3 card, 8 challenge kinda day!

You all know I like playing with challenges and it’s no surprise I try to combine them when I can. This weekend I found 8 challenges that I wanted to join in and was able to make 3 cards that fit the bill – way to maximise my crafty time!

First up is a card for:

I’m loving the range of CHristmas stamps that Stampin Up brought out this year and this the set I used for this card is so adorable and ‘punny’; it’s called So Santa. I stamped Santa and then coloured him with my Stampin blends, punched him out and added him with some dimensionals over a few strips of Santa’s workshop DSP, banner cut the sentiment and this card was done! Wouldn’t it be funny seeing Santa delivering via scooter – LOL


Next up is a card for:

I used another Stampin Up set called ‘First Frost’ that I stamped in Old Olive and Blackberry Bliss inks. This set has a watercoloury look to it and is so versatile. I love the soft feminine look you can achieve. I used the Tin Tile embossing folder for some texture behind my sentiment panel. My special occasion is Christmas  – I love this time of year but this year may be a bitter-sweet one as it might be my mum’s last one with us but I’m praying that they might find a treatment that holds her cancer at bay so we can get more time with her.


Lastly is a card for:

I love the JUGs colour scheme and thought I’d make a bright and happy birthday card. I have a great sentiment set from Mama Elephant called ‘Make a Wish’ that is perfect for the big, bold sentiment challenge and I used the Happy Birthday to You sentiment as my main focal point of the sketch, which is ink smooshed with Stampin Up Mango Melody and Pineapple Punch inks. I added a couple of black pen lines, a couple of stars and a thin line of turquoise card stock as a mat and the card was done.


Thanks for looking and have a great day.
