Sunday Challenges

Today I am crafting on my own as Miss K is at her Grandma’s for a few days – school holidays have started here and they love to have time together – yesterday they went to the stage production of Wizard of Oz.

So what’s a mum to do when she has free time? Get crafty of course!

First card up for today fits the bill of 2 challenges:

For my card I used the ‘Build a christmas tree’ die from La La Land, some SU ‘Santa & Co’ DSP and a sentiment from Uniko Studio’s ‘Rustic Christmas’ set. This was a nice and easy card to pull together.


Next is a card for :

I used a new to me set from MFT called ‘BB Polar Bear Pals’, that I coloured in with my SU Stampin Blends. I cut the SU Pool Party cardstock with a wavy line and bent the sentiment along the line – this was made easier by using my MISTI.


I love this guy, he’s super cute in his wintery scarf.

Lastly is a card for another 2 challenges:

The photo inspired me with my colour theme, as I think fireworks have such beautiful orange and yellow hues. This then lead to the idea of fire and flames and with the sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays ‘Frankly’ had me thinking of Gone with the Wind. I got out my alcohol inks in sunset orange and sunset yellow plus a little bit of gold foil on some the tacky ink.


I hope you agee with me that this looks a bit like fireworks exploding in the sky.

Well, thanks for looking and have a great day.

  2. A trio of beauties! That Christmas tree die is really cool and reminds me I need to get a move on with Christmas cards! Your alcohol ink design is gorgeous especially with the gold matting. As for your bear? Great use of the sketch (that one stumped me this week) and I love how the sentiment follows the curve of the blue. Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!
