules are very simple, create anything you want but you must use a Smeared Ink stamp on there somewhere, the stamp can be rubber or digital and doesn't need to be one that is currently in the shop. 

For my first piece this month I have made a digital page, the stamp I chose to work with is called Behind. I started with colouring her in with Spectrum Noir pens then scanning her to add to the digital page. 



I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Day 31 of 31 days 2015

Yay we've made it!! Ok so I have only just made it but I am glad I have stuck it out. My piece today is a digtal scrapbook page using the sentiment from Smeared Ink's Mad Science digi set. The photo is of my youngest who after our plans changed decided he would go trick or treating...of course this was only 20 minutes before he actually wanted to go so it was a mad scramble to find him something. It is a good job my house is filled with weird things. 

Thank you to all of you that have taken the time each day to come and visit and leave some love, it really is the only thing that has kept me going.

Day 29 of 31 days 2015

So today I have learned that I actually don't give a shit how much Gareth paid for his damn sofa, whether it was 10% more or 15% less. I also really don't care about the fraction of people that would drink water over coffee if there was a water machine available. Equally I have no interest in the distance someone travels to and from work depending on any alternative routes they have to take.

Yup this assignment is not exactly good fun!

Anyway here is my piece for the day. I have used Smeared Inks Horns on this digi card.

Day 28 of 31 Days 2015

Oh Boy what a challenge this has been this month! So even though I said I would be organised this week as I am off work it's not quite worked. What I didn't factor in was having 2 exams and an assignment all due for Uni so I've had my head stuck in my Maths books...I can now tell you the probability of any of the remaining days being organised is very slim!

Today I am sharing a card I have made using Smeared Ink's Candy Girl

Day 26 of 31 Days 2015

So I am starting today's post with a reminder to myself...next time you decide to take all your pc's apart make sure you do your post first!!  On a plus note I now have 2 gaming pc's and another spare...just in case :)


Today I am sharing an upcycled piece. This little tub started it's life as a single cream tub. I started by painting the whole thing with black paint then added some paper, washi tape and letters from some Tim Holtz card to have the word PUMPKIN around it. on the top I added some little beads used for nail art and some Graphic 45 paper. When the lid is taken off this little cutie is hanging in there, I printed her out twice one of the images flipped so I could have the image back to back. You can find the gorgeous stamp at smeared Ink here

Day 24 of 31 Days 2015

I got so carried away making things this afternoon I forgot to actually post one of them!

I am sharing a little business card holder today, it has been ages since I made one of these last so figured it was about time :)

The stamps I've used are from Smeared Ink rubber set A Little Bit Batty.

Day 20 of 31 Days 2015

Today I am sharing an ATC I've stamped with Tim Holtz stamps, but before I do thank you to everyone who played along with my little game yesterday. You were correct in saying it was a 3½-inch floppy disc. I have got so many of these laying around the place and I love to recycle so it seemed the perfect base for a little wall hanging. 
I put everyone's names into a tub and got my youngest to pick one out, the lucky winner is.....Lyneen! Please drop me an email at happycraftershell@gmail.com with your address and I will get this and some other goodies in the post to you x

Here is my ATC for today.

Hello! Day 19 already and I've finally got myself organised LOL

The stamps I've used today are from Smeared Inks Candy is Dandy

day 17 of 31 Days 2015

I've got a digital page to share again today. I really wanted to use one of the photos I took of the Halloween decorations at Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen. I was totally gutted when I realised that it was closed until the following week as it looked amazing!!
The stamp I've used today is Devil Boy from Smeared Ink

Day 16 of 31 Days 2015

After forgetting that today was Friday, that today was even a day at all is about how my day went today, so I'm sitting down to my dinner and I think out loud "Shiitake Mushrooms!!  I've forgot today's piece!" (maybe I should be leaving all of the horrendous typos in this too just for the laugh, like forgot spelled fogrot....we all love a bit of Fog Rot right?)

So back to the post, I am aware I am rather (VERY) late....but better late than never.

I've made an ATC using card from a cardboard box and the stamps are from Smeared Ink's Quoth the Raven Rubber set.
