Simon Says Stamp & Show Mad Tea Party (No Rules!)

Hello & Happy New Year's Eve!
This week's Stamp & Show Challenge is the Mad Hatter's Tea Party, so....AnYtHiNg GoEs!   Below are some gorgeous examples from 3 members of our Stamp & Show Design Team! 

Made by Anna-Karin!

 

Anna-Karin had this to say: What better way to end a year full of stamps, dies and inky fingers than to make a colorful Mad Hatter's tea party pop-up card, with additional surprises on the front. I used the same wonderful TJ Designs stamps as Candy did on her project. The 'shelf' of the Sizzix Party Phrase pop 'n cuts formed a fun stage for my mad tea party. The background was inked with Distress Inks and heavily misted, since a New Year's Party has to shine. The small Kaiser playing cards were almost made for this project, but where is the Queen of Hearts hiding?



Made by Tracey Kuznak!

 

Tracey had this to say: The theme of Mad Tea Party had me envisioning crazy bright wild colours, .so that was the starting point for my tag. I want big and bold, so these #10 manila tags really fit the bill, and so do the Dylusions spray inks in colours Bubblegum Pink,  Fresh LimeCrushed Grape, and Squeezed Orange. I wanted my tag to be fun and a little unexpected, and adding some doodling is new to me. I used these Sakura Pens for the black doodles, and added a little bling with Sakura Gelly Roll Metallic Pens. To finish off the tag I wanted a saying that would match the fun tag, so I choose one from this Dylan Reaveley's Quintessential Quotes Stamp Set , this was the only saying in this set I had yet to use- perfect!




Made by Dan!

 

Dan had this to say:  What with the holidays and one thing or another I haven't had time to make anything for this week's challenge, so I thought I share some photos of an old family album I found in the attic when I was looking for the Christmas lights.  There's only room here for a couple of pages and it's well before my time, so I'm not too sure who these folks are or who made the album!  I'll ask my mom if she can shed any light on it.  Obviously you won't have access to my family photos yourself, but if you wanted to make something similar you could probably use things like the Tattered Time paper stack and the Artistic Collages, Steampunk, Road Trip and Artful Artifacts stamp sets and a Bind-it-all machine.

  19. Flowers happen to be the most admirable gift option specially that have been brought to us by the courtesy of nature. Thus we always prefer to go for the flowers for any special day or occasion. The link www.giftbasketsmexico.com.mx has wonderful flower collections that are for Mexico.
