My day job has been getting busier and busier as some critical project deadlines approach so I really needed to get crafty this weekend to save my sanity and my friend Michelle was happy to help out and have me over. Be warned this is a long post as my crafty mojo was flowing today!
This first card I made to play along with the current Seize the Birthday and CAS-ual Friday challenges.
I loved this sketch and knew I had the perfect stamp set for it from Altenew “Halftone Stars” and the sentiment from Cas-ual Fridays “Shenanigans” that I inked up in Stampin’ Up Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo, Poppy Parade and Basic Black. The black and white twine and sequins were the finishing touch. Another birthday card added to my stash!
This next card was inspired by 3 challenges:
I loved the little elephant on Tracey’s card and used an adorable stamp set by Penny Black for my main image. I think this little critter works for a kid card and it’s water coloured using the CAS Colors challenge colours.
Card #3 was based on the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches and then made it a masculine card to fit the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.
I struggle with masculine cards so having a sketch to work with helped focus my design. Not too cutsie I hope!
Next up a card for the current Fusion and Gerda Steiner Designs – Share your designs monthly challenges. I don’t have any harbour themed stamps so went with the sketch, which I flipped and relocated the sentiment.
I love this irreverent llama from Gerda Steiner and can see myself using him more.
Next up is a card for the Paper Craft Crew Challenge #289 which is a theme challenge.
I went with the Sprint theme for my card and played around with colouring the flowers in greens and orange and the black and white of the card base, sentiment and twine make the colours pop.
My final card is for the Calling all Sistahs challenge #13 which is an image, colour theme or both challenge.
I loved the blue tones and the geometric pattern of that stained glass ceiling. I used a stamp set from Ellen Hutson and Catherine Pooler Designs inks for the circles. The sentiment is from CAS-ual Fridays. Another great card for a male.
Well thanks for looking and have a great week.
