A different take on the stamp challenge by Lizzie Slouthouber ...

Lizzie Slothouber from Perth, Australia, made this little album using a variety of stamps. Some of the materials and techniques she used are:
  • Circular Paper Clip,
  • Alphabet beads,
  • Alphabet Stamps,
  • Hero Arts stamped into Violet coloured Opals (Aussie version of UTEE),
  • Metal Circular Alpha buttons: Making Memories,
  • Butterfly adornments: Unknown source,
  • Journalling on vellum using computer fonts,
  • Fern stamps by Artee (in Perth & Melbourne, AU),
  • stamp pad: Stamp-It, USA,
  • Word stamps unknown unmounted stamps from USA – gift from stamping friend ...
Thanks Lizzie!



Lizzie made this stylish card 'Serendipity' (see picture below) using the following materials:

  1. Stamps:
    * Background script: A Stamp in the Hand, USA (Kat Okamoto’s handwriting)
    * Serendipity: Collections, Australia (Julie Van Oosten)
  2. Within the collage .. is actual torn Australian new postage stamps featuring the WWII soldiers, mulberry skeleton leaf, tiny Beedz, gold leaf – swiped over with the Versamark (clear) stamp pad then melted 3 layers of clear UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel marketed by Suze Weinberg, USA ) to give that thick glazed effect.
  3. Background: honeycomb black squares – greeting wrap paper by Hallmark
  4. Brass Split pins
  5. Stamp pad: Stamp It – Archival Brown

She also wanted to share another project. This project came about due to an online discussion Lizzie was having with another respected Queensland Aussie Stamper/Scrapper: Deslie Gordon, who challenged me to do UTEE collage projects. This was the result:

Lizzie also wanted to share an idea with us all: "Keep the Ferrero Rocher Chocolate acrylic/plastic boxes… they are perfect to store your tools, materials or even the perfect size for photos too! "

You have been busy Lizzie. Love the collaged squares with the Opals and I also have a habit of using the Ferrero containers like you - they just don't bounce well!
