Sunday Crafting

So I’m back in my craft room this morning as this afternoon I’m going back to my mum’s house to clear out the remainder of her clothes and I knew I would need to get my mind set for the task.

First up is a card for the challenges over at The Library Challenge, CAS Mix Up and The Flower Challenge.

I was inspired by the word ‘note’ on the book and decided to make the front of my card look like a couple of ‘note’ pages torn from a notebook using a notepad die. I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Stampin Up set called ‘First Frost’ in Lovely Lipstick and Granny Apple Green inks. The sentiment is from Stampin Up ‘Part of my story’ – this is my newest set to get inky!

Next up is a card for CAS Colours & Sketches and Freshly Made Sketches.

I love how soft this colour combo is and thought it would look lovely on the Wonderful Romance stamp set from Stampin Up. I kept my card super CAS and placed the main floral image along the base of the card matching the FMS sketch.

Next up is a card that just makes me smile. It’s for the current challenges at CASology and Just Add Ink.

I recently bought a crafting magazine that had a stamp set attached (called new Year New You)and I just knew the bunny had to be coloured and the sentiment was perfect to be gold heat embossed. I did some ink smooshing for the background and water coloured the bunny. I added a little bit of gold thread behind the gold edged circle, distressed the edges of the ink smooshed background and the card was done.

Isn’t he just adorable?!

Well, that’s it for today. Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  4. What a fabulous, varied trio of cards ! I love the gym bunny card – so cute and funny. Your card for The Note is a great interpretation of the challenge – I love the combo of functional stationary-style( the notebook pages ) with the super-pretty flowers and sentiment. Thanks for joining The Library.
