Purple Mr Potatoe Head

Today i thought i would have some fun
playing with the Mr Spud (potatoe)
I have always loved these spud people from Alota
and love making the hats colourful to suit any
time of the year (he comes in heaps of sizes and
lefts and rights facing as well).
Might leave them on my table for a while and see
what other cards i can put them on.

Monsters everywhere Part 2

Here is another i could not resist in turning
into monsters ink topic
stamp is alota

Monsters everywhere

This teabag stamp was made as gingerbread
men but when i had it cut and folded and ready
to colour an add came on the tv for monsters inc
movie and i thought hmm i want to make this card
a monster instead and here is what i came up with
hope you like it .
The stamp is an alota stamp (and the good thing about
this stamp is it has two designs on it so you can
choose either end to make up and discard the other
so it is two stamps in one)

Puppy LOVE in a box

After making the Puppy Love card HERE
I had all this base card left so i put it to use
on this card
the medallion was made using the teabag
stamps from Alota.



P.S. I will be sharing all patterns in time
please just give me time to tweak them and make
sure that they work perfectly. I have had many requests
for patterns that i have not included yet and the only
reason for them not on my blog as they need tweaking
(on unless they are copyright and would have said that in
the post)

Surf's UP decorate how you like

With the Release of the new SURF's UP
set of stamps that I designed for Alota,
While i was designing them i decided
to make the surf boards blank so with a
little bit of colour or even stamps they
can have many different looks. Oh and even
made the wording to fit the big surf board
perfectly so you can stamp it on the surf board if you
with too.

The sand is torn pieces of yellow card stock.

P.S. Robot want to know where was the robot on
this card. Just cause they are designed with the
Robot in mind they can go with lots of other things out
there in that big world i told him.
