Simon says stamp and show

Okay, I made another card inspired by Lord Tim of Holtz for Simon Says Stamp and Show this week.
Well, kind of. The materials used are very Lord Tim of Holtz, but the inspiration comes from the amazingly talented Lin Brown, and her first project on Tim's DT (see, it all comes back to him... Linda Elbourne will hopefully be impressed...)
I recreated Lin's background, using paint dabbers and Tim's alphabet masks (it was very messy and great fun). The tag is coloured with distress inks, I have used his wonderful tissue tape and (for the first time) used his tiny attacher on the picture.
I hope you like it, and I hope it is admissable for S4!

The start of Christmas cards

As Christmas is just around the corner (for card makers anyway)... I thought I'd better get started! Both of these cards take techniques and inspiration from the Tim Holtz 12 Tages of Christmas from last year. By the time he starts his 12 tags (December) I am finished my Christmas cards for the year, so I tend to do them the next year!

Sian's birthday card

Now that Sian has received her birthday card I can Blog it.
I had to go with cats (of course) and decided to use a more vintage look. The cats stamp is from Crafty Individuals.
