I got my craft on today – woot woot!
Everything just seemed to be aligned – time, inspiration and weather. Weather you say? Well it’s finally a bit cooler here which means being indoors is so much more pleasant without the heat and humidity we’ve been having lately.
So I went through my list of challenges to see what caught my eye and found lots of inspiration:
- CASology #289 Fit
- WWC159 – Marsha’s “All About Christmas” Challenge
- CAS-ual Friday CFC194 Beautiful Rainbows
- Just Us Girls #430 Balloons
First up is my CASology card – I played with the theme in a bit of tongue in cheek way using a cat from the Katzelkraft “Les Chats’ stamp set coloured with my prisma pencils and I created the sentiment on my computer. This is my type of exercise!
Up next is my card for the Watercooler Wednesday challenge. This card is going to be one of a set of cards for a new work colleague who is an apiarist wanting me to make ‘bee’ themed Christmas cards for her. I used the Stampin Up hexagon die plate to simulate the hive, the sentiment I created on my computer and the bee is a digital image from Freepik with an added Santa hat. I’m pretty happy with how this turned out and I’m hoping she’ll love it too.
Third card for the day is for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge. I used another Katzelkraft stamp set “Les Jungles” with the sentiment created on my computer again. I coloured him with my prisma pencils.
Lastly my card for the JUGS #430 challenge . This card is for Miss K who is turning 11 later this month. I’m glad I’m making it now as time will certainly get away from me with all the things I have to remember doing between now and then 🙂 I die cut my balloons using Avery Elle balloon dies and stamped the sentiments on the balloons from a Winnie & Walter set called ‘ring in the celebration’.
Well that’s it for today, thanks for looking and have a great day.
