Sunday Stamper - Week 186 - Do Anything You Wanna Do

Goodly Morning Stampers... nope, I haven't lost the plot and a whole day... this is the Sunday Stamper on a Saturday ... being as we will all be a little bit preoccupied with stuffing turkeys and opening pressies tomorrow. As ever, thank you all for your fabby festive entries to last weeks challenge... and... I have popped the amount of comments/entries into Mr Random.org and he picked the winner to be JACQUELINE. Congrats and please can you email me your addy! Right, on with this weeks theme which is, as the title suggests, ANYTHING. How simples is that?! You can make absolutely anything you like with any kind of theme... just include some stamping... and then hop back here and leave me a comment with a link to the place you are showing your entry. The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 31st December 2011.




So... I made a tag! I know, how strange for me to make a tag (not) I used lots of lush goodies on it, starting with the background which is a mix of Broken China and Stormy Sky Distress Stains, smooshed on my craft sheet with a smidge of Picket Fence Stain and then spritzed and dried. I did a bit of stamping using Chipped Sapphire and some snowflake images... and then dolloped a big old layer of Rock Candy Crackle over the top. Once this was dry, I rubbed Picket Fence Stain over the top so it sat into the crackles.




I had a major mishap with the bauble. Well, I know it is not unheard of for me to be injuring myself but this time I really went for it! I decided to cut the bauble (Alterations Die - Ornaments 2) out of mountboard... but... this got stuck inside the die blades. So, I used my Alterations Pokey Tool to try and get it out... and my hand slipped and said Pokey Tool shot off the end of the die and straight into my index finger! It wasn't only the tag that was blue I can tell you (more dosh in the swear-pot!) I now have a swelling the size of a melon... well, ok, tis the size of a big pea but... the bruise... ohlallaaa... and then to cap that off, I was pouring boiling water from the kettle into my hot water bottle and the water bubbled out of the bottle and all over the same hand! Well, at least the Pokey Tool injury got sterilised!




Anyways... I eventually cut the bauble from Grungeboard and followed the instructions for Tim's Day 1 tag.... Glue & Seal and glitter... and then made a little border for the bottom with some Grunge, an OTE die and some vintage tinsel.... and added Idea-ology to the tag to finish it. Anyways... tis time for me to go and start prepping the veggie and making stuffing balls... I love this part of Christmas, today is probably my favest day... along with Christmas Day and Boxing Day lol Anyways... all that is left for me to do is to say MERRY CHRISTMAS to you all.. may your Christmas be merry and bright! TTFN
