Sunday Serenity

All is quiet in my household today, mainly ’cause I shut my craft room door so I couldn’t hear anyone – LOL!

As per my usual M.O. I went to my list of challenges for inspiration.

First card off the rank is for The Card Concept, which has a photo of a set dining table for inspiration.


I was inspired by the gold cutlery and the orange flowers in the picture. I used a die from Simon Says Stamp called ‘Cosmo flower frame’ with some gold foil paper. The background piece I created with some alcohol inks on Yupo paper. I opted for no sentiment so that I could use the card for any occasion. I’m really happy with how this turned out.


Second card is for the Paper Craft Crew challenge which is all about By the Sea,


I kept this card simple in blue, black and white using a Simon Says Stamp set called ‘Sailing’. I added a little bit of white puffy paint to look like waves on the ocean.


My third card is for the current MUSE challenge. I loved the card Anita created and set to masking and sponging a panel on my card front.


I used a retired Stampin Up set called ‘Inspired by Nature’ stamped in black ink over my sponged panel in Shabby shutters, Crushed olive and Peeled paint distress inks. I added a little bit of water splatter for a rain drop effect. Another card I’m really happy with.


Well that’s it for todays’ crafting, I’m off to watch a bit of tv with Miss K.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

  2. All your cards are beautiful Tristan! I especially love the background you made with the alcohol inks and yupo paper. I just had a go with those things for the first time just the other day and they are so much fun to play with. Thanks so much for joining us this week at The Card Concept.

  3. All gorgeous cards! I love how you switched around the orientation of my card and love the blend of green tones with the grasses overstamped. Thanks so much for playing along at Muse this week, Anita x
