Stampotique Challenge time!

Snowy Fran by Daniel Torrente for Stampotique
Chilly, French Text, Hearts Cubed by Jo Capper-Sandon for Stampotique
Splatter by Carol's Collection for Stampotique
Ink sprays by Dylusions  

I have decided to put my 'Bah Humbug' attitude to one side for this challenge, because Jo has come up with a really great Christmas challenge for us all this week.... we have been challenged to 'wrap those last minute gifts in a Stampotique way'. Fab challenge!

I drew a pyramid box template onto white card, sprayed with 3 shades of Dylusions inks, and then stamped French Text and Splatter (with Archival inks) to add some pattern and texture. I added a snow-person to each side of the pyramid, and then I gave Snowy Fran a heart hanging off her little twiggy arms LOL! 

Come and join this fun challenge. All the details can be found on the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog. Come and play!


  1. Oh Kate this is great! Love the colours and the stamps. Sometimes I wishes to live in England so I can buy regulary Stampotique stamps of my choise. These snowmans are great

  4. I love the little hearts at the end of the ribbons Kate! What a great touch. As you know I'm a little mad about Christmas and I think this box is glorious, so much attention to detail, and it shows. The red looks really festive against the snow people. I like it LOTS and LOTS! See putting aside the humbugness has proved to be very positive! :) Michelle x
