TIO #80 - Fishes





Hello, Janet here. How lovely to be able to host this week's TIO challenge again! My theme is Fish... Plenty of inspiration out there.

Where I live, between the mighty River Spey and the River Deveron in the north east of Scotland, fishing is a big deal. None more important than salmon and trout fishing. Men (and some women) spend hours up to their waists in the icy water trying to catch these mighty fish.

Do come and join us this week, we would love to see your creative talents put to use on this fishy theme. So dream away, but please remember to use at least one real stamp in your creation...

TIO #79 - All the Write Postage

Good Morning, Zoe here. It is Wednesday again, don't they come round quickly!   We, the new DreamTeam are so pleased that you are enjoying the challenges so frustrating with the Blogger problems last week it seems our new Linky tool had a problem, sure it will all be OK this week, hope so it's great fun for us dreaming up the challenges to inspire your dreams and creativity and then seeing your takes on it all.

So this week it is my turn to dream, and the challenge is to make All the Write Postage... It is the now dim and distant days when the lady at the post office stamped your post when you took it in..... remember that "bang bang" as she thumped the stamp down, no delicate inking and placing for her LOL!!  Of course before you had anything to put in the post you had to write it with a pen or pencil (or crayon!). If you sent a postcard or unsealed envelope the cost was less than sealed letters and there were two deliveries a day... best yet no junk mail!

Well why not post a tag?? It has two sides, one to decorate and one to put the address on, so with all that in mind this week's dream is to Write it and then Post it.    Sweet Dreams - oh, and please don't forget to use at least one real stamp.

Once again, my teamies have done us all proud... Lots of inspiration there, I think... I hope you get a chance to dream with us again this week, and that blogger does not curtail all our efforts!! I just want you to have a go, and enjoy your dreaming...
Love and light

TIO #78 - Texturise It

Hello there, Wanda here... well can you believe this is now week 3 with the new design team on board. Your entries last week were fabulous, so this week's theme is "Texturise It".

We want you to dream texture with us in whatever way you wish. There are so many in which you can add texture to your tags. In the main I have used dry embossing, using my trusty cuttlebug and an embossing folder, and texture paste. I hope my offerings and those of my fellow design team members will inspire you enough to join in with us this week. And don't forget to use at least one real stamp...

Now, not that I am indecisive or anything, but I ended up creating two tags and couldn't decide which to post so here are both. Can you see a repetitive theme emerging with my tags? Not that I am fond of birds or anything!

Full details on how I created them can be found on my blog. I hope you feel inspired enough by our offerings to join us this week in dreaming "texture".

So without further ado, here they are:

Love and light

TIO #77 - Colour my World

Hello, it is Helen here hosting this week's theme - I have chosen a colour theme. Before I tell you what that is, we just want to say thank you for stopping by last week and to those of you who took up the dream!

So, without further ado, I challenge you to use purple - and you are allowed one accent colour of your choice. Oh, and please remember to use at least one real stamp.

It took me some time to finally decide on my colour - I have so many favourite colours - but I knew the stamp I wanted to use for it - it is fast becoming a favourite of mine! Purple is historically associated with royalty and so, in the week of the Royal Wedding, (well it was when I was preparing my sample!) it seemed appropriate.

I have used Tim Holtz's Papillon background stamp and his butterfly dies (newly purchased, specially!!) that I die cut with Wendy Vecchi's Clearly for Art film (also specially bought, though it's been a must have for a while, this just spurred me on!) You can see more details of how I created this on my own blog, as you can with the rest of the DreamTeam...
