Mackintosh and a Snowman


This is a combined post for my DT work at Stamping Sensations challenge and We Love Chocolate Baroque challenge.  Please scroll down to see my second make for Stamping Sensations.

My DT make for We Love Chocolate Baroque challenge. uses my favourite Mackintosh WindowsMackintosh Beauty and Amazing Mackintosh Words stamps. That's because this month we want to see your "favourite stamps".

I had this background already in my box of makes. I always associate these colours with CRM and so I was able to line up the stamps on the larger piece to make best use of the splodges of purple. It's purple metallic acrylic paint so shimmers in real life too.

The prize is from Chocolate Baroque as always and are stamps of the winners choice to the value of £25

There will be two Chocolate Baroque shows on The Craft Store on Friday 6th August at 9am and 1pm, one show will feature two excitingly different A4 stamp sets from new artist Fiona Randall and the second some beautiful Christmas stamps and new seasonal sentiments.


At Stamping Sensations challenge this month our theme is "Celebrations" and our sponsor is Craft Stash. This is the prize...

I've gone with Christmas as my pile of cards is looking a little bereft at the moment.

I stamped directly onto a kraft card blank this TH snowman and then stamped and using the die that comes with it cut out of white card colouring parts of the image.

You cannot beat the Mackintosh style for grace and elegance can you? I've just ordered a CB Mackintosh style plate. Your CB card is gorgeous especially with all that lush purple, I love it. It is a pleasure to be joining you all at we love CB as your guest designer thank you for having me. x

I love that technical Snow(person)....I'm being very PC here and looks rally good on Kraft. And Mackintosh Beauty pops well from the purples of the backdrop.

Glad you have made use of that background, what a fabulous colour, perfect for that stamp. Your snowman looks great on the kraft base too. The pops of red and green are great finishing touches xx
