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:
- Global Design Project #144 – CASE the Designer
- Water Cooler Challenge #176 – Kath’s All About Christmas Challenge
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 Male Room Challenge #88 – Inspired by a film title
- CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #202 – Inspiration photo
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.
