SoSS219: D is for Drunk

Took a bit of a break from household chores today to do some crafting.

I played along with the current challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers #219 – D is for Drunk.

I love their cheeky themes and knew I had a few stamp sets that would fit the challenge bill. I created an ink smooshed background with a few different red inks from Altenew. I then stamped the sentiment from Picket Fences ‘Sip Happens’ and stamped and die cut the bottle and glasses from PTI ‘Uncorked’.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Fusion: Autumn Leaves

Hello there, it’s time for another Fusion Challenge and do we have a great sketch and inspirational photo for you!

I was inspired by the colour scheme for my card. I used Stampin Up inks in Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry on the ‘Rays of Light’ stamp on a panel of SOft Sky cardstock. I added a silhouette snowboarder and sentiment from Avery Elle ‘Dude’ and added it to a black cardbase.

Just Add Ink #623 – Just Add Colour Combo

Hello there, it’s time for another Just Add Ink Challenge and do we have a great colour combo for you!

I often struggle with colour combos and decided to go with some sponging on a white panel which I then cut with a floral cover die from Paper Roses and added a sentiment from Uniquely Creative.

Love how simple this was to make, yet how pretty it came out!

End of long weekend crafting

It’s been quite some time since I’ve been able to craft without any interruptions and play along with a few challenges.

We’ve had an extra long weekend here in Melbourne and with Miss K away camping with her botfriend, I’ve been able to play in my craft room guilt free!

I’ve made 4 cards for 4 challenges.

First up is a card for the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers 218 – K is for Kraft and this might be the first time my card has not been snarky!

I used a kraft card base and stamped the Altenew ‘Sketched Evergreen’ tree in White, then Old Olive and then Mossy Meadow ink. I found the white ink helped the 2 greens pop off the Kraft cardstock. I then did some offset stamping for the sentiment.

Next up is a card for Less is More 474 – Friendship.

I used a stamp set I got in a craft magazine called ‘Best friends’ that I coloured with my Stampin Blends.

My third card is for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge 180. I chose the 3rd vertical options of flowers, circle and berries

I decided to make a Christmas ornament with the Stampin Up ‘Mistletoe Magic’ stamp set and matching dies. I then added a couple of die cut tiny poinsettias along with some ribbon to hang it on the tree.

My final card is for the Global Design Project 361 – Color Combo.

I used the Pink Fresh ‘Floral Focus’ stamp set and matching stencils for my card along with a sentiment from Uniquely Creative.

Will that’s it for today. Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Hello there, it’s time for another challenge over at AAA Cards and do we have a great theme for you!
